  • Steinmann, C. M. (Christine Margarete) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A tunable narrow-bandwidth laser source combined with a supersonic gas jet as sample is wellsuited for obtaining high-resolution spectra of cold isolated molecules and complexes. In the present study ...
  • Terblanche, Jonathan Steed (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2006-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Within arthropods, inter-individual and inter-population variation is generally poorly explored for physiological parameters. Such physiological variability is important, as it can provide insight into the ...
  • Loos, Ben   Engelbrecht, Anna-Mart   Lockshin, Richard A.   Klionsky, Daniel J.   Zakeri, Zahra (Landes Bioscience, 2013-09)
    Impaired autophagic machinery is implicated in a number of diseases such as heart disease, neurodegeneration and cancer. A common denominator in these pathologies is a dysregulation of autophagy that has been linked to a ...
  • Andriamaro, Miangaly Gaelle (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-12)
    In this thesis we study a standard example of refinable functions, that is, functions which can be reproduced by the integer shifts of their own dilations. Using the cardinal B-spline as an introductory example, we prove ...
  • Van der Bijl, Leendert (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
    This thesis investigates the various components required for the development of a patient position verification system to replace the existing system used by the proton facilities of iThemba LABS1. The existing system ...
  • Van Wyk, Barry-Michael Morne (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
    The medical radiation treatment facility at iThemba Labs requires a precise and robust patient positioning system. The current system makes use of an accurately calibrated multi-camera stereophotogrammetry (SPG) setup ...
