Adaptive phase estimation is the process of estimating the phase of an electromagnetic field via a continually changing measurement. The measurement is varied in an attempt to optimise it at each moment. In this paper we show that adaptive phase estimation is more accurate than nonadaptive phase estimation for continuous beams of light, even when small time delays in the feedback are present.
