The band cap bowings of InNxAs1-x, InNxSb1-x, and InAsxSb1-x alloys defined by the optimized lattice constants are investigated using empirical tight binding (ETB) method. The present ETB energy parameters which take the nearest neighbor interactions into account with sp(3)d(2) basis are determined to be sufficient to provide a typical feature for the band gap bowings of the alloys. The band gap bowing parameter is found to be relatively large in both InNxAs1-x and InNxSb1-x compared to InAsxSb1-x alloys. Moreover, the variation of the fundamental band gaps of InNxSb1-x alloys is sharper than that of InNxAs1-x alloys for small concentrations of N. Besides, a small amount of nitrogen is determined to be more effective in InNxSb1-x than in InNxAs1-x alloys to decrease the corresponding effective masses of the electrons around Gamma points.

The structural and electronic properties of BN and BP compounds and BNxP1-x alloys
Mohammad, Rezek; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (Elsevier BV, 2009-06-10)
The structural and electronic properties of BN and BP compounds and BNxP1-x alloys have been investigated by full potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method based on density functional theory (DFT). The total energies and electronic band structures of these compounds have been calculated for different approximations of exchange-correlation energy. The comparative study has showed that the Perdew-Wang-generalized gradient approximation (PW-GGA) is the best one to produce the measured structur...

In the present study, the structural, electronic, magnetic, anisotropic elastic and lattice dynamic properties of the ternary metal borides (, and ) known as MAB phases have been investigated by density functional theory. The obtained results from the structural optimizations show that all these compounds have negative formation enthalpy implying the thermodynamic stability and synthesizability. The spin effects on the phases have been studied with the plotted energy-volume curves for different magnetic pha...

Finding optimal Fe/Ba ratio to obtain single phase BaFe12O19 prepared by ammonium nitrate melt technique
Topal, Ugur; Ozkan, Husnu; Dorosinskii, Lev (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-31)
In the present work, the magnetic properties and the phase composition of barium ferrite BaFe12O19 powders prepared by the ammonium nitrate melt technique with Fe/Ba ratios varying from 2 to 13 was investigated. We observed that BaFe2O4 phase is formed at low values of Fe/Ba ratios (2-6) and alpha-Fe2O3 phase is formed at high values of Fe/Ba ratio as secondary phases. BaFe2O4 phase could be easily eliminated from the structure by washing the annealed powders with diluted HCI.HCI-washing is not effective fo...
THE POWER SPECTRUM ASSOCIATED WITH A KINK CHAIN OSCILLATING IN A NON-STOKESIAN ATMOSPHERE OF PARAELASTIC INTERSTITIALS
OGURTANI, T; GUNGOR, R (Elsevier BV, 1994-09-01)
The power spectrum of a built-in kink chain oscillating in an atmosphere of paraelastic interstitials was investigated numerically using a fast Fourier transform technique. Above a sharply defined value of the strain amplitude, odd-harmonic generation is observed only at the low-temperature side of the dislocation relaxation peak associated with interstitial-kink interaction. At moderately high strain amplitudes, a strong enhancement of the harmonics situated in the immediate vicinity of the natural resonan...
