    Triplet harvesting in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) from a blue fluorescent to a green phosphorescent emitter is important for the development of highly efficient white OLEDs for lighting applications. Here, we ...
  • England, the English and the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648) 

    Marks, Adam (University of St Andrews, 2012) - Thesis
    This thesis explores the role of England and the English during the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648), and provides the first major study of the between 50,000 and 60,000 Englishmen who fought for the ‘Protestant cause’ ...
  • English impressions of Venice up to the early seventeenth century: a documentary study 

    Hammerton, Rachel Joan (University of St Andrews, 1987) - Thesis
    The first Englishmen to write about the city-state of Venice were the pilgrims passing through on their way to the Holy Land. Their impressions are recorded in the travel diaries and collections of advice for prospective ...
  • An English lecturer, a palliative care practitioner, and an absent poet have a confabulation 

    Jones, Chris; Macpherson, Catriona (2014-07-09) - Journal article
    The possibilities for developing the poet Douglas Dunn’s archive (which includes the drafts and manuscripts for his collection Elegies, dealing with the terminal illness and death of the poet’s wife from cancer) for ...
  • The English provincial book trade : bookseller stock-lists, c.1520-1640 

    Winters, Jennifer (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
    The book world of sixteenth-century England was heavily focused on London. London’s publishers wholly dominated the production of books, and with Oxford and Cambridge the booksellers of the capital also played the largest ...
  • Enhanced 1.54 mu m emission in Y-Er disilicate thin films on silicon photonic crystal cavities 

    Lo Savio, R.; Miritello, M.; Shakoor, A.; Cardile, P.; Welna, K.; Andreani, L. C.; Gerace, D.; Krauss, T. F.; O'Faolain, L.; Priolo, F.; Galli, M. (2013-04-22) - Journal article
    We introduce an Y-Er disilicate thin film deposited on top of a silicon photonic crystal cavity as a gain medium for active silicon photonic devices. Using photoluminescence analysis, we demonstrate that Er luminescence ...
