Biophotonic energy was created from the concepts of ‘bio’ and ‘photon’:

  • When combined with other words, the Greek prefix ‘bio’ translates to meaning ‘life’.
  • A photon is a particle representing a quantum of light or other electromagnetic radiation. A photon carries energy proportional to the radiation frequency but has zero rest mass. Because of their zero mass, photons can travel at the ‘speed of light’. Photons behave in some ways like particles, little bits of stuff, and in other ways like waves.
  • The waves of photons come in different lengths, most are not visible to the human eye.
