Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

We present our recent work in the development of VECSEL-pumped Raman lasers: power scaling to near diffraction-limited multi-Watt output; investigation of the evolution of emission spectra; analysis of mode-matching, brightness and efficiency; and up-conversion to the visible. We will present a frequency-doubled CW diamond Raman laser pumped by an InGaAs-based VECSEL with an output power of 1.5W at 614nm, 5.4% diode-to-visible conversion efficiency, M2~1.2 and emission linewidth ~0.1nm. The visible emission is tunable from 604.5-619.5nm, with output power exceeding 1W from 613-618nm. We will also report a diamond Raman laser pumped by an AlGaInP-based VECSEL for tunable emission around 740nm.
