CH3NH3PbBr3 (MAPbBr(3)) materials with perovskite structure were grown by a two-step process using Pb(CH3COO)(2). 3H(2)O and methyl amine bromide (MABr). By changing the concentration of MABr in isopropyl alcohol (IPA) solvent and the annealing temperature, the shape of CH3NH3PbBr3 materials can be controlled to afford nanocubes, nanowires, nanorods, and wrinkled structures. MAPbBr3 with single cubic structure was obtained at a MABr concentration of 3 mg/mL in IPA, and a nanorod array of MAPbBr3 was realized at a MABr concentration of 9 mg/mL in IPA at room temperature. Uniformly wrinkled shapes were formed after the synthesis temperature was increased to 60 and 90 degrees C. The X-ray diffraction patterns, Fourier transform infrared spectra, and X-ray photoelectron spectra of CH3NH3PbBr3 nanorods confirmed that the pure perovskite phase was obtained by dipping Pb(CH3COO)(2). 3H(2)O in MABr/IPA solution. The optical bandgap of the CH3NH3PbBr3 nanorods was estimated from the Tauc plot as 2.2 eV. The evolution of perovskite shapes is expected to lead to improvements in the electrical properties and surface contact, which are important factors for realizing high-performance devices.


Calculation of the thermodynamic and spectroscopic quantities in molecular crystals close to the phase transitons
Kavruk, Dilan; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Department of Physics (2011)
We study in this thesis work the spectroscopic and thermodynamic quantities of some substances such as ammonium halides (NH4Cl, NH4I), ferroelectric crystals of tris-sarcosine calcium chloride (TSCC), tris-sarcosine calcium bromide (TSCB), organic compounds of carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) and s-triazine (C3N3H3) close to the phase transitions. Various physical and chemical properties of those materials have been measured near the critical points and have been reported in the literature. In this study, the sp...
Preparation and Characterization of Mixed Halide MAPbI(3-x)Cl(x) Perovskite Thin Films by Three-Source Vacuum Deposition
Babaei, Azin; Soltanpoor, Wiria; Tesa-Serrate, Maria A.; Yerci, Selçuk; Sessolo, Michele; Bolink, Henk J. (2020-04-01)
Chloride is extensively used in the preparation of metal halide perovskites such as methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI(3-x)Cl(x)), but its persistence and role in solution-processed materials has not yet been rationalized. Multiple-source vacuum deposition of perovskites enables a fine control over thin-film stoichiometry and allows the incorporation of chemical species irrespective of their solubility. Herein, the first example of mixed MAPbI(3-x)Cl(x) thin films prepared by three-source vacuum deposition i...
Low-cost novel X-shaped hole transport materials for efficient perovskite solar cells: Molecular modelling of the core and schiff base effects on photovoltaic and photophysical properties
Abdellah, Islam M.; Yıldırım, Erol; El-Shafei, Ahmed (2023-02-15)
Eight molecules with D-π-D molecular motifs coded HTM(1-4)a,b were designed as efficient symmetric hole transporting materials for perovskite solar cells. These HTMs are composed of different core moieties, such as spiro [fluorene-9,9′-xanthene]-diol (SFO), spiro [fluorene-9,9′-xanthene]-dimethoxy (SFM), benzo [c][1,2,5]thiadiazole (BTD), and biphenyl (BP) and are gaining lot of attention because of their low-cost, reproducible electrical and optical properties in device performance. Detailed information ab...
Modeling of Spherulite Microstructures in Semicrystalline Polymers
Oktay, Hasan Emre; Gürses, Ercan (2014-09-04)
Polymers constitute an important class of materials with a wide range of application areas in modern life. Among these, semicrystalline polymers (SCP), such as high-density polyethylene (HDPE), Nylon-6, poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET), isotactic polypropylene (iPP) and ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), form a sub-set with a significant technological interest. Owing to remarkable deformability and toughness, good impact strength, very low gas-permeability, superior wear resistance and bio...
The role of nanoparticle geometry in flame retardancy of polylactide nanocomposites containing aluminium phosphinate
Isitman, Nihat Ali; Doğan, Mehmet Onur; BAYRAMLI, ERDAL; Kaynak, Cevdet (2012-08-01)
Although there is considerable research effort in the development of halogen-free flame-retardant polylactide (PLA), a bio-based aliphatic polyester, the potential synergistic interactions of nanoparticles and conventional additives have scarcely been considered. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the influence of nanofiller geometry on fire retardancy of PLA nanocomposites containing aluminium diethylphosphinate (AlPi) flame retardant. For this purpose, a variety of nanofiller geometries were utili...
