Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

Single-crystalline germanium wafers exposed to hydrogen and/or deuterium plasma are studied by means of Raman scattering. The Raman frequencies are compared to results of ab initio calculations. For samples treated with pure hydrogen, Raman measurements performed at a temperature of 80 K reveal two sharp lines at 3826 and 3834 cm−1 with an intensity ratio of 3:1, which are assigned to ortho- and para-H2 trapped at the interstitial T site of the lattice.
