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

Results are presented of a study of Au/SiO2/a-Si:H MIS solar cells employing wet-chemical oxides. The tunnel oxide can improve or deteriorate the parameters of the solar cell, depending on the oxidation time and on the percentage of the H2O2/water solution during the oxidation. We use the difference in optical subgap absorption, determined by photothermal deflection spectroscopy and by the constant photocunent method, to follow the density of interface states Nss as a function of oxidation time. In all cases, Nss goes through a maximum as a function of time
