  • Thermo-optical effects in high-power end-pumped vanadate lasers 

    Strauss, Hencharl Johan (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The output power of end-pumped lasers is mainly limited by thermal effects in the bulk crystal gain material. The thermal effects either fracture the crystal or cause degradation in the laser beam quality ...

  • Intra–cavity laser beam shaping 

    Litvin, Igor A. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: There are many applications where a Gaussian laser beam is not ideal, for example, in areas such as medicine, data storage, science, manufacturing and so on, and yet in the vast majority of laser systems ...

  • Analyzing power and cross section distributions of the 12C (p,pα)8Be cluster knockout reaction at an incident energy of 100 MeV 

    Mabiala, Justin (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The (p, pα) reaction on 12C was investigated experimentally using polarized incident protons of 100 MeV. Coincident data, which were obtained at ten quasifree angle pairs for proton angles ranging from ...
