Difference between electromagnetic waves and matter waves in tabular form

Electromagnetic waves     Matter waves
These waves have electric and magnetic fields associated with them. Matter waves have no electric and magnetic fields associated with them.
These waves can easily pass through vacuum. These waves cannot pass through vacuum.
                                                                                                     These waves have fixed velocities. Matter waves have velocities less than velocities of light and depend on situation.
Wavelengths of these waves can be measured easily. Their wavelengths cannot be measured easily.
These rays are emitted from source in space. These waves are associated with material particles ,they do not exist without material particles.
Energies of these waves are quantized.   Energies of these waves are not quantized.
