(University of St Andrews, 2020-12-01) - ThesisThis thesis is broken into three main sections tracing the steps of the development of a new framework to search for and characterize planets from the WASP survey. While all methods were developed specifically for the WASP ...
(University of St Andrews, 2021-06-28) - ThesisIn this thesis I numerically study an optical pulse travelling in a dielectric medium as an analogue event horizon. A novel numerical method is developed to study the scattering properties of this optical system. Numerical ...
(University of St Andrews, 2020-07-27) - ThesisThe realisation of self-organisation of ultracold atoms in optical cavities, where the light field can couple strongly to the atomic field, paves the way for the observation of phase transitions in which the spatial order ...
