The effects of Co addition on the chemical and electronic structure of PbTiO3 were explored both by theory and through experiment. Cobalt was incorporated into PbTiO3 during the sol-gel process with the X-ray diffraction (XRD) data of the resulting compounds confirming a perovskite structure for the pure samples. The XRD lines broadened and showed emerging cubic structure features as the Co incorporation increased. The changes in the XRD pattern were interpreted as double perovskite structure formation. Pb-207 NMR measurements revealed a growing isotropic component in the presence of Co. Consistent with the experiments, density functional theory (DFT)-calculated chemical-shift values corroborate isotropic coordination of Pb, suggesting the formation of cubic Pb2CoTiO6 domains in the prepared samples. Hybrid functional first-principles calculations indicate formation of Pb2CoTiO6 with cubic structure and confirm that Co addition can decrease oxygen binding energy significantly. Experimental UV-vis spectroscopy results indicate that upon addition of Co, the band gap is shifted toward visible wavelengths as confirmed by energy band and absorption spectrum calculations. The oxygen binding energies were determined by temperature-programmed reduction (TPR) measurements. Upon addition of Co, TPR lines shifted to lower temperatures and new features appeared in the TPR patterns. This shift was interpreted as weakening of the oxygen-cobalt bond strength. The change in the electronic structure by the alterations of oxygen vacancy formation energy and bond lengths upon Co insertion is determined by DFT calculations.

Nuclear dissipative dynamics in langevin approach
Tanrıverdi, Vedat; Gökalp, Ahmet; Department of Physics (2004)
In this thesis Langevin approach is applied to analyze the nuclear dissipative dynamics in fission and fusion reactions. In these investigations, the nuclear elongation coordinate and the corresponding momentum are chosen as collective variables. By considering changes in these variables the decay rate of fission and the formation probability of fusion for heavy ion reactions are calculated. These calculations are performed using simulation techniques and the results thus obtained are compared with the corr...
Effect of ternary alloying elements addition on atomic ordering characteristics of Fe-Al intermetallics
Mehrabov, Amdulla; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat (Elsevier BV, 1999-05-28)
The energetic and structural characteristics of atomic ordering processes in Fe-0.5(Al1-nXn)(0.5) intermetallics have been qualitatively analyzed based on the statistico-thermodynamical theory of ordering by means of a quasi-chemical method combined with electronic theory in the pseudopotential approximation. The effects of ternary impurities on order-disorder phase transformation temperature and the characteristics of atomic short-range order in Fe-Al type intermetallics have been calculated. Impurity elem...
lambda-transition of NH4Cl and ND4Cl at high pressures
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Sen, S. (Wiley, 2007-07-01)
We predict in this study using the mean-field theory, the phase-line equation from the free energy expanded in terms of the order parameters of solid II and III phases of NH4Cl and ND4Cl close to the X-phase transitions at high pressures. Using the temperature and pressure dependence of the coefficients given in the phase-line equation, it is shown that the experimentally observed T-P phase diagram for the solid II-solid III transition, can be predicted from the mean field model studied here for both crysta...
Effect of Li addition on the properties of Bi-based superconductors
Ogun, SE; Ozkan, H; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2003-06-01)
The effect of Li addition on the formation and properties of Pb containing Bi-based superconductors has been studied. Three successive thermal sintering cycles have been applied to the oxides adjusted for the nominal composition, Bi1.6Pb0.4Sr2CaCu2O8+d. Eight different samples having Li2CO3 from 0.0 up to 3.0 weight% have been synthesized, X-ray diffraction patterns, resistivity-temperature behaviors and differential thermal analysis of the samples have been examined. Li2CO3 addition at 650degreesC decrease...
Indirect nuclear exchange coupling and electronic structure of the chain semiconductor TlSe: A Tl-203 and Tl-205 NMR study
Panich, AM; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2001-05-15)
We report an NMR study of the indirect nuclear exchange coupling, electronic structure, and wave-functions overlap in the single crystal of semiconductor TlSe which has a chain structure and comprises two kinds of Tl atoms, Tl1+ and Tl3+. Strong exchange coupling among the spins of Tl1+ and Tl3+ ions, which reside in neighboring chains, is observed. This interaction is significantly stronger than the exchange coupling of the equivalent atoms within the chains. Such an interchain coupling is realized due to ...
