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

Laser induced beams of protons, neutrons and gamma rays using short pulse lasers is currently important principally because of the potential applications e.g. isotope production, transmutation studies, laser induced fission, heavy ion fusion reactions, neutron production and radiography, fast ignitor and spallation studies of neutrons. Although the Strathclyde group in collaboration with teams from Imperial College and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory have been at the forefront of many of these applications this presentation only deals with laser induced PET isotope production and laser transmutation studies. These two applications will be dealt with in separate sections.
