Usage

In literature:

They then radiated a signal at this frequency, modulated at the frequency to which the local oscillator was set.

In news:

I spotted it in Crawford's engineering newsletter the Local Oscillator and share it with his permission.
The two-tone-terminator (T3) line of diode mixers offers excellent suppression of IMD while providing high performance levels with both sine-wave and square-wave local-oscillator signals through 12 GHz.

In science:

These localized oscillations are to be contrasted with homogeneous oscillations obtained in other models for different systems (e.g. ).

We study collective behavior of locally coupled limit-cycle oscillators with random intrinsic frequencies, spatially extended over d-dimensional hypercubic lattices.
Collective synchronization in spatially extended systems of coupled oscillators with random frequencies
Collective behavior of globally-coupled oscillators is also examined and compared with that of locally coupled oscillators.

This paper consists of five sections: Section II introduces the system of locally-coupled oscillators on ddimensional hypercubic lattices.
Collective synchronization in spatially extended systems of coupled oscillators with random frequencies
For finite coupling (K > 0), locally ordered (synchronized) regions emerge, inside of which oscillators evolve with a couplingmodified effective frequency.
