Niobium (Nb)-doped lead zirconate titanate thin films (PNZT) were produced by solution deposition with nominal compositions, Pb(1-0.5x)(Zr0.53Ti0.47)(1-x)NbxO3 where x = 0.00-0.07. The effects of sintering temperature, sintering time, variation of thickness in the films and change of niobium content were investigated with regard to phase development, microstructure, and ferroelectric and dielectric characteristics. The best results were obtained in double-layered films (390 nm) sintered at 600 degrees C for 1 h. Optimum doping level was found in 1% Nb-doped films. For 1% Nb-doped [Pb-0.995(Zr0.53Ti0.47)(0.99)Nb0.01O3] films, remanent polarization (P-r) of 35.8 mu C/cm(2) and coercive field (E-c) of 75.7 kV/cm have been obtained. The maximum dielectric constant was achieved in 1% Nb-doped films which was 689. Ferroelectric and dielectric properties decreased at higher Nb doping levels because of the changes in the grain size and perovskite lattice parameters.

The structural and optical properties of electrodeposited Cd1-xZnxS nanostructured thin films were investigated in the present paper for compositions of x = 0, 0.03, 0.06 and 0.09. X-ray diffraction patterns of the deposited thin films consisted of diffraction peaks related to cubic crystal lattice. The atomic compositional ratios were determined by performing energy dispersive spectroscopy measurements. Scanning electron microscopy images indicated that deposited thin films have nanostructured forms. Raman...

We investigated the nonlinear and saturable absorption characteristics of Ga0.90In0.10Se and Ga0.85In0.15Se semiconductor crystals and their very thin amorphous films by open aperture (OA) Z-scan and pump-probe techniques. The linear absorption spectra indicated a blue shift in energy with increasing film thickness. This can be attributed to the quantum confinement effect. For both 4 ns and 65 ps pulse durations the two photon absorption coefficients of Ga0.90In0.10Se and Ga0.85In0.15Se crystals increased w...
Preparation of BaxSr1-xTiO3 thin films by chemical solution deposition and their electrical characterization
Adem, Umut; Özenbaş, Ahmet Macit; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2003)
In this study, barium strontium titanate (BST) thin films with different compositions (Ba0.9Sr0.1TiO3, Ba0.8Sr0.2TiO3, Ba0.7Sr0.3TiO3, Ba0.5Sr0.5TiO3) were produced by chemical solution deposition technique. BST solutions were prepared by dissolving barium acetate, strontium acetate and titanium isopropoxide in acetic acid and adding ethylene glycol as a chelating agent and stabilizer to this solution, at molar ratio of acetic acid/ethylene glycol, 3:1. The solution was then coated on Si and Pt//Ti/SiO2/Si ...

The structural and electronic properties of BNxAs1-x alloys have been investigated in the total range of nitrogen by the FP-LAPW method based on DFT within the EV-PW-GGA scheme. The equilibrium lattice constants, bulk moduli, first-order pressure derivatives of the bulk moduli, and cohesive energies have been obtained by total energy calculations of the alloys after both volume and geometry optimizations. The large bowing parameters found for the lattice constants and bulk moduli have demonstrated that the ...
Investigation of linear and nonlinear optical properties of PbWO4 single crystal
Delice, S.; Isik, M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2022-11-01)
© 2022 Elsevier B.V.In this manuscript, PbWO4 single crystals having great importance for device applications were studied in terms of linear and nonlinear optical properties. For this purpose, transmission and reflection experiments were performed in the wavelength range of 350–1000 nm. X-ray diffraction analysis presented crystalline structure as scheelite type tetragonal. Spectral dependencies of absorption coefficient, skin depth, refractive index, dielectric function were reported. Optical band gap of ...
