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

Structural and optical properties of InAlAs/GaAlAs quantum dots grown by molecular beam epitaxy are studied using transmission electron microscopy, temperature- and time resolvedphotoluminescence. The control of the recombination lifetime (50 ps – 1.25 ns), and of the dot density (5.10−8 – 2.1011 cm−3) strongly suggest that these material systems can find wide applications in opto-electronic devices as focusing non linear dispersive materials as well as fast saturable absorbers.
