Rheojector I consists of auxiliary injection cylinders that mount at an angle between the nozzle and main barrel to oscillate the polymer through the entire mold.
More curious than ever about every little nuance of neutrinos, researchers demand firmer evidence that the particles oscillate. The scientists also want answers to a host of questions: How many neutrino types are there after all?
Both techniques were developed in Europe and both have in common the use of multiple gates and injection pistons to oscillate the melt back and forth in the mold to achieve their desired orientation effects.
At lower liquid viscosities, large-diameter disks oscillate with a well-defined period.
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." "This situation defies our sense of reality," say Christopher Monroe, a physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colo., and his colleagues in the May 24 Science.

Perturb a galaxy, and it, too, should oscillate. Computer models in which hundreds of thousands of particles attract each other according to the law of gravity indicate that a small disturbance can make these particles move in a coordinated fashion somewhat like the motion of a vibrating bell.
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. Under these conditions, a junction's voltage oscillates at a frequency that depends on such factors as the device's area and composition.
