Temperature-dependent absorption edge and photoconductivity of Tl2In2S3Se layered single crystals

2013-02-15
Temperature variation of indirect band gap of Tl2In2S3Se layered single crystals were obtained by means of absorption and photoconductivity measurements. The temperature coefficient of -7.1 x 10(-4) eV/K from absorption measurements in the temperature range of 10-300 K in the wavelength range of 520-1100 nm and -5.0 x 10(-4) eV/K from PC measurements in the temperature range of 132-291 K in the wavelength range of 443-620 nm upon supplying voltage V = 80 V were obtained. From the analysis of dark conductivity measurements in the temperature range of 150-300 K, conductivity activation energy was obtained as 0.51 eV above 242 K. The degree of the disorder, the density of localized states near Fermi level, the average hopping distance and average hopping energy of Tl2In2S3Se crystals were found as, 1.9 x 10(5) K, Nf = 4 x 10(20) cm(-3)eV(-1), 29.1 angstrom and 24.2 meV in the temperature range of 171-237 K, respectively. Activation energy of hopping conductivity at T = 171 K was obtained as 41.3 meV and the concentration of trapping states was found as 1.6 x 10(19) cm(-3).

Raman scattering in TlInS2xSe2(1-x) layered mixed crystals (0.25 <= x <= 1): Compositional dependence of the mode frequencies and line widths
Güler, Işıkhan; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2011-09-15)
The Raman spectra of TlInS2xSe2(1-x) layered mixed crystals were studied for a wide composition range (0.25 <= x <= 1) in the frequency region 10-360 cm(-1) at room temperature. The shift of Raman-active phonon frequencies versus mixed crystals composition x were established. The effect of crystal disorder on the line width broadening of three high-frequency Raman-active modes is reported.
Temperature-tuned band gap energy and oscillator parameters of GaS0.5Se0.5 single crystals
IŞIK, MEHMET; Tugay, Evrin; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2016-01-01)
Temperature-dependent transmission and room temperature reflection measurements were carried out on GaS0.5Se0.5 single crystal in the wavelength range of 380-1000 nm to investigate its optical parameters. The analysis of the temperature-dependent absorption data showed that direct and indirect band gap energies increase from 2.36 to 2.50 eV and 2.27 to 2.40 eV, respectively, as temperature is decreased from 300 to 10 K. The rates of change of the direct and indirect band gap energies with temperature was fo...

Güler, Işıkhan; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2018-01-01)
Optical and electrical properties of TlInSSe layered single crystals have been studied by means of transmission, reflection and photoconductivity measurements. Transmission and reflection experiments have been carried out from 540 to 1000 nm at room temperature. Derivative analysis was applied to both transmission and reflection spectra and indirect band gap energy was found as 2.06 eV. Photoconductivity measurements have been performed in the temperature range from 245 to 300 K and in the voltage range fro...
Temperature dependence of Raman-active modes of TIGaS2 layered crystals: An anharmonicity study
Yuksek, N.s.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Ozkan, H.; Aydinli, A. (2004-08-01)
The temperature dependence (16 - 300 K) of unpolarized Raman spectra from TIGaS2 layered crystals was measured in the frequency range of 10 - 400 cm-1. The analysis of the experimental data showed that the temperature dependencies of the phonon frequencies and linewidths were well described by considering the contributions from thermal expansion and lattice anharmonicity. The anharmonic contribution (phonon-phonon coupling) was found to be due to three-phonon processes. The present work demonstrates that th...
Temperature-dependent optical properties of GaSe layered single crystals
IŞIK, MEHMET; TUĞAY, EVRİN; Gasanly, N. M. (2016-01-01)
Optical properties of GaSe single crystals have been investigated using temperature-dependent transmission and room temperature reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 380-1100nm. The analysis of the absorption data at room temperature showed the existence of indirect transitions in the crystal with energy band gap of 1.98eV. Temperature dependence of the transmission measurements revealed the shift of the absorption edge toward lower energy as temperature is increased from 10 to 280K. The rate o...
