A device for rapid visualization of electrical and spatial inhomegeneities of a semi-insulating GaAs (rho greater-than-or-equal-to 10(6) OMEGA cm) is described. This visualizer is a modification of the ionization type photographic system in which a semiconducting plate is placed between transparent plane parallel electrodes in the gas discharge cell. The gas discharge gaps are formed between free surfaces of the semiconductor and electrodes. When a voltage is applied to the electrodes a discharge luminescence glows in the gap under uniform infrared illumination of the semiconductor. The uniformity of glowing over the semiconductor area is determined by electrical homogeneity and infrared absorptivity of the material. The main discharge glow patterns on both sides and after chemical etching are similar, which reflects the fact that the structural defects are continuous within the plate. The observed patterns give information about EL2 centres in the GaAs semiconductor. Technical data of the ionization-type visualizer of electrical inhomogeneities in a semiconducting plate are given.

Perturbation analysis of sheath evolution, with application to plasma source ion implantation
Bektursunova, RM; Demokan, O (IOP Publishing, 2001-02-07)
A perturbation model has been developed to describe the evolution of an expanding plasma sheath around a cathode after a high-voltage negative pulse is applied to the cathode, simulating the conditions in devices such as those used for plasma source ion implantation. The set of governing equations consists of two coupled collisionless fluid equations for ions, and Poisson's equation and Boltzmann's assumption for electrons. The time-dependent, self-consistent expressions for the potential, ion density and i...
Spatial stabilization of Townsend and glow discharges with a semiconducting cathode
Salamov, BG; Ellialtioglu, S; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; Lebedeva, NN; Patriskii, LG (IOP Publishing, 1996-03-14)
The physical processes determining the functions of an ionization system and especially the discharge stabilization by the distributed resistance of a semiconducting cathode in such a system are studied. The current-voltage (I-U) characteristics of the system with a semiconducting GaAs cathode are obtained experimentally as functions of the gap pressure P (16-760 Torr) and inter-electrode distance d (10 mu m to 5 mm), which are varied for the first time over very wide ranges. The experiments showed that the...
Excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties of small quantum dots
KARABULUT, İBRAHİM; Safak, H.; Tomak, Mehmet (IOP Publishing, 2008-08-07)
The excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties of small quantum dots with a semiparabolic confining potential are studied under the density matrix formalism. First, within the framework of the strong confinement approximation, we present the excitonic states and then calculate the excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties, such as second harmonic generation, third harmonic generation, nonlinear absorption coefficient and refractive index changes. We find the explicit analytical expres...
Nonlinear intersubband optical absorption of Si delta-doped GaAs under an electric field
Yildirim, Hasan; Tomak, Mehmet (Wiley, 2006-10-01)
We study the nonlinear intersubband optical absorption of a single Si delta-doped GaAs sheet placed in the middle of a GaAs quantum well and subjected to an electric field. The Schrodinger and Poisson equations are solved self-consistently for various electric field strengths. The self-consistent solutions provide us with the correct confining potential, the wave functions, the corresponding subband energies and the subband occupations. The nonlinear optical intersubband absorption spectra are discussed wit...
ANOMALOUS AMPLITUDE DEPENDENT DISLOCATION DAMPING ASSOCIATED WITH ANHARMONIC OSCILLATIONS OF A COULOMBIC KINK CHAIN IN THE NONLINEAR DISSIPATIVE ATMOSPHERE OF IMPURITY ATOMS
OGURTANI, TO (Wiley, 1991-11-16)
The effects of the anharmonic interaction of the Coulombic kink chain on the strength and the position of the cold-work internal friction peaks associated with the nonlinearly power dissipating impurity atoms are investigated by a novel numerical simulation of the related discrete mathematical macro-model. The present macroscopic model of dislocation damping which relies heavily on the microscopic theory of kink-interstitial interactions shows very strong anomalous strain amplitude as well as the bias stres...
