Zn-In-Se thin films were fabricated on the ultrasonically cleaned glass substrates masked with clover-shaped geometry by thermal evaporation of its elemental sources. Temperature-dependent conductivity characteristics of the films were investigated under dark and illuminated conditions. The semiconductor type of the films was found as n-type by thermal probe test. According to the van der Pauw technique, the dark electrical conductivity analyses showed that the variations of conductivity of unannealed and annealed at 300 degrees C samples are in exponential dependence of temperature. These conductivity profiles were found to be dominated by the thermionic emission at high temperature region whereas their behaviors at low temperatures were modeled by hopping theory. On the contrary, as a result of the further annealing temperatures, the surface of the samples showed semi-metallic characteristics with deviating from expected Arrhenius behavior. In addition, the temperature-dependent photoconductivity of the films was analyzed under different illumination intensities and the results were explained by the supra-linear characteristic based on the two-center recombination model.

Bayrakli, O.; Gullu, H. H.; Parlak, Mehmet (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2018-07-01)
This work indicates the device properties of polycrystalline p-AgGaInTe2 (AGIT) thin films deposited on bare and ITO-coated glass substrates with thermal evaporation technique. Device characteristics of n-CdS/p-AGIT heterostructure have been analyzed in terms of current-voltage (I-V) for different temperatures and capacitance-voltage (C-V) measurements for different frequencies, respectively. The series and shunt resistances were determined from the analysis of parasitic resistance for high forward and reve...
Effects of gold-induced crystallization process on the structural and electrical properties of germanium thin films
Kabacelik, Ismail; Kulakci, Mustafa; Turan, Raşit; ÜNAL, NURİ (Wiley, 2018-07-01)
Gold-induced (Au-) crystallization of amorphous germanium (-Ge) thin films was investigated by depositing Ge on aluminum-doped zinc oxide and glass substrates through electron beam evaporation at room temperature. The influence of the postannealing temperatures on the structural properties of the Ge thin films was investigated by employing Raman spectra, X-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy. The Raman and X-ray diffraction results indicated that the Au-induced crystallization of the Ge films ...

The effects of different laser treatments on some mechanical properties of acrylic resin and soft liner were investigated. A total of 60 test specimens were fabricated according to test requirements. The specimens were roughened with Potassium-ticanyl-Phosphate (KTP), Er:YAG, and Nd:YAG lasers before application of soft liner. The flexural, peel, and tensile bond strengths were measured using a universal testing machine. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy with attenuated total reflectance (FTIR-ATR) sp...

The n-type doped silicon thin films were deposited by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) technique at high and low H-2 dilutions. High H-2 dilution resulted in n(+) nanocrystalline silicon films (n(+) nc-Si:H) with the lower resistivity (rho similar to 0.7 Omega cm) compared to that of doped amorphous silicon films (similar to 900 0 cm) grown at low H-2 dilution. The change of the lateral rho of n(+) nc-Si:H films was measured by reducing the film thickness via gradual reactive ion etching. T...
Effect of oxygen flow rate on the low temperature deposition of titanium monoxide thin films via electron beam evaporation
Cosar, Mustafa Burak; Icli, Kerem Cagatay; Ozenbas, Macit (American Vacuum Society, 2019-05-01)
In this study, titanium monoxide thin films were evaporated by an electron beam source under different oxygen atmospheres at deposition temperatures not exceeding 80 degrees C. Deposition of thin films at low temperatures is a prerequisite for heat sensitive substrates. XRD results showed that crystallinity of titanium monoxide is achieved without the requirement of high temperature annealing. When oxygen is introduced into the coating chamber, a titanium peak is formed at exactly the Ti+2 position together...
