The influence of calcium co-doping on the optical properties of the x-ray storage phosphor BaFBr: Eu2+, is determined by photo- stimulated luminescence techniques. It is found that the incorporation of calcium into the lattice results in a broadening of the photo- stimulation peak due to a calcium induced FA(Br, Ca2+)-centre with stimulation maxima at 540 and 680 nm. The optical cross-sections for the photo- stimulated process are determined by utilizing stimulation light with linearly increasing intensity. Furthermore, it is shown that the sensitivity for x-rays, i.e. the number of storage centres formed during x-ray exposure, increases up to a doping level of 1 mol% while it drops rapidly at higher calcium concentrations.

Refractive index, static dielectric constant, energy band gap and oscillator parameters of Ga2SeS single crystals
Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Wiley, 2007-09-01)
The optical properties of Bridgman method grown Ga2SeS crystals have been investigated by means of room-temperature transmittance and reflectance spectral analysis. The optical data have revealed direct and indirect allowed transition band gaps of 2.49 and 2.10 eV, respectively. The room-temperature refractive index, which was calculated from the reflectance and transmittance data, allowed the identification of the dispersion and oscillator energies, static dielectric constant and static refractive index as...
Excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties of small quantum dots
KARABULUT, İBRAHİM; Safak, H.; Tomak, Mehmet (IOP Publishing, 2008-08-07)
The excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties of small quantum dots with a semiparabolic confining potential are studied under the density matrix formalism. First, within the framework of the strong confinement approximation, we present the excitonic states and then calculate the excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties, such as second harmonic generation, third harmonic generation, nonlinear absorption coefficient and refractive index changes. We find the explicit analytical expres...
Electrical, photo-electrical, optical and structural properties of CdSe thin films deposited by thermal and e-beam techniques
Hus, S. M.; Parlak, Mehmet (IOP Publishing, 2008-02-07)
In this study, electrical, photo-electrical, optical and structural analyses of CdSe thin films deposited by thermal and e-beam evaporation techniques were carried out by measuring temperature dependent conductivity, mobility, photoconductivity under different illumination intensity, photoresponse, transmission and x-ray diffraction. As a result of these measurements, it was observed that the films deposited by the thermal evaporation technique have room temperature conductivity values approximately three o...
Assessment of InSb photodetectors on Si substrates
Ozer, S; Beşikci, Cengiz (IOP Publishing, 2003-03-07)
We present the detailed characteristics of small area (33 x 33 mum(2)) InSb photodiodes grown on GaAs coated Si substrates by molecular beam epitaxy. In spite of very large lattice mismatch, 80 K peak detectivity of similar to1 x 10(10) cm Hz(1/2) W-1 has been measured under backside illumination without anti-reflection coating. Differential resistance at 80 K is limited by Ohmic leakage under small reverse bias and trap assisted tunnelling (TAT) under moderately large reverse bias. In the temperature range...
Hydrodynamic approach for modelling transport in quantum well device structures
Beşikci, Cengiz; Sen, O (IOP Publishing, 1998-09-07)
A semiclassical approach for modelling electron transport in quantum well structures is presented. The model is based on the balance equations governing the conservation of particle density, momentum and energy with Monte Carlo (MC) generated transport parameters. Three valleys of the conduction band, size quantization in the Gamma valley, and the lowest two subbands in the quantum well are considered by taking the detailed intersubband dynamics into account. The transport parameters of the model are extrac...
