DEFINITION
System Generated Electromagnetic Pulse

Transient electromagnetic radiation caused by the photoelectron emission of the surface of an object subjected to a pulse of photon energy. Although local fields close to the object surface may reach quite high values (kilovolts), the primary disturbance mechanism is the flow of replacement current through the object in order to produce charge equalization.
