  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
