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

Micro-ring lasers, with a minimum bend radius of 10 $mu{rm m}$, are presented that exhibit directional bistability and output powers up to 1.5 mW. In order to achieve devices with low threshold currents, mW output powers and directional bistability, the confilicting design constraints on the device are highlighted. Optimized adiabatic waveguide bends, bi-level evanescent couplers, and deeply etched ridge waveguide designs are presented in order to meet the stringent device design requirements. The optimized micro-ring laser devices exhibit directional extinction ratios of 25 dB and side-mode suppression ratios ${>}{rm 25}~{rm dB}$.
