• Simulating atmospheric turbulence using a phase-only spatial light modulator 

      Burger, Liesl; Litvin,Igor A.; Forbes, Andrew (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2008)
      Demonstration of the effect of atmospheric turbulence on the propagation of laser beams is traditionally a difficult task. This is due to the complexities of long-distance measurements and the scarcity of suitable laser ...
    • Particle acceleration with lasers 

      Schwoerer, Heinrich (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2008)
      Within less than a decade, scientists have learned how to use high-intensity lasers to accelerate electrons within a few millimetres to 1 GeV and how to produce ultrashort pulsed proton beams with extremely small eminences. ...
