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.

We review our recent work analysing the polarisation effects in optically injected VCSELs operating at the important telecom wavelength of 1550 nm. We summarise our studies on the polarisation, time and temperature dependence of the nonlinear dynamics induced in these devices when subject to different types of polarised optical injection. In addition, we also discuss the potentials of VCSELs for the optical emulation of different neuronal behaviours offering prospects for novel uses of these devices in future neuromorphic systems and novel computing paradigms.
