In this study, the electrical and photoelectrical properties of the Ag-In-Se thin films deposited by the e-beam technique have been investigated by carrying out temperature dependent conductivity, photoconductivity under different illumination intensities and photoresponse measurements between 380 and 1050 nm, as a function of annealing temperature. The measured conductivity values of the films at room temperature depending on the annealing temperatures vary in the range 1.9 x 10(-6)-5.2 Omega(-1) cm(-1). Annealing the films above 200 degrees C results in degenerate thin films. Photoconductivity of the films increases with illumination intensity and its value reaches about 300 times dark conductivity values as the illumination intensity is increased from 17 to 113mW cm(-2) for as-grown samples. The relation between photocurrent and excitation intensity is of I(ph) x phi(n)-type. n values varying in the range of 0.96 and 1.55 imply the supralinear photoconductivity with the two-centre model. The spectral distribution of photoconductivity shows three maxima located at 1.57, 1.77 and 2.01 eV, which was governed by the splitting of p-like levels in the valence band including the effects of a tetragonal crystalline field (Delta(CF)) and spin-orbit (Delta(SO)) interaction. The band gap energies of as-grown and the 200 degrees C annealed films are determined to be 1.57 eV and 1.68 eV, respectively.

Electrical, photo-electrical, optical and structural properties of CdSe thin films deposited by thermal and e-beam techniques
Hus, S. M.; Parlak, Mehmet (IOP Publishing, 2008-02-07)
In this study, electrical, photo-electrical, optical and structural analyses of CdSe thin films deposited by thermal and e-beam evaporation techniques were carried out by measuring temperature dependent conductivity, mobility, photoconductivity under different illumination intensity, photoresponse, transmission and x-ray diffraction. As a result of these measurements, it was observed that the films deposited by the thermal evaporation technique have room temperature conductivity values approximately three o...
Spatial stabilization of Townsend and glow discharges with a semiconducting cathode
Salamov, BG; Ellialtioglu, S; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; Lebedeva, NN; Patriskii, LG (IOP Publishing, 1996-03-14)
The physical processes determining the functions of an ionization system and especially the discharge stabilization by the distributed resistance of a semiconducting cathode in such a system are studied. The current-voltage (I-U) characteristics of the system with a semiconducting GaAs cathode are obtained experimentally as functions of the gap pressure P (16-760 Torr) and inter-electrode distance d (10 mu m to 5 mm), which are varied for the first time over very wide ranges. The experiments showed that the...
Photoelectronic and electrical properties of InS crystals
Qasrawi, AF; Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2002-12-01)
To identify the localized levels in InS single crystals, the dark electrical conductivity, current-voltage characteristics and photoconductivity measurements were carried out in the temperature range of 10-350 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 (10 +/- 2) meV below the conduction band with a density of about 4.8 x 10(11) cm(-3). The conductivity data above 110 K reveal an ...
Perturbation analysis of sheath evolution, with application to plasma source ion implantation
Bektursunova, RM; Demokan, O (IOP Publishing, 2001-02-07)
A perturbation model has been developed to describe the evolution of an expanding plasma sheath around a cathode after a high-voltage negative pulse is applied to the cathode, simulating the conditions in devices such as those used for plasma source ion implantation. The set of governing equations consists of two coupled collisionless fluid equations for ions, and Poisson's equation and Boltzmann's assumption for electrons. The time-dependent, self-consistent expressions for the potential, ion density and i...
Temperature dependence of the polarization and tilt angle under an electric field close to the smectic AC* phase transition in a ferroelectric liquid crystal
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
The temperature dependence of the polarization P and the tilt angle theta is calculated here in the presence of a constant electric field near the smectic AC* phase transition of a ferroelectric liquid crystal using a mean field model. We demonstrate here the temperature dependence of P and theta under some fixed electric fields for the ferroelectric liquid crystal of 4-(3-methyl-2-chlorobutanoyloxy)-4'-heptyloxybiphenyl. Our predicted values of P and theta at various temperatures under fixed electric field...
