Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Understanding the relationship between charge transport and morphology is critical for improving the efficiency of conjugatcd polymer-based devices. Time of flight measurements are used here to examine hole transport in films of poly(2-methoxy-5-(2'-ethylhexoxy)-1,4,-phenylene) (MEH-PPV). Films cast from three different solvents, toluene, p-xylene. and chlorobenzene, are investigated. It is shown that the MEH-PPV films can exhibit either nondispersive or dispersive transport. depending on the solvent used.
