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 ...
Kinematics and dynamics of the elliptical galaxy NGC 5266.
In studies of triaxial elliptical galaxies, one of the least observationally studied phenomena is figure rotation. Figure rotation has important consequences for the orbital structure and could explain the survival of steep ...
Figure rotation of dark halos in cold dark matter simulations.
We have simulated structure formation on cosmological-scales using N-body simulations run on the University of KwaZulu-Natal's cluster of computers and have used these simulations to investigate aspects of galaxy evolution. ...
Extracellular potentials from action potentials of anatomically realistic neurons and neuronal populations.
Extracellular potentials due to firing of action potentials are computed around cortical neurons and populations of cortical neurons. These extracellular potentials are calculated as a sum of contributions from ionic ...
Experimental investigation of waves breaking over a bar in the surf zone.
Experiments on regular two dimensional waves breaking over an artificial sand bar were conducted in a glass walled flume to facilitate an investigation of the hydrodynamic processes that evolve in the surf zone. The ...
