    • Response of NaI(T1) detectors in geophysical applications 

      Titus, Nortin P. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2005-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Airborne gamma-ray spectrometry is used for exploration and environmental monitoring over large areas. Such datasets of 7-ray are acquired using large 16l NaI(T1) detector crystals mounted in an aircraft. ...

    • Diode-end-pumped solid-state lasers 

      Esser, M.J. Daniel (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-03)
      This thesis consists of two parts: a discussion on diode-pumped solid-state lasers and a detailed description of the development of a diode-end-pumped Nd:YLF laser. A background motivation, which places this research ...

    • Diagnostics in VUV laser spectroscopy 

      Huang, Ping (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-03)
      A tunable vacuum ultra-violet (VUV) laser source was recently developed for VUV spectroscopy using state selective excitation and total fluorescence detection. The VUV laser source makes use of a four-wave mixing process ...

    • Determining non-linear optical properties using the Z-scan technique 

      Neethling, Pieter (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-03)
      The extremely high light intensities produced by lasers and the increasing use of lasers highlights the need for measures to prevent damage to materials due to exposure to high intensity laser light. In particular it ...
