Electron Transport Properties of Ga0.51In0.49P for Device Applications

We present Monte Carlo calculations of steady-state and transient electron transport properties of Ga0.51In0.49P. We have made a simulation-based comparison between Ga0.51In0.49P and AlxGa1-xAs (x = 0.2, 0.3). Our Monte Carlo data show that transport properties of Ga0.51In0.49P are favorable, and when the other advantages of the GaInP/GaAs system are also taken into account. this material is a good choice to replace AlxGa1-xAs (x greater-than-or-equal-to 0.3). We have also calculated electron drift and Hall mobilities in Ga0.51In0.49P as a function of impurity concentration and temperature, and determined the effects of different scattering mechanisms on the low-field mobility. Calculated results are in good agreement with the measurements on metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) grown samples with Hall mobilities within a factor of 0.5 of the calculated theoretical limit. It has also been found that alloy scattering is an important mobility degrading mechanism in lightly doped material at low temperatures.

Atomic and electronic properties of spherical silicon clusters
Erkoc, S; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (1999-07-01)
We have investigated the atomic and electronic properties of spherical ideal Si-N clusters (N = 5-417) using the empirical many-body potential energy function consisting of two- and three-body interactions, and by empirical tight-binding calculations, respectively. It has been found that the average interaction energy per atom decreases as the cluster size increases, and it becomes almost constant after the size N greater than or equal to 275. On the other hand, the band gap shows cluster size dependent cha...
Quantum chemical simulation of nitric oxide reduction by ammonia (scr reaction) on v2o5 / tio2 catalyst surface
Soyer, Sezen; Önal, Işıl; Department of Chemical Engineering (2005)
The reaction mechanism for the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of nitric oxide by ammonia on (010) V2O5 surface represented by a V2O9H8 cluster was simulated by density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The computations indicated that SCR reaction consisted of three main parts. In the first part ammonia activation on Brønsted acidic V-OH site as NH4+ species by a nonactivated process takes place. The second part includes the interaction of NO with pre-adsorbed NH4 + species to eventually form nitros...
Catalytic partial oxidation of propylene on metal surfaces by means of quantum chemical methods
Kızılkaya, Ali Can; Önal, Işık; Department of Chemical Engineering (2010)
Direct, gas phase propylene epoxidation reactions are carried out on model slabs representing Ru-Cu(111) bimetallic and Cu(111) metallic catalyst surfaces with periodic Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations. Ru-Cu(111) surface is modelled as a Cu(111) monolayer totally covering the surface of Ru(0001) surface underneath. The catalytic activity is evaluated following the generally accepted oxametallacycle mechanism. It is shown that the Ru-Cu(111) surface has a lower energy barrier (0.48 eV) for the s...
Electric dipole moments of charged leptons and lepton flavor violating interactions in the general two Higgs doublet model
Iltan, EO (American Physical Society (APS), 2001-07-01)
We calculate the electric dipole moment of the electron using the experimental result of the muon electric dipole moment and upper limit of the BR(mu-->e gamma) in the framework of the general two Higgs doubler model. Our prediction is 10(-32) e cm, which lies in the experimental current limits. Further, we obtain constraints for the Yukawa couplings )over bar>(D)(N,taue) and )over bar>(D)(N,tau mu). Finally, we present an expression which connects the BR(tau-->mu gamma) and the electric dipole moment of th...
Thermal Rearrangements of 1-Ethynyl-2-methylcyclopropane: A Computational Study
Bozkaya, Ugur; Özkan, İlker (2012-03-29)
In this research, a comprehensive theoretical investigation of the thermal rearrangements of 1-ethynyl-2-methylcyclopropane is carried out employing density functional theory (DFT), with the B3LYP functional, and high-level ab initio methods, such as the complete active space self-consistent field (CASSCF), multireference second-order Moller-Plesset perturbation theory (MRMP2), and coupled-cluster singles and doubles with perturbative triples [CCSD(T)]. In all computations Pople's polarized triple-zeta spli...
