Extracellular potentials from action potentials of anatomically realistic neurons and neuronal populations.
Extracellular potentials due to firing of action potentials are computed around cortical neurons and populations of cortical neurons. These extracellular potentials are calculated as a sum of contributions from ionic ...
The fluorescent tube-lamp integrating chamber.
The objective of this project is to design a facility that will characterize the electrical and optical properties of both tubular and the more recent compact fluorescent tubes. The first stage of this project, which is ...
Synthesis, structural and magnetic properties of bulk and nanosized (Zn, Cd, Cu)0.5Ni0.5Fe2o4 and NiFe204 ferrites
We present a study of the synthesis, structural and magnetic properties of bulk and nanosized (Zn, Cd, Cu)0:5Ni0:5Fe2O4 and NiFe2O4 compounds. The e®ects of electronic con¯guration and atomic sizes of Zn, Cd, Cu and Ni ...
An investigation of ultra low frequency (ULF) pulsations using radar data and solar wind data.
An investigation of Ultra Low Frequency (ULF) pulsations was conducted using data
Vacuum vessels in tension.
Tensional Vacuum Vessels (TVV) are vessels constructed such that the walls are placed in tension rather than in compression as is the case with conventional vacuum vessels. TVVs have the advantage of being cost-effective, light ...
Figure rotation of dark halos in cold dark matter simulations.
We have simulated structure formation on cosmological-scales using N-body simulations run on the University of KwaZulu-Natal's cluster of computers and have used these simulations to investigate aspects of galaxy evolution. ...
Classical noise in quantum systems.
Quantum mechanics contains a fresh and mysterious view of reality. Besides the philosophical intrigue, it has also produced and continues to inspire tantalizing new technological innovations. In any technological system, ...
Experimental investigation of waves breaking over a bar in the surf zone.
Experiments on regular two dimensional waves breaking over an artificial sand bar were conducted in a glass walled flume to facilitate an investigation of the hydrodynamic processes that evolve in the surf zone. The ...

Measurement of the Kerr electro-optic effect by induced birefringence.
During the period January 2001 to January 2003, M Sc student Mr Tleyane Jonas Sono developed an apparatus to measure the pressure- and temperature-dependence of the electro-optic Kerr effect (electric-field-induced ...
