Structural and optical properties of SnS2xSe(2-2x) thin films grown by magnetron sputtering method were investigated for composition of x = 0.5 (SnSSe) in the present study. X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy methods were used for structural characterization while temperature-dependent transmission measurements carried out at various temperatures in between 10 and 300 K were accomplished for optical investigations. X-ray diffraction pattern of studied composition presented peaks at positions which are between those of SnSe2 and SnS2. Transmittance spectra recorded at all applied temperatures were analyzed using well-known Tauc relation. Analyses revealed the direct band gap energy value of SnSSe thin films as 1.75 eV at room temperature. Change of band gap energy as a response to varying temperature were discussed in the study by utilizing Varshni relation. It was shown that variation of gap energy values was well-matched with the Varshni's empirical formula. Energy band gap at absolute zero and rate of change of band gap with temperature were found to be 1.783 eV and -2.1 x 10(-4) eV K-1, respectively.


Structural and temperature-dependent optical properties of thermally evaporated CdS thin films
IŞIK, MEHMET; Gullu, H. H.; Delice, S.; Parlak, Mehmet; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2019-04-01)
In this work, structural and temperature dependent optical properties of thermally evaporated CdS thin films were investigated. X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy experiments were carried out to characterize the thin films and obtain information about the crystal structure, atomic composition, surface morphology and vibrational modes. Temperature-dependent transmission measurements were performed in between 10 and 300 K and in the spectral range of 400-1050 nm. The anal...
Hydrothermal BaTiO3 thin films from nanostructured Ti templates
Akyildiz, Hasan; Casper, Michelle D.; Ayguen, Seymen M.; Lam, Peter G.; Maria, Jon P. (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2011-02-01)
Polycrystalline BaTiO3 thin films have been prepared by hydrothermal reaction with sputter-deposited nanostructured reactive Ti templates designed to control net diffusion direction and distance. Templates were prepared in two morphologies, i.e., planar and nanopillar. The samples produced from flat templates showed sluggish transformation kinetics and an eventual termination of reaction without fully consuming the Ti metal. Templates with pillar morphology, on the other hand, could be transformed to phase-...
Thermally stimulated currents in n-InS single crystals
Hasanlı, Nızamı; Yuksek, NS (Elsevier BV, 2003-03-24)
Thermally stimulated current measurements are carried out on as-grown n-InS single crystals in the temperature range of 10-125 K. Experimental evidence is found for four trapping centers present in InS. They are located at 20, 35, 60 and 130 meV. The trap parameters have been determined by various methods of analysis, and they agree well with each other.
Mechanical behaviour of Al2O3-ZrO2 minicomposite reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Informa UK Limited, 2003-08-01)
To understand the effect of a 'mesh-structured reinforcement' on the optical and mechanical properties of optomechanical composites, a unidirectional Al2O3 fibre-ZrO2 matrix minicomposite reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite has been fabricated. By regular alignment of the minicomposites in the glass matrix as part of the 'mesh structure' a high degree of optical transparency is obtained in the composite; this transparency is proportional to its 'optical window' regions. The mesh structured rein...
Microstructural and texture evolution during thermo-hydrogen processing of Ti6Al4V alloys produced by electron beam melting

The present study was conducted to reveal the effects of building angles and post heat-treatments (2-step Thermo-Hydrogen Processing (THP) and conventional annealing treatment) on the density, microstructure and texture of Ti6Al4V alloy parts produced by Electron Beam Melting (EBM). The results showed that regardless of the building angle; the density, microstructure and crystallographic texture (defined with respect to building angle) of the as-produced samples were identical; having Widmanstatten a struct...
