Characteristics of electron traps in Si-doped Ga0.51In0.49P and electrical properties of modulation doped GaInP/InGaAs/GaAs heterostructures

In order to investigate the feasibility of Si-doped Ga0.51In0.49P for modulation-doped field effect transistor applications, single Ga0.51In0.49P llayers and Ga0.51In0.49P/InxGa1-xAs/GaAs (x = 0, 0.15 and 0.25) modulation doped heterostructures grown by gas source molecular beam epitaxy were characterized through deep level transient spectroscopy and Hall-effect measurements. Electrical characterization of the undoped and moderately Si-doped (N-D = 3 x 10(17) cm(-3)) GaInP layers yielded an electron trap with an activation energy of 0.75 eV and a temperature dependent capture cross section with a capture barrier of 0.593 eV. The density of this trap increased, and an anomalous decrease in the free carrier concentration of GaInP was observed after the samples were annealed at temperatures typically used in device processing. While, this trap showed characteristics similar to DX centers, it was not detected in highly Si doped (N-D approximate to 4 x 10(18) cm(-3)) as grown layers suggesting that the trap is a defect complex including a residual impurity. While very high two-dimensional electron gas density (2.6 x 10(12) cm(-2) at 30 K) was achieved in the lattice matched (x = 0) structures, the strained structures were found to be very sensitive to heat treatment, although the InGaAs layers thicknesses were below the theoretical critical thickness. Persistent photoconductivity and a significant reduction in the interface sheet electron density were observed after annealing. The anomalous behavior can be attributed to the decrease in the carrier concentration of the doped GaInP barrier layer and to the strain relaxation at the hetero-interface after annealing. While other explanations may be possible, the decrease in the GaInP electron concentration can be attributed to Si atoms moving from donor to acceptor sites. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science S.A.

Performance of banded SLW-1 in presence of non-gray walls and particles in fluidized bed combustors
Yaşar, Mehmet Soner; Selçuk, Nevin; Külah, Görkem (Elsevier BV, 2020-12-01)
In this study, banded one gas spectral line-based weighted sum of gray gases (banded SLW-1) model is coupled with a 3-D radiation code based on method of lines (MOL) solution of discrete ordinates method (DOM) for freeboard of METU 0.3 MWt atmospheric bubbling fluidized bed combustion (ABFBC) test rig containing non-gray gas, non-gray particle mixture bounded by non-gray walls. Spectral parameters of banded SLW-1 are estimated by the approach based on two emissivities calculated at two different path length...
Analysis of vibrational spectra in relation to the thermodynamic quantities close to the phase transitions in ammonium halides (NH4F and NH4I)
Tari, O.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2017-01-01)
The pressure dependences of the vibrational frequencies of the TO and L modes are analyzed from the literature data and the thermodynamic quantities such as isothermal compressibility K gamma, thermal expansion alpha p and the specific heat C-p - C-v are calculated through the mode Grilneisen parameters of those modes in ammonium halides (NH4F and NH4I). For this calculation, the observed frequencies of the TO mode (238 cm(-1) at 1 bar) and the L mode (74.7 meV at 1.9 GPa) are used for the phases of I, II a...

Temoçin, Engin Ufuk; Akın, Tayfun; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
This thesis presents the design and fabrication of coplanar waveguide to microstrip transitions and planar spiral inductors, and the design of metal-insulator-metal capacitors, a planar band-pass, and a low-pass filter structures as an application for the inductors and capacitors using the RF MEMS technology. This thesis also includes a packaging method for RF MEMS devices with the use of “benzocyclobutene” as bonding material. The transition structures are formed by four different methods between coplanar ...

Predictive accuracy and computationally efficiency of method of lines (MOL) solution of the discrete ordinate method (DOM) coupled with different radiative property estimation techniques (GG, SLW, SNBCK) are assessed by applying them to the prediction of incident radiative fluxes along the freeboard walls of a 0.3 MWt atmospheric bubbling fluidized bed combustor (ABFBC) and comparing their predictions with measurements generated previously from two runs one without and the other with recycle. Freeboard is t...
Frequency Dependent Dielectric Properties of ZnSe/p-Si Diode
Güllü, Hasan Hüseyin; YILDIZ, DİLBER ESRA (2019-03-01)
The study on electrical and dielectric properties of the ZnSe/p-Si diode have been investigated using admittance measurements in the frequency range of 50 kHz - 1 MHz at room temperature. The experimental values of dielectric constant and dielectric loss are found in decreasing behavior with increase in frequency due to the characteristics of the interface capacitance in the diode and so that the similar behavior was observed in loss tangent. With the contribution of the series resistance, the results of th...
