The mechanism of the phase transitions in quartz and in the related materials is investigated. First order and second order transitions are explained on the basis of various models using experimental data from literature. Inparticular, the Landau phenomenological theory is employed in terms of the order parameters and the temperature- pressure (T-P) phase diagram is constructed for those materials of interest. The sym- metry change of crystal structure is also analyzed by using group theory. The thermodynamic quantities of quartz are obtained by calculating the order parameters using the experimental data from the literature. The calculated results are then interpreted with the ones stated in previous experimental studies.

It is of great importance for a materials scientist both from fundamental and applicability aspects to have better understanding of solid-state phase transformations and its kinetics responsible for micro-/nano-structure development in alloys and corresponding physical and mechanical properties. Transformation kinetics can be analyzed by various experimental techniques such as thermal analysis, laborious electron microscopy combined with extensive image analysis or by measuring changes in electrical resisti...
Alpha - beta transition in quartz
Lider, Mustafa Cem; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Department of Physics (2011)
Alpha-Beta transition in quartz is studied using the Raman scattering. The Raman frequencies of some lattice modes are analyzed at various temperatures close to the alpha beta transition in quartz. For this analysis, the experimental data from the literature is used and the soft mode behavior of those Raman phonons is investigated . On the basis of the predictions of some models, the temperature dependencies for the Raman frequencies of the lattice modes which move towards zero (soft mode) and their bandwid...

The crystal structure, temperature-dependent electrical conductivity, Hall coefficient, current-voltage characteristics, absorption spectra and temperature- and illumination-dependent photoconductivity of Tl3InSe4 single crystals were investigated. Tl3InSe4 crystallises in a body-centred lattice with tetragonal symmetry and belongs to the space group [image omitted]. The crystals are extrinsic p-type semiconductors and exhibit a conductivity conversion from p- to n-type at a critical temperature, Tc, of 283...

The optoelectronic properties of Bridgman method-grown Ga(4)Se(3)S single crystals have been investigated by means of room temperature electrical resistivity, temperature-dependent photosensitivity and temperature-dependent optical absorption. The photosensitivity was observed to increase with decreasing temperature, the illumination dependence of which was found to exhibit monomolecular recombination in the bulk at 300 K. The absorption coefficient, which was calculated in the incident photon energy range ...
