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

Direct diode-laser pumping of a mode-locked Ti:Al2O3 laser is reported. A single 1W GaN-based diode laser operating at 452nm is used as the pump laser. Pulse durations as short as 114fs and average output powers of up to 13mW are obtained.
