Open Access research that helps to deliver "better medicines"...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), a major research centre in Scotland and amongst the UK's top schools of pharmacy.

Research at SIPBS includes the "New medicines", "Better medicines" and "Better use of medicines" research groups. Together their research explores multidisciplinary approaches to improve understanding of fundamental bioscience and identify novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions, investigation of the development and manufacture of drug substances and products, and harnessing Scotland's rich health informatics datasets to inform stratified medicine approaches and investigate the impact of public health interventions.

Abstract

A high power (900 mJ, 35 fs) laser pulse is focused into a gas jet (length 2 mm) and a monoenergetic electron beam is emitted from the laser-induced plasma density wake behind the laser pulse. High quality monoenergetic electron beams with central energy up to 183 MeV are generated. The beam is fully characterised in terms of the charge, transverse emittance, energy spread and bunch length. In particular, the energy spectrum (with less than 1% measured energy spread) is obtained using a high resolution magnetic dipole imaging spectrometer.
