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 development of a controllable Continuous-Wave (CW) Raman lasers for medical and sensing applications is presented. An adaptive optics (AO)-based feedback control loop featuring an intracavity deformable mirror (DM) was integrated to a self-Raman Nd:YVO4 laser to compensate for the complex thermal lensing occurring in the gain medium. This resulted in power scaling of the Raman output beam by up to ~31%. Discrete wavelength selection between two Raman laser outputs is also presented.
