Gallium sulfide (GaS) single crystals were investigated using thermoluminescence (TL) and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) measurements. TL experiments performed in the room temperature (RT)-450 °C range presented a glow curve consisting in six single discrete peaks. Analyses of TL glow curve by computerized glow curve deconvolution method showed that the trapping centers responsible for peaks are located at 0.98, 1.09, 1.15, 1.76, 1.87 and 1.90 eV. The order of kinetics found between 1 and 2 indicated the existence of general order of kinetics in TL process. Dose-dependent OSL measurements were performed in between 0.5 and 300 Gy. Taking into account the OSL response-dose relation, it was concluded that GaS single crystals may be a potential candidate as OSL dosimetric material in the 5 and 150 Gy range. Minimum detectable dose (MDD) value of the GaS single crystals were also determined using OSL signals. Furthermore, the reusability of GaS single crystals as dosimetric material and effect of fading with storage time were investigated.

TL and TSC studies on TlGaSe2 layered single crystals
Isik, M.; Bulur, Enver; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
Defects in - as grown - TlGaSe2 layered single crystals were investigated using Thermoluminescence (TL) and Thermally Stimulated Currents (TSC) techniques in the temperature range 10-300 K. TL and TSC curves of samples illuminated using a light with energy greater than the band gap of the material, i.e. blue light (similar to 470 nm) at 10 K, exhibited peaks around 27 and 28 K, respectively, when measured by heating up the samples at a rate of 1 K/s. TL and TSC curves were analyzed to characterize the defec...

Isik, M.; SARIGÜL, NESLİHAN; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2020-08-01)
Trapping center properties of bismuth silicon oxide (Bi12SiO20) single crystals were investigated by thermoluminescence (TL) measurements performed in the 50–400 °C temperature range. Experimental TL curve recorded at heating rate of 1 °C/s presented two overlapped peaks around 279 and 362 °C. The heating rate dependency of TL curve was also studied for heating rates between 1 and 6 °C/s. The measured TL curves were analyzed using curve fitting, initial rise and different heating rate methods. The results o...
Annealing effect on the low temperature thermoluminescence properties of GaSe single crystals
Isik, M.; Hadibrata, W.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2014-10-01)
Trapping centers in as-grown GaSe single crystals have been investigated by thermoluminescence (TL) measurements in the temperature range of 30-300 K. The analysis of the observed peaks in TL glow curve to determine the activation energies of the associated centers were accomplished using curve fitting, initial rise and peak shape methods. Activation energies of the revealed four trapping centers obtained from various methods were in good agreement with each other on the energy values of 0.14, 0.18, 0.24 an...

The crystal structure, temperature-dependent electrical conductivity, Hall coefficient, current-voltage characteristics, absorption spectra and temperature- and illumination-dependent photoconductivity of Tl3InSe4 single crystals were investigated. Tl3InSe4 crystallises in a body-centred lattice with tetragonal symmetry and belongs to the space group [image omitted]. The crystals are extrinsic p-type semiconductors and exhibit a conductivity conversion from p- to n-type at a critical temperature, Tc, of 283...

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 ...
