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 electronic properties of (In, Ga)N/GaN quantum wells significantly depend on the exposure dose of low-energy electron-beam irradiation (LEEBI), which is used, e.g., for cathodoluminescence (CL). For unintentionally doped structures, we observe a simultaneous LEEBI-induced activation of donors and acceptors. Thus, the resistivity of the layers remains unchanged, while the quantum efficiency and optical transition energy increase significantly under LEEBI. The electric-field distribution in a p–n structure is changed towards the flat-band condition during LEEBI indicating an electron-beam-induced passivation of acceptors in the p-type layer.
