In this article, the powder X-ray diffraction data and the dark and the photo-excited electrical conduction parameters of Tl2SSe crystal are reported. The dark and photon excited electrical conduction in the tetragonal crystal are found to be dominated by thermionic emission assisted variable range hopping conduction (VRH). The dark Molt's VRH parameters representing by the degree of disorder (T), the density of localized states near the Fermi level (N(E-F)), the average hopping range (R) and average hopping energy (W) exhibited wide tunability via incremental photon intensity. Particularly, while the dark values of T-0, W and R significantly decreased from 2.32x 10(8) to 1.52x10(5) K, 114 to 18.25 meV and from 66.15 to 10.58 A, respectively, the values of N(E-F) increased from 7.23 x 10(18) to 1.10 x 10(22) cm(-3)/eV when the crystal was photo-excited with a 53.6 mW/cm(2) light intensity. These variations in the hopping parameters via photon excitations are promisig for using the crystal in the fabrication of well controlled, widely tunable, low energy consuming and highly efficient electronic devices.

Radiation of dipoles in multilayered cylinder with ferrite layer
Aydin, O; Hizal, A (1996-07-26)
Radiation characteristics of infinitesimal dipole in multilayered circular cylindrical structure including gyromagnetic media are investigated. Transversal field equations in spectral domain are obtained for gyromagnetic medium in cylindrical coordinates. These expressions are formed into a set of linear differential equations. The solution at each layer is expressed in terms of state transition matrices. Fields are matched at the interfaces. Far fields are evaluated asymptotically. The effects of changing ...
Thermally assisted variable range hopping in Tl4S3Se crystal
ZIQAN, ABDELHALIM M; QASRAWI, A F; MOHAMMAD, ABDULFTAH H; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2015-6)
In this study, a modified model for the application of the thermionic and hopping current conduction mechanisms in the presence of continuous mixed conduction is investigated, discussed, experimented and simulated. It is observed that there exists a contribution from the hopping conductivity to the total conduction even at temperature ranges where the thermionic emission is mainly dominant. The contribution weight of a specific mechanism at particular temperature range is estimated. In addition, a modifi...
Frequency Dependent Dielectric Properties of ZnSe/p-Si Diode
Güllü, Hasan Hüseyin; YILDIZ, DİLBER ESRA (2019-03-01)
The study on electrical and dielectric properties of the ZnSe/p-Si diode have been investigated using admittance measurements in the frequency range of 50 kHz - 1 MHz at room temperature. The experimental values of dielectric constant and dielectric loss are found in decreasing behavior with increase in frequency due to the characteristics of the interface capacitance in the diode and so that the similar behavior was observed in loss tangent. With the contribution of the series resistance, the results of th...

Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2007-09-01)
The structural and optical properties of Bridgman method grown Tl2InGaSe4 crystals have been investigated by means of room temperature x-ray diffraction, and transmittance and reflectance spectral analysis, respectively. The x-ray diffraction technique has shown that Tl2InGaSe4 is a single phase crystal of a monoclinic unit cell that exhibits the lattice parameters of a = 0.77244 nm, b = 0.64945 nm, c = 0.92205 nm and beta = 95.03 degrees . The optical data have revealed an indirect allowed transition band ...

Isik, M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2012-06-15)
The optical properties of Tl2Ga2S3Se layered crystalline semiconductors were investigated from transmission, reflection and ellipsometric measurements. The experimental results of the room temperature transmission and reflection measurements performed in the wavelength range of 400-1100 nm showed the presence of both indirect and direct transitions in the band structure of the crystals with 2.38 and 2.62 eV band gap energies.
