Structural and optical properties of ZnSe thin films grown by electron-beam evaporation technique were reported in the present paper. X-ray diffraction pattern exhibited a single peak around 27 degrees which is well-suited with cubic phase of the films. Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy analyses resulted in atomic composition ratio of Zn/Se nearly 1.0 which corresponds to the chemical formula of ZnSe. Transmission experiments were performed at various temperatures in between 10 and 300 K. The analyses of the transmission data showed that direct band gap energy of the ZnSe thin films increases from 2.72 to 2.83 eV as temperature was reduced to 10 K from room temperature. The Varshni and O'Donnell-Chen models giving the temperature-band gap energy relation were used to get various optical parameters of the evaporated thin films. Analyses resulted in absolute zero temperature band gap energy as 2.83 eV, temperature coefficient as -5.8 x 10(-4) eV K-1 and average phonon energy as 16 meV. Urbach tail state energies were also calculated using absorption coefficient in the low photon energy region as increasing from 173 meV (300 K) to 181 meV (10 K) with decreasing ambient temperature.

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 ...
Optoelectronic properties of Ga(4)Se(3)S-layered single crystals
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 ...
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...
Radiative damping of whistlers in a dense magnetoactive plasma waveguide
Yilmaz, A; Oke, G; Rukhadze, A; Bilikmen, S (IOP Publishing, 1996-06-01)
The absorption of whistler waves in a magnetized cylindrical plasma due to coupling with oblique Langmuir waves is investigated. Two types of mechanisms exist for whistler absorption. The first one is related to the excitation of Langmuir waves in the volume of the dense plasma and their subsequent absorption due to the electron collisions. The second one is the emission of Langmuir waves outside of the cylindrical plasma when it is surrounded by the rare plasma. The relation between these whistler absorpti...
Enhancement of optical parametric amplification in microresonators via gain medium parameter selection and mean cavity wall reflectivity adjustment
Asirim, Ozum Emre; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (IOP Publishing, 2020-09-01)
This paper computationally investigates the effect of the polarization decay rate (gamma), and the peak resonance frequency (f(0)) on optical parametric amplification inside a low-loss micro resonator. It is found that, for lower values of the polarization decay rate and the peak resonance frequency, the magnitude of amplification can be significantly higher. However, it was also observed that beyond a certain threshold value of the polarization decay rate, the gain factor of the amplification sharply reduc...
