The distribution of shallow traps within the sol-gel synthesized ZnO nanoparticles was investigated using thermoluminescence (TL) experiments in the 10-300 K temperature range. TL measurements presented two overlapped peaks around 110 and 155 K. The experimental technique based on radiating the nanoparticles at different temperatures (T-exc.) between 60 and 125 K was carried out to understand the trap distribution characteristics of peaks. It was observed that peak maximum temperature shifted to higher values and activation energy (E-t) increased as irradiating temperature was increased. The E-t vs. T-exc. presented that ZnO nanoparticles have quasi-continuously distributed traps possessing activation energies increasing from 80 to 171 meV.

Low temperature thermoluminescence behaviour of Y2O3 nanoparticles
Delice, S.; IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2019-01-01)
Y2O3 nanoparticles were investigated using low temperature thermoluminescence (TL) experiments. TL glow curve recorded at constant heating rate of 0.4 K/s exhibits seven peaks around 19, 62, 91, 115, 162, 196 and 215 K. Activation energies and characteristics of traps responsible for observed curves were revealed under the light of results of initial rise analyses and T-max-T-stop experimental methods. Analyses of TL curves obtained at different stopping temperatures resulted in presence of one quasi-contin...

Low-temperature thermoluminescence (TL) properties of ZnO nanoparticles grown by sol-gel method were investigated in the 10-300 K temperature range. TL glow curve obtained at 0.2 K/s constant heating rate exhibited one broad peak around 83 K. The observed peak was analyzed using curve fitting method to determine the activation energies of trapping center(s) responsible for glow curve. Analyses resulted in the presence of three peaks at 55, 85 and 118 K temperatures with activation energies of 12, 30 and 45 ...
Defect characterization in neodymium doped thallium indium disulfide crystals by thermoluminescence measurements
Delice, S.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2016-10-15)
Characteristics of defect centers in neodymium doped TlInS2 single crystals have been investigated in virtue of thermoluminescence measurements carried out at low temperatures (10-300 K) with various heating rates between 0.4 and 1.2 K s(-1). One glow peak was detected with peak maximum temperature of 26 K at a rate of 0.4 K s(-1). The observed glow peak was analyzed using three points and heating rate methods. The analysis results revealed the presence of one trap level with activation energy of 14 meV. Th...
Characterization of defect states in Ga-rich gallium arsenide crystals by thermally stimulated current
YILDIRIM, TACETTİN; Hasanlı, Nızamı; TÜZEMEN, Sebahattin (2018-06-01)
The trap levels in Ga-rich GaAs crystals were studied in the temperature range of 10-300 K using thermally stimulated currents (TSC) technique. During the experiments we utilized a constant heating rate of 0.2 K/s. Experimental evidence is found for two electron trapping centers in the crystal with activation energies of 44 and 50 meV. The analysis of the experimental TSC curve suggests slow retrapping. The capture cross sections of the traps were determined as 8.8 x 10(-25) and 1.0 x 10(-25) cm(2) with con...

Bi12GeO20 single crystal grown by Czochralski method was investigated in terms of thermoluminescence (TL) properties. TL experiments were performed for various heating rates between 1 and 6 K/s in the temperature region of 300-675 K. One TL peak with peak maximum temperature of 557 K was observed in the TL spectrum as constant heating rate of 1 K/s was employed. Curve fitting, initial rise and variable heating rate methods were applied to calculate the activation energy of trap level corresponding to this T...
