  • Has competition in the market for subscription sports broadcasting benefitted consumers? The case of the English Premier League

    Butler, Robert; Massey, Patrick (2018)
    This paper investigates the peculiar nature of competition in the broadcasting market for live English Premier League matches in the United Kingdom. Following the movement from free-to-air to subscription television in 1992, British Sky Broadcasting secured a monopoly on live broadcasting rights. The exclusive arrangements were later found to be in breach of European competition law and resulted in competition from the start of the 2007-2008 season. However, competition has not reduced prices...

    Innovation, quality management and learning: Short-term and longer-term effects

    Bourke, Jane; Roper, Stephen (2017)
    Quality-orientated management change and innovation are central strategies for firms. Implementing both quality improvement and innovation poses significant managerial, organisational and technical challenges, and may also involve significant lags before benefits are realised. Here, using data on a large group of Irish manufacturing plants and econometric analysis, we establish the short- and longer-term influence of plantsâ adoption of quality improvement methods (QIMs) on product innovati...

    Polarized photoluminescence excitation spectroscopy of a-plane InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells grown on r-plane sapphire

    Kundys, D.; Schulz, Stefan; Oehler, F.; Sutherland, D.; Badcock, Tom J.; Dawson, P.; Kappers, M. J.; Oliver, R. A.; Humphreys, C. J. (2014)
    We have performed a detailed study of the impact of basal plane stacking faults (BSFs) on the optical properties of both a-plane InGaN/GaN quantum wells (QWs) and GaN template samples grown on r-sapphire. In particular, we have used polarised photoluminescence excitation spectroscopy (P-PLE) to investigate the nature of the low temperature recombination as well as extracting information on the valence band (VB) polarisation anisotropy. Our low temperature P-PLE results revealed not only excit...

    Electrical characterization of top-gated molybdenum disulfide field-effect-transistors with high-k dielectrics

    Bolshakov, Pavel; Zhao, Peng; Azcatl, Angelica; Hurley, Paul K.; Wallace, Robert M.; Young, Chadwin D. (2017)
    High quality HfO2 and Al2O3 substrates are fabricated in order to study their impact on top-gate MoS2 transistors. Compared with top-gate MoS2 FETs on a SiO2 substrate, the field effect mobility decreased for devices on HfO2 substrates but substantially increased for devices on Al2O3 substrates, possibly due to substrate surface roughness. A forming gas anneal is found to enhance device performance due to a reduction in charge trap density of the high-k substrates. The major improvements in d...

    Radiative signatures of the jet launching region in astronomical objects

    O'Riordan, Michael (2018)
    Relativistic jets are observed in a wide range of accreting black hole systems, from stellar-mass black holes in X-ray binaries (XRBs), to supermassive black holes in active galactic nuclei (AGN). However, despite decades of observational and theoretical research, the mechanism by which relativistic jets are launched in nature remains one of the most important unanswered questions in high-energy astrophysics. In this thesis, we investigate various aspects of jet launching by calculating the r...
