Usage

In literature:

Her screens were monstrosities, double polyphase lattices that looked about as spacetight as so many sieves.
"The Lani People" by J. F. Bone
The general idea of the polyphase alternator giving two or more E.M.F.
"Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th Edition, Volume 8, Slice 9" by Various
Both carry conductors in their slots, and these conductors in each case form a polyphase winding.
"The New Gresham Encyclopedia" by Various
Mr. Tesla's work ranges far beyond the vast departments of polyphase currents and high potential lighting.
"The inventions, researches and writings of Nikola Tesla" by Thomas Commerford Martin
Tesla's System of Polyphase Currents.

In science:

The IF signal bandwidth on the output of the polyphase low-pass filter is in range 1-11 MHz.
The multifrequency Siberian Radioheliograph
Since 2009, the survey has been recording data using the Jeff Mock spectrometers, which are polyphase filterbanks that provide better radio frequency interference rejection as well as increased bandwidth compared to the earlier WAPP survey data.
Four Highly Dispersed Millisecond Pulsars Discovered in the Arecibo PALFA Galactic Plane Survey
Waveforms that fall in the first category are for example polyphase sequences2, since they give rise to signals with low peak-to-average power ratio3 (PAPR). A low PAPR is desirable in the digital-to-analog conversion of signals, since signals with large PAPR would require expensive power amplifiers.
Accurate detection of moving targets via random sensor arrays and Kerdock codes
Polyphase sequences also have the advantage that they can be very convientiently implemented in hardware via simple look-up tables.
Accurate detection of moving targets via random sensor arrays and Kerdock codes
Quite a number of polyphase sequences, such as Alltop sequences or Kerdock codes, fall in this category.
