The measurement of electric quadrupole moments of gas molecules by induced birefringence.
Determining the electric quadrupole moments of gas molecules from measurements of birefringence induced in the gas by an applied electric field gradient is widely recognised as being the most direct experimental technique ...
The influence of rotating and locked magnetic islands on edge transport in Tokoloshe tokamak.
The turbulence and fluctuation induced transport in the edge plasma of the Tokoloshe tokamak was studied using a Langmuir probe array. In this thesis three separate experiments are presented, each of which examines a ...
A study of plasma source ion implantation.
The work described in this thesis is an analysis of the Plasma Source Ion Implantation (PSII) process. A metal target is placed within a plasma, and pulsed to a high negative potential (10 - 50 kV). The electrons in the ...
Numerical cavity-resonance modelling of impulse excited Pi 2 pulsations in the magnetosphere.
A magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) cavity-resonance model is developed to study the ultra low frequency (ULF) response in the magnetosphere to an external compressional impulse. It is assumed that the magnitude of the impulse is ...
