• Ultrafast photochromism in metal-organic complexes 

      Von Stein, Xavier (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2016-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT : Dithizone (H2Dz), an analytical reagent typically used in colourimetric analysis, reacts with various transition metals to form metal dithizonate complexes. These complexes display strong absorption ...
    • Search for the scissors resonance in 182Ta 

      Brits, Christiaan Petrus (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2016-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT :Relatively small changes to the overall shape of the photon strength function such as the scissors or pygmy resonances can have a significant impact on reaction rates. Reaction rates are important for ...
    • Proton pencil beam kernels as extracted from Geant4 Monte Carlo simulations 

      Chisapi, Maluba Vernon J. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2016-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT : The contribution of primary protons, secondary protons, heavy recoil ions, and other secondary particles to the total energy deposited in water by a proton pencil beam (in the therapeutic energy regime) ...
    • Cave front tracking experiment 

      Green, Mark (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2016-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT : Seismic tomography, a procedure to trace seismic wave velocity variation, has been used for more than 100 years to “see through rock”. Initially the recording of seismic waves from natural sources ...
