Literary linguistics: Open Access research in English language

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by English Studies at Strathclyde. Particular research specialisms include literary linguistics, the study of literary texts using techniques drawn from linguistics and cognitive science.

The team also demonstrates research expertise in Renaissance studies, researching Renaissance literature, the history of ideas and language and cultural history. English hosts the Centre for Literature, Culture & Place which explores literature and its relationships with geography, space, landscape, travel, architecture, and the environment.

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.
