In literature:

In short, the current ought to UNDULATE in sympathy with the oscillations of the air.

The current was barely indicated by the gentle oscillation of a few water-lily leaves.
"The Ink-Stain, Complete" by Rene Bazin
We may account for trifling oscillations, not for the main current.

It was that; a storage place of batteries and current oscillators, I afterward learned.
"Astounding Stories, May, 1931" by Various
Suppose the current is oscillating one million times a second.

This arrangement, then, causes the oscillations, which will not operate a telephone, to produce other currents of a different nature which will.
"The Romance of War Inventions" by Thomas W. Corbin
And these alternating and oscillating currents need to be measured just as the direct currents do.

In science:

Phenomena as Bloch oscillation, nonlinear Landau-Zener tunneling, Josephson junction current, can be explained in terms of the band structure entailed by the GPE in the spirit of solid-state physics .
From the superfluid to the Mott regime and back: triggering a non-trivial dynamics in an array of coupled condensates
The quantum-classical transition can thus be detected by the broken phase of the oscillating current.
Broken Symmetry and Coherence of Molecular Vibrations in Tunnel Transitions
We have seen that the phase coherence of the oscillating current is affected by the tunnel coupling to thermal reservoirs due to the itinerant electrons.
Broken Symmetry and Coherence of Molecular Vibrations in Tunnel Transitions
The alternating current (ac) is zero below the threshold voltage and it oscillates after the threshold with an amplitude growing with the bias voltage.
Broken Symmetry and Coherence of Molecular Vibrations in Tunnel Transitions
The coherent oscillations of the Josephson current can be observed by virtue of their slow frequency ∆ ∼ V which is robustly controlled by the bias voltage.
Broken Symmetry and Coherence of Molecular Vibrations in Tunnel Transitions
The shuttle regime is characterized by shot noise reduction and by coherence of the oscillating current.
