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

This paper describes the use of a helically corrugated waveguide as a dispersive medium for microwave pulse compression. The helically corrugated waveguide has a large variation of group velocity with frequency, but in a region where the group velocity remains large. Therefore this compressor does not suffer from reflections associated with cut-off scenarios at frequencies close to its operating regime and may be used in conjunction with high power wideband tunable microwave sources and amplifiers
