The Lilly Wave

John C. Lilly was a neuroscientist who invented the Lilly wave or the Lilly pulse, which is a balanced bidirectional pulse pair, which looks as follows.


This wave is useful because it does not damage brain tissue when an electric current is applied to the brain via electrodes. Using this waveform prevents both thermal and electrolytic damage. You can read more about the Lilly wave here: The Lilly Wave.

Also, what is somewhat controversial is that the Lilly wave is used in mind control because this waveform does not fatigue the brain or damage its tissues.

You can download the Lilly wave version of the PEMF frequencies described in the earlier blog postings in the following table.

[June 22, 2014] If you downloaded any of these Lilly wave files before June 22, 2014, please download them again. The script I used to create the zip files installed the standard pulse wave frequencies, not the Lilly wave frequencies. These zip file have been corrected.

  2. Wow, thank you for this site! I have been pining over a $4000 pemf device for half a year now. I can’t believe I didn’t even think to make one myself. Is there any advantage to fet a trifield meter over a gauss meter? Obviously it is more expensive. Thanks!

    • For this application, either one ought to work well. But for finding other sources of electrosmog or EMF pollution, the TriField meter shines, as it can also find electric field, radio and microwave pollution. The TriField does not go into the high frequency ranges of cell phones or wifi, but the company that makes that meter has one that can, and there are other players too. See

    • Hi erin,
      The Lilly wave is gentler than the pulse wave. The Lilly wave is a sine-like wave that is balanced, where as the pulse is a 5% duty cycle square wave, with positive offset. I like using the Lilly wave for sleep because it is gentle, however if I need something more powerful I use the pulse wave.

  4. Hello, thank you very much for all your research, right now I am very interested in the Lilly wave, my intention is to make a Lilly Wave generator on the Arduino platform to drive a transcranial current stimulation system. Would it be possible to know the programming code to generate such waveform?

    Thanks and greetings from Mexico.
