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

The structure and performance of an all polarization maintaining optical fibre hydrophone element is described and a sensitivity of -158+/-1.5dB is achieved. A 32-element, spatially multiplexed system is constructed with a noise-equivalent sound pressure of similar to3.58 X 10(-4) Pa/rootHz at 1kHz and the major results of sea trials indicate that the system is useful for research and industrial applications.
