This paper presents the development of a single layer microbolometer pixel fabricated using only ZnO material coated with atomic layer deposition. Due to the stress-free nature and high temperature coefficient of resistance of the ALD coated ZnO material, it can be used both as structural and active layers in microbolometer detectors. The design, simulations, and the fabrication optimization of 35. m single layer ZnO microbolometers are shown in this study. The designed pixel has a thermal conductance of 3.4x10(-7) W/K and a thermal time constant of 1.34 ms while it has a maximum displacement of 0.43 mu m under 1000g acceleration. This structure can be used to decrease the design complexities and fabrication costs and increase the yield of the detectors making them possible to be used in low-cost applications.

Enhanced Performance of Nanowire-Based All-TiO2 Solar Cells using Subnanometer-Thick Atomic Layer Deposited ZnO Embedded Layer
Ghobadi, Amir; Yavuz, Halil I.; Ulusoy, T. Gamze; Icli, K. Cagatay; Ozenbas, Macit; OKYAY, Ali Kemal (2015-03-01)
In this paper, the effect of angstrom-thick atomic layer deposited (ALD) ZnO embedded layer on photovoltaic (PV) performance of Nanowire-Based All-TiO2 solar cells has been systematically investigated. Our results indicate that by varying the thickness of ZnO layer the efficiency of the solar cell can be significantly changed. It is shown that the efficiency has its maximum for optimal thickness of 1 ALD cycle in which this ultrathin ZnO layer improves device performance through passivation of surface traps...
Molecular beam epitaxial growth of high quality InSb
Michel, E.; Singh, G.; Slivken, S.; Beşikci, Cengiz; Bove, P.; Ferguson, I.; Razeghı, M. (1994-12-26)
In this letter we report on the growth of high quality InSb by molecular beam epitaxy that has been optimized using reflection high energy electron diffraction. A 4.8 μm InSb layer grown on GaAs at a growth temperature of 395 °C and a III/V incorporation ratio of 1:1.2 had an x‐ray rocking curve of 158 arcsec and a Hall mobility of 92 300 cm2 V−1 at 77 K. This is the best material quality obtained for InSb nucleated directly onto GaAs reported to date.
Single Step Inverted Pyramid Texturing of n-type Silicon by Copper Assisted Chemical Etching
Altinsoy, Busra; Donercark, Ergi; Aliefendioglu, Atescan; Turan, Raşit (2021-01-01)
In this paper, we present the results of the study on the fabrication of inverted pyramids on n-type Si wafer by a single-step anisotropic copper-assisted chemical etching. The relationship between etchant composition, etching time and the surface morphology for n-type Si has been investigated. Different surface structures were obtained by adjusting molarity of H2O2, Cu(NO3)(2), HF in the etching solution. Cu(NO3)(2) amount promoted, while increasing H2O2 amount over optimum value reduced the etch rate. By ...
An Automated shrinkage compensation method for the holes fabricated via FFF process
Vayghannezhad, Sardar; Yaman, Ulaş; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
This thesis presents an automated shrinkage compensation algorithm for 2.5D specimens to be fabricated via Fused Filament Fabrication process. The algorithm operates on a closed curve representing the hole of a 2.5D specimen, and generates a corresponding compensation structure regardless of the hole’s geometric characteristics. Accordingly, this thesis initiates with introducing a viscoelastic model that would reproduce the behavior of the PLA filament from the time of extrusion onto the build plate until i...
