Is there is theoretical limit on how large a frequency (or how small a wavelength) an EM wave can have?

How can you draw this conclusion?tim_lou said:If there is a limit then either the Doppler's shift is completely wrong for ultra high frequency or there is a bound (less than c) on how fast one can travel with respect to a source of a light.
So what happens in a photon-photon collision? There should be infinite frequencys involved?tim_lou said:in Doppler's effect, the frequency goes to infinity as one approaches a light source close to the speed of light... so if there is a limit on how high frequency goes and Doppler's effect is correct, then there is limit (lower than c) on how fast one can travel toward a light source. similarly, if there is a lower bound on frequency, then there is a limit (lower than c) on how fast one can travel away from a light source.
CPL.Luke said:actually if you pump enough energy into a photon it will entually become a different kind of boson, I forgot the particulars however.
Certainly. I didn't mean that tim_lou's conclusion have to be wrong, I know doppler effect equation and how it works. Mine was just a question.tehno said:lightarrow:
Infinities are very frequently serious problems in physics.
The theoretical limit on frequency is the highest possible frequency that can be achieved in a system. It is determined by factors such as the speed of light and the properties of the medium through which the frequency is traveling.
The theoretical limit on frequency is important because it sets boundaries on the capabilities of communication systems. It helps engineers and scientists understand the limitations of current technology and push for advancements to reach higher frequencies.
It is currently believed that the theoretical limit on frequency cannot be surpassed. However, there is ongoing research and experimentation to find ways to potentially exceed this limit.
The theoretical limit on frequency has a direct impact on everyday technology, as it dictates the speed and efficiency of communication systems and electronic devices. As technology advances, we are able to reach higher frequencies and improve the performance of these devices.
If we are able to reach the theoretical limit on frequency, it could lead to significant advancements in communication technology, including faster data transfer, more efficient wireless networks, and more powerful computing devices. It could also open up new possibilities in fields such as medicine, astronomy, and research.
