Low temperature thermoluminescence behaviour of Y2O3 nanoparticles

Delice, S.
Hasanlı, Nızamı
Y2O3 nanoparticles were investigated using low temperature thermoluminescence (TL) experiments. TL glow curve recorded at constant heating rate of 0.4 K/s exhibits seven peaks around 19, 62, 91, 115, 162, 196 and 215 K. Activation energies and characteristics of traps responsible for observed curves were revealed under the light of results of initial rise analyses and T-max-T-stop experimental methods. Analyses of TL curves obtained at different stopping temperatures resulted in presence of one quasi-continuously distributed trap with activation energies increasing from 18 to 24 meV and six single trapping centers at 49, 117, 315, 409, 651 and 740 meV. Activation energies of all revealed centers were reported in the present paper. Structural characterization of Y2O3 nanoparticles was accomplished using X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy measurements. (C) 2019 Chinese Society of Rare Earths.

Low temperature thermoluminescence study of some ternary and quaternary layered structured semiconductors
Delice, Serdar; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Department of Physics (2016)
Thermoluminescence (TL) experiments for ternary and quaternary layered single crystals were carried out in 10−300 K temperature range by employing various heating rates between 0.2 and 1.2 K/s. The TL emissions coming from the trapping centers in the studied samples brought out the TL spectra exhibiting peaks at different temperature regions for each crystals. These peaks were taken under consideration to reveal the TL properties of the associated trap levels. Characterizations of defect centers existing in...
Traps distribution in sol-gel synthesized ZnO nanoparticles
Delice, S.; IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2019-06-15)
The distribution of shallow traps within the sol-gel synthesized ZnO nanoparticles was investigated using thermoluminescence (TL) experiments in the 10-300 K temperature range. TL measurements presented two overlapped peaks around 110 and 155 K. The experimental technique based on radiating the nanoparticles at different temperatures (T-exc.) between 60 and 125 K was carried out to understand the trap distribution characteristics of peaks. It was observed that peak maximum temperature shifted to higher valu...

Güler, Işıkhan; Ahmedova, F.; Guseinov, A.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2018-06-01)
The thermoluminescence (TL) of neodymium-doped gallium sulfide (GaS:Nd) single crystals was measured from 10 K to room temperature with various heating rates between 0.2 and 1.0 K/sec. Two peaks centered at 70.9 K and 116.0 K were observed when using a heating rate of 0.8 K/sec. Initial rise and curve fitting methods were used to obtain information on trap activation energies. Activation energies of 94 and 216 meV were found for two analyzable peaks. The heating rate dependencies of TL intensities revealed ...
Low-temperature thermoluminescence in layered structured Ga0.75In0.25Se single crystals
Isik, M.; Bulur, Enver; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2012-12-25)
Defect centers in Ga0.75In0.25Se single crystals have been studied performing the thermoluminescence measurements in the temperature range of 10-300 K. The observed glow curves were analyzed using curve fitting, initial rise, and different heating rate methods to determine the activation energies of the defect centers. Thermal cleaning process has been applied to decompose the overlapped curves. Four defect centers with activation energies of 9, 45,54 and 60 meV have been found as a result of the analysis. ...
Thermoluminescence properties of ZnO nanoparticles in the temperature range 10-300 K
IŞIK, MEHMET; YILDIRIM, TACETTİN; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2016-04-01)
Low-temperature thermoluminescence (TL) properties of ZnO nanoparticles grown by sol-gel method were investigated in the 10-300 K temperature range. TL glow curve obtained at 0.2 K/s constant heating rate exhibited one broad peak around 83 K. The observed peak was analyzed using curve fitting method to determine the activation energies of trapping center(s) responsible for glow curve. Analyses resulted in the presence of three peaks at 55, 85 and 118 K temperatures with activation energies of 12, 30 and 45 ...
