Physical properties of CdSe thin films produced by thermal evaporation and e-beam techniques

Huş, Şaban Mustafa
CdSe thin films were deposited by thermal evaporation and e-beam evaporation techniques on to well cleaned glass substrates. Low dose of boron have been implanted on a group of samples. EDAX and X-ray patterns revealed that almost stoichiometric polycrystalline films have been deposited in (002) preferred orientation. An analysis of optical measurements revealed a sharp increase in absorption coefficient below 700 nm and existence of a direct allowed transition. The calculated band gap was around 1.7 eV. The room temperature conductivity values of the samples were found to be between 9.4 and 7.5x10-4 (Ω-cm)-1 and 1.6x10-6 and 5.7x10-7 (Ω-cm)-1for the thermally evaporated and e-beam evaporated samples respectively. After B implantation conductivity of these films increased 5 and 8 times respectively. Hall mobility measurements could be performed only on the thermally evaporated and B-implanted e-beam evaporated samples and found to be between 8.8 and 86.8 (cm2/V.s). The dominant conduction mechanism were determined to be thermionic emission above 250 K for all samples. Tunneling and v variable range hopping mechanisms have been observed between 150-240 K and 80- 140 K respectively. Photoconductivity illumination intensity plots indicated two recombination centers dominating at the low and high regions of studied temperature range of 80-400 K. Photoresponse measurements have corrected optical band gap measurements by giving peak value at 1.72 eV.


Investigation of structural and optical parameters of Cu-Ag-In-Se thin films deposited by thermal evaporation method
Gullu, H. H.; CANDAN, İDRİS; COŞKUN, EMRE; Parlak, Mehmet (2015-01-01)
Annealing effect on the structural and optical properties of the quaternary Cu-Ag-In-Se thin film deposited by the thermal evaporation has been investigated. The evaporation source was prepared by using vertical Bridgman-Stockbarger crystal growth system. Structural analysis indicated that annealing the films following to the deposition resulted in the changes from amorphous to polycrystalline phase with the preferred orientation along (1 1 2) direction. In order to determine the optical properties of the t...
Isochronal hydrogenation of textured magnesium/palladium thin films
Özgit, Çağla; Öztürk, Tayfur; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2009)
Pure and palladium‐covered 350 nm thick magnesium thin films were deposited on glass substrates via thermal evaporation. In the as‐deposited state, films were highly textured with Mg (001) parallel to the substrate. Hydrogen loading experiments were carried out in two different conditions; namely isothermal and isochronal. Hydrogenation behaviors of the thin films were followed by twopoint probe electrical resistance and optical transmittance measurements, as well as x‐ray diffraction studies. Isothermal hy...
Interactions of lithium-carbon nanosystems: molecular dynamics simulations and density functional theory calculations
Peköz, Rengin; Erkoç, Şakir; Department of Physics (2008)
Single walled carbon nanotubes have been attracting interest for their electronic, magnetic, chemical and mechanical properties. Moreover, since they are ideal nano-containers, the adsorption and absorption properties provide them to be used as Li/Li+ ion batteries. The capacity, rate capability and cycle life of the batteries are the important points which must be improved to have better results. In this thesis Li/Li+ ion doped carbon nano structures are investigated theoretically in order to contribute to...
Deposition of AgGaS2 thin films by double source thermal evaporation technique
KARAAĞAÇ, HAKAN; Parlak, Mehmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-09-01)
In this study, polycrystalline AgGaS2 thin films were deposited by the sequential evaporation of AgGaS2 and Ag sources with thermal evaporation technique. Thermal treatment in nitrogen atmosphere for 5 min up to 700 A degrees C was applied to the deposited thin films and that resulted in the mono phase AgGaS2 thin films without the participation of any other minor phase. Structural and compositional analyses showed the structure of the films completely changes with annealing process. The measurements of tra...
Structural characterization of Zn-In-Se thin films
Gullu, H. H.; Parlak, Mehmet (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2017-02-20)
In this study, structural properties of the Zn In Se (ZIS) thin films deposited by thermal evaporation method were investigated. The as-grown and annealed ZIS films were found in polycrystalline structure with the main orientation in (112) direction. The compositional analysis of the films showed that they were in Zn-rich behavior and there was a slight change in the elemental contribution to the structure with annealing process. Raman analysis was carried out to determine the crystalline structure and the ...
