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 broadband variable optical attenuator employing a side-polished single-mode optical fiber placed on an electrowetting-on-dielectric (EWOD) platform. Both theoretical and experimental analysis have been carried out on this system. Experimentally, a maximum attenuation of 25 dB was obtained in the wavelength range between 1520 nm and 1560 nm. This compares to a predicted maximum theoretical attenuation of 28 dB.
