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

A GaInNAs saturable Bragg reflector is used to mode-lock a Cr/sup 4+/ : forsterite solid-state laser. This low-loss saturable absorber mediates the generation of tunable femtosecond pulses having durations as short as 62 fs in the 1300-nm spectral region.
