Laser spectroscopy of alkaline earth flouride crystals doped with trivalent samarium and europium ions
(University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 1996)
Alkaline earth fluoride crystals doped with Sm3+ and Eu3+ ions have been investigated by polarised laser selective excitation, Zeeman infrared and optical absorption. These studies identify four main centres for CaF2:Sm3+ ...
Optical and radar wind comparisons in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere
(University of Canterbury. Physics, 1996)
This project involved the comparison of horizontal winds in the upper mesosphere at 80-105 km which were obtained by two different ground-based techniques located in Canterbury. Optical Doppler winds were derived from night ...
