Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We report the performance and characteristics of a GaInNAs-based tunable fibre vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser emitting at a wavelength of ~1200nm which may find application as a source in gasoline octane detection. The device, which is pumped through the fibre by 810nm diodes, can emit more than 0.3mW of output power and is tunable over 17nm around 1197nm.
