Si nanocrystals in thermal oxide films ( similar to 250 nm) were fabricated by 100 keV Si ion implantation at various doses followed by high temperature annealing. After annealing a sample implanted with a dose of 1 x 10(17) cm(-2) at 1050 degrees C for 2 h, a broad photoluminescence peak centred around 880 nm was observed. A dose of 5 x 10(16) cm(-2) yields a considerable blue shift of about 100 nm relative to the higher dose. Transmission electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy (AFM) are used to characterize the microstructures in the SiO2 film. The limitations of these techniques for the study of the nanostructures are addressed in this paper and it is suggested that AFM combined with etching can yield a structural spectroscopy with very good sensitivity.

QASRAWI, ATEF FAYEZ HASAN; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Ilaiwi, K. F. (IOP Publishing, 2008-07-01)
The optoelectronic properties of Bridgman method-grown Ga(4)Se(3)S single crystals have been investigated by means of room temperature electrical resistivity, temperature-dependent photosensitivity and temperature-dependent optical absorption. The photosensitivity was observed to increase with decreasing temperature, the illumination dependence of which was found to exhibit monomolecular recombination in the bulk at 300 K. The absorption coefficient, which was calculated in the incident photon energy range ...

Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2007-09-01)
The structural and optical properties of Bridgman method grown Tl2InGaSe4 crystals have been investigated by means of room temperature x-ray diffraction, and transmittance and reflectance spectral analysis, respectively. The x-ray diffraction technique has shown that Tl2InGaSe4 is a single phase crystal of a monoclinic unit cell that exhibits the lattice parameters of a = 0.77244 nm, b = 0.64945 nm, c = 0.92205 nm and beta = 95.03 degrees . The optical data have revealed an indirect allowed transition band ...
Ion beam synthesized lummescent Si nanocrystals embedded in SO2 films and the role of damage on nucleation during annealing
Mayandi, J.; Finstad, T. G.; Foss, S.; Thogersen, A.; Serincan, U.; Turan, Raşit (Elsevier BV, 2007-08-05)
Si nanocrystals in thermal oxide films (similar to 250 nm) were fabricated by 100 keV Si ion implantation followed by high temperature annealing. Two different doses were compared after annealing at 1050 degrees C for 2 h. A sample implanted with a dose of 1 x 10(17) cm(-2) shows a broad photo luminescence peak centered around 880 nm after annealing. A dose of 5 x 10(16) cm(-2) yields a considerable blue shift of about 100 nm relative to the higher dose as well as a reduction in intensity. Transmission elec...
Absorption edge and optical constants of layered structured Tl2Ga2Se3S single crystals
Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2012-06-01)
The optical properties of Tl2Ga2Se3S layered crystals have been studied through transmission and reflection measurements in the photon energy range 1.13-2.82 eV. The optical indirect and direct transitions with band gap energies of 2.15 and 2.54 eV, respectively, were determined from the analysis of absorption data at room temperature. The dispersion of refractive index is discussed in terms of the Wemple-DiDomenico single-effective oscillator model. The refractive index dispersion parameters, namely oscill...
TL and OSL studies on gallium sulfide (GaS) single crystals
Isik, M.; YÜKSEL, MEHMET; TOPAKSU, MUSTAFA; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2020-09-01)
Gallium sulfide (GaS) single crystals were investigated using thermoluminescence (TL) and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) measurements. TL experiments performed in the room temperature (RT)-450 °C range presented a glow curve consisting in six single discrete peaks. Analyses of TL glow curve by computerized glow curve deconvolution method showed that the trapping centers responsible for peaks are located at 0.98, 1.09, 1.15, 1.76, 1.87 and 1.90 eV. The order of kinetics found between 1 and 2 indicat...
