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

An analysis of the free electron laser (FEL) operating in the non-linear high-gain regime and including the effects of coherent spontaneous emission (CSE) is presented. The results from this model are compared with previous work which neglected the effects of CSE. The results show that CSE can significantly reduce the startup time and enhance the generation of high intensity, short, superradiant radiation pulses.
