Temperature-dependent transmission experiments were performed for tin selenide (SnSe) thin films deposited by rf magnetron sputtering method in between 10 and 300 K and in the wavelength region of 400-1000 nm. Transmission spectra exhibited sharp decrease near the absorption edge around 900 nm. The transmittance spectra were analyzed using Tauc relation and first derivative spectroscopy techniques to get band gap energy of the SnSe thin films. Both of the applied methods resulted in existence of two band gaps with energies around 1.34 and 1.56 eV. The origin of these band gaps was investigated and it was assigned to the splitting of valence band into two bands due to spin-orbit interaction. Alteration of these band gap values due to varying sample temperature of the thin films were also explored in the study. It was seen that the gap energy values increased almost linearly with decreasing temperature as expected according to theoretical knowledge.

Temperature-tuned band gap energy and oscillator parameters of Tl2InGaSe4 semiconducting layered single crystals
Hasanlı, Nızamı (Wiley, 2009-03-01)
The optical properties of Tl2InGaSe4 layered single crystals have been studied through the transmission and reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 500-1100 nm. The analysis of room temperature absorption data revealed the presence of both optical indirect and direct transitions with band gap energies of 1.86 and 2.05 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 = -4...

Golksen, K.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Wiley, 2008-05-01)
Photoluminescence spectra of Tl4GaIn3S8 layered crystals grown by Bridgman method have been studied in the wavelength region of 500-780 nm and in the temperature range of 26-130 K with extrinsic excitation source (lambda(exc) = 532 nm), and at T = 26 K with intrinsic excitation source (lambda(exc) = 406 nm). Three emission bands A, B and C centered at 514 nm (2.41 eV), 588 nm (2.11 eV) and 686 nm (1.81 eV), respectively, were observed for extrinsic excitation process. Variations in emission spectra have bee...

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.
Temperature dependence of magnetic and thermal properties of chiral HyFe and HyMn close to phase transitions by using the Landau mean field model
Tari, Ozlem; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Elsevier BV, 2019-04-15)
Magnetic and thermal properties of chiral metal formate frameworks (MOFs) of NH2NH3M(HCOO)(3), M = Fe, Mn, namely, HyFe and HyMn are investigated close to phase transitions by using Landau phenomenological model. By expanding the free energy in terms of the order parameter, for magnetic properties the temperature dependence of magnetization and inverse magnetic susceptibility, and for thermal properties the heat capacity and entropy are calculated for chiral HyFe and HyMn close to phase transitions using th...

KARABULUT, ORHAN; Parlak, Mehmet; Yılmaz, Koray Kamil; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Wiley, 2005-03-01)
The conductivity, mobility, photoconductivity and photo response measurements in GaS0.75Se0.25 mixed crystals were carried out in the temperature range of 150-450 K. The room temperature conductivity, mobility and electron concentration values were 10(-9) (Omega-cm)(-1), 48 cm(2)V(-1) s(-1) and similar to 10(9) cm(-3), respectively. Two donor levels were obtained from temperature-dependent conductivity and carrier concentration, located at energies of about 755 and 465 meV below the conduction band. Single ...
