Where technology & law meet: Open Access research on data security & its regulation ...

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs exploring both the technical aspects of computer security, but also the regulation of existing or emerging technologies. A research specialism of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences (CIS) is computer security. Researchers explore issues surrounding web intrusion detection techniques, malware characteristics, textual steganography and trusted systems. Digital forensics and cyber crime are also a focus.

Meanwhile, the School of Law and its Centre for Internet Law & Policy undertake studies on Internet governance. An important component of this work is consideration of privacy and data protection questions and the increasing focus on cybercrime and 'cyberterrorism'.

Abstract

We have employed high resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy (HREELS) (in ultrahigh vacuum) to investigate the band gap of the novel semiconductor BC2N by measuring electronic excitations from the valence band to the conduction band. Angle-resolved HREELS allows the observation of transitions which are not vertical in k space, and the measurements indicate an indirect band structure, even though this material emits visible photoluminescence. The results also reconcile scanning tunneling microscopy and photoluminescence measurements for the system.
