Upconversion fluorescence of Er3+ ions (1 at. %) excited with femtosecond laser pulses of different repetition frequencies (seed laser 76 MHz, and laser amplifier 1 kHz) is studied in the Er-doped chalcohalide glass of 65GeS(2)-25Ga(2)S(3)-10CsCl composition. Strong weakening of fluorescence efficiency at 530 nm and 560 nm and photoinduced darkening are observed under 1 kHz excitation, which is most probably caused by free carriers generated by two-photon absorption. On the other hand, neither weakening nor photodarkening is observed under 76 MHz excitation, this being presumably due to concomitant thermal annealing. Taking an advantage of upconversion fluorescence, the femtosecond filamentation associated with positive changes in refractive index is recorded in the Er-doped 65GeS(2)-25Ga(2)S(3)-10CsCl glass, whereas exceeding the threshold of thermal melting is accompanied by an opposite decrease in the refractive index.


Synthesis, characterization, photophysical and electrochemical properties of a new non - planar perylene diimide with electron donating substituent
Mostafanejad, S. Melika; Bodapati, Jagadeesh B.; Özkar, Saim; İCİL, Hüriye (Elsevier BV, 2018-08-01)
A new nonplanar and soluble, donor-acceptor-donor system (3) based on a perylene diimide chromophore (1) consisting on 5-amino-4-cyano-3-methylthiophene-2-carboxamide (2) as electron donating unit at imide position has been synthesized. The photophysical and electrochemical properties were systematically investigated in different solvents. All the results of structural characterization reveal that the thiophene units are not coplanar with the core of perylene diimide. Spectroscopic properties of 3 in soluti...
Effect of the number of cycles on the optical and structural properties of Mn3O4 nanostructures obtained by SILAR technique
BAYRAM, ÖZKAN; Simsek, Onder; GÜNEY, HARUN; İĞMAN, ERDAL; Ozer, Mustafa Murat (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-06-01)
In this study, nanostructured Mn3O4 (manganese oxide) thin films were successfully obtained by successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) method on the soda lime glass substrates using Manganese Nitrate (Mn(NO3)(2)) and Ammonium hydroxide (NH4(OH)) as cationic and anionic precursors respectively. Structural and morphological characterizations of the Mn3O4 films obtained at different cycles were determined using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The crystal structure...
Carbon content influence on the optical constants of hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbon alloys
Akaoglu, B.; Sel, K.; Atilgan, I.; Katircioglu, B. (Elsevier BV, 2008-04-01)
Hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbon alloys (a-Si1-xCx:H) with different carbon contents are deposited by a plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) system with different hydrogen diluted ethylene (C2H4) concentrations at two power densities of 30 and 90 mW/cm(2). First, the carbon and hydrogen configurations and their relative concentrations in these films are investigated in details by IR spectroscopy. Then, the ultraviolet/visible transmittance spectroscopy and a relevant characterization softw...
Composition-tuned optical absorption and luminescence of TlGaxIn1-xS2 layered mixed crystals at T=10 K
Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2018-10-01)
Transmittance on TlGaxIn1-xS2 mixed crystals (0 <= x <= 1) was carried out in the 2.35-2.75 eV photon energy range at T = 10 K. Band gap energies of crystals were obtained utilizing the derivative spectra of transmittance and photon energy dependence of absorption coefficient. The dependence of direct band gap energy on composition at T = 10 K revealed that as gallium composition is elevated in the mixed crystals, the direct band gap energy increases from 2.56 to 2.67 eV.
A parabolic quantum dot with N electrons and an impurity
Gulveren, B; Atav, U; Sahin, M; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2005-12-01)
Ground-state properties of a two-dimensional quantum dot composed of N electrons and an impurity are investigated by the Thomas-Fermi (TF) method at T = 0. The changes induced by the impurity in electron density, chemical potential and total energy are calculated. Calculations are also performed for different number of particles and strength of confinement. The results indicate that Thomas-Fermi approximation is applicable even when the system contains only a few particles.
