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 use of semiconductor saturable absorbers has emerged as an enabling technology in modern passively modelocked laser systems. Their application to high power picosecond lasers, most notably Nd-doped lasers, has produced systems with average power levels of a few tens of watts. In this paper, the development of these laser systems to the 100W level and above will be outlined.
