The Cu-In-Zn-Se thin film was synthesized by changing the contribution of In in chalcopyrite CuInSe2 with Zn. The XRD spectra of the films showed the characteristic diffraction peaks in a good agreement with the quaternary Cu-In-Zn-Se compound. They were in the polycrystalline nature without any post-thermal process, and the main orientation was found to be in the (112) direction with tetragonal crystalline structure. With increasing annealing temperature, the peak intensities in preferred orientation became more pronounced and grain sizes were in increasing behavior from 6.0 to 25.0 nm. The samples had almost the same atomic composition of Cu0.5In0.5ZnSe2. However, EDS results of the deposited films indicated that there was Se re-evaporation and/or segregation with the annealing in the structure of the film. According to the optical analysis, the transmittance values of the films increased with the annealing temperature. The absorption coefficient of the films was calculated as around 10(5) cm(-1) in the visible region. Moreover, optical band gap values were found to be changing in between 2.12 and 2.28 eV depending on annealing temperature. The temperature-dependent dark-and photo-conductivity measurements were carried out to investigate the electrical characteristics of the films.

Investigation of photovoltaic properties of amorphous InSe thin film based Schottky devices
Yilmaz, K.; Parlak, Mehmet; Ercelebi, C. (IOP Publishing, 2007-12-01)
In this study, device behavior of amorphous InSe thin films was investigated through I-V, C-V and spectral response measurements onto SnO2/p-InSe/metal Schottky diode structures. Various metal contacts such as Ag, Au, Al, In and C were deposited onto amorphous p-InSe films by the thermal evaporation technique. The best rectifying contact was obtained in a SnO2/p-InSe/Ag Schottky structure from I-V measurements, while the Au contact had poor rectification. Other metal contacts (Al, In and C) showed almost oh...

In this study, the material properties of CuO thin films fabricated by sputtering technique and electrical properties of CuO/n-Si structure were reported. Temperature-dependent current-voltage (I-V) measurement was carried out to determine the detail electrical characteristics of this structure. The anomaly in thermionic emission (TE) model related to barrier height inhomogeneity at the interface was obtained from the forward bias I-V analysis. The current transport mechanism at the junction was determined ...
Characteristics of HfO2 and SiO2 on p-type silicon wafers using terahertz spectroscopy
Altan, Hakan; Pham, D.; Grebel, H.; Federici, J. F. (IOP Publishing, 2007-05-01)
The effect of high-kappa dielectric HfO2 films on 200 mm diameter p-type silicon substrates was investigated and compared with conventional dielectric material, SiO2. We employed all-optical characterization methods using terahertz (THz) time-domain spectroscopy and visible cw pump/THz probe spectroscopy. Measurements were performed on two sets of samples, each set containing both HfO2 and SiO2 coated wafers with varying thickness of oxide layer. One set had a protective coating of either photoresist or Si3...

A new polythiophene derivative was synthesized by both chemical and electrochemical oxidative polymerization of 1-(perfluorophenyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (FPTPy). The structures of both the monomer and the soluble polymer were elucidated by nuclear magnetic resonance (H-1-NMR) and fourier transform infrared (FTIR). Polymer of FPTPy was also synthesized via potentiostatic electrochemical polymerization in acetonitrile (AN)/NaClO4/LiClO4 (0.1 M:0.1 M) Solvent-electrolyte couple. Characterizations of th...
