Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

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.
