  • Control and measurement of ultrafast pulses for pump/probe-based metrology 

    Harper, Matthew R. (University of St Andrews, 2007) - Thesis
    In this thesis the control of ultrafast (10⁻¹³ s) optical pulses used for metrological applications has been investigated. Two different measurement set-ups have been considered, both based around the `pump-probe' technique, ...
  • Intracavity terahertz optical parametric oscillators 

    Walsh, David A. (University of St Andrews, 2011) - Thesis
    This thesis describes the design and implementation of several novel, nanosecond pulsed, intracavity optical parametric oscillators for the generation of terahertz radiation. The application of the intracavity approach ...
