Periodic and Fibonacci Au nanoparticle arrays of varying interparticle separations were fabricated on light emitting Er:SiNx films using electron beam lithography. A 3.6 times enhancement of the photoluminescence (PL) intensity accompanied by a reduction in the Er3+ emission lifetime at 1.54 mu m has been observed in Fibonacci quasiperiodic arrays and explained with radiating plasmon theory. Our results are further supported by transmission measurements through the Fibonacci and periodic nanoparticle arrays with interparticle separation in the 25-500 nm range. This work demonstrates the potential of quasiperiodic nanoparticle arrays for the engineering of light emitting devices based on the silicon technology.


Measurement of the cosmic ray muon flux seasonal variation with the OPERA detector
Agafonova, N.; et. al. (IOP Publishing, 2019-10-01)
The OPERA experiment discovered muon neutrino into tau neutrino oscillations in appearance mode, detecting tau leptons by means of nuclear emulsion films. The apparatus was also endowed with electronic detectors with tracking capability, such as scintillator strips and resistive plate chambers. Because of its location in the underground Gran Sasso laboratory, under 3800 m.w.e., the OPERA detector has also been used as an observatory for TeV muons produced by cosmic rays in the atmosphere. In this paper the ...
Effective mass and peculiarity of optical properties of Cadmium Sulfide nanoparticles
Muradov, M. B.; Eyvazova, G. M.; Turan, Raşit; Maharramov, A. M. (2008-12-01)
X-ray diffraction data, electron microscope and optical properties of cadmium sulfide nanoparticles were analyzed. It is shown that the value of the reduced effective mass of charge carriers in nanoparticles differs from bulk crystals. Changes of effective mass and "red shift" in values of band gap are explained by the occurrence of additional electronic potential in nanoparticles.
Measurement of the Top Quark Pair Production Cross Section in Proton-Proton Collisions at root s=13 TeV
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2016-02-01)
The top quark pair production cross section is measured for the first time in proton-proton collisions at root s = 13 TeV by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC, using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 43 pb(-1). The measurement is performed by analyzing events with at least one electron and one muon of opposite charge, and at least two jets. The measured cross section is 746 +/- 58(stat) +/- 53(syst) +/- 36(lumi) pb, in agreement with the expectation from the standard model.
Properties of Al2O3: nc-Si nanostructures formed by implantation of silicon ions into sapphire and amorphous films of aluminum oxide
Tetelbaum, D. I.; Mikhaylov, A. N.; Belov, A. I.; Ershov, A. V.; Pitirimova, E. A.; Plankina, S. M.; Smirnov, V. N.; Kovalev, A. I.; Turan, Raşit; Yerci, Selçuk; Finstad, T. G.; FOSS, SEAN (2009-02-01)
Photoluminescence, infrared Fourier spectroscopy, Raman scattering, transmission electron microscopy, and electron diffraction were used to study the luminescent, optical, and structural properties of aluminum oxide layers (sapphire and films of Al2O3 deposited on silicon) implanted with Si+ to produce silicon nanocrystals. It is established that, in both cases, a high-temperature annealing of heavily implanted samples brings about the formation of silicon nanocrystals. However, the luminescent properties o...
Analysis of optical constants and temperature-dependent absorption edge of GaS0.75Se0.25 layered crystals
IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2017-06-01)
GaS0.75Se0.25 single crystals were optically characterized through transmission and reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 450-1000 nm. Derivative spectrophotometry analyses on temperature dependent transmittance spectra showed that band gap energies of the crystal increase from 239 eV (T=300 K) to 2.53 eV (T=10 K). Band gap at zero temperature, average phonon energy, electron phonon coupling parameter and rates of change of band gap energy with temperature were found from the temperature depend...
