  • Emission (radiocommunications), the radio signal (usually modulated) emitted from a radio transmitter
  • Emission coefficient, a coefficient in the power output per unit time of an electromagnetic source
  • Emission factor
  • Emission line, or "spectral line", a dark or bright line in an otherwise uniform and continuous spectrum
  • Emission nebula, a cloud of ionized gas emitting light of various colors
  • Emission spectroscopy, photoemission spectroscopy, flame emission spectroscopy and other types of spectroscopy
  • Emission standard, requirements that set specific limits to the amount of pollutants that can be released into the environment
