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

Nonlinear optical properties of phosphate and silicate glasses doped with PbS and PbSe quantum dots of different sizes were studied. Absorption saturation intensity in the range of the first and second excitonic transitions was estimated. Passive Q-switch operation of glasses doped with PbS- and PbSe-quantum dots as saturable absorbers for 1.067 mum Nd3+:KGd(WO4)(2), 1.54 mum Er:glass and 2.1 mum Ho3-:Cr3+:Tm3+: Y3Al5O12 diode- and flashlamp-pumped lasers was demonstrated.
