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

Silver nanoparticle ink has been inkjet printed onto inorganic GaN-based micro-structured light-emitting diodes to form narrow conductive tracks with a width down to ˜30 μm and a resistivity value approximating that of a conventional sputtered metal (Ti/Au) track. These silver tracks serve as `active' electrodes with comparable performance to the deposited metal tracks, demonstrating a new, simple and cost-effective route for the electrode fabrication of GaN-based LED devices.
