Qasrawi, A. F.

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 2.020m(0), respectively. The temperature-dependent Hall mobility was observed to follow the mu alpha T-3/2 law and was analyzed assuming the domination of acoustic phonons scattering. The acoustic phonons scattering mobility was calculated from the crystal's structural data with no assumptions. The experimental Hall mobility data of In6S7 crystals coincides with the theoretical acoustic phonons scattering mobility data with acoustic deformation potential of 6.4 eV.

ÖZDEMİR, Orhan; Anutgan, Mustafa; Aliyeva-Anutgan, Tamila; Atilgan, Ismail; Katircioglu, Bayram (Elsevier BV, 2009-05-05)
Boron nitride (BN) thin film was grown by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) technique and was investigated by UV-Visible transmission, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and ac conductance spectroscopies. Mainly the density of electronic localized states (D-it) at BN/Si interface was obtained by continuum and statistical models of ac conductance through an MIS structure (Al/BN film/Si). The origins of the electronic defects have been outlined and discussed within the frame of a nitrogen defic...

Qasrawi, AF; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2004-07-02)
Systematic dark electrical conductivity and Hall mobility measurements have been carried out in the temperature range of 200-350 K on p-type TlGaSe2 crystals. The analysis of the temperature-dependent electrical conductivity and carrier concentration reveals the extrinsic type of conduction with an acceptor impurity level located at 0.33 eV, and donor and acceptor concentrations of 9.0 x 10(15) and 1.3 x 10(16) cm(-3), respectively. A hole and electron effective masses of 0.520m(0) and 0.325m(0), respective...

Qasrawi, A. F.; Abd-Alrazq, Mariam M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-15)
A new p-n interface made of p-type MgO as an optical window to the n-type Ga4Se3S crystals is investigated by means of optical reflectance, transmittance and absorbance in the incident light wavelength (k) range of 200-1100 nm. The reflectivity spectral analysis as a function of angle of incidence for MgO, Ga4Se3S and the Ga4Se3S/MgO layers revealed Brewster angles of 75 degrees, 80 degrees and 70 degrees with the corresponding dielectric constants of 13.93, 32.16 and eMgO 7: 55eGa(4)Se(3)S, respectively. T...
Ultrasonic characterisation of hot-rolled and heat-treated plain carbon steels
Gür, Cemil Hakan (British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT), 2003-09-01)
The aim of the study is to characterise hot-rolled and heat-treated plain-C steels (SAE 1020 and 1050) by ultrasonic velocity and attenuation measurements. Various heat treatment procedures were applied by changing the austenitisation temperature and the cooling rate to distinguish the affects of grain size and microstructural phases on ultrasonic properties. Velocities of both longitudinal and transversal waves were measured and backwall echo patterns were obtained for each specimen. The variations in the ...
Determination of trapping center parameters of Tl2InGaS4-layered crystals by thermally stimulated current measurements
Mogaddam, Nader A. P.; Yuksek, N. S.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Ozkan, H. (Elsevier BV, 2006-06-29)
We have carried out thermally stimulated current measurements on as-grown Tl2InGaS4-layered single crystals in the low temperature range 10-60 K with different heating rates. We found experimental evidence for the presence of two shallow hole trapping centers with activation energies of 4 and 10 meV. We have determined the trap parameters using various methods of analysis, and these agree with each other. Their capture cross-sections have been found to be 6.5 x 10(-26) and 4.0 x 10(-25) cm(2), respectively,...
