In magnetic hologram recording, a medium (a garnet based film) is magnetised in one direction; then the medium is irradiated with laser light an information-bearing beam (signal beam) and a reference beam; the resulting interference pattern is recorded in the form of the difference in magnetisation directions as a result of thermomagnetic recording.
When these two virtual fields meet, they form a virtual interference pattern and a standing wave.
In the first stage, called recording, the interference pattern between an object wave, that carries the information of the object, and a reference wave, whose amplitude and phase is known, is stored.
With the funding assured the creative team, which included Oscar winning CG artist Tom Bryant leading the team at Interference Pattern to craft the animation and former Mogwai member John Cummings contributing the music, could complete their work.
Interferometers combine two or more sources of light to form an interference pattern that can reveal information about a studied phenomenon or object.
A hologram is a recording of an interference pattern reflected from an object.
Additionally, there was a reduction in the recruitment and interference pattern of motor units and chronic motor unit remodeling changes to these muscles.
As a result, the two beams are slightly out of step, creating a distinctive interference pattern which is measured using a system of mirrors.
If the double-slit experiment is repeated, using single photons at a time, they still show an interference pattern.
The whole pattern of laser light is called an interference pattern.
Moving past, toward, around each piece, the viewer generates a complex interference pattern created by shifting strands and stripes; the work flips from total abstraction to absolute concreteness--from shape and pattern to petrochemical reality.
The transverse wave is the source of the interference pattern in double slit experiments, which impacts the location of the associated longitudinal wave of the individual particle in generating the interference pattern.
