The effect of rare-earth element (Sm) microalloying on the thermal stability and crystallization kinetics of melt-spun ribbons and suction-cast rods of Zr48Cu38.4Al9.6Sm4 alloy were investigated using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and atom probe tomography (APT). The XRD results of constant heating rate annealing indicated that amorphous Zr48Cu38.4Al9.6Sm4 melt-spun ribbons devitrifies into Cu2Sm at 673 K (400 A degrees C). The sequence continues with the precipitation of Cu10Zr7 and then these two phases coexist. XRD and TEM studies on 1 mm diameter as suction-cast rods indicated the precipitation of 30-nm-mean size Cu2Sm crystals during solidification. TEM investigation of the isothermal crystallization sequence of melt-spun ribbons and 1-mm-diameter suction-cast rods revealed the precipitation of Cu2Sm nanocrystals at the onset of crystallization and the restriction of the growth of these nanocrystals up to 10 nm diameter with further annealing. APT analysis of 1-mm-diameter suction-cast rods showed that the limited growth of Cu2Sm nanocrystals is due to sluggish diffusion of Sm and Al-Zr pile up at the interface.

Kinetics of fcc-Al nanocrystallization in Al90Tb10 metallic glass
DEMIRTAS, T.; Kalay, Yunus Eren (Elsevier BV, 2013-10-15)
The crystallization kinetics of Al90Tb10 amorphous alloy were investigated by a combined study of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Cu-K alpha X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses and microhardness measurements. Amorphous to fcc-Al transformation kinetics were descried through Johnson-Mehl-Avrami OMA) approach based on the isothermal DSC hold at 220 degrees C. XRD and TEM revealed the formation of highly populated (similar to 10(21) m(-3)) fcc-Al nanocrystals after...

QASRAWI, ATEF FAYEZ HASAN; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
The crystal structure, temperature-dependent electrical conductivity, Hall coefficient, current-voltage characteristics, absorption spectra and temperature- and illumination-dependent photoconductivity of Tl3InSe4 single crystals were investigated. Tl3InSe4 crystallises in a body-centred lattice with tetragonal symmetry and belongs to the space group [image omitted]. The crystals are extrinsic p-type semiconductors and exhibit a conductivity conversion from p- to n-type at a critical temperature, Tc, of 283...
Optical dynamics of MgO/Ga4Se3S interface
Qasrawi, A. F.; Abd-Alrazq, Mariam M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-15)
A new p-n interface made of p-type MgO as an optical window to the n-type Ga4Se3S crystals is investigated by means of optical reflectance, transmittance and absorbance in the incident light wavelength (k) range of 200-1100 nm. The reflectivity spectral analysis as a function of angle of incidence for MgO, Ga4Se3S and the Ga4Se3S/MgO layers revealed Brewster angles of 75 degrees, 80 degrees and 70 degrees with the corresponding dielectric constants of 13.93, 32.16 and eMgO 7: 55eGa(4)Se(3)S, respectively. T...

Structural and optical characteristics of Bi12SiO20 single crystal grown by the Czochralski method were investigated by virtue of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and spectroscopic ellipsometry measurements. XRD analysis indicated that the studied crystal possesses cubic structure with lattice parameters of a = 1.0107 nm. Spectral dependencies of several optical parameters like complex dielectric constant, refractive index, extinction and absorption coefficients were determined using ellipsometry experiments perform...
