The authors show that the solutions of Maxwell’s equations in vacuum admit electromagnetic waves having oscillations not only in electromagnetic field but also in spatial displacement. The fact that the existence of such a spatial component of the electromagnetic wave has remained hidden from observations can be directly related to the gauge invariance. It is shown that the existence of the spatial oscillations can be attributed to a new basic field which appears to contribute major part of the energy of the electromagnetic wave with the electromagnetic field accounting for the remaining. The authors hint that the new field may be identified with the Higgs field.
