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

Spatially self-localized states have been found in a model of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers with frequency-selective optical feedback. The structures obtained differ from most known dissipative solitons in optics in that they are localized traveling waves. The results suggest a route to realization of a cavity soliton laser using standard semiconductor laser designs.
