End-pumped solid-state lasers.
This dissertation consists of four sections, with the focus on near- and mid-infrared lasers using Yttrium Lithium Fluoride (YLF) crystals doped with various rare-earth ions as a gain medium. As introduction a general ...
Constant-temperature dynamics in the Wigner representation of quantum mechanics.
This dissertation deals with theory and algorithms for computer simulations of classical and quantum systems in the canonical ensemble. First, the approach of Nos e-Hoover and its generalization, known as the Nos e- Hoover ...
Experimental measurement of the fluctuations of a laser beam due to thermal turbulence.
In this work, we considered and developed a new method to detect and quantify the fluctuations of a laser beam due to thermal turbulence. The new method consisted of a single laser beam propagating in air and passing ...
Computational studies of percolation : determination of the cluster number scaling function for lattices in 2 dimensions.
The main aim of this work is to study percolation theory on regular two dimensional
Ultra low frequency (ULF) waves observed at mid to low latitudes during daytime using low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite and ground-based data.
The launch of German geoscience satellite CHAMP inspired the increased interest in the study of ultra low frequency waves. In this work data from low Earth orbiting (LEO) German CHAMP satellite and South African ground-based ...
Mapping of magnetospheric electric fields from Cluster into ionospheric convection from SuperDARN using the Tsyganenko field model.
The data from Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) radar and Cluster was used to investigate whether the processes observed by SuperDARN radar in the highlatitude ionosphere leads to the processes that take place ...
Quantum dynamics in the partial Wigner picture.
The Wigner formalism can be used to provide a representation of quantum dynamics in a classical-like phase space. However, there are many cases, such as when dealing with spin systems in a dissipative environment, in ...
Computer simulation of nonadiabatic dynamics by means of the quantum-classical Liouville equation.
Simulation of quantum dynamics for many-body systems is an open area of research. For interacting many-body quantum systems, the computer memory necessary to perform calculations has an astronomical value, so that ...
