phase shift

n.
The displacement of one periodic waveform with respect to another of the same frequency, especially the difference between the input and output of a signal-processing device, such as an electronic amplifier or filter, caused by the processing of the signal. Phase shift is measured as the angle between two points on a circle representing the progress of the wave through its cycle.

For conventional X rays, "when you detect the intensity, the phase information is gone," says Werner Meyer-Ilse of the Lawrence Berkeley (Calif.) Laboratory, "unless you have an experimental setup which converts the phase shift into intensity shift so that it can be recorded."
Materials that show the highest phase shift, approaching 90[degrees], are said to have the highest capability to dissipate energy.
ACM Research announced that it has recently received significant orders for wafer-cleaning tools based on ACM's proprietary Space Alternated Phase Shift, or SAPS, technology.
In order to do this, we express the overall phase shift to be introduced into the nth element (see Figure 3) as the sum of two terms:
In the article titled "Enhanced Measurement of Paper Basis Weight Using Phase Shift in Terahertz Time-Domain Spectroscopy" [1], an acknowledgment should be added as follows:
They provide phase shift range from 0 to 180 degrees and 1-dB maximum insertion loss.
In order to improve the secured data communication an efficient Quantum Phase Shift Energy Conserved Data Security (QPSEC-DS) technique is introduced.

The resulting pressure pulsation is, among other factors, dependent on the phase shift between the crankshafts of the individual pumps.
We calculated the amplitude ratio and phase shift between the water level and the volumetric strain based on the cross-correlation method (e.g., Lai et al., 2011; Zhang et al., 2015a), with a moving time window of 30 days and a running step of 3 days (Fig.

Irvine, CA, November 15, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, introduces a new series of 8-bit digital phase shifters which are programmable over a full 360[degrees] range and can produce a discrete set of phase states of up to 255 total steps with 1.4[degrees] increments with a high level of accuracy and minimal phase shift error.
