The Nonlinear Theory of the Snoek Relaxation Effect under the Strong and Homogeneous Bias Stress System

Ogurtani, Tarik Ömer
The nonlinear theory of energy dissipation associated with the mobile paraelastic octahedral interstitial atoms in inhomogeneous interaction fields is applied to the specific problem of the ordinary Snoek relaxation under the influence of the uniform static stress system (an external bias field). In the case of a uniaxial static bias stress system, an extremely accurate and simple analytical expression is deduced for the logarithmic decrement which indicates strong dependence on the magnitude, sign, and direction of the externally applied bias stress with respect to the direction of the excitation field in body centered cubic lattices. It is also demonstrated that by the internal friction measurements in single crystals, utilizing the large on‐line (parallel) and/or off‐line (orthogonal) static bias fields, the direct information about the symmetry, shape and strength of the elastic dipole tensor associated with the equilibrium‐point configurations (intrinsic) can be obtained.

A new empirical many‐body potential energy function is proposed which comprises two‐ and three‐body interactions. The two‐body potential is a kind of hybrid function and the three‐body potential is expressed in terms of the two‐body interactions. The parameters of the potential energy function can be easily evaluated using dimer data and the bulk cohesive energy of the system considered. The proposed potential energy function is parameterized for several elements in f.c.c., b.c.c., and diamond structures an...
Theoretical investigation of intersubband nonlinear optical rectification in AlxlGa1-xlAs/GaAs/AlxrGa1-xrAs asymmetric rectangular quantum wells
Karabulut, Ibrahim; Atav, Uelfet; Safak, Haluk; Tomak, Mehmet (Wiley, 2007-09-01)
In this study, a theoretical investigation of intersubband nonlinear optical rectification in Alx1Ga1-x1As/ GaAs/AlxrGa1-xrAs asymmetric rectangular quantum wells is presented. The electronic states in the asymmetric rectangular quantum well are described within the framework of the envelope function approach including the effects of band nonparabolicity and the effective mass mismatch. The nonlinear optical rectification is calculated using the density matrix formalism. It is found that the nonlinear optic...

For the first time theoretical (in terms of the classical theory of ordering) and experimental (with the adiabatic calorimeter method) investigations are made of the effect of a third component impurity C on the heat capacity of A3B‐type ordered alloys with FCC structure. The effect of the impurities Mn, Cr, Mo, or W on the heat capacity of Ni3Fe alloys is analysed as an example. The comparison of the theoretical results with the experimental data shows good qualitative agreement.
Numerical evidence of spontaneous division of dissipative solitons in a planar gas discharge-semiconductor system
Rafatov, İsmail (AIP Publishing, 2019-09-01)
This work deals with the formation of patterns of spatially localized solitary objects in a planar semiconductor gas-discharge system with a high Ohmic electrode. These objects, known as dissipative solitons, are generated in this system in the form of self-organized current filaments, which develop from the homogeneous stationary state by the Turing bifurcation. The numerical model reveals, for the first time, evidence of spontaneous division of the current filaments in this system, similar to that observe...
The electronic structure of a quantum well under an applied electric field
Sari, H; Ergun, Y; Sokmen, I; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 1996-01-01)
The effects of an applied electric field on quantum well subband energies are calculated variationally within the effective mass approximation for model potential profiles. The concept of a quasi-bound state is examined critically. For higher electric field values it is shown that the quasi-bound state approximation for the ground and first excited state of the electron, and for the ground state of the hole is valid.
