Measurement and computational modelling of intermolecular interactions in fluids.
The molecular theory of the second light-scattering virial coefficient Bp describing the effects of interacting pairs of molecules on the depolarization ratio p of Rayleigh-scattered light is reviewed, both for interacting ...
Theoretical and experimental investigations of the Kerr Effect and Cotton-Mouton Effect.
Mr T. J. Sono, an MSc student during the period January 2001 to January 2003, developed an apparatus to measure the pressure and temperature dependence of the electric-field induced birefringence (or electro-optic Kerr ...
Measurement and modelling of the directional scattering of light.
The quantum nature of light suggests that a photon can interact with matter in two primary ways. Firstly and perhaps more simply, the photon could be absorbed or secondly and more complex, it could be scattered into a ...
Measurement of the Kerr electro-optic effect by induced birefringence.
During the period January 2001 to January 2003, M Sc student Mr Tleyane Jonas Sono developed an apparatus to measure the pressure- and temperature-dependence of the electro-optic Kerr effect (electric-field-induced ...
Applications of light scattering and refraction by atmospheric gases.
LIDAR, an acronym for LIght Detection And Ranging, is a system used for studying the scattering of laser light incident on a parcel of air. This thesis investigates the atmosphere above the Durban region using two ...
