Open Access research shaping international environmental governance...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content exploring environmental law and governance, in particular the work of the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance (SCELG) based within the School of Law.

SCELG aims to improve understanding of the trends, challenges and potential solutions across different interconnected areas of environmental law, including capacity-building for sustainable management of biodiversity, oceans, lands and freshwater, as well as for the fight against climate change. The intersection of international, regional, national and local levels of environmental governance, including the customary laws of indigenous peoples and local communities, and legal developments by private actors, is also a signifcant research specialism.

Abstract

We report the demonstration of low threshold organic lasers whose nanostructured resonators are fabricated by UV nanoimprint lithography. We compare the nanoimprinted resonators with their master stamp nanostructures, and demonstrate lasers based on the conjugated polymer poly(2,5-Bis(2',5'- Bis(2"-ethylhexlyoxy))-p-phenylenevinylene), with thresholds of ∼1 kW/cm2 and below, which brings them into the regime where they can be optically pumped by a pulsed light-emitting diode.
