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 ...
The effect of the f-component of the pseudopotential on selected properties of 5d transition metal systems
Cohesive energies, bulk moduli, and equilibrium lattice constants have been calculated for the 5d transition atoms (Hf, Ta, W, Re, Os, Ir and Pt) in face–centred cubic crystal lattices. We have used the ab initio ...
Applications of Lie symmetry analysis to the quantum Brownian motion model.
Lie symmetry group methods provide a useful tool for the analysis of differential equations in a variety of areas in physics and applied mathematics. The nature of symmetry is that it provides information on properties ...
Transverse modes in porro prism resonators
This dissertation consists of two main sections. The first is a review of laser resonators using spherical mirrors, and incorporates a physical optics numerical model of a Fabry-Perot laser resonator without gain. The ...
The fluorescent tube-lamp integrating chamber.
The objective of this project is to design a facility that will characterize the electrical and optical properties of both tubular and the more recent compact fluorescent tubes. The first stage of this project, which is ...
Modelling diode-pumped solid-state lasers.
This thesis consists of three main parts. An introduction to diode-pumped solid-state lasers, thermal modelling of solid-state lasers and rate-equation modelling of solid-state lasers. The first part explains the basic ...
