    Efficient mode-locking in a Tm:KY(WO4)(2) laser is demonstrated by using InGaAsSb quantum-well SESAMs. Self-starting ultrashort pulse generation was realized in the 1979-2074 nm spectral region. Maximum average output power ...
  • Broadly tunable femtosecond Tm:Lu2O3 ceramic laser operating around 2070 nm 

    Lagatsky, Alexander A.; Antipov, Oleg L.; Sibbett, Wilson (2012-08-13) - Journal article
    Femtosecond mode locking of a Tm-doped Lu2O3 ceramic laser is reported. Transform-limited pulses as short as 180 fs are generated at 2076 nm with an average output power of 400 mW and a pulse repetition frequency of 121.2 ...
  • The broken dream of pervasive sentient ambient calm invisible ubiquitous computing 

    Aylett, Matthew P.; Quigley, Aaron John (ACM Press - Association for Computing Machinery, 2015-04-18) - Conference item
    We dreamt of technology becoming invisible, for our wants and needs to be primary and the tools we use for making them a reality to become like a genie, a snap of the fingers and ta daa, everything is realised. What went ...
  • The brothel-without-walls : twentieth century photography and the presentation of prostitution 

    Maddox, Amanda (University of St Andrews, 2007) - Thesis
    This dissertation examines the interconnected visualization of fantasy, obscenity, and eroticism in twentieth-century photographs of prostitution and the sex industry. Using definitions of eroticism coined by Roland ...
