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

Resonance Raman excitation profiles for a substituted phthalocyanine dispersed as a polycrystalline powder in a silver disc were compared with those for a Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) multilayer of the same material on a silicon surface. There is a strong angular dependence of the efficiency of the scattering process. The LB profiles are strongly influenced by the electronic fields from the smooth semiconducting silicon surface, which gives rise to increased -* energy separation and comparatively efficient scattering from upper vibronic states.
