Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

InxGa1–xN quantum dots have been fabricated by the selective growth of GaN micro-pyramid arrays topped with InGaN/GaN quantum wells. The spatially- and spectrally-resolved luminescence properties of these structures were measured using low-temperature micro-photoluminescence spectroscopy. The presence of InGaN quantum dots was confirmed directly by the observation of sharp peaks in the emission spectrum at the pyramid apices. These luminescence peaks exhibit linewidths down to 650 μeV (limited by the spectrometer resolution). We describe the broadening of the luminescence peak from a single dot as a function of temperature and excitation power.
