In this paper, structural and optical properties of Ga-In-Se (GIS) thin films deposited by thermal evaporation technique have been investigated. The effect of annealing was also studied for samples annealed at temperatures between 300 degrees C and 500 degrees C. X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray analysis and scanning electron microscopy have been used for structural characterization. It was reported that increase of annealing temperature results with better crystallization and chemical composition of the films were almost same. Optical properties of the films were studied by transmission measurements in the wavelength range of 320-1100 nm. The direct bandgap transitions with energies in the range of 1.52 eV and 1.65 eV were revealed for the investigated GIS films. Photon energy dependence of absorption coefficient showed that there exist three distinct transition regions for films annealed at 400 degrees C and 500 degrees C. The quasicubic model was applied for these transitions to calculate crystal-field splitting and spin-orbit splitting energy values.

Structural and optical properties of Zn-In-Te thin films deposited by thermal evaporation technique
Gullu, H. H.; Bayrakli, O.; CANDAN, İDRİS; COŞKUN, EMRE; Parlak, Mehmet (2013-07-25)
Annealing effects on structural and optical properties of the thermally evaporated Zn-In-Te(ZIT) thin films have been investigated. The structural and the compositional analyses were carried out by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDXA). The as-grown and annealed ZIT films had polycrystalline structure and the preferred orientation changed from (220) to (112) direction with increasing annealing temperature. The optical properties and constants were determined by transmi...
Structural and optical characteristics of thermally evaporated TlGaSe2 thin films
Isik, M.; KARATAY, AHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2022-02-01)
The present paper reports the structural and optical properties of thermally evaporated TlGaSe2 thin films. X-ray diffraction pattern of evaporated film presented two diffraction peaks around 24.15 and 36.00° which are associated with planes of monoclinic unit cell. Surface morphology of the TlGaSe2 thin films was investigated by scanning electron and atomic force microscopy techniques. Although there was observed some ignorable amount of clusters of quasi-spherical shape in the scanning electron microscope...
Investigation of structural and optical parameters of Cu-Ag-In-Se thin films deposited by thermal evaporation method
Gullu, H. H.; CANDAN, İDRİS; COŞKUN, EMRE; Parlak, Mehmet (2015-01-01)
Annealing effect on the structural and optical properties of the quaternary Cu-Ag-In-Se thin film deposited by the thermal evaporation has been investigated. The evaporation source was prepared by using vertical Bridgman-Stockbarger crystal growth system. Structural analysis indicated that annealing the films following to the deposition resulted in the changes from amorphous to polycrystalline phase with the preferred orientation along (1 1 2) direction. In order to determine the optical properties of the t...
Optical and structural characteristics of electrodeposited Cd 1-xZnxS nanostructured thin films
Erturk, K.; Isik, M.; Terlemezoglu, M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2021-04-01)
The structural and optical characteristics of Cd1-xZnxS (CdZnS) thin films grown by the electrodeposition method were investigated in the present paper. The crystalline structure of the grown CdZnS thin film was determined as cubic wurtzite due to observed diffraction peaks associated with (111) and (220) planes. Atomic compositional ratios of the constituent elements were obtained using energy dispersive spectroscopy and doping concentration of the Zn was found as 5% (x ~ 0.05). Scanning electron microscop...
Structural characteristics of thermally evaporated Cu0.5Ag0.5InSe2 thin films
Gullu, H. H.; Parlak, Mehmet (2016-05-01)
In this work, Cu0.5Ag0.5InSe2 (CAIS) thin film samples were prepared by thermal evaporation of Cu, Ag, InSe and Se evaporants sequentially on glass substrates. Following the deposition, annealing processes were applied at different temperatures. The as-grown and annealed CAIS samples were nearly stoichiometric in the detection limit of the compositional measurement. The x-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements revealed that they were in polycrystalline structure with a preferred orientation along the (112) dire...
