In the case of superposition, the researchers showed that the photons were simultaneously particle-like and wavelike.
Indeed, for the PMMA/PE pair, in addition to the wavelike form at the interface, the solid co-extruded bilayer could be easily delaminated by hand since there is no adhesion between neighboring layers.
Unveiled four months ago and already a magnet for picnicking couples and families, the manmade hills and crroyo of Ken Genser Square and Tongva Park (named, respectively, for a former mayor and a local indigenous people) contain drought-tolerant native grasses and succulents, hill slides and forts for kids, and observation decks shaded by dreamily wavelike metal trellises facing the Pacific, tongvapark.
The dilated small intestine speeds up the rate of peristalsis--or wavelike contractions--of the small intestines, producing cramping.
The wavelike movement effecting the economic system, the recurrence of periods of boom which are followed by periods of depression is the unavoidable outcome of the attempts, repeated again and again, to lower the gross market rate of interest by means of credit expansion.
Take, for example, the splashes of pigment around the thick, linear brushstrokes in Quasi dipinto (Almost Painted), 1968, or the way in which the wavelike lines of Festone (Festoon), 1984--each colored differently, with paint that was applied rapidly, while still wet--bleed into one another to create tie-dye swirls of variegated color.
Osaka, Feb 4, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - Panasonic Corporation has developed unique "micro color splitters", which separate the light that falls on image sensors by exploiting light's wavelike properties.
Louis de Broglie's proposal that matter had wavelike properties, a key idea of quantum mechanics, was suggested by similarities between the behaviors of matter and light.
Where previously he had intuitively elaborated upon more-or-less strict theoretical processes, here processes acted upon the broadly intuitive drawing of wavelike shapes in order to transform his graphical resources into notational results.
But the remarkable thing about this book is the way it convinces the reader of its thesis by sheer force of beauty: a wavelike basket hilt, the austere triumph of a blacksmith's art, is printed in a symphony of grays that would do justice to a Japanese print.
Among Victorian musical settings of the poem she singles out George Henschel's, which counterpointed an ascending vocal line with the accompanying piano's descending, wavelike arpeggios, so that the piano registered, without literalizing, the voice not heard.
It still has the oscillating wavelike characteristic but also has the ability to allow simultaneous time and frequency analysis with a flexible mathematical foundation.
These patients were more likely to experience wavelike flareups which over time subsided in frequency and intensity.
Broadband shock noise is believed to consist of acoustic waves generated by supersonically convicting, coherent, wavelike disturbances arising from the interaction of large-scale turbulent structures with the nearly periodic shock cell system of imperfectly expanded jets (Tam 1987; Tam, Tanna 1982).
The computations also accounted for the up-and-down bobbing motion of M67 and the sun through the galaxy's plane of stars -- wavelike orbits that all celestial objects in the Milky Way exhibit, to some degree, thanks to complex gravitational interactions with other objects.
