Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    A Brewster window integrated into a corrugated waveguide was designed, manufactured and studied for a W-band gyrotron traveling wave amplifier. A corrugated waveguide intended to guide a quasi-plane wave (HE11) through the window, was numerically optimized and verified by measurement using a Vector Network Analyzer. The Brewster window was measured to have a reflection lower than -22 dB for the TE11 mode over the frequency range of 85 - 101 GHz.
