Wave

A short-term movement that goes against the general trend. For example, if the DJIA rallies on a given trading day but overall is in the midst of a prolonged bear market, the rally is called a wave against the bearish tide.

Caption: Light math A new simulation shows that a light wave (red squiggle, left) entering into a specially designed structure (cube) can be transformed into the original light wave's derivative (right), a common computation in calculus.
So, when a particle attaches to the ring, it disturbs the light wave, changing the resonant frequency.
As a light wave travels from one medium, such as air, into another, such as water, it follows Snell's law: When light refracts, it does so on the other side of an imagined line perpendicular to the water's surface.

That means that the electric and magnetic fields that make up a light wave vibrate only in particular directions.
That's because light waves travel faster than sound waves.
PixArt's Heart Rate Monitor sensor deploys the photoplethysmogram (PPG) technique, which transmits LED light waves into the skin of the user and measures the response change caused by absorption due to pulsating arterial blood.
In optical communication, signals are carried on light waves known as carriers.
The 80 nanometre thick film is made from gold "nanoantenna" blocks that interfere with the normal scattering of light waves.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Engineers developed an ultracompact beamsplitter -- the smallest on record -- for dividing light waves into two separate channels of information.
Like this example, all the light waves from lasers have the same wavelength, making them just one colour, and the waves are aligned (or 'in phase').
