This study reveals the electrical properties of In/HfO2/n-Si structure with atomic layer-deposited interfacial oxide layer, HfO2 thin film between In top metal contact and monocrystalline Si wafer substrate. From the dark current-voltage measurements, the diode structure showed good rectifying behavior and low saturation current of about two order of magnitude and 1.2 x 10(- 9) A, respectively. According to the conventional thermionic emission model, zero-bias barrier height and ideality factor were calculated from the forward bias current-voltage curve at room temperature under dark conditions as 0.79 eV and 4.22 eV, respectively. In order to get detailed information about density of interface states and series resistance of this structure, capacitance-voltage and conductance-voltage measurements in the frequency range of 10-1000 kHz were performed. As a result, a decreasing capacitance profile with increasing frequency was obtained. In addition, peak-like behavior in the capacitance profiles was observed and these were found to be the indication of density of states. Further analysis was performed on the evaluation of density of interface states values and these values were calculated by using two different methods: Hill-Coleman and high-low frequency capacitance. These profiles were also analyzed by eliminating the effect of series resistance values on the measured capacitance and conductance; then the values of corrected capacitance and conductance as a function of applied voltage were discussed. Based on these analyses on the capacitive characteristics of the diode, dielectric constant, dielectric loss, loss tangent, electrical conductivity, and the real and imaginary part of electric modulus were investigated for complete understanding on the diode characteristics.

This study focuses on both epitaxial growths of InxGa1-xN epilayers with graded In content, and the performance of solar cells structures grown on sapphire substrate by using metal organic chemical vapor deposition. The high resolution X-ray and Hall Effect characterization were carried out after epitaxial InGaN solar cell structures growth. The In content of the graded InGaN layer was calculated from the X-ray reciprocal space mapping measurements. Indium contents of the graded InGaN epilayers change from ...

Structural, optical, and electrical properties ZnTe thin films grown by magnetron sputtering technique were studied by X-ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and electrical conductivity measurements. Structural analyses showed that ZnTe thin films grown on soda-lime glass substrates have a cubic crystalline structure. This crystalline nature of the films was also discussed in terms of Raman active modes. From atomic force microscopy images, the smooth and dense surface profile was o...

Integration of oxygen deficient sub-stoichiometric titanium dioxide (TiO2-x) thin films as the electron transporting-hole blocking layer in solar cell designs are expected to reduce fabrication costs by eliminating high temperature processes while maintaining high conversion efficiencies. In this paper, we conducted a study to reveal the electrical properties of TiO2-x thin films grown on crystalline silicon (c-Si) substrates by atomic layer deposition (ALD) technique. Effect of ALD substrate temperature, p...
Nonlinear free vibrations of curved double walled carbon nanotubes using differential quadrature method
Ciğeroğlu, Ender (Elsevier BV, 2014-11-01)
Nonlinear free vibration analysis of curved double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) embedded in an elastic medium is studied in this study. Nonlinearities considered are due to large deflection of carbon nanotubes (geometric nonlinearity) and nonlinear interlayer van der Waals forces between inner and outer tubes. The differential quadrature method (DQM) is utilized to discretize the partial differential equations of motion in spatial domain, which resulted in a nonlinear set of algebraic equations of motion...
