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 uniformity of panchromatic cathodoluminescence (CL) from In0.09Ga0.91N/GaN quantum wells at 100 K was investigated using a combined transmission electron microscope-cathodoluminescence instrument. A technique for correcting CL images of electron-transparent wedge specimens for thickness contrast artefacts is presented. The foil thickness was estimated using the dynamical formulation of the relationship between the thickness and the (experimentally observed) transmitted electron intensity. For a given thickness the CL intensity was calculated using the Everhart-Hoff depth-dose function and also taking into account surface recombination losses. Experimental CL images were normalized by dividing by the calculated CL value at each point. The procedure was successful in calculating the underlying materials contrast in CL images of thin specimens of InGaN single quantum wells. Non-uniformities in the CL emission on the scale of similar to0.7 mum were observed.
