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.

Periodically nano-patterned organic films incorporating color converting light-emitting polymers have been integrated onto InGaN/GaN light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Polarized and strongly modified hybrid LED emission is observed due to the photonic crystal effect of the nano-pattern. Emission characteristics are appropriate for various applications, and fast modulation capability with an optical ?3 dB bandwidth of 168MHz is demonstrated.
