Composition dependence of lattice parameters and band gap energies of thallium based layered mixed crystals

2015-07-01
Compositional dependence of lattice parameters and unit cell volumes of TlMeX2-type (Me = Ga or In and X = S or Se) layered mixed crystals with monoclinic structure has been studied by X-ray diffraction technique. It is revealed that the lattice parameters of TlGa1-xInxSe2, TlGa(S1-xSex)(2), TlGa1-xInxS2 and TlIn(Se1-xSx)(2) mixed crystals increase due to the substitution of gallium atoms by indium and sulfur atoms by selenium. Moreover, the absorption edges of these mixed crystals have been investigated through the transmission and reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 400-1,100 nm. The analysis of absorption data has revealed the presence of both optical indirect and direct transitions. It is found that the energy band gaps of mixed crystals decrease due to the substitution of gallium atoms by indium and of sulfur atoms by selenium.

Güler, Işıkhan; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2011-09-15)
The Raman spectra of TlInS2xSe2(1-x) layered mixed crystals were studied for a wide composition range (0.25 <= x <= 1) in the frequency region 10-360 cm(-1) at room temperature. The shift of Raman-active phonon frequencies versus mixed crystals composition x were established. The effect of crystal disorder on the line width broadening of three high-frequency Raman-active modes is reported.

Optical properties of the TlGaxIn1-xS2 mixed crystals (0 <= x <= 1) have been studied by means of transmission and reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 400-1100 nm. The optical indirect band gap energies were determined through the analysis of the absorption data. It was found that the energy band gaps increase with increasing of gallium atoms content in the TlGaxIn1-xS2 mixed crystals. From the transmission measurements carried out in the temperature range of 10-300K, the rates of change of t...
Specific features of the optical spectra in Tl2In2S3Se layered single crystals
Hasanlı, Nızamı; Güler, Işıkhan (2007-06-01)
The optical properties of Tl2In2S3Se layered single crystals have been studied by means of transmission and reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 450-1100 nm. The analysis of the absorption data revealed the presence of both optical indirect and direct transitions with energy band gaps of 2.16 and 2.42 eV, respectively. The observed coexistence of indirect and direct energy band gaps is related to the anisotropy of the TI-containing layered crystals. The dispersion of the refractive index is di...
