Bound in the subtle moonbeam's chain;
And love and hope do but obey
Some cold, capricious planet's ray,
Which lights and leads the tide it charms
To Death's dark caves and icy arms.

In science:

We found that a (corrected) scaling ratio of about 10 leads to a spiral instability adequately accounting for the disk spiral structure and non-circular motions: the spiral pitch angle and arm-interarm contrast are accurately reproduced.

Moreover, the performance of FAR depends on the chosen reference, with different reference arms leading to different randomization probabilities.
Bayesian phase I/II adaptively randomized oncology trials with combined drugs
Scaling the Milky Way dark matter halo up in mass to a level that yields ΘLSR = 264 km s-1 while simultaneously reproducing known leading arm debris requires the Sgr core to have a high (∼ 400 km s-1 ) space velocity, resulting in RVs in the tidal streams that are discrepant by ∼ 75 km s-1 from measured values.

Finally, there exists the possibility of unbalanced spectral throughput in each interferometer arm which can lead to spectral phase errors. We can check this by moving the detector to port 2.
A Demonstration of Spectral and Spatial Interferometry at THz Frequencies
However, finite gain in the PSL-MC loop can potentially lead to PSL frequency noise coupling into the arm stabilization loop.
Multi-color Cavity Metrology
Furthermore, note that the orbits spread out as they trace the arm moving from the L2 to the L1 between t = 0.65 and 1.1 Gyrs, leading to a gradual widening of the spiral arm.
Manifold-driven spirals in N-body barred galaxy simulations
However, since two of the four processes leading to a coincidence detection (each photon can choose either the short or the long arm of the interferometers) are indistinguishable, fringes can be observed in the rate of coincidence detections between two detectors belonging to different interferometers.
Long-distance Bell-type tests using energy-time entangled photons
However, different pulse broadening in the intereferometer arms, increasing with increasing arm-length difference, leads to a smaller visibility as well.

If a SMS is differentially rotating, cooling and contraction will instead lead to the unstable formation of bars or spiral arms prior to collapse, and the production of quasi-periodic waves (New & Shapiro 2001a,b).

The downflow does lead to vertical compression ahead of the next arm, but not to a doubling of the vertical velocity pattern.

Reference to Figure 4 shows that, at low z, minimum height occurs at the interarm bounce, where material is moving outward, while at high z, minimum height occurs downstream of the leading edge of the arm, where material has already begun to move in.
3D MHD Modeling of the Gaseous Structure of the Galaxy: Description of the Simulations
In practice the central null of the transmission map will be degraded by amplitude and optical path differences between the interferometer arms that will lead to a level of noise that sets a limit for the achievable null depth given (Serabyn, 2000).

Moreover, the young stars with the systematical non-circular motions directed towards the Galactic center (the Perseus, Cygnus, and Carina regions) which could belong to the same, perhaps patchy, spiral arm fall nicely on a large-scale structure which appears to be the leading spiral arm (Melnik 2006).
Kinematics of the outer pseudorings and the spiral structure of the Galaxy
The inclination of the local spiral arm, coincident with Gould’s Belt, and warping of the disk (Fig. 5), can lead to potential bias in determining the Sun’s distance from the Galactic plane.
