Structural and electrical properties of TlGa(SxSe1-x)(2) mixed crystals

Parlak, Mehmet
Mamedov, G. M.
Systematic investigations of crystal structure, electrical conductivity and photoconductivity have been carried out on the complete series of TlGa(SxSe1-x)(2) solid solutions. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses together with TREOR90 computer program have revealed that this compound shows different structural modifications at each composition. The possible charge transfer mechanisms have been investigated by performing temperature dependent electrical conductivity measurements in the temperature range of 100-400 K for different values of x. Information about the band gap of these composite solution have been investigated by means of spectral distribution of photocurrent as a function of x. Temperature dependent photoconductivity behaviour and characteristics of the recombination centers have also been investigated by measuring photocurrent at various illumination intensities and applied electric fields in the studied temperature range.


Acoustic phonons scattering mobility and carrier effective mass in In6S7 crystals
Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2006-12-21)
Systematic dark electrical resistivity and Hall coefficient measurements have been carried out in the temperature range of 170-320 K on n-type In6S7 crystals. The analysis of the electrical resistivity and carrier concentration reveals the intrinsic type of conduction with an average energy band gap of similar to 0.75 eV The carrier effective masses of the conduction and valence bands were calculated from the intrinsic temperature-dependent carrier concentration data and were found to be 0.565m(0) and 2.020...
Properties of YBCO superconductors prepared by ammonium nitrate melt and solid-state reaction methods
Sozeri, Huseyin; Ozkan, Husnu; Ghazanfari, Nader (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-31)
Ceramic YBCO superconductors were prepared by: (1) ammonium nitrate melt, (2) solid-state reaction methods and the properties of the samples obtained were compared. Under the same annealing conditions single phase YBCO was synthesized at a lower temperature by the former method. Moreover, at 900 degrees C Y-123 phase and the initially adjusted Y-211 additive could be formed using ammonium nitrate melt, but not with the solid-state method which leads Y-123 at a higher temperature (950 degrees C) without Y-21...
The structural and electronic properties of BN and BP compounds and BNxP1-x alloys
Mohammad, Rezek; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (Elsevier BV, 2009-06-10)
The structural and electronic properties of BN and BP compounds and BNxP1-x alloys have been investigated by full potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method based on density functional theory (DFT). The total energies and electronic band structures of these compounds have been calculated for different approximations of exchange-correlation energy. The comparative study has showed that the Perdew-Wang-generalized gradient approximation (PW-GGA) is the best one to produce the measured structur...
Collection of magnesium in an Mg-Pb alloy cathode placed at the bottom of the cell in MgCl2 electrolysis
Demirci, Gokhan; Karakaya, İshak (Elsevier BV, 2007-07-31)
The electrolytic cell features a top inserted graphite anode and a cathode, Mg-Pb alloy, placed at the bottom of the cell to reduce recombination of magnesium and chlorine in the inter-electrode region. The process involved the electrolysis Of M902 to form an Mg-Pb alloy that is heavier than the electrolyte and a subsequent refining of the alloy to obtain electrolytic grade magnesium. To achieve metallic magnesium production rate with the present cell, that is comparable with the conventional methods, highe...
Local structure in marginal glass forming Al-Sm alloy
Kalay, Yunus Eren; Kramer, M. J.; Anderson, I. E. (Elsevier BV, 2010-08-01)
The local structure in rapidly quenched Al(100-x)Smx (x = 8, 10, 11, and 12) and liquid Al89Sm11 has been investigated using a combination of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and high-energy synchrotron X-ray diffraction (HEXRD). TEM analysis showed a featureless microstructure with diffuse scattering in rapidly quenched Al(100-x)Smx (x = 8, 10, 11, and 12) within the glass formation composition range under the bright field (BF) conditions. Total structure factor analysis of the liquid and as-quenched...
