    • 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, ...
    • 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 ...
