Temperature-tuned band gap characteristics of InSe layered semiconductor single crystals

Layered structured InSe has attracted remarkable attention due to its effective characteristics utilized especially in optoelectronic device technology. This point directs researchers to investigate optical properties of InSe in great detail. The temperature dependent band gap characteristics of InSe and analyses performed on this dependency have been rarely studied in literature. Here, temperature-dependent transmission and room temperature reflection experiments were performed on InSe layered single crystals. The band gap energy was found around 1.22 eV at room temperature and 1.32 eV at 10 K. The temperature-gap energy dependency was analyzed using Varshni and O'Donnell-Chen models to reveal various optical parameters of the crystal. The structural characteristics; crystalline parameters like lattice constants, lattice strain, dislocation density and atomic compositions of InSe were also determined from the analyses of XRD and EDS measurements.

CdSe is one of the significant members of II-VI type semiconducting family and it has a wide range of technological applications in which optoelectronic devices take a special position. The present paper reports the structural and optical characteristics of thermally evaporated CdSe thin films. XRD pattern exhibited preferential orientation along (111) plane while atomic composition analyses resulted in the ratio of Cd/Se as closer to 1.0. Temperature-dependent band gap characteristics of CdSe thin films we...
Comparison of magnetic Barkhausen noise and ultrasonic velocity measurements for microstructure evaluation of SAE 1040 and SAE 4140 steels
Gür, Cemil Hakan; Çam, İbrahim (Elsevier BV, 2007-05-01)
The aim of this study is to compare the performance of magnetic Barkhausen noise and ultrasonic methods for the evaluation of the microstructure of commercial steels. Following the austenitization of the specimens made of SAE 1040 and SAE 4140, various heat treatments were carried out to obtain microstructures consisting of martensite, tempered martensite, fine pearlite-ferrite, and coarse pearlite-ferrite. The microstructures were initially characterized by SEM investigation and hardness measurements. The ...

Çetin, Asude; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Nalbant Esentürk, Emren (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2019-09-30)
The development of stable and effective earth-abundant metal oxide electrocatalysts is very crucial to improve competence of water electrolysis. In this study, iron manganite (FeMnO3) nanomaterials were synthesized as an affordable electrocatalyst for water oxidation reactions. The structural and chemical properties of FeMnO3 nanomaterials were studied by transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, energydispersive X-ray, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, inductively c...
Mechanical behaviour of Al2O3-ZrO2 minicomposite reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Informa UK Limited, 2003-08-01)
To understand the effect of a 'mesh-structured reinforcement' on the optical and mechanical properties of optomechanical composites, a unidirectional Al2O3 fibre-ZrO2 matrix minicomposite reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite has been fabricated. By regular alignment of the minicomposites in the glass matrix as part of the 'mesh structure' a high degree of optical transparency is obtained in the composite; this transparency is proportional to its 'optical window' regions. The mesh structured rein...
