Flicker waveform has been found to have a slight but specific effect upon fusion threshold. A depression of threshold amplitude of about 30 percent occurs if a second harmonic of near-threshold amplitude is added to the fundamental. The magnitude of the depression depends critically on the relative phase of the two components of the waveform.
