  • Bright single photon source based on self-aligned quantum dot-cavity systems 

    Maier, Sebastian; Gold, Peter; Forchel, Alfred; Gregersen, Niels; Mork, Jesper; Höfling, Sven; Schneider, Christian; Kamp, Martin (2014-04-07) - Journal article
    We report on a quasi-planar quantum-dot-based single-photon source that shows an unprecedented high extraction efficiency of 42% without complex photonic resonator geometries or post-growth nanofabrication. This very high ...
  • Flexible membranes for nanoplasmonic applications 

    Reader-Harris, Peter (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-22) - Thesis
    Nanoplasmonics has provided a way to control light with extremely high precision, into nanoscale volumes. In many circumstances, the nanoplasmonic devices which can be realised are fabricated using processing techniques ...
  • Integration methods for enhanced trapping and spectroscopy in optofluidics 

    Ashok, Praveen Cheriyan (University of St Andrews, 2011-12) - Thesis
    “Lab on a Chip” technologies have revolutionized the field of bio-chemical analytics. The crucial role of optical techniques in this revolution resulted in the emergence of a field by itself, which is popularly termed as ...
  • Optical eigenmodes for illumination & imaging 

    Kosmeier, Sebastian (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
    This thesis exploits so called “Optical Eigenmodes” (OEi) in the focal plane of an optical system. The concept of OEi is introduced and the OEi operator approach is outlined, for which quadratic measures of the light field ...
  • Optically controlled microfluidics 

    Neale, Steven Leonard (University of St Andrews, 2007) - Thesis
    Three projects are described in this thesis that combine microfabrication techniques with optical micromanipulation. The aim of these projects is to use expertise in microlithography and optical tweezing to create new ...
  • Probing the modal characteristics of novel beam shapes 

    Mourka, Areti (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-25) - Thesis
    In this thesis, an investigation into the modal characteristics of novel beam shapes is presented. Sculpting the phase profile of a Gaussian beam can result in the generation of a beam with unique properties. Described in ...
  • Quantum correlations in and beyond quantum entanglement in bipartite continuous variable systems 

    Tatham, Richard (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
    This thesis explores the role of non-classical correlations in bipartite continuous variable quantum systems, and the approach taken is three-fold. We show that given two initially entangled atomic ensembles, it is possible ...
  • Vision, fiction and depiction : the forms and functions of visuality in the novels of Jane Austen, Ann Radcliffe, Maria Edgeworth and Fanny Burney 

    Volz, Jessica A. (University of St Andrews, 2014-06) - Thesis
    There are many factors that contributed to the proliferation of visual codes, metaphors and references to the gendered gaze in women’s fiction of the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries. This thesis argues that ...
