The corrosion behaviors of pure magnesium, AZ91, and WE43 alloys have been evaluated by weight loss, hydrogen evolution rate, pH change measurements and potentiodynamic polarization as well as electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) methods. Main corrosion product formed on the surface of Mg/Mg-alloys after immersion of 24 h was Mg(OH)(2) on the other hand, at the end of the 20 days additional CaCO3 which was found to display a critical role in degradation characteristics of the samples, was found. Examination in the cross section of the polished surfaces revealed that protective layers became thicker and corrosion rate of the samples decreased possibly due to increased protective abilities of the surfaces. Intermetallics in AZ91 and WE43 alloys acted as cathodic centers and induced micro galvanic corrosion. Undermining of intermetallics in WE43 alloy intensified the corrosion rate. AZ91 alloy exhibited the lowest corrosion rate among the samples when tested in simulated body fluid (SBF).


Analysis of the Hall effect in TlGaTe2 single crystals
QASRAWI, ATEF FAYEZ HASAN; Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2009-06-10)
The electrical resistivity and Hall coefficient of p-type TlGaTe2 crystals were measured in the temperature range of 110-320 K. The electrical resistivity, charge carrier density and Hall mobility data for the crystals have been analyzed by means of existing theories and models to determine the extrinsic energy levels, the carrier effective mass, the donor and acceptor concentrations and the dominant scattering mechanism in the crystal as well. The analysis of the temperature-dependent electrical resistivit...
A comparative ab initio study of the ferroelectric behaviour in KNO3 and CaCO3
Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Alpay, S. P. (IOP Publishing, 2007-12-12)
Potassium nitrate exhibits a reentrant phase transformation, where a metastable ferroelectric phase (gamma-KNO3) is formed upon cooling from high temperature. The layered structure of this ferroelectric phase is composed of alternating layers of potassium ions and nitrate groups; wherein, a central nitrogen atom is coordinated by three equilateral triangular oxygen atoms. The group layer is located less than midway between the cation layers, giving rise to a polar structure. From a structural perspective, t...
Influence of photonic excitations on the electrical parameters of TlInS2 crystals
QASRAWI, ATEF FAYEZ HASAN; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Wiley, 2010-04-01)
The photo-excitation effect on the current transport mechanism in TlInS2 crystals has been studied by means of dark and illuminated conductivity measurements. The temperature-dependent electrical conductivity analysis in the temperature region of 110-340 K revealed the domination of the thermionic emission and the thermally assisted variable range hopping (VRH) of charge carriers above and below 160 K, respectively. Above 160 K, the conductivity activation energies in the dark are found to be 0.28 and 0.15 ...
Heterojunction solar cells with integrated Si and ZnO nanowires and a chalcopyrite thin film
KARAAĞAÇ, Hakan; Parlak, Mehmet; YENGEL, Emre; Islam, M. Saif (Elsevier BV, 2013-06-15)
ZnO nanowires (NWs) have been successfully synthesized using a hydrothermal technique on both glass and silicon substrates initially coated with a sputtered ZnO thin film layer. Varying ZnO seed layer thicknesses were deposited to determine the effect of seed layer thickness on the quality of ZnO NW growth. The effect of growth time on the formation of ZnO NWs was also studied. Experimental results show that these two parameters have an important effect on formation, homogeneity and vertical orientation of ...
Visible photoluminescence from chain Tl4In3GaSe8 semiconductor
Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2006-07-05)
The emission band spectra of undoped Tl4In3GaSe8 chain crystals have been studied in the 16-300 K temperature range and the 535-740 nm wavelength range. Two visible photoluminescence bands centred at 589 and 633 nm were observed at T = 16 K. Variations of both bands have been investigated over a wide range of laser excitation intensity ( 3 x 10(-4) -1.2 W cm(-2)). Radiative transitions with energies of 2.10 and 1.96 eV from two upper conduction bands to two shallow acceptor levels (0.03 and 0.01 eV), respec...
