DFT-based ab-initio study of half-Heusler KCaP compound

An ab-initio study of structural, elastic, electronic and optical properties of KCaP compound with space group F (4) over bar 3m have been reported using the plane-wave pseudo-potential technique based on density functional theory under pressure effect. The elastic anisotropy of compound is investigated in terms of Poisson's ratio, shear modulus and Young's modulus with pressure effect. The electronic band structure calculations and charge densities are obtained. Optical properties are also investigated and refraction index, extinction coefficient, reflectivity and loss function of KCaP compound are determined.

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 ...
Optical characterization of Ga2SeS layered crystals by transmission, reflection and ellipsometry
IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2015-07-10)
Optical properties of Ga2SeS crystals grown by Bridgman method were investigated by transmission, reflection and ellipsometry measurements. Analysis of the transmission and reflection measurements performed in the wavelength range of 400-1100 nm at room temperature indicated the presence of indirect and direct transitions with 2.28 eV and 2.38 eV band gap energies. Ellipsometry measurements were carried out in the 1.2-6.0 eV spectral region to get information about optical constants, real and imaginary part...
Effective mass and peculiarity of optical properties of Cadmium Sulfide nanoparticles
Muradov, M. B.; Eyvazova, G. M.; Turan, Raşit; Maharramov, A. M. (2008-12-01)
X-ray diffraction data, electron microscope and optical properties of cadmium sulfide nanoparticles were analyzed. It is shown that the value of the reduced effective mass of charge carriers in nanoparticles differs from bulk crystals. Changes of effective mass and "red shift" in values of band gap are explained by the occurrence of additional electronic potential in nanoparticles.
Temperature-dependent optical properties of GaSe layered single crystals
IŞIK, MEHMET; TUĞAY, EVRİN; Gasanly, N. M. (2016-01-01)
Optical properties of GaSe single crystals have been investigated using temperature-dependent transmission and room temperature reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 380-1100nm. The analysis of the absorption data at room temperature showed the existence of indirect transitions in the crystal with energy band gap of 1.98eV. Temperature dependence of the transmission measurements revealed the shift of the absorption edge toward lower energy as temperature is increased from 10 to 280K. The rate o...
