    Are sure you don't mean the "wave packet" theory of matter? A particle can be represented as a Gaussian "wave packet" that spreads with time, increasing the position uncertainty at future times. Narrowing the packet width (for position accuracy) increases the spread rate, in accordance with the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.

    A wave packet of light is no big deal; it would be the standard method of representing a pulse of light with physical optics.
