Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Second harmonic generation has been employed in-situ to follow the growth of a thin anodic sulphide film on CdxHg1−xTe (CMT). The anisotropy patterns recorded for the bare CMT surface show that the sample is a vicinal {100} face. This is supported in particular by the observation of a non-vanishing pattern in the SIN–SOUT configuration. Also, the observation of a four-fold pattern in the case of the CdS film confirms that the film has retained the ccp structure of the underlying CMT substrate. The SH signal recorded during the growth of the CdS film follows an oscillatory pattern with film thickness. This has been attributed to the interference between the two dominating SH waves generated within the CdS film.
