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

Monochromatic cathodoluminescence (CL) imaging of metal-organic vapour phase epitaxy (MOVPE) grown In(0.1)Ga(0.9)N single quantum wells (QW) has been performed in a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM). Spatially resolved fluctuations in the CL emission wavelength and intensity of the QW luminescence were recorded. The presence of regions with luminescent features asymmetrically distributed either side of the QW peak emission was inferred. These fluctuations may be attributed to, by for example, variations of ±0.01 in the In fraction of the In(0.1)Ga(0.9)N alloy, to changes of up to 0.6nm in the QW thickness. However these factors do not explain the gross fluctuations in QW emission intensity observed in TEM-CL on the scale of approximately one micron.
