Note in a Reference List

Non-citation content inside a bibliographic reference list.


Sometimes end note material is placed within a bibliographic reference list, as one of the numbered reference items. The <note> element holds such material.

Best Practice: This element should be limited to conversion use only. When new reference lists are created, notes should not be intermingled with citations.

<p>While the samples appear homogeneous in terms of local variations in 
transition energy and PL intensity, the response to external electric fields 
is strongly inhomogeneous, which can most likely be attributed to local 
variations in the AlGaN back contact conductivity as well as inhomogeneities 
in the passivation process.</p>

theory combined with the non-equilibrium Greens functions. ...</p>
