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

We report a multi-wavelength passive filter working in the 1.3 μm range, fabricated by a post-growth technique based on the combined lateral-vertical steam oxidation of AlGaAs layers within a microcavity. Wafers are photolithographically patterned and etched through the top to create mesa structures which are oxidized from both edges, and control of resonant wavelength is achieved through mesa width, thickness and compositional control of intracavity layers to be oxidized, and oxidation conditions. Microreflectivity measurements of the processed devices show that in this wavelength range it is possible using this approach to control the resonant wavelength over a range of about 52 nm.
