In this study, the effect of insulator layer on the electrical characteristics of Au/n-4H SiC diode was investigated. The current-voltage (), capacitance-voltage () and conductance-voltage () measurements were carried out at room temperature condition. Under thermionic emission model, electrical parameters as zero-bias barrier height (), ideality factor (n), interface states (), and series () and shunt () resistances were estimated from forward bias analyses. The values of n and were about 1.305 and 0.796 eV for metal-semiconductor (MS) rectifying diode, and 3.142 and 0.713 eV for metal-insulator-semiconductor (MIS) diode with the insertion of layer, respectively. Since the values of n were greater than the unity, the fabricated diodes showed non-ideal behaviour. The energy distribution profile of of the diodes was calculated by taking into account of the bias dependence of the effective barrier height () and . The obtained values with are almost one order of magnitude lower than those without for two diodes. According to Cheung's model, were calculated and these values were found in increasing behaviour with the contribution of insulator layer. In addition, the plot behaviours with linear dependence between ln() vs. indicated that the dominant conduction mechanism in the reverse bias region was Schottky effect for both MS and MIS diodes. In the room temperature measurements, different from the results of MIS diode, the values of C for MS diode was observed in decreasing behaviour from ideality with crossing the certain forward bias voltage point ( ). The decrease in the negative capacitance corresponds to the increase of G / w.

In this study, effect of the post-deposition thermal annealing on copper oxide thin films has been systemically investigated. The copper oxide thin films were chemically deposited on glass substrates by spin-coating. Samples were annealed in air at atmospheric pressure and at different temperatures ranging from 200 to 600 degrees C. The microstructural, morphological, optical properties and surface electronic structure of the thin films have been studied by diagnostic techniques such as X-ray diffraction (X...

This paper reports on an investigation of the use of expanded perlite aggregate as saturated lightweight aggregate (LWA) with respect to the mechanical and dimensional stability properties of engineered cemetitious composites (ECC). Expanded perlite aggregate was soaked in water for 24 h before its use in ECC, and replaced 10, 20, and 30% of the aggregate that was used in ECC production. The mixture proportion of a standard ECC mixture with properties that have been extensively reported in the literature is...

Gullu, H. H.; YILDIZ, DİLBER ESRA; Surucu, O. Bayrakli; Terlemezoğlu, Makbule; Parlak, Mehmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-04-01)
Cu2ZnSnTe4 (CZTTe) thin films with In metal contact were deposited by thermal evaporation on monocrystalline n-type Si wafers with Ag ohmic contact to investigate the device characteristics of an In/CZTTe/Si/Ag diode. The variation in electrical characteristics of the diode was analysed by carrying out current-voltage (I-V) measurements in the temperature range of 220-360 K. The forward bias I-V behaviour was modelled according to the thermionic emission (TE) theory to obtain main diode parameters. In addit...

The possible improvements in structural stability and capacity of nickel-cobalt-aluminium cathode material were investigated by synthesizing this compound with various lithium amounts (Lix (Ni0.80Co0.15Al0.05)O-2 where x = 0.90, 0.95, 1.00 and 1.05). An ultrasound-assisted co-precipitation method was performed to produce spherical, nanosized powders with a narrow size distribution which satisfies a homogeneous and dense film during calendaring. Layered Li-x(Ni0.80Co0.15Al0.05)O-2 (x = 0.90, 0.95, 1.00 and 1...
Effect of tube spinning and subsequent heat treatments on strength, microstructure and residual stress state of AISI/SAE type 4140 steel

In the present study, the effects of deformation percentage (23, 30, 50 and 66%) and subsequent stress relief and tempering heat treatments on the mechanical properties, residual stress state and microstructure of AISI/SAE type 4140 steel tubes manufactured by forward spinning were evaluated. Mechanical properties were determined by means of hardness and tensile tests. The tangential component of the surface residual stresses was determined by a slitting method. Plastic deformation of the metal during spinn...
