    We report the discovery of two new giant radio galaxies (GRGs) using the MeerKAT International GHz Tiered Extragalactic Exploration (MIGHTEE) survey. Both GRGs were found within a ∼}1\, deg2 region inside the COSMOS field. ...
  • Mind the gap: Science and engineering education at the secondary–tertiary interface 

    Case, Jenni; Marshall, Delia; Grayson, Diane (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2013)
    In the South African higher education sector, there is increasing concern about the poor retention and throughput rates of undergraduate students. There is also concern that the participation rates in higher education, ...
  • Mining the Herschel-Astrophysical Terahertz Large Area Survey: submillimetre-selected blazars in equatorial fields 

    Lopez-Caniego, M.; Gonzalez-Nuevo, J.; Massardi, M.; Jarvis, Matt (Oxford University Press, 2013)
    The Herschel-Astrophysical Terahertz Large Area Survey (H-ATLAS) provides an unprecedented opportunity to search for blazars at sub-mm wavelengths. We cross-matched the Faint Images of the Radio Sky at Twenty-cm (FIRST) ...
  • Mixed-halide perovskites solar cells through PbICl and PbCl2 precursor films by sequential chemical vapor deposition 

    Ngqoloda, S; Arendse, C.J; Guha, S (Elsevier, 2021)
    Mixed halide perovskites with chlorine (Cl) content have received significant interest due to better charge transport properties and longer diffusion length compared to pure iodine-based perovskites. The superior properties ...
  • Mobile Communication Tools for a South African Deaf patient in a pharmacy context
