    • Ultrashort optical pulse characterization 

      Bosman, Gurthwin Wendell (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2008-03)
      Various autocorrelation techniques are employed to characterize ultrashort laser pulses in both the temporal and spectral domain. These techniques are; interference autocorrelation (IAC), modified spectrum autointerfer ...

    • The Role of a direct knock-out mechanism in the inclusive (p, α) reaction 

      Van Zyl, Johannes Jacobus (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2008-03)
      Experimental double differential cross sections and analyzing powers for the inclusive 93 Nb(p,α) r and 93 Nb(p, 3He) r reactions have been measured at an incident energy of 160 MeV. The results of this experiment, for ...

    • Relativistic mean-field theory applied to the study of neutron star properties 

      Diener, Jacobus Petrus Willem (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
      Nuclear physics can be applied in various ways to the study of neutron stars. This thesis reports on one such application, where the relativistic mean-field approximation has been employed to calculate the equations of ...
