Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

We demonstrate the saturable Bragg reflector (SBR)-based stable self-starting continuous-wave mode locking of a Yb:KGd(WO4)2 laser. With a double quantum well SBR structure the shortest pulses observed had durations of 169 fs, average powers of 18mW and an oscillating wavelength centred on 1028 nm.
