  • The spatial state of non-interacting photons 

    Agnew, Megan (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-05)
    High-dimensional quantum systems are becoming an increasingly important area of study. Due to their ability to encode more information than a two-dimensional system, high-dimensional systems are useful in many applications, ...
  • Estimation of the lightning performance of transmission lines with focus on mitigation of flashovers 

    Koehler, Fabian Matthias (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-08)
    The growth of transmission networks into remote areas due to renewable generation features new challenges with regard to the lightning protection of transmission systems. Up to now, standard transmission line designs kept ...
  • Stationary states of dissipative many-body quantum systems via matrix product operators 

    Brown, Oliver Thomson (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-06)
    In this thesis we consider stationary states of dissipative many-body quantum systems. We do so using matrix product operator representations of the system. One can find the stationary state by simulating the time evolution ...
  • Object characterisation using wideband sonar pulses 

    Dmitrieva, Mariia (Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-06)
    Characterisation of objects in an underwater environment is challenging. Success in the task can be beneficial in a variety of scenarios, which include oil and gas pipe maintenance, archaeology, and assistance to general ...
  • Novel insights into hyperthermia’s therapeutic effectiveness in treating malignant melanoma 

    Mantso, Theodora (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-05)
    Malignant melanoma is one of the most aggressive types of human cancers and one of the deadliest malignancies with steadily increasing incidence rates globally. Although early detection and increased surveillance have ...
