In this work, the dark electrical resistivity, charge carriers density and Hall mobility of Ga4Se3S single crystals have been measured and analyzed in the temperature region of 200-350 K. The data analyses have shown that this crystal exhibits an extrinsic n-type of conduction. The temperature-dependent dark electrical resistivity analysis reflected the existence of energy level as 0.31 eV. The temperature dependence of carrier density was analyzed by using the single donor-single acceptor model. The latter analysis allowed the determination of electron effective mass as 0.38m(0), hole effective mass as 0.42m(0), donor impurity energy level as 0.45 eV, acceptor-donor concentration ratio (N-a/N-d) as 0.97 and a donor-acceptor concentration difference as N-d - N-a = 1.5 x 10(11) cm(-3). The Hall mobility of Ga4Se3S is found to increase with decreasing temperature following a power law of slope of similar to(-6.3). The abnormal behavior of mobility was attributed to the domination of phonon scattering and/or crystals anisotropy. (c) 2008 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

Transport and recombination kinetics in TlGaTe2 crystals
QASRAWI, ATEF FAYEZ HASAN; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Wiley, 2009-11-01)
In this work, the transport and recombination mechanisms as well as the average hole-relaxation time in TlGaTe2 have been investigated by means of temperature-dependent dark electrical conductivity, photoexcitation intensity-dependent photoconductivity, and Hall effect measurements, respectively. The experimental data analysis revealed the existence of a critical temperature of 150 K. At this temperature, the transport mechanism is disturbed. The dark conductivity data analysis allowed the determination of ...
Investigation of localized levels in GaS0.5Se0.5 layered crystals by means of electrical, space-charge limited current and photoconductivity measurements
Qasrawi, AF; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Wiley, 2002-11-16)
To identify the localized levels in GaS0.5Se0.5 single crystals, the dark electrical conductivity, current-voltage characteristics and photoconductivity measurements were carried out in the temperature range of 250-400 K. Temperature dependence of dark electrical conductivity and the space-charge limited current studies indicate the presence of a single discrete trapping level located at 0.31 eV below the conduction band with a density of about 1.3 x 10(15) cm(-3). The conductivity data above 320 K reveal a...
The effect of substrate and post-annealing temperature on the structural and optical properties of polycrystalline InSe thin films
Parlak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 1998-06-08)
X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, compositional analysis and transmission measurements are performed on InSe thin films grown by thermal evaporation at different substrate and annealing temperatures of 150-250 degrees C and 100-200 degrees C, respectively. An analysis of structural measurements indicates that there exist three phases of In-Se system like InSe, In2Se3 and In6Se7 in the same film at low-substrate temperature, but at high-substrate temperatures, In2Se3 phase was absent. The comp...
Determination of trapping parameters in Tl4Ga3InSe8 single crystals by thermally stimulated luminescence
Delice, S.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2014-05-15)
Thermo luminescence (IL) measurements were performed on Tl4Ga3InSe8 layered single crystals grown by Bridgman method in the temperature range of 10-200 K. After illuminating the sample with blue light at 10 K and heating at a rate of 1.0 K s(-1) in dark, TL curve exhibited peaks around 46 and 123 K. Thermal activation energies of the trap levels corresponding to the observed peaks were determined using curve fitting, initial rise and peak shape methods. Analyses have revealed the presence of two defect cent...
