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

Ultrafast terahertz pulses can be generated through a number of processes such its optical rectification in an electrooptic crystal, a current surge in a biased photoconductive antenna. or charge transfer in aligned molecules, It will be shown that all these rectification processes can be described by a single analytical formula in the frequency domain. A recipe is given for the quick calculation of terahertz waveforms generated through any rectification process and detected through electro-optic sampling. This theory is compared with experimentally measured terahertz waveforms.
