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

Even when operated with a spectral dispersive resonant cavity the CO laser is frequently found to have a multi-component line structure. This structure greatly reduces the utility of such lasers for spectroscopy, optical pumping and other applications. This paper explains why the CO laser operates with this complicated line structure and how genuine single line operation can be made possible. The successful operation of such a laser is reported.
