The digitized mirror was clicking and flexing, moving in tiny increments of a few wavelengths of light.

If I can find the right sonic wavelength, I can strike my saser in the proper manner, and with the proper force, to bathe the Earth in sonic vibrations that will, in a matter of a day or so, for it takes time for sound to travel, wipe out humanity, while scarcely touching other life-forms with nucleic acids of differing intimate structure.

Then Kirtn remembered that Yhelle illusions were limited to visible wavelengths of energy.

The surface color and reflectivity can also be varied by arranging the bacteria into different configurations, so that light waves of one wavelength cancel each other, while the waves of another length reinforce each other, giving the object a certain color, making it light or dark.

Plattnerite itself, and so emerges with wavelengths appropriate to the greener part of the spectrum but still, enough of the original sodium light passes through the Plattnerite without scattering to allow the interference phenomenon to persist.

The stepwise series of concentric orbital shells was actually visible in some wavelengths.

He is also repeating the experiments carried out by stormer and Van der Pol, but at wavelengths different from those originally used.

Electrons and positrons, neutrinos and antineutrinos, photons with billion-light-year wavelengths all swirled through the cosmos.

The absorbed energy initiated a branching reaction, a sequential one photon architecture-a set of wavelength keys fitted across the darkness into a self-repairing chromophore lock originally built of bacterial protein.

More specifically, that melaninlike pigment that causes your skin to glow is photo-reactive under the aegis of a chromoprotein that absorbs at much longer wavelengths than those of the visual spectrum.

If the Handler was to he believed, the local computing nodes in each star system were only millimeters wide, and they communicated with the others, light years away, with pulses so weak, so tightly aimed, so unpredictable in wavelength, and so ingeniously encoded that a thousand interstellar civilizations had come and gone without noticing their presence.

This limit, called the Rayleigh criterion, is proportional to the wavelength of the light being focused divided by the lens aperture.
