• Structure functions of the nucleon in a soliton model 

      Takyi, Ishmael (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2019-04)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT : We study nucleon structure functions (both polarized and unpolarized functions) within the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (NJL) model, in which the nucleons emerge as solitons. In particular we investigate the ...
    • Membrane coupled to the cytoskeleton: Fluctuations and stability 

      Gumede, Sthembiso Reuben (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2019-04)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT : In erythrocytes the plasma membrane is coupled to the underlying two dimensional hexagonal network of spectrin filaments through protein node complexes. There are also other protein complexes that link ...
    • Development of Near-IR and Beam Shaping of Mid-IR Lasers 

      Maweza, Elijah Loyiso (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2019-04)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT : This study seeks to produce short-pulsed laser output with high peak and average powers to meet the demand for industrial ranging applications. Q-switched lasers are suitable for this due to their ability ...
