Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

We present highly-efficient femtosecond blue light generation from a very simple, compact and potentially robust source. Complementary results from a periodically-poled waveguide suggest that this technique may allow the flexibility of quasi-phasematching in both the spectral and temporal domains to be exploited using compact and efficient femtosecond lasers.
