Coherence

Short Description
Coherence is a property of waves that measures the ability of the waves to interfere with each other.

Long Description
Coherent / Coherence
Coherence is a property of waves that measures the ability of the waves to interfere with each other. Two waves that are coherent can be combined to produce an unmoving distribution of constructive and destructive interference (a visible interference pattern). Waves that are incoherent, when combined, produce rapidly moving areas of constructive and destructive interference and therefore do not produce a visible interference pattern

Pseudonyms
