(University of St Andrews, 2017) - ThesisGalaxy structures in the local Universe are the result of an evolution spanning billions of years. The diversity in morphologies observed is due to mechanisms that could either be from external interactions or internal ...
(University of St Andrews, 2002) - ThesisThe advent of new quasi phase matched materials and high spectral/spatial quality pump sources has led to a renaissance in the development of continuous-wave optical parametric oscillators for the coherent generation of ...
