Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

Passively mode-locked laser devices are presented incorporating chirped distributed Bragg reflectors. The Bragg grating sections consist of post-growth, sidewall relief, tapered gratings, offering continuous chirp and modulation of the coupling coefficient. Blue-chirped gratings are found to compensate for the pulse chirp accumulated in the laser gain and absorption sections. Pulses are measured with the largest 3 dB bandwidths, up to 2.3 nm, and smallest pulsewidths, 1.49 ps, achieved in passively mode-locked DBR lasers.
