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).

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...

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.

Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2007-01-01)
Tl2InGaS4 layered crystals are studied through the dark electrical conductivity, space charge limited current and illumination- and temperature-dependent photoconductivity measurements in the temperature regions of 220-350 K, 300-400 K and 200-350 K, respectively. The space charge limited current measurements revealed the existence of a single discrete trapping level located at 0.44 eV. The dark electrical conductivity showed the existence of two energy levels of 0.32 eV and 0.60 eV being dominant above and...
Optical properties of GaS crystals: Combined study of temperature-dependent band gap energy and oscillator parameters

Optical parameters of gallium sulfide (GaS) layered single crystals have been found through temperature-dependent transmission and room temperature reflection experiments in the wavelength range of 400-1100 nm. Experimental data demonstrates the coexistence of both optical indirect and direct transitions and the shift of the absorption edges toward lower energies by increasing temperature in the range of 10-300 K. Band gap at zero temperature, average phonon energy and electron phonon coupling parameter for...
