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

The results of a study of the kinetics of the light-induced annealing of defects in hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) at the temperature of 125°C are presented. The rate of removal of the metastable defects and the final steady-state defect density both increase with light intensity. The functional dependence of the light-induced annealing term on the light intensity, or carrier generation rate G, is proportional to G0.66−0.84, and thus is proportional to the density of the photo-generated carriers.
