Analysis of the Specific Heat in the Supercooled Solid Phase of Liquid Crystals

The specific heat Cp is analyzed using the experimental data at various temperatures in the solid phase of cholesteryl myristate according to a power-law formula for the rapidly and slowly cooled solid in the stability limit. We also analyze the temperature dependence of the Cp using the experimental data for the supercooled solid phase of p-azoxyanisole in the stability limit and the stability temperatures are determined for both cholesteryl myristate and p-azoxyanisole.


Investigation of carrier scattering mechanisms in TIInS2 single crystals by Hall effect measurements
Qasrawi, AF; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Wiley, 2004-05-01)
TlInS2 single crystals are studied through the conductivity and Hall effect measurements in the temperature regions of 100-400 and 170-400 K, respectively. An anomalous behavior of Hall voltage, which changes sign below 315 K, is interpreted through the existence of deep donor impurity levels that behave as acceptor levels when are empty. The hole and electron mobility are limited by the hole- and electron-phonon short range interactions scattering above and below 315 K, respectively. An energy level of 35 ...
Analysis of the Raman Frequency Shifts for the Lattice Modes and Vibrons Related to the Thermodynamic Quantities in the eta Phase of Solid Nitrogen
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2013-08-01)
The thermodynamic quantities of the isothermal compressibility, thermal expansion and the specific heat are calculated here as a function of pressure by using the observed Raman frequencies of the lattice modes and vibrons in the. phase of solid nitrogen. The Pippard relations and their spectroscopic modifications are constructed, and the slope dP/dT is deduced from the Raman frequency shifts in this phase of N-2. It is shown that the thermodynamic quantities can be predicted from the Raman frequency shifts...
Evaluation of the radiative recombination mechanism in Si nanocrystals embedded in silica matrix
Righini, Marcofabio; Gnoli, Andrea; Razzari, Luca; Serincan, Ugur; Turan, Raşit (American Scientific Publishers, 2008-02-01)
We report measurements of the temperature dependence of photoluminescence (PQ life-time and efficiency of Si nanocrystals (Si-Nc) embedded in silica matrix. We use a practical technique based on lock-in acquisition that allows us to simultaneously evaluate, at each emission-energy, intensity and decay-time of the detected signal. Samples are prepared by Silicon-ion implantation in a SiO2 layer followed by thermal annealing. The implantation dose of Si ions ranges between 2 x 10(16) cm(-2) and 2 x 10(17) cm(...
Analysis and calculation of the magnetization, magnetic susceptibility and the specific heat close to phase transitions in heterometallics
Dugan, E. Kilit; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Elsevier BV, 2019-10-01)
The temperature dependence of the magnetization for DMFeNi and DMFeCu is calculated by the molecular field theory and it is also analyzed as functions of temperature and the magnetic field by the power-law formulae close to the phase transitions in these compounds by using the observed data from the literature. From the analysis, values of the critical exponents beta (temperature-induced order parameter at H = 100 Oe) and delta (field-induced order parameter at T = 2 K) are deduced. Also, using the observed...
Determination of deep trapping center parameters in as-grown Tl2Ga2S3Se layered crystals
YILDIRIM, TACETTİN; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2009-09-01)
Thermally stimulated current measurements were carried out on as-grown Tl2Ga2S3Se layered single crystals. The investigations were performed in temperatures ranging from 10 to 320 K with heating rates of 0.6-1.2 K s(-1). The analysis of the data revealed the hole trap level located at 498 meV. The activation energies of the traps have been determined using various methods of analysis, and they agree with each other. The calculation for these traps yielded 2.1 x 10(-18) cm(2) for capture cross-section and 2....
