Si nanocrystals in thermal oxide films (similar to 250 nm) were fabricated by 100 keV Si ion implantation followed by high temperature annealing. Two different doses were compared after annealing at 1050 degrees C for 2 h. A sample implanted with a dose of 1 x 10(17) cm(-2) shows a broad photo luminescence peak centered around 880 nm after annealing. A dose of 5 x 10(16) cm(-2) yields a considerable blue shift of about 100 nm relative to the higher dose as well as a reduction in intensity. Transmission electron microscopy study reveals a difference in the microstructure of the SiO2 films. Nanocrystals are clearly identified in the middle of the film for the highest dose, but not for the lower dose. The difference is discussed in terms of concentration dependent nucleation rate and differences in defect concentration. It is argued that the latter effect has a strong effect on the depth distribution of nanocrystals. (C) 2007 Published by Elsevier B.V.

XPS analysis with external bias: a simple method for probing differential charging
Ertaş, Gülay (Wiley, 2004-07-01)
The XPS spectra of thermally grown oxide layers on Si, Al, W and Hf substrates have been recorded while the samples were subjected to external d.c. voltage bias. The bias induces additional shifts in the measured binding energy differences between the XPS peaks of the oxide and that of the metal substrate in Si and Al (as probed both in the 2p and the KLL Auger regions), but not in W and Hf (as probed in the 4f region). These bias induced shifts are attributed to differential charging between the oxide laye...
BIOACTIVITY OF APATITE-WOLLASTONITE GLASS-CERAMICS PRODUCED BY MELTING CASTING
PARK, JONGEE; Öztürk, Abdullah (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2013-02-01)
Glass-ceramics containing only apatite and wollastonite crystals were produced in the system MgO-CaO-SiO2-P2O5-F by the melt casting process. The bioactivity of the glass-ceramics was determined by immersing the glass-ceramics in a simulated body fluid (SBF) and by assessing the resulting apatite formation on the free surface after various immersion durations. A 12-mu m-thick apatite layer formed on the surface of the glass-ceramic containing only apatite crystals after 20 days immersion in SBF. However, th...

Effect of oxygen flow rate on the low temperature deposition of titanium monoxide thin films via electron beam evaporation
Cosar, Mustafa Burak; Icli, Kerem Cagatay; Ozenbas, Macit (American Vacuum Society, 2019-05-01)
In this study, titanium monoxide thin films were evaporated by an electron beam source under different oxygen atmospheres at deposition temperatures not exceeding 80 degrees C. Deposition of thin films at low temperatures is a prerequisite for heat sensitive substrates. XRD results showed that crystallinity of titanium monoxide is achieved without the requirement of high temperature annealing. When oxygen is introduced into the coating chamber, a titanium peak is formed at exactly the Ti+2 position together...
Density functional and dynamics study of the dissociative adsorption of hydrogen on Mg (0001) surface
Kecik, D.; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (Elsevier BV, 2009-01-15)
A first principles study is performed to investigate the adsorption characteristics of hydrogen on magnesium surface. Substitutional and on-surface adsorption energies are calculated for Mg (0001) surface alloyed with the selected elements. To further analyze the hydrogen-magnesium interaction, first principles molecular dynamics method is used which simulates the behavior of H-2 at the surface. Also, charge density differences of substitutionally doped surface configurations were illustrated. Accordingly, ...
