    Traditional healers provide CSIR scientists with indigenous knowledge (IK) that stimulates research and can eventually lead to discovery and development of new herbal remedies. The rights of these providers of IK, to share ...
  • Dudley, Angela L; Nock, M; Konrad, T; Forbes, A (IOP Institute of Pyhsics, 2010-03)
    Since the pioneering work on the entanglement of the orbital angular momentum (OAM) states of light, much attention has been devoted to the subject, with particular attention into the quantum aspects of information processing ...
  • Dudley, Angela L; Nock, M; Konrad, T; Roux, F; Forbes, A (South African Institute of Physics, 2010-09)
    An interferometer, mimicking an amplitude damping channel for vortex modes, is presented. Experimentally the action of the channel is in good agreement with that predicted theoretically. Since we can characterize the action ...
  • Luo, H; Vaivars, G; Nonjola, S; Rohwer, Mark B; Mathe, Mahlanyane K (2010-03)
    Alkaline membrane fuel cell (AMFC) has been received increasing attention among the different types of fuel cells. Ammonium quaternized polymers such as poly (arylene ether sulfones) are being developed and studied as ...
  • Pillay, P; Maharaj, VJ; Clarkson, C; Chibale, K (2007-01)
    Malaria is the leading cause of death and disease worldwide. The evolution and spread of drug-resistant forms of the causative agent Plasmodium falciparum and the limited number of chemotherapeutic agents available to treat ...
