This study focuses on both epitaxial growths of InxGa1-xN epilayers with graded In content, and the performance of solar cells structures grown on sapphire substrate by using metal organic chemical vapor deposition. The high resolution X-ray and Hall Effect characterization were carried out after epitaxial InGaN solar cell structures growth. The In content of the graded InGaN layer was calculated from the X-ray reciprocal space mapping measurements. Indium contents of the graded InGaN epilayers change from 8.8 to 7.1 % in Sample A, 15.7-7.1 % in Sample B, and 26.6-15.1 % in Sample C. The current voltage measurements of the solar cell devices were carried out after a standard micro fabrication procedure. Sample B exhibits better performance with a short-circuit current density of 6 mA/cm(2), open-circuit voltage of 0.25 V, fill factor of 39.13 %, and the best efficiency measured under a standard solar simulator with one-sun air mass 1.5 global light sources (100 mW/cm(2)) at room temperature for finished devices was 0.66 %.


Frequency effect on electrical and dielectric characteristics of HfO2-interlayered Si-based Schottky barrier diode
Gullu, H. H.; Yildiz, D. E.; Surucu, O.; Parlak, Mehmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-06-01)
This study reveals the electrical properties of In/HfO2/n-Si structure with atomic layer-deposited interfacial oxide layer, HfO2 thin film between In top metal contact and monocrystalline Si wafer substrate. From the dark current-voltage measurements, the diode structure showed good rectifying behavior and low saturation current of about two order of magnitude and 1.2 x 10(- 9) A, respectively. According to the conventional thermionic emission model, zero-bias barrier height and ideality factor were calcula...
Stability analysis of graphene nanoribbons by molecular dynamics simulations
Dugan, N.; Erkoç, Şakir (Wiley, 2008-04-01)
In this work, stability of graphene nanoribbons are investigated using molecular dynamics. Simulations include heating armchair and zigzag-edged nanoribbons of widths varying between one and nine hexagonal rings until the bonds between carbon atoms start to break. Breaking temperatures and binding energies per atom for different widths are presented for both armchair and zigzag-edged cases. A nontrivial relation between stability and width is observed and discussed.
Segregation formation, thermal and electronic properties of ternary cubic CdZnTe clusters: MD simulations and DFT calculations
KURBAN, MUSTAFA; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2017-04-01)
Surface and core formation, thermal and electronic properties of ternary cubic CdZnTe clusters are investigated by using classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and density functional theory (DFT.) calculations. In this work, MD simulations of the CdZnTe clusters are performed by means of LAMMPS by using bond order potential (BOP). MD simulations are carried out at different temperatures to study the segregation phenomena of Cd, Zn and Te atoms, and deviation of clusters and heat capacity. After that,...
Realization of polarization-angle-independent fishnet-based waveguide metamaterial comprised of octagon shaped resonators with sensor and absorber applications
Sabah, Cumali (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2016-05-01)
A new fishnet-based waveguide metamaterial structure for the microwave region is introduced and investigated both numerically and experimentally. The proposed model is designed and fabricated on both sides of the substrate and exhibits strong metamaterial behavior (such as negative material parameters: i.e. negative permittivity, negative permeability, and negative index of refraction) at the resonance. Only one single slab is used in the simulation and experiment which provides a reduction in the number of...
Phonon dispersions and elastic constants of disordered Pd-Ni alloys
Kart, SO; Tomak, Mehmet; Cagin, T (Elsevier BV, 2005-01-31)
Phonon frequencies of Pd-Ni alloys are calculated by molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. Lattice dynamical properties computed from Sutton-Chen (SC) and quantum Sutton-Chen (Q-SC) potentials as a function of temperature are compared with each other. We present all interatomic force constants up to the 8th nearest-neighbor shell obtained by using the calculated potential. Elastic constants evaluated by two methods are consistent with each other. The transferability of the potential is also tested. The result...
