  • Can a person prepare to become a Christian? A Kierkegaardian response 

    Torrance, Andrew B. (2017-06) - Journal article
    Is it possible to prepare oneself to become a Christian? For Kierkegaard, there is no straightforward answer to this question, especially since such a transition depends upon a divine activity that is outside the realm of ...
  • Controversies of conversions : the potential terrorist threat of European converts to Islam 

    Bartoszewicz, Monika Gabriela (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-25) - Thesis
    The conventional wisdom regarding European converts to Islam is based on the premise that the majority lack the necessary religious knowledge and being thus unable to discern between the various interpretations of Islam, ...
  • Indirect transitions of a signal interacting with a moving refractive index front 

    Munoz, Michel Castellanos; Petrov, Alexander Yu; O'Faolain, Liam; Li, Juntao; Krauss, Thomas F.; Eich, Manfred (SPIE, 2014) - Conference item
    The dynamic manipulation of light can be achieved by the interaction of a signal pulse propagating through or reflected from a refractive index front. Both the frequency and the wave vector of the signal are changed in ...
  • Loss engineered slow light waveguides 

    O'Faolain, Liam; Schulz, Sebastian Andreas; Beggs, Daryl Matthew; White, Tom P; Spasenovic, M.; Kuipers, L.; Morichetti, F.; Melloni, A.; Mazoyer, S.; Hugonin, J. P.; Lalanne, P.; Krauss, Thomas Fraser (2010-12-20) - Journal article
    Slow light devices such as photonic crystal waveguides (PhCW) and coupled resonator optical waveguides (CROW) have much promise for optical signal processing applications and a number of successful demonstrations underpinning ...
  • Optically Induced Indirect Photonic Transitions in a Slow Light Photonic Crystal Waveguide 

    Munoz, Michel Castellanos; Petrov, Alexander Yu.; O'Faolain, Liam; Li, Juntao; Krauss, Thomas F.; Eich, Manfred (2014-02-06) - Journal article
    We demonstrate indirect photonic transitions in a silicon slow light photonic crystal waveguide. The transitions are driven by an optically generated refractive index front that moves along the waveguide and interacts with ...
  • The Third World evangelical missiology of Orlando E. Costas 

    Tippner, Jeffrey E. (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-25) - Thesis
    This thesis examines the missiological writings of Orlando E. Costas (1943-1987), particularly The Church and Its Mission: A Shattering Critique from the Third World (1974); Theology of the Crossroads in Contemporary Latin ...
