(1) Using Josephson junctions, scientists can create wave patterns in electrical currents that oscillate back and forth billions of times per second, mimicking the natural oscillations between quantum states in atoms.(2) The light made the electrons in each atom oscillate back and forth from one side of the atom to the other.(3) So, while living on this beautiful planet, one is conditioned to oscillate like a pendulum about the importance of love in life.(4) Americans oscillate back and forth between a strong desire to either transform ├ö├ç├┐alien├ö├ç├û things or withdraw from them; we cannot live comfortably side by side with them, as they are.(5) This can cause the players' strategies to oscillate back and forth indefinitely.(6) The tip may also oscillate up and down as it moves across the surface, mapping out the surface features.(7) A toothed crown-wheel on the spindle made the escapement oscillate , the escapement regulated the rate at which the spindle turned, and the rotation of the spindle measured the passage of time by moving a hand around a marked clock face.(8) He conducted experiments which led him to the conclusion that a simple pendulum of length one virgula would oscillate 3959.2 times in 30 minutes.(9) When an AC voltage applied to one of the electrodes matches the resonance frequency of the arm - specifically between 350 and 400MHz in this example - the arm will oscillate between the electrodes.(10) He'll oscillate back and forth between a discussion of eastern philosophies and a discussion of particle physics.(11) The circuit incorporates a nanopore mechanism with a molecular trap that forces the DNA molecule to oscillate back and forth between electrodes, measuring the electrical signal associated with each specific base.(12) Both of these circuits oscillate with the same frequency as growth but are temporally out-of-phase with respect to the start of the growth cycle.(13) We suggest that ash-laden vertical density currents probably attain and then oscillate about a characteristic size that maximizes the buoyancy flux and represents the optimum efficiency for vertical mass transport.(14) In the synonymy of slippery speech, to waffle, waver, oscillate , vacillate is ├ö├ç├┐to swing back and forth between opinions.├ö├ç├û(15) After a few minutes C.'s left hand started to oscillate back and forth.(16) ├ö├ç├┐To push beyond the gigahertz range of frequencies has been very difficult because the waves oscillate so fast that most electronics can't keep up,├ö├ç├û Nori said.
