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

In this work a careful manual analysis of Rutherford backscattering spectrometry spectra is discussed to determine the InN content of Al1-xInxN thin films grown on GaN buffer layers. The main source of error arises from the fact that the low signal of Al is superimposed to the high signal of Ga from the GaN buffer layer. The uncertainties in the derived InN fraction are discussed. Furthermore, it is shown that channelling effects only have a minor influence on the compositional analysis of the studied films although they can significantly reduce the count rate and distort the shape of the spectra.
