In this work, characteristics of silicon-based p(+) type, intrinsic (I), n(-) type (Si-PIN) photodiodes with active area of 3.5 x 3.5 mm(2), 5.0 x 5.0 mm(2), or 7.0 x 7.0 mm(2) and their possible usage in optoelectronics were studied. The devices were fabricated in the Radiation Detector Application and Research Center (NURDAM) of Bolu Abant izzet Baysal University, Turkey. To acquire the device specifications, the current-voltage (I-V) and the capacitance-voltage (C-V) measurements were carried out in the photoconductive mode. Quantum efficiency and spectral responsivity measurements were performed in the photovoltaic mode. Both measurements were carried out in a dark environment at room temperature. The measured values of the dark current (I-dc) and the capacitance of photodiodes were -6.97 to -19.10 nA and 23 to 61 pF at -5 V, respectively. The quantum efficiency measurements of the devices increased up to 66%. P responsivity was found to be 0.436 +/- 1 mA/W at 820 nm. The results indicate that the I-dc current and the performance of the devices were improved. Therefore, the devices can be utilized for optoelectronics applications and commercial usage.


Measurement of the B-s(0) ->mu(+)mu(-) Branching Fraction and Search for B-0 -> mu(+)mu(-) with the CMS Experiment
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2013-09-01)
Results are presented from a search for the rare decays B-s(0) -> mu(+) mu(-) and B-0 -> mu(+) mu(-) in pp collisions at root s = 7 and 8 TeV, with data samples corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5 and 20 fb(-1), respectively, collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. An unbinned maximum-likelihood fit to the dimuon invariant mass distribution gives a branching fraction 'B(B-s(0) -> mu(+)mu(-)) = (3.0(-0.9)(+1.0)) x 10(-9), where the uncertainty includes both statistical and systematic contributi...
Measurement of Prompt D-0 Meson Azimuthal Anisotropy in Pb-Pb Collisions at root S-NN=5.02 TeV
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-05-01)
The prompt D-0 meson azimuthal anisotropy coefficients, v(2) and ?v(3), are measured at midrapidity ( |y| < 1.0) in Pb-Pb collisions at a center-of-mass energy root s(NN) = 5.02 TeV per nucleon pair with data collected by the CMS experiment. The measurement is performed in the transverse momentum (p(T)) range of 1 to 40 GeV/c, for central and midcentral collisions. The v(2) coefficient is found to be positive throughout the p(T) range studied. The first measurement of the prompt D-0 meson v(3) coefficient i...
Measurement of the Upsilon(1S), Upsilon(2S), and Upsilon(3S) Polarizations in pp Collisions at root s 7 TeV
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2013-02-01)
The polarizations of the Upsilon(1S), Upsilon(2S), and Upsilon(3S) mesons are measured in proton-proton collisions at root s = 7 TeV, using a data sample of Upsilon(nS) -> mu(+)mu(-) decays collected by the CMS experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.9 fb(-1). The dimuon decay angular distributions are analyzed in three different polarization frames. The polarization parameters lambda(theta), lambda(phi), and lambda(theta phi), as well as the frame-invariant quantity (lambda) over tilde, ...
Precision Measurement of the (e(+) + e(-)) Flux in Primary Cosmic Rays from 0.5 GeV to 1 TeV with the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station
Aguilar, M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2014-11-26)
We present a measurement of the cosmic ray (e(+) + e(-)) flux in the range 0.5 GeV to 1 TeV based on the analysis of 10.6 million (e(+) + e(-)) events collected by AMS. The statistics and the resolution of AMS provide a precision measurement of the flux. The flux is smooth and reveals new and distinct information. Above 30.2 GeV, the flux can be described by a single power law with a spectral index gamma = -3.170 +/- 0.008(stat + syst) +/- 0.008(energy scale).
Measurement of Inclusive W and Z Boson Production Cross Sections in pp Collisions at root s=8 TeV
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2014-05-01)
A measurement of total and fiducial inclusive W and Z boson production cross sections in pp collisions at root s = 8 TeV is presented. Electron and muon final states are analyzed in a data sample collected with the CMS detector corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 18.2 +/- 0.5 pb(-1). The measured total inclusive cross sections times branching fractions are sigma(pp -> WX) x B(W -> l upsilon) = 12.21 +/- 0.03(stat) +/- 0.24(syst) +/- 0.32(lum) nb and sigma(pp -> ZX) x B(Z -> l(+)l(-)) = 1.15 +/- 0.0...
