Does EM Wave induce emf in coil?

  1. May 20, 2012 #1
    Does electromagnetic waves induced emf or current in the coil or inductor due to faraday law as the magnetic field is continously changing in em wave?

    It means each & every em wave in the em spectrum will produce faradays law effect? Which in turn means visible light in em spectrum also induce current as other EM Wave induces? Am I Right?
