In this study, Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)(4) (CZTSSe) thin films were deposited by the single step thermal evaporation process using the sintered powder of CZTSSe on soda lime glass (SLG) and Si wafer substrates. The structural, optical, and electrical properties of deposited films were investigated. Current-voltage (I-V) in the temperature range of 250-350 K, capacitance-voltage(C-V) and conductance-voltage (G/w-V) measurements at room temperature were carried out to determine electrical properties of CZTSSe/n-Si structure. The forward bias I-V analysis based on thermionic emission (TE) showed barrier height inhomogeneity at the interface and thus, the conduction mechanism was modeled under the assumption of Gaussian distribution of barrier height. The mean barrier height and standard deviation at zero bias were obtained as 1.27 eV and 0.18 V, respectively. Moreover, Richardson constant was obtained as 120.46 A cm(-2) K-2 via modified Richardson plot and the density of interface states (D-it) profile was determined using the data obtained from forward bias I-V measurements. In addition, by the results of frequency dependent C-V measurements, characteristics of the interface state density were calculated applying high-low frequency capacitance (C-HF - C-LF) and Hill-Coleman methods.

In this study, nanostructured Mn3O4 (manganese oxide) thin films were successfully obtained by successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) method on the soda lime glass substrates using Manganese Nitrate (Mn(NO3)(2)) and Ammonium hydroxide (NH4(OH)) as cationic and anionic precursors respectively. Structural and morphological characterizations of the Mn3O4 films obtained at different cycles were determined using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The crystal structure...
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...
Deposition of AgGaS2 thin films by double source thermal evaporation technique
KARAAĞAÇ, HAKAN; Parlak, Mehmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-09-01)
In this study, polycrystalline AgGaS2 thin films were deposited by the sequential evaporation of AgGaS2 and Ag sources with thermal evaporation technique. Thermal treatment in nitrogen atmosphere for 5 min up to 700 A degrees C was applied to the deposited thin films and that resulted in the mono phase AgGaS2 thin films without the participation of any other minor phase. Structural and compositional analyses showed the structure of the films completely changes with annealing process. The measurements of tra...
Carbon content influence on the optical constants of hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbon alloys
Akaoglu, B.; Sel, K.; Atilgan, I.; Katircioglu, B. (Elsevier BV, 2008-04-01)
Hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbon alloys (a-Si1-xCx:H) with different carbon contents are deposited by a plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) system with different hydrogen diluted ethylene (C2H4) concentrations at two power densities of 30 and 90 mW/cm(2). First, the carbon and hydrogen configurations and their relative concentrations in these films are investigated in details by IR spectroscopy. Then, the ultraviolet/visible transmittance spectroscopy and a relevant characterization softw...
PVD growth and characterization of YBCO thin films on polycrystalline alumina substrates: phase separation
Ozenbas, MA; Gungoren, T (Elsevier BV, 2000-11-01)
In this study, high T-c superconducting thin films of Y-Ba-Cu-O system have been prepared onto polycrystalline alpha -Al2O3 substrates by resistive evaporation of YF3, BaF2, and Cu powders and a subsequent multi-stage annealing. In the deposition process, two different methods were used: mixed-powder method and sequential-deposition method. The best quality films were achieved on alpha -Al2O3 substrates by using sequential-deposition technique with offset critical transition temperature of 80.6 K. Sequentia...
