Anisotropic space charge limited current density analysis and photovoltaic effect in TlGaTe2 single crystals has been investigated. It is shown that, above 330 K, the crystal exhibits intrinsic and extrinsic type of conductivity along (c-axis) and perpendicular (a-axis) to the crystal's axis, respectively. The current density (J) is found to be space charge limited. It is proportional to the square and three halves power of voltage (V) along the a- and c-axis, respectively. Along the a-axis and at sufficiently low electric field values, the activation energy of the current density is found to depend on the one half power of electric field. At high electric fields, the activation energy is field invariant. This behavior is found to be due to the Pool Frenkel effect and due to a trap set located at 0.26 eV, respectively. Along the c-axis the crystal is observed to operate under the Child Langmuir space charge limited regime. TlGaTe2 crystals are found to exhibit photovoltaic properties. The open circuit photovoltage is recorded as a function of illumination intensity at room temperature.


Properties of Neon, Magnesium, and Silicon Primary Cosmic Rays Results from the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer
Aguilar, M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2020-05-29)
We report the observation of new properties of primary cosmic rays, neon (Ne), magnesium (Mg), and silicon (Si), measured in the rigidity range 2.15 GV to 3.0 TV with 1.8 x 10(6) Ne, 2.2 x 10(6) Mg, and 1.6 x 10(6) Si nuclei collected by the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer experiment on the International Space Station. The Ne and Mg spectra have identical rigidity dependence above 3.65 GV. The three spectra have identical rigidity dependence above 86.5 GV, deviate from a single power law above 200 GV, and harde...
Optical properties of TlGa(SxSe1-x) 2 layered mixed crystals (0=x=1): Absorption edge and photoluminescence study at T=10 K
Hasanlı, Nızamı (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-09-01)
Transmittance measurements of layered mixed crystals were performed in the 1.80-2.80 eV photon energy range at . Band-gap energies of the studied crystals were estimated by means of the derivative spectra of transmittance and photon energy dependence of absorption coefficient. The compositional dependence of direct band-gap energy at revealed that as sulphur (selenium) composition is increased (decreased) in the mixed crystals, the direct band-gap energy increases from 2.19 eV () to 2.67 eV (). Photolumines...
Antiproton Flux, Antiproton-to-Proton Flux Ratio, and Properties of Elementary Particle Fluxes in Primary Cosmic Rays Measured with the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station
Aguilar, M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2016-08-26)
A precision measurement by AMS of the antiproton flux and the antiproton-to-proton flux ratio in primary cosmic rays in the absolute rigidity range from 1 to 450 GV is presented based on 3.49 x 10(5) antiproton events and 2.42 x 10(9) proton events. The fluxes and flux ratios of charged elementary particles in cosmic rays are also presented. In the absolute rigidity range similar to 60 to similar to 500 GV, the antiproton (p) over bar, proton p, and positron e(+) fluxes are found to have nearly identical ri...
Spectroscopic study and numerical simulation of low-pressure radio-frequency capacitive discharge with argon downstream
Tanisli, Murat; Rafatov, İsmail; Sahin, Neslihan; Mertadam, Sercan; Demir, Suleyman (Canadian Science Publishing, 2017-02-01)
In this study, the characteristic properties and plasma parameters of capacitive radio frequency (RF) argon (Ar) discharge and supplementary discharge at low pressure are investigated with optical emission spectroscopy (OES). The wavelengths of spectral lines from OES are obtained between 650-900 nm. Using OES lines and related experimental data, the electron temperatures for different RF power, flow, and measurement periods are determined. Eventually, the properties of plasma including the electron tempera...
Towards Understanding the Origin of Cosmic-Ray Electrons
Aguilar, M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2019-03-13)
Precision results on cosmic-ray electrons are presented in the energy range from 0.5 GeV to 1.4 TeV based on 28.1 x 10(6) electrons collected by the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station. In the entire energy range the electron and positron spectra have distinctly different magnitudes and energy dependences. The electron flux exhibits a significant excess starting from 42.1(-5.2)(+5.4) GeV compared to the lower energy trends, but the nature of this excess is different from the posit...
