In this work the effects of gamma radiation on the Raman spectra of Ge nanocrystals embedded in SiO2 have been investigated SiO2 films containing nanoparticles of Ge were grown using the r f -magnetron sputtering technique Formation of Ge nanocrystals was observed after high temperature annealing in an inert atmosphere and confirmed by Raman measurements The intensity of the Raman signal originating from Ge nanocrystals was found to decrease with increasing gamma radiation The study also includes the gamma radiation effects on MOS structure with Ge nanocrystals embedded in SiO2 The gamma radiation effects from 500 up to 4000 Gray were investigated Capacitance-voltage measurements were performed and analyzed Oxide traps and interface trap charges were calculated Results show that MOS structure with Ge nanocrystals embedded in SiO2 is a good candidate to be used in radiation sensors especially at high radiation doses (C) 2010 Elsevier B V All rights reserved


Ion beam synthesis and characterization of Ge nanoparticles in SiO2
Desnica, U. V.; Buljan, M.; Dubcek, P.; Siketic, Z.; Radovic, I. Bogdanovic; Bernstorff, S.; Serincan, U.; Turan, Raşit (Elsevier BV, 2006-08-01)
Ge quantum dots embedded in SiO2 have been obtained by implantation of Ge ions in the 10(16)-10(17) cm(-2) dose range, followed by post-implantation annealing in the temperature range T-a = 300-1000 degrees C. Using Rutherford back-scattering, grazing incidence X-ray diffraction and grazing incidence small angle X-ray scattering it was found that Ge-QDs are synthesized as discrete, spherical QDs, with radius ranging from 1.7 to 10 nm, depending on dose and T-a. For T-a above 800 degrees C the Ge atom diffus...
Use of Al(2)O(3) layer as a dielectric in MOS based radiation sensors fabricated on a Si substrate
YILMAZ, ERCAN; Dogan, Ilker; Turan, Raşit (Elsevier BV, 2008-11-01)
The use of Al(2)O(3) dielectric in MOS based radiation sensors has been investigated. Their response has been compared with conventional MOS capacitors with a SiO(2) dielectric. The study includes gamma radiation effects with dose up to 4 Gy. The effect of radiation has been determined from the valance band shift in CV curves. The amount of charge induced by the radiation has been calculated and compared with the response of MOS capacitors with SiO(2) with the same and different thicknesses. Fading properti...
Impact of composition modification induced by ion beam Coulomb-drag effects on the nanoindentation hardness of HT9
Gigax, Jonathan G.; Kim, Hyosim; Aydoğan Güngör, Eda; Price, L. M.; Wang, X.; Maloy, S. A.; Garner, F. A.; Shao, L. (Elsevier BV, 2019-04-01)
Accelerator-based ion irradiation is commonly used to simulate neutron damage, in lieu of neutron irradiation due to limited availability of fast flux facilities and little to no activation of the samples. Neutron atypical effects, however, must be recognized and their impact minimized in order to achieve the most accurate microstructural evolution under ion bombardment. Mechanical property changes, which arise from the synergy of numerous radiation-induced changes, are especially susceptible to these neutr...
Measurement of charm production in antineutrino charged-current interactions
Onengut, G; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2004-12-01)
During the years 1994-1997, the emulsion target of the CHORUS detector was exposed to the wide-band neutrino beam of the CERN SPS collecting about 10(6) neutrino interactions. A measurement of (nu) over bar (mu)-induced charm production is performed by using the presence of a 5% (nu) over bar (mu) component in the nu(mu) beam. The measurement takes advantage of the capability to observe the decay topology in the emulsion. The analysis is based on a sample of charged-current interactions with at least one id...
Pion electroproduction in parity violating elastic ep scattering experiment
Ong, S; Rekalo, MP; Van de Wiele, J (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1999-10-01)
This study has been developed for electron-proton scattering experiments when only the scattered electrons are detected. Pion electroproduction on the proton including the cascade pi(o) --> 2 gamma decay and the QED radiative corrections to elastic ep scattering are investigated. Our results are shown in the kinematical configuration of the parity violating electron scattering experiment planned at the Mainz Microtron (MAMI).
