Maximun wave frequency calculation

  1. May 22, 2009 #1
    Hi, every boby
    If we consider the fomula E=h*v and v=E/h .
    There should be no limit to the value of v as E can be very hight.
    Any way gamma ray is the upper limit known today.
    Does frequencies higher than gamma ray exist ?
    Is there a formula for the calculation of this limit ?
    Let me know.

    There is no known upper limit to gamma ray energy or frequency.
    The term "gamma ray" just refers to any high energy photon.
