Temperature-tuned band gap properties of MoS2 thin films

MoS2 is one of the fascinating members of transition metal dichalcogenides and has attracted great attention due to its various optoelectronic device applications and its characteristic as two-dimensional material. The present paper reports the structural and temperature tuned optical properties of MoS2 thin films grown by RF magnetron sputtering technique. It was observed that the atomic composition ratio of Mo:S was nearly equal to 1:2 and the deposited thin films have hexagonal crystalline structure exhibiting Raman peaks around 376 and 410 cm(-1). The band gap energies were determined as 1.66 and 1.71 eV at 300 and 10 K, respectively and temperature dependency of band gap energy was analyzed by means of Varshni and O'Donnell-Chen models.

Temperature-tuned band gap characteristics of InSe layered semiconductor single crystals
Isik, M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2020-03-01)
Layered structured InSe has attracted remarkable attention due to its effective characteristics utilized especially in optoelectronic device technology. This point directs researchers to investigate optical properties of InSe in great detail. The temperature dependent band gap characteristics of InSe and analyses performed on this dependency have been rarely studied in literature. Here, temperature-dependent transmission and room temperature reflection experiments were performed on InSe layered single cryst...
Surfactant-modified multiscale composites for improved tensile fatigue and impact damage sensing
Yesil, Sertan; Winkelrnann, Charles; Bayram, Göknur; La Saponara, Valeria (Elsevier BV, 2010-10-25)
This paper documents the mechanical and electrical performance of self-sensing conductive polymer composites prepared with a low-cost technique and small hardware, able to considerably improve the dispersion and the surface adhesion of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in epoxy resin with respect to amine-modified CNTs and as-received CNTs. Surface treatment of the CNTs is performed using hexamethylene diamine, or a mix of sulfuric and nitric acid, and one of two surfactants (for the diamine treatment on...
Titanium-magnesium based composites: Mechanical properties and in-vitro corrosion response in Ringer's solution
ESEN, ZİYA; Dikici, Burak; Duygulu, Ozgur; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Elsevier BV, 2013-06-20)
Ti-Mg composite rods exhibiting both bioinert and biodegradable characteristics have been manufactured by hot rotary swaging from elemental powders of titanium and magnesium. As a result of processing, spherical magnesium powders elongated in the direction of deformation and the dendritic structure in starting magnesium powders transformed into highly equiaxed grains. Magnesium particles in the outer layer of the composites were decorated by thin layer of MgO while the interior parts were free from oxides. ...
Nanowires assembled from iron manganite nanoparticles: Synthesis, characterization, and investigation of electrocatalytic properties for water oxidation reaction
Çetin, Asude; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Nalbant Esentürk, Emren (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2019-09-30)
The development of stable and effective earth-abundant metal oxide electrocatalysts is very crucial to improve competence of water electrolysis. In this study, iron manganite (FeMnO3) nanomaterials were synthesized as an affordable electrocatalyst for water oxidation reactions. The structural and chemical properties of FeMnO3 nanomaterials were studied by transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, energydispersive X-ray, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, inductively c...
Mechanical behaviour of Al2O3-ZrO2 minicomposite reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Informa UK Limited, 2003-08-01)
To understand the effect of a 'mesh-structured reinforcement' on the optical and mechanical properties of optomechanical composites, a unidirectional Al2O3 fibre-ZrO2 matrix minicomposite reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite has been fabricated. By regular alignment of the minicomposites in the glass matrix as part of the 'mesh structure' a high degree of optical transparency is obtained in the composite; this transparency is proportional to its 'optical window' regions. The mesh structured rein...
