  • Microfluidic capillary in a waveguide resonator for chemical and biochemical sensing 

    Lee, Elizabeth (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2016-11)
    This thesis presents a novel microwave sensor for the characterisation of fluids with the integration of a microfluidic capillary. Various designs and fabrication methods were investigated for the integrated microfluid ...
  • Negative frequency effects in nonlinear optics 

    Redondo Loures, Cristian (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2016-12)
    In this thesis we analyse the impact of the new terms that appear in the nonlinear polarisation of the equations relevant to nonlinear x(3) optical materials when the slowly varying envelope approximation (SVEA) is not ...
  • Single-photon detection techniques for underwater imaging 

    Maccarone, Aurora (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2016-12)
    This Thesis investigates the potential of a single-photon depth profiling system for imaging in highly scattering underwater environments. This scanning system measured depth using the time-of-flight and the time-correlated ...
  • Design and development of symmetric reflective compound parabolic concentrator (SRCPC) for power generation 

    Naman, Garry Zamani (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2016-12)
    This thesis presents a detailed design, simulation, optical performance, construction and experimental validation carried out on a novel non-imaging static symmetric reflective compound parabolic concentrator (SRCPC). By ...
  • Development of photonic technologies for astronomical instruments using ultrafast laser inscription 

    MacLachlan, David Guillaume (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2017-03)
    Recently there has been a desire to apply photonic concepts and technologies to astronomical applications, with the aim of replacing traditional bulk optic instruments. This astrophotonic approach is envisioned to produce ...
