Radiation effects on Metal Oxide Semiconductor (MOS) capacitors with a HfO2 gate insulator have been studied. Because HfO2 is a promising high-k dielectric material for microelectronic applications, radiation effects on its performance in MOS devices is of interest. New results on radiation effects on HfO2, particularly at low gamma radiation doses, are presented. The results are compared with other systems including those of Al2O3 plus silicon based Si MOS capacitors. Both devices with different gate thicknesses were irradiated with Co-60 gamma source for varying exposure time. The midgap and flatband voltage shifts in these devices were measured and analyzed. Results show that gamma radiation does not cause significant variations in the HfO2 MOS especially at low doses.


Effect of High-Density Nanoparticles on Recrystallization and Texture Evolution in Ferritic Alloys
Aydoğan Güngör, Eda; Carvajal-Nunez, Ursula; Vogel, Sven C.; Li, Meimei; Maloy, Stuart A. (MDPI AG, 2019-03-01)
Ferritic alloys are important for nuclear reactor applications due to their microstructural stability, corrosion resistance, and favorable mechanical properties. Nanostructured ferritic alloys having a high density of Y-Ti-O rich nano-oxides (NOs < 5 nm) are found to be extremely stable at high temperatures up to similar to 1100 degrees C. This study serves to understand the effect of a high density of nano-particles on texture evolution and recrystallization mechanisms in ferritic alloys of 14YWT (14Cr-3W-...
Effect of expandable graphite on flame retardant, thermal and mechanical properties of thermoplastic polyurethane composites filled with huntite&hydromagnesite mineral
Guler, Turkan; Tayfun, Umit; Bayramlı, Erdal; DOĞAN, Mehmet (2017-01-10)
The effect of expandable graphite (EG) was studied on the flame retardant, thermal and mechanical properties of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) containing huntite&hydromagnesite (HH). According to the flammability tests results, the synergistic interaction was observed between HH and EG. The maximum limiting oxygen index (LOI value was observed at a ratio of 1:1 (HH:EG) and the highest vertical burning test (UL-94) rating of V0 was observed at a ratios of 4:1, 3:2 and 1:1. The synergistic interaction betwe...
Effect of High Temperature on Swellable Organically Modified Silica (SOMS) and Its Application for Preferential CO Oxidation in H-2 Rich Environment
Basu, Dishari; Ailawar, Saurabh; Çelik, Gökhan; Edmiston, Paul; Ozkan, Umit S. (Wiley, 2020-07-01)
Transition metal oxide catalysts tend to deactivate in the presence of moisture during hydrogen purification using preferential oxidation (PROX) of carbon monoxide (CO) . Thus, novel water-tolerant catalysts need to be developed. Herein, the evolution of heat treated swellable organically-modified silica (SOMS), a hydrophobic organic-inorganic hybrid material, has been characterized and applied as a catalyst support for PROX under moisture-rich conditions. While the SOMS-supported cobalt manganese oxide was...

This paper reports that the oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur contents of steels and alloys can vary as a result of irradiation by electrons and gamma rays at comparatively low temperatures. As this takes place, the materials can be either saturated with these elements, or these elements can be removed from the irradiated materials, depending on the irradiation medium. Transformations are initiated as a result of radiation-stimulated oxygenation of copper-iron, iron-manganese, and iron-nickel a...
Effect of substrate type on structural and optical properties of metal nanoparticles for plasmonic applications
Tanyeli, İrem; Turan, Raşit; Bek, Alpan; Department of Physics (2011)
In this work, the structural and optical properties of metal nanoparticles fabricated on various substrates have been investigated. The particles were fabricated by electron beam lithography (EBL) and dewetting of a thin metal film. The advantages and disadvantages of these two fabrication techniques are discussed by considering the properties of the nanoparticles and the applicability to large area substrates. Being a practical fabrication method, dewetting can be applied to any substrate with either small...
