Interaction of water molecule with silicon surfaces

Katırcıoğlu, Şenay
In this work, a number of state density calculations are carried out to understand the binding states of adsorbed H2O on Si(111) and Si(100) surfaces and the spectra resulting therefrom. It is found that the angle between the molecular plane and the surface normal has a drastic effect on the adsorbate states. In the light of the IR, EELS and UPS experimental results, the LDOS calculations lead to the dissociative type adsorption of H2O on Si(111) and Si(100) surfaces excluding the molecular type.

An ab initio study of 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane molecule on Si(111)-(root 3 x root 3) surface
Demirel, G.; Birlik, G.; Cakmak, M.; Caykara, T.; Ellialtıoğlu, Süleyman Şinasi (Elsevier BV, 2007-09-15)
The chemisorption and reaction of 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane (APTS) molecule on the Si(111)-(root 3 x root 3) surface are investigated by first principles density-functional calculations within the generalized gradient approximation. Before studying the chemisorption of APTS molecule on the surface, we have firstly put three-OH groups on the silicon surface, but considering six different locations for H and O atoms. Upon their relaxations, model 11, which is assumed to be crosswise for initial orientatio...
Effect of hydrogenation on B/Si(001)-(1 x 2)
Cakmak, M.; Mete, E.; Ellialtıoğlu, Süleyman Şinasi (Elsevier BV, 2007-09-15)
Ab initio calculations, based on pseudopotentials and density functional theory, have been performed to investigate the effect of hydrogenation on the atomic geometries and the energetics of substitutional boron on the generic Si(001)-(1 x 2) surface. For a single B atom substitution corresponding to 0.5 ML coverage, we have considered two different sites: (i) the mixed Si-B dimer structure and (ii) boron substituting for the second-layer Si to form Si-B back-bond structure, which is energetically more favo...
Dissociation of Ph-3 and AsH3 on Ge(100)(2x1) surface
Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2007-06-01)
The most stable structures for the dissociation of phosphine and arsine on Ge(100)(2x1) surface have been investigated by relative total energy calculations based on Density Functional Theory. It has been found that the thermodynamically preferred structures in the dissociation path of phosphine and arsine are the same; PH2 and AsH2 products prefer to be on a single Ge dimer bond, but PH and AsH prefer to be between the adjacent Ge dimers. According to the optimization calculations, the dissociation path st...
Interaction of BrPDI, BrGly, and BrAsp with the Rutile TiO2(110) Surface for Photovoltaic and Photocatalytic Applications: A First-Principles Study
Cakir, D.; GÜLSEREN, Oğuz; METE, ERSEN; Ellialtıoğlu, Süleyman Şinasi (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-05-12)
The adsorption of perylenediimide (PDI)-based dye compounds (BrPDI, BrGly, and BrAsp) on the defect-free unreconstructed (UR) rutile TiO2(110) surface has been studied using total energy pseudopotential calculations based on density functional theory. All dye molecules form moderate chemical bonds with the defect-free UR rutile (110) surface in the most stable adsorption configurations. Electronic structure analysis reveals that HOMO and LUMO levels of the adsorbed dye molecules appear within the band gap a...
Effects of gold-induced crystallization process on the structural and electrical properties of germanium thin films
Kabacelik, Ismail; Kulakci, Mustafa; Turan, Raşit; ÜNAL, NURİ (Wiley, 2018-07-01)
Gold-induced (Au-) crystallization of amorphous germanium (-Ge) thin films was investigated by depositing Ge on aluminum-doped zinc oxide and glass substrates through electron beam evaporation at room temperature. The influence of the postannealing temperatures on the structural properties of the Ge thin films was investigated by employing Raman spectra, X-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy. The Raman and X-ray diffraction results indicated that the Au-induced crystallization of the Ge films ...
