Oscillation was a repetitive movement between different states at regular intervals.

An oscillator was a type of electronic circuit that produced oscillations. (DS9: "Armageddon Game")

An oscillation overthruster was a device in Soong-type androids such as Data. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man")

Subspace oscillation was a periodic variance in subspace. A series of these was called subspace harmonic. (DS9: "If Wishes Were Horses")

In 2366, after William T. Riker and Deanna Troi escaped from a Ferengi brig aboard the Krayton, Riker attempted to alert the USS Enterprise-D but was denied access to Ferengi communications as all transmissions had to be authorized by DaiMon Tog. Riker then set up a simple oscillation to send out a signal, a message that the Enterprise would understand but the Ferengi would think was normal subspace static. (TNG: "Ménage à Troi")

After entering a subspace distortion in 2367, the Enterprise-D experienced a quantum level oscillation delay which doubled in intensity every 12.3 seconds. Bio-cellular disruption would have been imminent had they not exited the subspace distortion. (TNG: "The Nth Degree")
