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 high-power (AlGaIn)(AsSb) semiconductor disk laser emitting around 2 m. With a diamond heat spreader used for thermal management, a maximum output power of just over 5 W and slope efficiencies of over 25% were demonstrated. The output wavelength was tunable over an 80 nm range centered at 1.98 m. The beam propagation parameter M2 was measured to be in the range of 1.1 to 1.4 for output powers up to 3 W.
