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

We report development of a monolithically-grown GaInNAs/GaAs vertical amplifier for 1.3 μm operation. When optically-pumped using a 980 nm fibre-coupled diode, demonstration of up to 17.7 dB of on-chip gain has been realised. Amplification with 12.8 dB peak gain, 12 GHz bandwidth and saturation output power of -4.8 dBm is also reported.
