Compared to metals, composite materials offer higher stiffness, more resilience to corrosion, have lighter weights, and their mechanical properties can be tailored by their layup configuration. Despite these features, composite materials are susceptible to a diversity of damages, including matrix cracks, delamination, and fibre breakage. If...

The development of solid state lighting (SSL) has been involving with improving the luminaire efficiency and integrating non-luminous functions, also known as More than Illumination. The objective of this thesis is to investigate different solutions for the concept of More than Illumination for SSL applications, to combine general lighting with...

The Rayleigh criterion explains the diffraction limit and provides guidance for improving the performance of an imaging system namely by decreasing the wavelength of the illumination and/or increasing the aperture (NA) of the objective lens. If the wavelength and NA are set, is it possible to improve the spatial resolution further? This question...

Optical inspection of periodic nanostructures is a major challenge in the semiconductor industry due to constantly decreasing critical dimensions. In this paper we combine coherent Fourier scatterometry (CFS) with a sectioning mask for subwavelength grating parameter determination. By selecting only the most sensitive regions of the scattered...

Optical imaging is the imaging of objects with visible light. It is a tool often used for diagnostic purposes, such as in biomedical and material sciences. Digital holography is an optical imaging technique that captures and images the amplitude as well as the phase (the complex amplitude) of the lightwave. An advantage is that the complex...

The rapid development of semiconductor industry in the past decades has reshaped the world tremendously and greatly changed people's lives. Two-dimensional (2D) down-sizing of semiconductor devices following the “Moore's law” for many years is now reaching its boundary conditions of further exponential growth and three-dimensional (3D)...

Malaria remains an important cause of high morbidity and mortality worldwide. According to World Health Organisation (WHO) malaria report for 2017, malaria accounted for the death of 435,000 people. It is the leading cause of death among pregnant women and little children. 11% of maternal and 20% of under–five deaths are attributed to malaria...

In this study, research on productivity and land cover monitoring is presented, with a focus on sugarcane, based on space-based remote sensing observations that were collected by Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and optical sensors. The study aims to provide new insights into techniques and methodologies that allow for cost-efficient monitoring of...

This thesis investigates the behaviour of the often used point-wise skill score, the MSESSini a.k.a. BSS, and develops new error metrics that, as opposed to point-wise metrics, take the spatial structure of morphological patterns into account. The...

Accurate measurement of suspended sediment concentration (SSC) in highly turbid environments has been a problem due to optical or acoustic signal saturation and attenuation. The saturation returns a limited measurement range, and the attenuation raises an ambiguity problem that a low optical or acoustic output could mean a low or a high SSC....

Valley pseudospin has emerged as a good quantum number to encode information, analogous to spin in spintronics. Two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (2D TMDCs) recently attracted enormous attention for their easy access to the valley pseudospin through valley-dependent optical transitions. Different ways have been reported to read...

To quantify the impact of cardiac motion on stent length measurements with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and to demonstrate in vivo OCT imaging of implanted stents, without motion artefacts. The study consists of: clinical data evaluation, simulations and in vivo tests. A comparison between OCT-measured and nominal stent lengths in 101...

Nonlinear frequency division multiplexing (NFDM) techniques encode information in the so-called nonlinear spectrum which is obtained from the nonlinear Fourier transform (NFT) of a signal. NFDM techniques so far have been applied to the nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE) that models signal propagation in a lossless fiber. Conventionally, the...

The removal dynamics of biodegradable dissolved organic carbon (BDOC) and natural organic matter (NOM) polarity fractions at a water treatment plant (WTP) in South Africa was studied using UV-Vis absorbance, fluorescence excitation-emission matrix, and two-dimensional synchronous fluorescence spectroscopy (SFS). This study gave insights into...

As the semiconductor industry rapidly approaches the 3nm lithography node, on product overlay (OPO) requirements have become tighter and as a result, residuals magnitude requirements have become even more challenging. Metrology performance enhancements are required to meet these demands. Color Per Layer (CPL) is a unique imaging overlay...

In this paper, degradation mechanisms of optical materials, used in the light emitting diode (LED)-based products, are reviewed. The LED lighting is one of the fastest technology shifts in human history. Lighting accounts for almost 20% of the global electrical energy use, inferring that replacement of traditional lighting sources with LEDs...

Trend break detection is a fundamental problem that materializes in many areas of applied science, where being able to identify correctly, and in a timely manner, trend breaks in a noisy signal plays a central role in the success of the application. The linearized Bregman iterations algorithm is one of the methodologies that can solve such a...

Ensuring optical transparency over a wide spectral range of a window with a view into the tailpipe of the combustion engine, while it is exposed to the harsh environment of sootcontaining exhaust gas, is an essential pre-requisite for introducing optical techniques for long-term monitoring of automotive emissions. Therefore, a regenerable...

Distributed temperature sensing (DTS) systems can be used to estimate the temperature along optic fibers of several kilometers at a sub-meter interval. DTS systems function by shooting laser pulses through a fiber and measuring its backscatter intensity at two distinct wavelengths in the Raman spectrum. The scattering-loss coefficients for...
