Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

Here we explore ways of converting laser radiation into coherent electromagnetic radiation using laser-driven plasma waves. Several schemes are presented, including colliding laser pulses in magnetized plasma and utilizing ultra-short electron bunches from laser wakefield accelerators to produce intense single-cycle pulses through coherent transition radiation and few-cycle coherent synchrotron radiation in undulators and plasma channels. These sources rely on high current electron bunches with femtosecond durations, which can result in radiation over a broad range of frequencies from 1 to 10^5 THz.
