Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

We investigate the effect of a phase-modulated pump beam on collective backscattering also termed collective atomic recoil lasing CARL by a cold, collisionless atomic gas. We show using a numerical analysis that different regimes can be identified in which the atomic dynamics evolves in a qualitatively different manner during the light-atom interaction, depending on the magnitude of the pump modulation frequency. Our results also demonstrate that phase-modulating the pump field can substantially enhance the backscattered field
