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.

To address these challenges, Fujitsu Laboratories developed an ultra-large transmission capacity optical wavelength-division multiplexing system (a patent application was filed) that batch converts C-band optical signals output by a transmitter into new wavelengths for transmission, and then converts them back to the original wavelength band before sending them to the receiver.
This is possible because the company has more than 30 products with different wavelength, light quantity and irradiation angle.
If, however, you already knew all about the relation between wavelengths of light and colour, good for you.
If the optical path difference is less than the equivalent wavelength, the real phase of specimens can be directly obtained without unwrapping.
The mutual mapping between wavelength and position coordinates is introduced to solve the nonlinear dispersion problem, as cross-correlation of exit slit with monochromatic images is carried out on a uniformly spaced position grid, while the SRF is a function of wavelength described in the wavelength domain.
The bursts carried by the HC are still switched on the burst-by-burst basis at the core nodes; therefore, the wavelength resource assigned to a given HC can be reused by other flows during the burst-send interval time.
If you shine white light onto red paint it absorbs all the wavelengths except the long wavelengths we see as red.
Also, a joint technical paper authored by ARRIS and Cisco engineers entitled "When Wavelengths Collide, Chaos Ensues: Engineering Stable and Robust Full Spectrum Multi-Wavelength HFC Networks" will be presented at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo technical forum in Atlanta, GA on 17 November 2011 from 13:00 hours to 14:15 hours.
The standard model has a high wavelength accuracy of [+ or -]0.02 nm in the C+L band, and the high-performance unit supports [+ or -]0.01-nm wavelength accuracy in the C band.
This work describes a procedure for acquiring a spectrum of an analyte over an extended range of wavelengths and validating the wavelength and intensity assignments.
