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.

We present GaInP single frequency semiconductor disk lasers designed for emission in the visible range. Two different structures optimized for emission at 675 and 689 nm have been designed. Stabilisation of the frequency relatively to a reference cavity allows for very low noise levels, down to 5 kHz over a 1 s time scale in both cases. We show that these sources are suitable for laser cooling of Strontium atoms, and that we can transfer the high coherence to UV wavelengths.
