Oriented polycrystalline ETS-10 thin films (average thickness similar to 1.50-1.75 mu m) were prepared on the ITO glass substrates using secondary growth of ETS-10 multilayers with a partial a(b)-out-of-plane preferred crystal orientation. After secondary growth, the films showed a columnar grain microstructure, and a significantly increased degree of a(b)-out-of-plane orientation. This orientation is desirable for advanced applications of ETS-10 films. The prepared films were strongly attached to the ITO glass substrates as evidenced by the absence of discernible differences in the substrate coverage with film after a 60-min ultrasonication in water.

Kuzyaka, Duygu; Galioglu, Sezin; Akata Kurç, Burcu (2016-10-01)
Oriented vanadosilicate AM-6 thin films with an average thickness of 1-2 mu m were prepared on the ITO coated glass substrates using secondary growth method with a partial a(b)-out-of-plane preferred crystal orientation for the first time. In secondary growth method, titanosilicate ETS-10 crystals were deposited on the substrate from a colloidal suspension to form seed layers. Then, the hydrothermal growth of the seed crystals was conducted to form AM-6 films. It was observed that the AM-6 films formed poss...
Preparation of lead free BZT-BCT thin films by chemical solution deposition and their characterization
Çeltikçi, Barış; Özenbaş, Ahmet Macit; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2012)
In the presented thesis, lead-free Ba(Ti0.8Zr0.2)O3-(Ba0.7Ca0.3)TiO3 (BZT-BCT) thin films were deposited on Pt/TiO2/SiO2/Si substrates using chemical solution deposition method and then the effect of process parameters were investigated to obtain optimum parameters of these lead-free thin films. The phase was selected near to the morphotropic phase boundary (MPH) to increase the number of polarization directions where rhombohedral and tetragonal phases exist together. In this study, the effect of sintering ...
Optical and structural characteristics of electrodeposited Cd 1-xZnxS nanostructured thin films
Erturk, K.; Isik, M.; Terlemezoglu, M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2021-04-01)
The structural and optical characteristics of Cd1-xZnxS (CdZnS) thin films grown by the electrodeposition method were investigated in the present paper. The crystalline structure of the grown CdZnS thin film was determined as cubic wurtzite due to observed diffraction peaks associated with (111) and (220) planes. Atomic compositional ratios of the constituent elements were obtained using energy dispersive spectroscopy and doping concentration of the Zn was found as 5% (x ~ 0.05). Scanning electron microscop...
Preparation and characterization of titania-silica-gold thin films over ito substrates for laccase immobilization
Eker, Zeynep; Karakaş, Gürkan; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2009)
The aim of this study was to immobilize the redox enzyme laccase over TiO2-SiO2-Au thin film coated ITO glass substrates in order to prepare electrochemically active surfaces for biosensor applications. Colloidal TiO2-SiO2-Au solution was synthesized by sol-gel route and thin film was deposited onto the substrates by dipcoating method. The cysteamine was utilized as a linker for immobilization of enzyme covalently through gold active sites. Preliminary studies were conducted by using invertase as model enzy...
Sol-Gel processing of organically modified ITO thin films and characterization of their optoelectronic and microstructural properties
Kesim, Mehmet Tümerkan; Durucan, Caner; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2012)
Indium tin oxide (ITO) thin films were formed on glass substrates by sol-gel method. Coating sols were prepared using indium chloride tetrahydrate (InCl3•4H2O) and tin-chloride pentahydrate (SnCl4•5H2O) stabilized in organic solvents (acetylacetone and ethanol). First attempt was to synthesize ITO thin films using standard/unmodified coating sols. The effect of calcination treatment in air (300 – 600 °C) and number of coating layer(s) (1, 4, 7 or 10) on optoelectronic properties (electrical conductivity and...
