Ensemble monte carlo study of nonequilibrium carrier dynamics in photo-excited p-i-n, structures

Guncer, SE
Ferry, DK
Light scattering from conduction electrons (or from valence holes) can give information on the time-resolved velocity distribution of nonequilibrium carriers. The experimental approach utilizes, e.g., Raman scattering from the single particles to ascertain the velocity distribution. Calculation of the distribution function through an ensemble Monte Carlo technique allows a comparison between the experiment and theory. Here, this is demonstrated with studies of a GaAs p-i-n structure embedded within cladding AlAs layers. The calculations are compared with experimental results that have recently been published on the same structure. For time scales of several hundred femtoseconds, the hot carrier transport that is probed by the single-particle Raman scattering is dominated by the transport in the Gamma valley, and overshoot velocities 4-5 x 10(5) cm/sec are observed.


Nonlinear Seebeck and Peltier effects in quantum point contacts
Çipiloğlu, Mustafa A; Turgut, Sadi; Tomak, Mehmet (Wiley, 2004-09-01)
The charge and entropy currents across a quantum point contact are expanded as a series in powers of the applied bias voltage and the temperature difference. After that, the expansions of the Seebeck voltage in temperature difference and the Peltier heat in current are obtained. With a suitable choice of the average temperature and chemical potential, the lowest order nonlinear term in both cases appear to be of third order. The behavior of the third-order coefficients in both cases are then investigated fo...
Plasmon lifetime enhancement in a bright-dark mode coupled system
Yildiz, Bilge Can; Bek, Alpan; TAŞGIN, MEHMET EMRE (2020-01-16)
Metallic nanoparticles can localize the incident light to hot spots as plasmon oscillations, where the intensity can be enhanced by up to four orders of magnitude. Even though the lifetime of plasmons is typically short, it can be increased via interactions with quantum emitters, e.g., spaser nanolasers. However, molecules can bleach in days. Here, we study the lifetime enhancement of plasmon excitations due to the coupling with longer-lifetime dark plasmon modes. We apply an analytical model based on harmo...
Electronic properties of a large quantum dot at a finite temperature
Gulveren, B; Atav, U; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2005-09-01)
The physical properties of a two-dimensional parabolic quantum dot composed of large number of interacting electrons are numerically determined by the Thomas Fermi (TF) method at a finite temperature. Analytical solutions are given for zero temperature for comparative purposes. The exact solution of the TF equation is obtained for the non-interacting system at finite temperatures. The effect of the number of particles and temperature on the properties are investigated both for interacting and non-interactin...
Spectroscopic ellipsometry study of above-band gap optical constants of layered structured TlGaSe2, TlGaS2 and TlInS2 single crystals
IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Turan, Raşit (2012-11-01)
Spectroscopic ellipsometry measurements on TlGaSe2, TlGaS2 and TlInS2 layered crystals were carried out on the layer-plane (0 0 1) surfaces, which are perpendicular to the optic axis c*, in the 1.2- 6.2 eV spectral range at room temperature. The real and imaginary parts of the pseudodielectric function as well as pseudorefractive index and pseudoextinction coefficient were found as a result of analysis of ellipsometric data. The structures of critical points in the above-band gap energy range have been char...
Electromagnetic transitions among octet and decuplet baryons in QCD
Alıyev, Tahmasıb; Savcı, Mustafa (2013-08-05)
The magnetic dipole G(M)(Q(2)), electric quadrupole G(E)(Q(2)), and Coulomb quadrupole G(C)(Q(2)) form factors, describing the spin-3/2 to spin-1/2 electromagnetic transitions, are investigated within the light cone QCD sum rules. The Q(2) dependence of these form factors, as well as ratios of electric quadrupole and Coulomb quadrupole form factors to the magnetic dipole form factors, are studied. We also compare our results on the magnetic dipole form factor with the prediction of the covariant spectator q...
