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.

This poster reports several Continuous-Wave (CW), self-Raman Nd:YVO4 lasers using the primary and secondary Raman transitions of YVO4 (893cm-1 and 379cm-1 ). Laser outputs were obtained at λ=1109nm, 1158nm and 1231nm with maximum output power of 1W, 700mW and 540mW respectively. The respective absorbed pump power to Raman output power conversion efficiencies were measured at 8.4%, 5.4% and 5.4%. The resulting extended wavelength coverage will be used in conjunction with second harmonic generation and produce lines in the green-lime-yellow region for biophotonics applications where new wavelengths are required to match a growing range of chromophores.
