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.

    This paper presents the design, simulation and technical considerations of terahertz output windows, based on the multilayer type, for THz gyro-TWAs. Such windows can achieve very low reflection levels over a frequency broadband when the thickness of the dielectric layers are properly matched. The optimized window, in this design, was numerically calculated to achieve a passband of over greater than 7% bandwidth with a reflection of less than -30 dB and transmission loss of better than -0.3 dB.
