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

We report on novel InGaN/GaN quantum well/polyfluorene heterostructures where efficient Förster energy transfer from the well to the organic layer occurs. We show that Mott-Wannier excitons dominate the quantum well luminescence in the quantum wells in the 77 to at least 225 K range and are responsible for the efficient energy channeling to the polyfluorene films.
