The scientists concluded that muon neutrinos taking the longer routes had time to oscillate
into other flavors that were more difficult for their detector to see.
Theorists resolve the conflicting results by having electron neutrinos in the solar experiments oscillate
into sterile neutrinos.
By supercooling a beryllium atom with a laser, then prodding it with a rapid sequence of laser pulses, the physicists have managed to get the atom to oscillate
in such a way that it exists "in the bizarre state of being in two well-separated positions at once.
The plate is free to oscillate
between the rings, causing the fiber to twist and untwist.
Now, researchers are developing a catalog of effects that astronomers can look for when seeking to determine whether galaxies actually oscillate
By adding a battery to force a sufficiently strong current through a Josephson junction, one can cause the voltage generated in the device to oscillate
The researchers studied the breakup of rapidly rotating drops and the transition to chaotic motion as sound waves forced stationary drops to oscillate
Because bubbles of different diameters oscillate
at different frequencies, this discovery opens up the possibility of using "long-range listening" to determine raindrop size distributions and, ultimately, to measure rainfall rates over the ocean.
Air bubbles in water can sometimes oscillate
, rhythmically expanding and contracting at a characteristic rate.
