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.

    Abstract

    Star-shaped organic semiconductors with boron dipyrromethene (BODIPY) cores are color-conversion materials for blue LED-based visible light communications. The difference between 0 and 1 bits is resolved in colour-converted data links at 100 Mb s−1. The BODIPY modulation bandwidth is eight times higher than that measured using conventional phosphor color converters.
