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

A compact hybrid TEA-CO2 laser has been developed which when actively stabilised with the cw section either above or below threshold, using the optogalvanic effect in the cw section, achieves long term interpulse frequency stability of < ±0.8 MHz. Interpulse stability is 1 MHz during the period of peak power (0.2 MW) for below threshold cw section operation.
