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.

    Periodic surface lattice (PSL) structures of planar geometry have been designed, constructed and measured. The motivation is to study the evolution of electromagnetic fields stimulated by PSLs to improve mode control in overmoded structures in high power electron beam driven THz vacuum electronic sources. The results of studies of the planar structures are presented. Prior to the experimental studies numerical simulations have been carried out and results are compared with experimental measurements. It is demonstrated that volume and surface fields can couple so as to form a cavity eigenmode, which has the potential to be selectively and efficiently excited.
