Modulation in electronics and telecommunications is a technique for impressing information (voice, music, picture, or data) on a radio frequency carrier wavecarrier wave through varying one or more characteristics of the wave in accordance with the intelligence signal. These characteristics include the signals amplitude, frequency, phase, polarization, and quantum-level phenomena like spin.
