Electromagnetic shielding effectiveness of galvanostatically synthesized conducting polypyrrole films in the 300-2000 MHz frequency range

Kaynak, A
Both far-field (plane wave) and near field shielding effectiveness (SE) measurements have been conducted on electrochemically synthesized conducting polypyrrole(PPy) films with wide ranging conductivity levels (10(-2) S/cm to 45 S/cm). Go-axial transmission line, TEM test cell and TE(10) waveguide techniques were employed to measure shielding effectiveness as a function of polymer conductivity, frequency and temperature. Highly doped polypyrrole films exhibited shielding levels, above 40 dB from 300 MHz to 2 GHz, which can make them attractive for consideration in shielding applications. However, a loss of 10 to 15 dB in the shielding effectiveness, for the samples aged for a period of two years at room temperature, was observed. SE of PPy films increased with the increase in the dopant concentration and decreased with frequency reaching a plateau at higher frequencies. However, corrected SE values as a function of frequency appeared relatively flat. The measurements made directly on the TEM-t cell would simulate high impedance condition (E-field) due to the capacitive coupling, and use of the correction factors therefore eliminated this condition, giving rise to corrected far-field SE values. Using the theory for plane wave shielding effectiveness of thin material shields, the agreement between the theory and experimental results were tested. Effect of temperature on the plane-wave SE of a lightly doped (0.006 M p-TS) PPy film was also investigated. Results showed significant increase in the SE with temperature. At room temperature the lightly doped PPy film with a dc conductivity of 0.01 S/cm was almost transparent to microwaves with very little reflection or absorption.


Optical properties of Cu3In5S9 single crystals by spectroscopic ellipsometry
Işık, Mehmet; Nasser, H.; Ahmedova, F.; Guseinov, A.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2018-01-01)
Cu3In5S9 single crystals were investigated by structural methods of x-ray diffraction and energy dispersive spectroscopy and optical techniques of ellipsometry and reflection carried out at room temperature. The spectral dependencies of optical constants; dielectric function, refractive index and extinction coefficient, were plotted in the range of 1.2-6.2 eV from ellipsometric data. The spectra of optical constants obtained from ellipsometry analyses and reflectance spectra presented a sharp change around ...

Esentürk, Okan; Heilweil, Edwin J. (2007-12-01)
Intrinsic photoconductivities of P3HT polymers were measured and compared by using optical pump-THz probe spectroscopy. The charge carrier mobility shows a clear dependence on the molecular weight and dispersion index of the polymers.

IŞIK, MEHMET; Tugay, Evrin; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2016-01-01)
Temperature-dependent transmission and room temperature reflection measurements were carried out on GaS0.5Se0.5 single crystal in the wavelength range of 380-1000 nm to investigate its optical parameters. The analysis of the temperature-dependent absorption data showed that direct and indirect band gap energies increase from 2.36 to 2.50 eV and 2.27 to 2.40 eV, respectively, as temperature is decreased from 300 to 10 K. The rates of change of the direct and indirect band gap energies with temperature was fo...

Isik, M.; Gullu, H. H.; COŞKUN, EMRE; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2019-01-01)
Thermally deposited Cu-Ga-S thin films were optically characterized by means of experimental techniques of transmission measurements. The analyses of transmittance spectra were accomplished by derivative spectrophotometry analyses to get gap energies of thin films. The transmittance spectra of thin films annealed at different temperatures presented interference fringes which were analyzed by Swanepoel envelope method. The wavelength dependencies of optical parameters; refractive index (n), real part of comp...

IŞIK, MEHMET; Güllü, Hasan Hüseyin (2014-05-30)
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...
