Development of a post-processing technique for a Quantum Key Distribution system.
Quantum Information, Processing and Communication (QIPC) is a field concerned with technological implementations established on quantum mechanical phenomena. It is established on the concept that the action of ...
Review of solar energy inclusion in Africa : a case study of Nigeria.
This work reviews solar energy inclusion in Africa using Nigeria as a case study. It reviewed studies made on viability, challenges and solutions associated with making solar energy a viable energy option in Nigeria. ...
Influence of concentration on properties of spray deposited nickel oxide films for solar cells.
Spray pyrolysis technique was used to deposit various concentration of nickel oxide films on glass substrate. The Effect of varying precursor concentration on elemental, morphological and structural properties was ...
Quantum analogues of classical optimization algorithms.
This thesis explores the quantum analogues of algorithms used in mathematical optimization. The thesis focuses primarily on the iterative gradient search algorithm (algorithm for finding the minimum or maximum of a ...
Determination of quantum entanglement concurrence using multilayer perceptron neural networks.
Artificial Neural Networks, inspired by biological neural networks, have seen widespread implementations across all research areas in the past few years. This partly due to recent developments in the field and mostly due ...
Quantum Key Distribution for the undergraduate curriculum.
Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is one of the technological applications of quantum mechanics. The technology allows two users to securely establish an unbreakable key. The key is used to encrypt and decrypt sensitive ...
Investigation of the relationship between solar radiation and cloud cover using a total sky imager.
Solar radiometric studies have been done in South Africa, but no research studies have been performed to understand how the cloud fraction (CF) affects the amount of solar radiation received by radiometers. This work focused ...
Clustering analysis for classification and forecasting of solar irradiance in Durban, South Africa.
Classification and forecasting of solar irradiance patterns has become increasingly important for operating and managing grid-connected solar power plants. A powerful approach for classification of irradiance patterns ...
