AgInSe2 and In2Se3 are two attractive semiconducting materials for various technological applications especially for photovoltaic applications. In the present study, structural and optical properties of (AgInSe2)(x)-(In2Se3)(1-x) crystals for composition of x = 0.75 corresponding to chemical formula of Ag3In5Se9 were characterized by X-ray diffraction, energy-dispersive spectroscopy, room temperature transmission, and ellipsometry experiments. The transmittance spectrum was analyzed to reveal energy band gap. The derivative spectrophotometry analysis resulted in band gap energy of 1.22 eV. The spectra of complex dielectric function, refractive index and extinction coefficient were presented between 1.6 and 6.2 eV from the outcomes of ellipsometry analyses. Critical point energies have been determined using the derivative analyses of dielectric function. Five critical points at 2.70, 3.30, 4.05, 4.73, and 5.42 eV were revealed from the analyses. Crystal structure and atomic composition in semiconducting compound were also reported in the present work. The obtained results were compared with those reported for constituent compounds.


Electronic structure of carbon nanotubes: AM1-RHF calculations
Erkoç, Şakir; Turker, L (Elsevier BV, 1999-07-01)
We have investigated the electronic structure of optimized open-ended single-wall carbon nanotubes with armchair and zigzag geometries. The calculations were performed using AM1-RHF semiempirical molecular orbital method. It has been found that the density of states of the zigzag model is more sensitive to the tube size than that of the armchair model.
Sensory applications of resonator based metamaterial absorber
Metamaterials are attractive media for scientific society for their potential multi-functional and a wide range of applications due to their unusual electromagnetic properties. In this paper, we present several important applications including pressure, density and volumetric moisture sensing based on rectangular split ring structure with a strip line. These applications are carried out experimentally and numerically. Since the sensing ability is mostly connected with the resonance frequencies, we have care...

Ahiboz, Doguscan; Nasser, Hisham; Aygun, Ezgi; Bek, Alpan; Turan, Raşit (IOP Publishing, 2018-04-01)
Integration of oxygen deficient sub-stoichiometric titanium dioxide (TiO2-x) thin films as the electron transporting-hole blocking layer in solar cell designs are expected to reduce fabrication costs by eliminating high temperature processes while maintaining high conversion efficiencies. In this paper, we conducted a study to reveal the electrical properties of TiO2-x thin films grown on crystalline silicon (c-Si) substrates by atomic layer deposition (ALD) technique. Effect of ALD substrate temperature, p...

This study reveals the electrical properties of In/HfO2/n-Si structure with atomic layer-deposited interfacial oxide layer, HfO2 thin film between In top metal contact and monocrystalline Si wafer substrate. From the dark current-voltage measurements, the diode structure showed good rectifying behavior and low saturation current of about two order of magnitude and 1.2 x 10(- 9) A, respectively. According to the conventional thermionic emission model, zero-bias barrier height and ideality factor were calcula...

This study focuses on both epitaxial growths of InxGa1-xN epilayers with graded In content, and the performance of solar cells structures grown on sapphire substrate by using metal organic chemical vapor deposition. The high resolution X-ray and Hall Effect characterization were carried out after epitaxial InGaN solar cell structures growth. The In content of the graded InGaN layer was calculated from the X-ray reciprocal space mapping measurements. Indium contents of the graded InGaN epilayers change from ...
