Spider Phase

Some articles on phase:

Spectral Phase Interferometry For Direct Electric-field Reconstruction - Theory
... the spectral shear, is the time delay, is the spectral intensity and is the spectral phase ... The unknown spectral phase of the pulse can be extracted using a simple, direct algebraic algorithm first described by Takeda ... the ac sidebands contain information about the spectral intensity and phase of the pulse (since the ac sidebands are Hermitian conjugates of each other, they contain the same information) ...

Famous quotes containing the words phase and/or spider:

    I had let preadolescence creep up on me without paying much attention—and I seriously underestimated this insidious phase of child development. You hear about it, but you’re not a true believer until it jumps out at you in the shape of your own, until recently quite companionable child.
    Susan Ferraro (20th century)

    But chief to heedless flies the window proves
    A constant death; where gloomily retired,
    The villain spider lives, cunning and fierce,
    Mixture abhorred! Amid a mangled heap
    Of carcases in eager watch he sits,
    O’erlooking all his waving snares around.
    James Thomson (1700–1748)
