Temperature-tuned band gap energy and oscillator parameters of TlInSeS layered single crystals

2008-09-10
The parameters of monoclinic unit cell of TlInSeS layered crystals were determined from X-ray powder diffraction study. The optical properties of TlInSeS have been investigated by means of transmission and reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 500-1100 nm. The optical indirect transitions with band gap energy of 2.05 eV and direct transitions with band gap energy of 2.21 eV were found by means of the analysis of the absorption data at room temperature. Transmission measurements carried out in the temperature range of 10-300 K revealed that the rate of change of the indirect band gap with temperature is gamma = -4.7 x 10(-4) eV/K. The dispersion of the refractive index is discussed in terms of the single oscillator model. The refractive index dispersion parameters: oscillator wavelength and strength were found to be 2.78 x 10(-7) m and 1.21 X 10(14) m(-2), respectively.

Specific features of the optical spectra in Tl2In2S3Se layered single crystals
Hasanlı, Nızamı; Güler, Işıkhan (2007-06-01)
The optical properties of Tl2In2S3Se layered single crystals have been studied by means of transmission and reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 450-1100 nm. The analysis of the absorption data revealed the presence of both optical indirect and direct transitions with energy band gaps of 2.16 and 2.42 eV, respectively. The observed coexistence of indirect and direct energy band gaps is related to the anisotropy of the TI-containing layered crystals. The dispersion of the refractive index is di...

Composition dependence of lattice parameters and band gap energies of thallium based layered mixed crystals
Hasanlı, Nızamı (2015-07-01)
Compositional dependence of lattice parameters and unit cell volumes of TlMeX2-type (Me = Ga or In and X = S or Se) layered mixed crystals with monoclinic structure has been studied by X-ray diffraction technique. It is revealed that the lattice parameters of TlGa1-xInxSe2, TlGa(S1-xSex)(2), TlGa1-xInxS2 and TlIn(Se1-xSx)(2) mixed crystals increase due to the substitution of gallium atoms by indium and sulfur atoms by selenium. Moreover, the absorption edges of these mixed crystals have been investigated th...
