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.

We report a method of characterization and modification of the optical transmission properties of a double tilted Bragg grating structure by using a micro droplet translated on an electrowetting-on-dielectric platform. The droplet makes contact with the fiber cladding in the zone between the two gratings in the fiber. The change in optical transmission spectrum with droplet position was experimentally measured, and results are presented and discussed.
