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 analyses of transmittance spectra were accomplished by two different methods called as the absorption coefficient and the derivative spectrophotometry analyses. All evaluated band gap energy values at each studied temperature were in good agreement with each other depending on the applied analyses techniques. Room temperature gap energy values were found around 2.39 eV and 2.40 eV from absorption coefficient and derivative spectrophotometry analyses, respectively. Band gap energy depending on the sample temperature was studied under the light of two different models to investigate average phonon energy, electron phonon coupling parameter and the rate of change of band gap energy with temperature.

QASRAWI, ATEF FAYEZ HASAN; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2009-10-01)
The structure, the anisotropy effect on the current transport mechanism and the space charge limited current in Tl4Se3S chain crystals have been studied by means of X-ray diffraction, electrical conductivity measurements along and perpendicular to the crystal's c-axis and the current voltage characteristics. The temperature-dependent electrical conductivity analysis in the region of 150-400 K, revealed the domination of the thermionic emission of charge carriers over the chain boundaries above 210 and 270 K...

The effect of Mn-doping on the vacuum deposited CdS thin films has been investigated by studying the changes in the structural, optical and magnetic properties of the films. A thin Mn layer evaporated on the CdS film surface served as the source layer for the diffusion doping. Doping was accomplished by annealing the CdS/Mn stack layers at the temperature range from 300 degrees C to 400 degrees C in step of 50 degrees C for 30 min under vacuum. The X-ray diffraction results showed that the undoped CdS film ...

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 diffract...

İmer, Muhsine Bilge; Rajan, Siddharth; Keller, Stacia; Mishra, Umesh K.; Nakamura, Shuji; Speck, James S.; DenBaars, Steven P. (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2008-02-01)
We studied the effect of extended defects on electrical characteristics of Si doped n-type nonpolar a-plane GaN films. The n-type GaN layers were grown on co-loaded reduced defect density sidewall lateral epitaxial overgrowth (SLEO) a-plane GaN templates and high defect density planar a-plane GaN templates by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). The highest conductivity value was observed at the carrier concentration of 1.05 x 10(19) cm(-3) as 261.12 cm(2)/Vs for SLEO a-GaN and 106.77 cm(2)/Vs fo...

In this study, effect of temperature in the electrical resistance heating process on mechanical properties and microstructures of commercially pure titanium grade 2 (CP2) and Ti-6Al-4V (T64) alloy sheets was investigated. Sheets were successfully heated by the electric resistance heating process, and their mechanical properties and microstructures were evaluated. Ductilities of both materials were increased significantly after 400 degrees C. Results indicate that no significant change was observed in grain ...
