Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

A fully relativistic particle-in-cell code is used to simulate atomic clusterexplosions following the interaction with ultrashort high-intensity laser pulses, investigating the dynamics of a 1 μm hydrogen cluster explosion and providing information about the time-resolved position, momentum, and energy of electrons and ions, for different laser intensities. The results indicate that the mechanism responsible for cluster expansion is Coulombic explosion producing MeV ions and electrons.
