ZnSe thin film is e-beam evaporated on monocrystalline p-Si to fabricate n-ZnSe/p-Si heterojunction. The electrical properties were investigated by current-voltage (I-V), capacitance-voltage (C-V) and conductance-voltage (G/w-V) measurements. The forward bias I-V characteristics were analyzed in the temperature range of 220-360 K. The fabricated diode structure exhibited rectifying characteristics with a two order rectification ratio. The current transport in the junction was modeled by the modification of thermionic emission (TE) in which the observed anomaly was related to the interfacial disorder at the junction. From this analysis, the zero-bias barrier height and ideality factor at room temperature condition were determined as 0.775 and 3.195 eV, respectively. The TE anomaly was also evaluated by considering the fluctuations due to the barrier inhomogeneity and the assumption of Gaussian distribution in barrier height. Therefore, the forward bias I-V results were used to determine the density of interface states. The frequency dependence of C-V and G/w-V characteristics of the n-ZnSe/p-Si heterostructure were studied by taking into account of the effect of the series resistance and interface states at room temperature. According to the high-low frequency capacitance and Hill-Coleman methods, density of interface states was calculated and these experimental values were found in decreasing behavior with increasing frequency. The voltage and frequency dependence of series resistance values obtained from C-V and G/w-V measurements were also related to the insulator layer and the distribution density of interface states.

Conductive composite films of cis-1,4-polybutadiene (PBD) with polythiophene, (PTh) were prepared electrochemicallly. Thiophene was polymerized on PBD-coated platinium electrodes. The composites with different PTh percentages showed conductivity in the order of 10(-3) (Omega cm)(-1). The characterization of the films was performed using FTIR, scanning electron microscope and differential scanning calorimetry techniques. In order to understand the dominant transport mechanism, the temperature dependence of c...
Experimental analysis on the measurement of ballistic properties of solid propellants
Cuerdaneli, S.; Ak, M. A.; Ulaş, Abdullah (2007-06-16)
Ballistic properties of solid propellants play an important role in the performance of the solid propellant rocket motors. Therefore, ballistic properties of a likely propellant should be known and provided to the design engineers. In this study, a specific AP/HTPB composite solid propellant (SCP) was examined to obtain steady-state linear burning rates as a function of pressure and propellant initial temperature, temperature sensitivity, and pressure deflagration limit (PDL). In some tests micro-thermocoup...

Zn-In-Se thin films were fabricated on the ultrasonically cleaned glass substrates masked with clover-shaped geometry by thermal evaporation of its elemental sources. Temperature-dependent conductivity characteristics of the films were investigated under dark and illuminated conditions. The semiconductor type of the films was found as n-type by thermal probe test. According to the van der Pauw technique, the dark electrical conductivity analyses showed that the variations of conductivity of unannealed and a...
Investigation of structural and optical parameters of Cu-Ag-In-Se thin films deposited by thermal evaporation method
Gullu, H. H.; CANDAN, İDRİS; COŞKUN, EMRE; Parlak, Mehmet (2015-01-01)
Annealing effect on the structural and optical properties of the quaternary Cu-Ag-In-Se thin film deposited by the thermal evaporation has been investigated. The evaporation source was prepared by using vertical Bridgman-Stockbarger crystal growth system. Structural analysis indicated that annealing the films following to the deposition resulted in the changes from amorphous to polycrystalline phase with the preferred orientation along (1 1 2) direction. In order to determine the optical properties of the t...

DEMİR, TEYFİK; Ubeyli, Mustafa; Yıldırım, Raif Orhan (2008-12-01)
In this study, impact behavior of the aluminum alloys of 7075 and 5083 and the high-strength low-alloy steel, AISI 4140 was investigated under 7.62 mm armor piercing (AP) projectile experimentally. Various heat treatments were applied to the alloys AISI 4140 and 7075 to see the effect of hardness and strength on their ballistic behaviors. Experimental results showed that among the investigated materials, the best ballistic performance was attained with the alloy, 7075-T651 which maintained the ballistic pro...
