Photons and magnets

  1. Aug 3, 2009 #1
    if light is elctromagnetic wave, and magnet emits magntic waves, why can't i make an influence on the light?

    magntic waves, if i'm not mistakening, are the field which all the rays are connected to, and not acting as elctromagnetic waves (rays). so a magnet should influence that field

    thank you
