Thermally stimulated current analysis of shallow levels in TlGaS2 layered single crystals
Yuksek, NS; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Ozkan, H (IOP Publishing, 2003-09-01)
We have carried out thermally stimulated current measurements on as-grown T1GaS(2) layered single crystals in the temperature range of 10-60 K with various heating rates. We found experimental evidence for the presence of three trapping centres in TlGaS2, located at 6, 12 and 26 meV. We have determined the trap parameters using various methods of analysis, and these agree well with each other. The retrapping process is negligible for these levels, as confirmed by the good agreement between the experimental ...
Investigation of band gap energy versus temperature for SnS 2 thin films grown by RF-magnetron sputtering
Isik, M.; Gullu, H. H.; Terlemezoglu, M.; Surucu, O. Bayrakli; Parlak, Mehmet; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2020-08-01)
SnS2 thin films grown by magnetron sputtering technique were characterized by structurally and optically in the present work. Crystalline parameters, atomic compositions, and surface characteristics of SnS2 thin films were presented according to results of applied structural techniques. Optical studies of SnS2 thin films were accomplished by Raman spectroscopy and transmission methods. Raman spectrum exhibited two modes around 198 and 320 cm−1. Transmittance data obtained for various temperatures between 10...
Thermally stimulated currents in layered semiconductor Tl4In3GaS8
Hasanlı, Nızamı; Mogaddam, N. A. P. (IOP Publishing, 2006-09-01)
We have carried out thermally stimulated current measurements on as-grown Tl4In3GaS8 layered single crystals in the temperature range 10-90 K with different heating rates of 0.10-0.30 K s(-1). The data were analysed by curve fitting, heating rates and isothermal decay methods. The results were in good agreement with each other. Experimental evidence was found for one trapping centre in Tl4In3GaS8 crystal with an activation energy of 12 meV. The capture cross section and concentration of the traps were found...
Determination of current transport characteristics in Au-Cu/CuO/n-Si Schottky diodes
Surucu, O. Bayrakli; Güllü, Hasan Hüseyin; Terlemezoglu, M.; Yildiz, D. E.; Parlak, M. (Elsevier BV, 2019-10-01)
In this study, the material properties of CuO thin films fabricated by sputtering technique and electrical properties of CuO/n-Si structure were reported. Temperature-dependent current-voltage (I-V) measurement was carried out to determine the detail electrical characteristics of this structure. The anomaly in thermionic emission (TE) model related to barrier height inhomogeneity at the interface was obtained from the forward bias I-V analysis. The current transport mechanism at the junction was determined ...
Optimization of microwave frying of osmotically dehydrated potato slices by using response surface methodology
Öztop, Halil Mecit; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-04-01)
Microwave frying of osmotically dehydrated potatoes was optimized by using response surface methodology. Osmotic dehydration was applied prior to microwave frying in order to reduce oil uptake and to evaluate the effect of osmotic dehydration on quality of microwave fried potatoes. Moisture content, oil content, hardness and color of the fried potatoes were used as quality parameters. Microwave power level (400, 550, 700 W), frying time (1.5, 2.0, 2.5 min) and osmotic dehydration time (15, 30, 45 min) were ...
