The waves with the shortest wavelength - gamma rays.

In the electromagnetic spectrum, as the wavelength decreases, the frequency and the energy of the wave increase.

The types of EM radiation, listed in order of increasing energy, are:
Radio waves
Visible light
X rays
Gamma rays

The energy levels of these waves varies from approximately 0.2 microelectron volts (radio waves) up to nearly 2.5 million electron volts (gamma rays).
