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

at T approximately=0.1 K is studied as a function of pressure input power and propagation distance. Using a superconducting tunnel junction detector it is found that a single injected pulse can form two propagating pulses at low pressures but only one at high pressures. It is shown that three-phonon scattering can explain this behaviour. At low pressures, one group of phonons propagates ballistically while another group consists of strongly interacting phonons which travel at the ultrasonic velocity.
