Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

    Abstract

    The objective of this paper is to summarize the results obtained for the state of polarization in the emission of a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser with frequency-selective feedback added. We start our research with the single soliton, this situation presents two perpendicular main orientations, connected by a hysteresis loop. In addition, we also find the formation of a ring shaped intensity distribution, the vortex state, that shows two homogeneous states of polarization with very close values to those find in the soliton. For both cases above, the study shows the spatially resolved value of the orientation angle. It’s important to remark too the appearance of a non negligible amount of circular light that gives vectorial character to all the different emissions investigated.
