Thermally assisted variable range hopping in Tl4S3Se crystal

Hasanlı, Nızamı
In this study, a modified model for the application of the thermionic and hopping current conduction mechanisms in the presence of continuous mixed conduction is investigated, discussed, experimented and simulated. It is observed that there exists a contribution from the hopping conductivity to the total conduction even at temperature ranges where the thermionic emission is mainly dominant. The contribution weight of a specific mechanism at particular temperature range is estimated. In addition, a modification to the Mott’s variable range hopping (VRH) transport parameters like density of localized state near the Fermi level, the average hopping range and the hopping energy in the presence of mixed conduction mechanism is also reported. This new approach corrects the evaluated electrical parameters that are necessary for the construction of electronic devices like absorption layers in solar cells. This proposed model is also used to explain the conduction mechanism and investigate the electrical conduction thermionic and Mott’s VRH parameters in Tl4S3Se crystals and in CuAlO2 thin films.

Photon assisted hopping conduction mechanism in Tl2SSe crystals
Qasrawi, A. F.; Ziqan, Abdelhalim M.; Jazzar, Suha Kh.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2015-02-01)
In this article, the powder X-ray diffraction data and the dark and the photo-excited electrical conduction parameters of Tl2SSe crystal are reported. The dark and photon excited electrical conduction in the tetragonal crystal are found to be dominated by thermionic emission assisted variable range hopping conduction (VRH). The dark Molt's VRH parameters representing by the degree of disorder (T), the density of localized states near the Fermi level (N(E-F)), the average hopping range (R) and average hoppin...

PEPE, YASEMİN; Isik, Mehmet; KARATAY, AHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı; ELMALI, AYHAN (2023-01-01)
© 2022In this study, the influence of excitation wavelength and input intensity on the nonlinear absorption (NA) mechanism and optical limiting behavior of the Bi12TiO20 (BTO) single crystal were reported. The energy band gap of the BTO single crystal was obtained to be 2.38 eV. Urbach energy revealed that the single crystal has a highly defective structure. Open aperture (OA) Z-scan experiments were conducted at 532 and 1064 nm excitation wavelengths at various input intensities. Obtained experimental data...

The single-pellet moment techniques previously developed for the evaluation of effective diffusion coefficient and effective thermal conductivity of a porous solid are combined and a procedure is proposed for the simultaneous evaluation of these constants from a single set of pulse response experiments. It is shown that both temperature and concentration response curves can be measured from a single pulse of oxygen injected into hydrogen carrier gas flowing past a catalyst pellet. It is shown that the zerot...
Elastic Response of Heat Generating Rod at a Variable Generating Rate
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim; Varlı, Ekin (2014-09-28)
The aim of this study is to develop a computational model to analyze thermally induced stress and deformation in a heat generating solid rod. The rod is initially at zero temperature, but for times greater than zero heat is generated internally at both space and time dependent rate. As the rod is heated up slowly an uncoupled solution is realized. The heat conduction equation with a variable generation rate is solved by a finite element collocation method. Two different generation rates are handled. The num...
Hydrothermal and microwave synthesis of boron phosphate, BPO(4)
Baykal, Altan; Toprak, M; Kniep, R (2001-01-01)
BPO4 was previously synthesized by the solid state reactions of (NH4)(2)HPO4 and B2O3 at 1000 degreesC and was characterized by X-ray powder diffraction and IR methods. We have now succeeded in preparing BPO4 from H3BO3 and P2O5 using hydrothermal synthesis by heating at 160 degreesC for 2 days and obtained a single phase product. We observed that a microwave-assisted synthesis takes only 3 to 5 minutes to transform a solid mixture of (NH4)(2)B4O7. 4H(2)O, and solid H3PO4 Or B2O3 + P2O5 into the crystalline...
