  1. 1. Light shapes spaces : experience of distribution of light and visual spatial boundaries

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : ArtMonitor

    Author : Ulrika Wänström Lindh; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Practise-based design research; distribution of light; lighting design; architecture; enclosure; perceived dimensions; atmosphere; light zones; light topography; visual spatial boundaries;

    Abstract : Light enables us to experience space. The distribution of light is vital for spatial experience but has not been the main focus of previous research on lighting. The lighting designer’s professional knowledge is to a great extent experience-based and tacit. READ MORE

  3. 3. Slow and stopped light by light-matter coherence control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jonas Tidström; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; slow light; stored light; stopped light; light-matter coherence; electromagnetically induced transparency; rubidium atoms; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; TECHNOLOGY Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics Photonics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik Fotonik;

    Abstract : In this thesis we study light-matter coherence phenomena related to the interaction of a coherent laser field and the so-called Λ-system, a three-level quantum system (e.g., an atom). We observe electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT), slow and stored light in hot rubidium vapor. READ MORE

  4. 4. Slippery paths : The performance and canonization of Turkic literature and Uyghur muqam song in Islam and modernity

    University dissertation from Ann Arbor : ProQuest, UMI Dissertations Publishing

    Abstract : In the past forty years the fluid Uyghur muqam song tradition has been transformed into a cultural canon used to represent the Uyghur ethnic group within China and on the world stage. Traditional muqam performers have provided the magma of songs that scholars and politicians have edited into an invented "great tradition" which supports a Uyghur claim to an important piece world cultural history.
