Quartz undergoes very significant luminescence sensitivity changes after high temperature annealing (0-1200 degrees C), with particular enhancement occurring between the phase transition temperatures 573 and 870 degrees C. In order to understand why this occurs, high frequency electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), operating at 90 GHz, has been used to monitor the structure and population of defects in natural sedimentary quartz, following annealing and gamma-irradiation. The results are compared with the optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) data of the same samples. It is shown that: (i) the structure and population of the dominant [AlO4](0) recombination centres are largely unaffected by the annealing process; (ii) the oxygen vacancy E' centres are destroyed when annealed at temperatures between the phase transitions and; (iii) the numbers of both [TiO4/H+](0) and [TiO4/Li+](0) donors increase between 400 and 700 degrees C. Photo-EPR spectra are presented, providing evidence that both the Ti associated donors and Al accepters are directly involved in the OSL process. The heat-induced changes in the population of these EPR defects is mirrored in part by the change in the luminescence sensitivity of several OSL components. Evidence is also presented suggesting that E' may act as non-radiative centres competing in the OSL process.

Qasrawi, AF; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Wiley, 2005-10-01)
The optoelectronic and electrical properties of TIGaS2 single crystals have been investigated by means of room temperature transmittance and reflectance spectral analysis, Hall coefficient, dark electrical resistivity and photocurrent measurements in the temperature range of 200-350 K. The optical data have revealed an indirect and direct allowed transition band gaps of 2.45 and 2.51 eV, an oscillator and dispersion energy of 5.04 and 26.45 eV, respectively, a static dielectric constant of 6.25 and static r...
Resonant frequency shifts related to the elastic constants near the alpha-beta transition in quartz
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-05)
The resonant frequency shifts of vibrational modes are related to the elastic constants at various temperatures for the alpha-beta transition in quartz (T-c = 573.0 degrees C for alpha-quartz and 574.3 degrees C for beta-quartz). This correlation is constructed on the basis of the spectroscopic modifications of the Pippard relations near the alpha-beta transition in quartz by using the observed data from the literature.
Magnetization Studied as a Function of Temperature and Magnetic Field for Ferromagnetic Transition in DMNaFe
Kilit Dogan, E.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-08-01)
Magnetization has been calculated as a function of temperature in the ferromagnetic phase of (CH3)(2)NH2Na0.5Fe0.5(HCOO)(3)denoted by DMNaFe as one of the metal formate framework by using molecular field theory. CalculatedM(T) is compared with the magnetization measured as a function of temperature (H = 10 Oe) in field-cooling and zero-field-cooling regimes from the literature, and a power-law analysis of the experimental data was performed for DMNaFe. Magnetization measured as a function of the magnetic fi...
Dielectric and Thermal Effects on the Optical Properties of Natural Dyes: A Case Study on Solvated Cyanin
Malcıoğlu, Osman Barış; Gebauer, Ralph; Varsano, Daniele; Baroni, Stefano (2011-10-05)
The optical properties of the flavylium state of the cyanin dye are simulated numerically by combining Car-Parrinello molecular dynamics and linear-response time-dependent density functional theory calculations. The spectrum of the dye calculated in the gas phase is characterized by two peaks in the yellow and in the blue (green and violet), using a GGA-PBE (hybrid-B3LYP) DFT functional, which would bring about a greenish (bright orange) color incompatible with the dark purple hue observed in nature.

Reflectance spectra and refractive index of a Nd : YAG laser-oxidized Si surface
Aygun, G; Atanassova, E; Turan, Raşit; Babeva, T (Elsevier BV, 2005-02-15)
The reflectance spectra and refractive index of Nd:YAG laser-oxidized SiO2 layers with thicknesses from 15 to 75 nm have been investigated with respect to the laser beam energy density and substrate temperature. Thickness and refractive index of films have been determined from reflectance measurements at normal light incidence in the spectral range 300-800 nm. It was found that the oxide-growth conditions at higher substrate temperatures and laser powers greater than 3.36 J cm(-2) provides a better film qua...
