Open Access: World leading research into plasma physics...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Physics, including those researching plasma physics.

Plasma physics explores the '4th' state of matter known as 'plasma'. Profound new insights are being made by Strathclyde researchers in their attempts to better understand plasma, its behaviour and applications. Areas of focus include plasma wave propagation, non-linear wave interactions in the ionosphere, magnetospheric cyclotron instabilities, the parametric instabilities in plasmas, and much more.

Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.

Abstract

The coherence of broad-area laser diodes with quantum dot gain medium is improved by frequency-selective feedback. A linewidth of 5-10 GHz at power levels of 10-140 mW is achieved in the wavelength region around 1240 nm, where no other good semiconductor lasers are available. The tuning range is at least 20 nm.
