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

Terahertz time-domain spectral techniques are applied to the characterization of a He discharge plasma. Electro-optically sampling of the electric field of a quasi-unipolar terahertz pulse transmitted through the plasma has allowed both the real and imaginary parts of the plasma permittivity to be simultaneously measured over a large spectral range. The plasma density and the collisional frequency are determined within a 30 ps duration measurement window. An anomalously high collisional frequency has been measured.
