In science:

S and unshifted resonances ωD , ωS are interleaved for several hours.
Single barium ion spectroscopy: light shifts, hyperfine structure, and progress on an optical frequency standard and atomic parity violation
By interleaving the measurements, as shown in Figure 5.15, noise and temporal drift in the magnetic field, laser pointing, polarization, and intensity is shared by both shifted and unshifted resonances and thus do not contribute to the ratio.
Single barium ion spectroscopy: light shifts, hyperfine structure, and progress on an optical frequency standard and atomic parity violation
The effect would cancel in the light shift ratio if we probed the light-shifted and unshifted resonances with the same rf power.
Single barium ion spectroscopy: light shifts, hyperfine structure, and progress on an optical frequency standard and atomic parity violation
The mean of the unshifted curves is more significant of a given behavior than the mean of the shifted ones, and hence provides more efficient predictions.
Curve registration by nonparametric goodness-of-fit testing
The third and fourth tests are the unshifted gauge wave and shifted gauge wave tests.
Numerical stability of the Z4c formulation of general relativity
