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 present highly-efficient femtosecond blue light generation from a very simple, compact and potentially robust source. Complementary results from a periodically-poled waveguide suggest that this technique may allow the flexibility of quasi-phasematching in both the spectral and temporal domains to be exploited using compact and efficient femtosecond lasers.
