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

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

    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

    Author : Jonas Tidström; Lars Thylén; Mauritz Andersson; Jesper Mørk; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; slow light; stored light; stopped light; light-matter coherence; electromagnetically induced transparency; rubidium atoms; Physics; Fysik; Photonics; 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

    Author : Nathan Light; USA IN Indiana University; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; Folklore; Song; Islam; Muqam; Modernity; Language; literature and linguistics; Social sciences; Turkic; Canonization; Middle Eastern literature; Uyghur; Performance; China; Asian literature; Turkic languages; Turkiska språk; Literature; Litteraturvetenskap; Religionshistoria; History of Religions;

    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.
