I still have never seen, in decades of perusal,
an adequate limitation on the duration
of a lightwave from a single, nonmonochromatic source,
like Sun e.g.

I generally eschew the use of the word, photon,
since it has been hooribly saddled with chuff
from Newton's completely bogus theory,
especially since the Copengenskoolers made Schroedinger's joke
into the absolutely necessary "cat
of many worlds."
