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 on the single-frequency operation of an optically pumped external cavity semiconductor laser. An output power of up to 400 mW is obtained in a single spatial and longitudinal mode and with a tuning range exceeding 10 nm. The laser has been stabilized electronically to a reference cavity with a relative linewidth of less than 5 kHz.
