The reflectance spectra and refractive index of Nd:YAG laser-oxidized SiO2 layers with thicknesses from 15 to 75 nm have been investigated with respect to the laser beam energy density and substrate temperature. Thickness and refractive index of films have been determined from reflectance measurements at normal light incidence in the spectral range 300-800 nm. It was found that the oxide-growth conditions at higher substrate temperatures and laser powers greater than 3.36 J cm(-2) provides a better film quality in terms of both optical thickness and refractive index. However, the refractive indices of the films are smaller in the whole spectral range studied as compared to that of conventional thermally grown SiO2. This might be due to the porous structure formed during the laser-assisted oxidation. The results suggest the need of post-oxidation annealing to improve the refractive indices of the films, suitable for Si-device applications.


Resonant Raman scattering near the free-to-bound transition in undoped p-GaSe
Hasanlı, Nızamı; Ozkan, H (Wiley, 2001-01-01)
Raman spectra of GaSe layered crystal have been measured using a He-Ne laser and temperature tuning the free-to-bound gap in the range 10-290 K. Resonance enhancement of E'((12)) mode has been observed for both incident and scattered photon energies equal to the free-to-bound transition energy.
Dispersive optical constants and temperature tuned band gap energy of Tl2InGaS4 layered crystals
Goksen, K.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Ozkan, H. (IOP Publishing, 2007-06-27)
The optical properties of Tl2InGaS4 layered single crystals have been studied by means of transmission and reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 400-1100 nm. The analysis of the room temperature absorption data revealed the presence of both optical indirect and direct transitions with band gap energies of 2.35 and 2.54 eV, respectively. Transmission measurements carried out in the temperature range of 10-300 K revealed that the rate of change of the indirect band gap with temperature is gamma =...
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...
Composition-tuned band gap energy and refractive index in GaSxSe1-x layered mixed crystals
IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2017-04-01)
Transmission and reflection measurements on GaSxSe1-x mixed crystals (0 <= x <= 1) were carried out in the 400-1000 nm spectral range. Band gap energies of the studied crystals were obtained using the derivative spectra of transmittance and reflectance. The compositional dependence of band gap energy revealed that as sulfur (selenium) composition is increased (decreased) in the mixed crystals, band gap energy increases quadratically from 1.99 eV (GaSe) to 2.55 eV (GaS). Spectral dependencies of refractive i...
Photoelectronic and electrical properties of CuIn5S8 single crystals
Qasrawi, AF; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Wiley, 2003-01-01)
To identify the impurity levels in CuIn5S8 single crystals, the dark electrical conductivity and photoconductivity measurements were carried out in the temperature range of 50-460 K. The data reflect the intrinsic and extrinsic nature of the crystals above and below 300 K, respectively. Energy band gaps of 1.35 and 1.31 eV at 0 K and 300 K, were defined from the dark conductivity measurements and the photocurrent spectra, respectively. The dark and photoconductivity data in the extrinsic temperature region ...
