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 compatibility of GaInNAs/GaAs active regions with AlGaAs Bragg mirror technology opens up a range of surface-normal device formats for the spectral region around 1.3 µm. The authors report recent progress on the development of diode-pumped vertical external-cavity surface emitting lasers (VECSELs) and vertical cavity semiconductor optical amplifiers (VCSOAs) based on this technology. Pertinent performance characteristics are reported for GaInNAs 1.3-µm VECSELs capillary-bonded to diamond heatspreader platelets.
