phase shift

[′fāz ‚shift]
(electronics)
The phase angle between the input and output signals of a network or system.
(physics)
A change in the phase of a periodic quantity. Also known as phase change.
A change in the phase angle between two periodic quantities.
(quantum mechanics)
For a partial wave of a particle scattered by a spherically symmetric potential, the phase shift is the difference between the phase of the wave function far from the scatterer and the corresponding phase of a free particle.

An efficient Quantum Phase Shift Energy Conserved Data Security (QPSEC-DS) technique is proposed with the objective of improving the security during data packet transmission with minimum energy conservation in MANET.
In this work, the accepted differential phase shift is considered as 90[degrees] [+ or -] 10[degrees] however an analog procedure can be performed for other tolerances.
The circuit provides a theoretical phase shift range of 540[degrees] [13], which ensures a usable range of, at least 360[degrees].
However, the useful phase shift range is limited to 25[degrees]-48[degrees] with a phase deviation of [+ or -]3[degrees].
So, the expression for the phase shift is given by:
