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 present micro-photoluminescence measurements on single site-controlled InGaN/GaN quantum dots using two-photon excitation Furthermore, measurements of photoluminescence excitation and time-resolved photoluminescence are also presented. We show that two-photon excitation results in total suppression of the emission from the underlying quantum well, to which the quantum dots are couple, and yet strong quantum dot emission. We attribute this effect to the enhancement of the two-photon absorption in the quantum dots as a result of the zero-dimensional confinement compared to that of the quantum wells.
