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) are presented. Our results show that at temperatures between 92 and 152 °C illumination increases the rate of annealing compared to annealing in the dark. The rates of annealing in the dark and under illumination exhibit the same functional dependence on the defect density. This observation suggests that the mechanisms for ‘‘dark’’ and ‘‘light’’ annealing are identical.
