Structural investigation of monolayers prepared by deposition of (CH3S)(2) on the (111) face of single-crystal gold

Although self-assembled monolayers made of long chains of n-alkanethiols [CH3(CH2)(n-1)SH] on Au(111) have been extensively studied in the past, the driving forces behind the appearance of the (3 x 2root3) superlattice observed at full coverage are still not completely understood. To focus on the role played by the sulfur headgroup minimizing the interactions between chains and to prevent a possible X-ray-induced damage, we have carried out a He atom diffraction study of the adsorption of the shortest (n = 1) thiol radical, obtained by dissociative adsorption of (CH3S)(2), on the Au(111) surface. Contrary to current literature reports, domains of the hexagonal (root3 x root3)R30degrees structure are observed to convert into the well-ordered (3 x 2root3) superstructure after annealing times of a few hours. The observation of peaks forbidden by the (3 x 2root3) model proposed by Fenter et al. (Fenter, P.; Eberhardt, A.; Eisenberger, P. Science 1994, 266, 1216) suggests a distortion of the symmetry, of the unit cell. The observed chemisorption and physisorption energies were in good agreement with the literature.


Vibration Analysis of a Cracked Beam on an Elastic Foundation
Batihan, Ali Cagri; Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat (2016-06-01)
The transverse vibrations of cracked beams with rectangular cross sections resting on Pasternak and generalized elastic foundations are considered. Both the Euler-Bernoulli (EB) and Timoshenko beam (TB) theories are used. The open edge crack is represented as a rotational spring whose compliance is obtained by the fracture mechanics. By applying the compatibility conditions between the beam segments at the crack location and the boundary conditions, the characteristic equations are derived, from which the n...
Structural properties of a-Si films and their effect on aluminum induced crystallization
Tankut, Aydin; Karaman, Mehmet; Ozkol, Engin; Canlı, Sedat; Turan, Raşit (2015-10-01)
In this paper, we report the influence of the structural properties of amorphous silicon (a-Si) on its subsequent crystallization behavior via the aluminum induced crystallization (AIC) method. Two distinct a-Si deposition techniques, electron beam evaporation and plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD), are compared for their effect on the overall AIC kinetics as well as the properties of the final poly-crystalline (poly-Si) silicon film. Raman and FTIR spectroscopy results indicate that the PECV...
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 ...
Mathematical modeling of horizontal two-phase flow through fully eccentric annuli
Ömürlü, Çiğdem; Özbayoğlu, Evren; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2006)
The primary objective of this study is to understand the mechanism, the hydraulics and the characteristics, of the two-phase flow in horizontal annuli. While achieving this goal, both theoretical and experimental works have been conducted extensively. The METU-PETE-CTMFL (Middle East Technical University, Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering Department, Cuttings Transport and Multiphase Flow Laboratory) multiphase flow loop consists of 4.84 m long eccentric horizontal acrylic pipes having 0.1143m inner dia...
Convergence, stability, and numerical solution of unsteady free convection magnetohydrodynamical flow between two slipping plates
Arslan, Sinem (2021-09-01)
In this study, the unsteady free convection magnetohydrodynamical flow of a viscous, incompressible, and electrically conducting fluid between two horizontally directed slipping plates is considered. The external magnetic filed is applied uniformly in the y-direction and the fluid is assumed to be of low conductivity so that the induced magnetic field is negligible. So the relevant variables, that is, the velocity and the temperature, depend only on one coordinate, the y-axis. The governing equations of vel...
