Physics theses in the group Complex Photonic Systems

It is a tradition in the sciences in the Netherlands to publish Ph. D. theses in the form of handy, durable booklets of about hundred pages (page size usually 16 cm x 24 cm). A few hundred copies are printed. Both the graduating institution and the graduate keep a number of copies for free distribution to colleague-scientists that request such a copy. Quite a number of the theses are available as pdf files on our site.

If you are interested in a (paper) copy of one the theses listed below send an email to either the author or to the . Many of the theses listed below were prepared when our group was located at the University of Amsterdam.
