Multiphase pulse

A multiphase pulse creates a gap in a force field

A multiphase pulse was an energy emission which could be used to disrupt force fields.

In 2370, while Starfleet officers Jean-Luc Picard and Beverly Crusher were attempting to escape into Kes territory on Kesprytt III, they were able to use a tricorder to produce a multiphase pulse with a frequency modulation in the upper-harmonic range to open up a gap in the force field separating the Kes territory from the Prytt territory.
