Van Haver, S. (author)
In present-day society, we encounter optical systems on a daily basis. Most people have a DVD player capable of playing content stored on an optical disc, Big Brother is watching us nearly everywhere using surveillance cameras and we consider it to be normal to take photographs with our mobile phone. Also, in less visible areas, such as...

Nugrowati, A.M. (author)
In this thesis, we present applications in optics involving the diffraction theory of light for two advanced technologies. We have used a rigorous vectorial diffraction method to model: (i) the imaging of mask structures in extreme ultraviolet lithography, and (ii) ultrashort pulse propagation through small apertures. We have explained the...

Nulling interferometry is a promising technique to directly detect Earth-like exoplanets. Unfortunately, it is extremely challenging to build a nulling interferometer and to meet the requirements needed for Earth-like planet detection. In this, thesis, we analyze the role of amplitude, phase and polarization in nulling interferometry and we use...

Marinescu, O.E. (author)
This thesis discusses some of the challenges of optical design for Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) mirror systems and illustrates novel design techniques and their application to, preponderantly, EUV systems and, in addition, some Deep Ultraviolet (DUV) lithographic objectives. The main added value of this thesis is the fact that it shows how...

Van der Avoort, C. (author)
The research described in this thesis provides onsets for research in several areas of interest related to aperture synthesis and guidelines concerning the design of synthetic telescopes for imaging. As such, this research contributes to the improvement of instrumentation for observational astronomy, in particular for stellar interferometry....

Koek, W.D. (author)
To gain better insight into the behaviour of turbulent flow there is a demand for a practical measurement instrument to perform three-dimensional flow measurements. Holography is a three-dimensional imaging technique, and as such is ideally suited for this purpose. Because flow media (such as water and air) are generally transparent, optical...

Van der Valk, N.C.J. (author)
Terahertz (=1012 Hz) radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation that is at this moment used rarely for imaging purposes. However, there are indeed reasons to assume that imaging with terahertz radiation could be very useful. First, many materials, such as paper, plastics and clothing are transparent for terahertz radiation, while they...

Serebriakov, A.G. (author)
This thesis has been devoted to two main subjects: the compensation of birefringence induced by spatial dispersion (BISD) in Deep-UV lithographic objectives and the optimization of optical systems in general.

Krieg, M.L. (author)
For the past thirty years, microchips have doubled in complexity every two years. This increasing complexity required that the size of the structures written on silicon halve at the same rate. A fundamentally limiting factor to the size of microchip structures is the wavelength of the lithographic projection processes used in their manufacture....

document
Montilla, I. (author)
The main goal of this thesis is to develop a system to permit wide field operation of Michelson Interferometers. A wide field of view is very important in applications such as the observation of extended or multiple objects, the fringe acquisition and/ or tracking on a nearby unresolved object, and also to reduce the observation time. For ground...

Booij, S.M. (author)
The goal of this thesis research was to investigate the possibilities and limitations of the Fluid Jet Polishing (FJP) technique. FJP is a new optical fabrication technique that is capable of making shape corrections and reducing the surface roughness of glass and other materials. The principle of operation is that a mixture of water and...
