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 effects of lattice-matched (Al,In)N insertion layers on the optical and structural properties of GaN films grown epitaxially on freestanding GaN substrates are described. The intensities and energetic positions of the GaN excitonic transitions in the photoluminescence from material grown above (Al,In)N show that high material quality and low strain have been preserved. The free exciton energies of the overgrown GaN, measured by reflectivity and photoluminescence, are 3.477, 3.482, and 3.500 eV for A, B, and C excitons, respectively, corresponding to strain-free GaN. The spectra are compared with those of a similar heterostructure grown on sapphire and of GaN-on-sapphire templates.
