A powdered and compressed ferric oxide material that has both magnetic properties and light resistance to current flow .
A ferrite device that blocks the flow of energy through a waveguide by rotating the electric field 90 degrees. The rotated energy is then reflected or absorbed .
A highly magnetic material, such as iron, cobalt, nickel, or their alloys .
The cylindrical metallic ends of a cartridge fuse .
Conductors or optical waveguides that readily pass light .
An outer covering used to protect a conductor's insulating material. Commonly made from cotton, linen, silk, rayon, or fiberglass .
(1) The faithful reproduction of a signal. (2) The accuracy with which a system reproduces a signal at its output that faithfully maintains the essential characteristics of the input signal    .
The electromagnet which furnishes the magnetic field that interacts with the armature in motors and generators .
The creation of a steady magnetic field within the field windings by the
application of a dc voltage either from the generator itself or from an external source .
FIELD OF FORCE
A term used to describe the total force exerted by an action-at-a-distance
phenomenon such as gravity upon matter, electric charges acting upon electric charges, and magnetic forces acting upon other magnets or magnetic materials .
