TlGaS(2)and TlGaSe(2)ternary semiconducting compounds have been of scientific interest due to their large ultrafast optical nonlinearity characteristics. These remarkable properties make them promising semiconducting materials in photonic applications. A series of (TlGaS2)(x)-(TlGaSe2)(1-x)layered mixed crystals grown by Bridgman method were investigated from the standpoint of their Raman spectroscopy characteristics. Experimental Raman scattering study of crystals were reported in the frequency range of 80-400 cm(-1)for compositions ofx = 0, 0.25, 0.50, 0.75 and 1.0. The effects of crystal disorder on the line-width broadening of Raman-active modes were studied in detail. The asymmetry in the Raman line-shape was analyzed for two highest-frequency intralayer mode presenting two-mode behavior. It was shown that mixed crystal disorder effect is the major source for change of Raman line-shape with composition.


Frequency effect on electrical and dielectric characteristics of HfO2-interlayered Si-based Schottky barrier diode
Gullu, H. H.; Yildiz, D. E.; Surucu, O.; Parlak, Mehmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-06-01)
This study reveals the electrical properties of In/HfO2/n-Si structure with atomic layer-deposited interfacial oxide layer, HfO2 thin film between In top metal contact and monocrystalline Si wafer substrate. From the dark current-voltage measurements, the diode structure showed good rectifying behavior and low saturation current of about two order of magnitude and 1.2 x 10(- 9) A, respectively. According to the conventional thermionic emission model, zero-bias barrier height and ideality factor were calcula...
Energetics and structural properties of carbon and oxygen doped hexagonal boron nitride sheets
Kökten, Hatice (Elsevier BV, 2011-10-01)
Energetics and structural properties of carbon and oxygen doped hexagonal boron nitride sheets have been investigated by performing density functional theory calculations. Substitutional doping model has been considered in the neutral charge state. C and O atoms replaced either B or N site in the system as impurities. A systematic study has been performed to see the effect of cell size on the calculated quantities, such as formation energy, relaxation energy, charge and bond length. It has been found that s...
Nonlinear free vibrations of curved double walled carbon nanotubes using differential quadrature method
Ciğeroğlu, Ender (Elsevier BV, 2014-11-01)
Nonlinear free vibration analysis of curved double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) embedded in an elastic medium is studied in this study. Nonlinearities considered are due to large deflection of carbon nanotubes (geometric nonlinearity) and nonlinear interlayer van der Waals forces between inner and outer tubes. The differential quadrature method (DQM) is utilized to discretize the partial differential equations of motion in spatial domain, which resulted in a nonlinear set of algebraic equations of motion...
Material and Si-based diode analyses of sputtered ZnTe thin films
Güllü, Hasan Hüseyin; Surucu, O. Bayrakli; Isik, M.; Terlemezoglu, M.; Parlak, M. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-07-01)
Structural, optical, and electrical properties ZnTe thin films grown by magnetron sputtering technique were studied by X-ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and electrical conductivity measurements. Structural analyses showed that ZnTe thin films grown on soda-lime glass substrates have a cubic crystalline structure. This crystalline nature of the films was also discussed in terms of Raman active modes. From atomic force microscopy images, the smooth and dense surface profile was o...
CZTSSe thin films fabricated by single step deposition for superstrate solar cell applications
Terlemezoğlu, Makbule; Dogru, C.; Gullu, H. H.; Çiftpınar, Emine Hande; Parlak, Mehmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-06-01)
The focus of this study is the characterization of Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)(4) (CZTSSe) thin films and fabrication of CZTSSe solar cell in superstrate configuration. In this work, superstrate-type configuration of glass/ITO/CdS/CZTSSe/Au was entirely fabricated by totally vacuum-based process. CZTSSe absorber layers were grown by RF magnetron sputtering technique using stacked layer procedure. SnS, CuSe and ZnSe solid targets were used as precursors and no additional step like the selenization process was applied. The...
