#### End-pumped solid-state lasers.

(2010)

This dissertation consists of four sections, with the focus on near- and mid-infrared lasers using Yttrium Lithium Fluoride (YLF) crystals doped with various rare-earth ions as a gain medium. As introduction a general ...

#### Constant-temperature dynamics in the Wigner representation of quantum mechanics.

(2011)

This dissertation deals with theory and algorithms for computer simulations
of classical and quantum systems in the canonical ensemble. First,
the approach of Nos e-Hoover and its generalization, known as the Nos e-
Hoover ...

#### Computational studies of percolation : determination of the cluster number scaling function for lattices in 2 dimensions.

(2010-09-30)

The main aim of this work is to study percolation theory on regular two dimensional

#### Quantum dynamics in the partial Wigner picture.

(2013)

The Wigner formalism can be used to provide a representation of quantum dynamics in a classical-like
phase space. However, there are many cases, such as when dealing with spin systems in a
dissipative environment, in ...

#### On non-Hermitian quantum mechanics.

(2013)

The purpose of this dissertation is to review the salient features of non-Hermitian quantum
mechanics. An introduction to Hermitian quantum mechanics is included to make
this review as accessible as possible. Attempts ...

#### Magnetic properties of Mg₁-xZnxFe₂O₄ nanoferrites and tetracycline-ferrite nanocomposites.

(2013)

Abstract available in print copy.

#### The implementation of polarisation encoded quantum key distribution in fibre.

(2012)

Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) employs the laws of quantum mechanics for the purpose of cryptography. Two parties, commonly called Alice and Bob, are able to share a random key which is used to encrypt a message. Any ...

#### Optimizing quantum communication through hybrid technology.

(2012)

Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is a symmetric key sharing protocol. The theoretical process
exploits the principles of quantum physics to underpin a physical security against any form of
eavesdropping. QKD not only ensures ...

#### Exactly solvable models for qubits coupled to spin environments : decoherence and entanglement.

(2008)

During the last decade the field of quantum information has seen considerable progress both
theoretically and experimentally. The building block of this theory is the so-called qubit,
the quantum counterpart of the ...
