Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

We demonstrate a high output power passively mode-locked distributed Bragg reflector laser with integrated tapered semiconductor optical amplifier, operating at 1.5 μm. These devices are based on an optimized low-optical-confinement AlGaInAs/InP epitaxial material with a three quantum wells active region and a passive far-field reduction layer. The device generates nearly transform-limited pulses with minimum pulse duration of 4.3 ps at 40-GHz repetition rate. An average output power of 200 mW with a corresponding output peak power of >;1.2 W is achieved.
