Effect of the number of cycles on the optical and structural properties of Mn3O4 nanostructures obtained by SILAR technique

Ozer, Mustafa Murat
In this study, nanostructured Mn3O4 (manganese oxide) thin films were successfully obtained by successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) method on the soda lime glass substrates using Manganese Nitrate (Mn(NO3)(2)) and Ammonium hydroxide (NH4(OH)) as cationic and anionic precursors respectively. Structural and morphological characterizations of the Mn3O4 films obtained at different cycles were determined using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The crystal structure of the thin films were also confirmed by RAMAN spectroscopy. Optical properties such as absorption, transmission, reflection, extinction coefficient and optical band gap of nanostructured Mn3O4 thin films were determined by UV-Vis spectroscopy. SEM images showed that the manganese oxide nanosheets formed uniformly on substrate surface. As the deposition cycles increased, nano-sheets structure deteriorated. The optical band gap of Mn3O4 thin films varied from 2.12 to 2.59 eV, depending on the increase in number of cycles. From contact angle measurements of thin films, it was determined that thin films had hydrophilic character.

Ogun, SE; Ozkan, H; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2003-06-01)
The effect of Li addition on the formation and properties of Pb containing Bi-based superconductors has been studied. Three successive thermal sintering cycles have been applied to the oxides adjusted for the nominal composition, Bi1.6Pb0.4Sr2CaCu2O8+d. Eight different samples having Li2CO3 from 0.0 up to 3.0 weight% have been synthesized, X-ray diffraction patterns, resistivity-temperature behaviors and differential thermal analysis of the samples have been examined. Li2CO3 addition at 650degreesC decrease...
Effect of thermal neutron irradiation in boron-doped melt-textured YBCO superconductors
Topal, U; Dorosinskii, L; Ozkan, H; Yavuz, H (Elsevier BV, 2003-05-01)
Y1.6Ba2.3Cu3.3Ox superconductors with different amounts of boron doping have been synthesized using the MPMG technique. Undoped and boron-doped samples were irradiated with thermal neutrons to study the effect of defects produced by the fission reaction, B(n,alpha)Li, on the pinning and the critical current. We observed that the pinning and the critical current density were improved as a result of thermal neutron irradiation. This improvement was slightly stronger for the boron-doped samples compared to the...
Effects of tail states on the conduction mechanisms in silicon carbide thin films with high carbon content
SEL, KIVANÇ; AKAOĞLU, BARIŞ; Atilgan, Ismail; Katircioglu, Bayram (Elsevier BV, 2011-03-01)
Hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbide (a-SiCx:H) films of different carbon content (x) were deposited by radio frequency plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) system. Apart from the X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and UV-Visible transmission analyses, the resistivity measurements between 293 K and 450 K were emphasized to assess the eventual transport mechanisms. The film resistivities are unexpectedly found relatively low, especially for high carbon content. In the frame of exclusive ba...
Carbon content influence on the optical constants of hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbon alloys
Akaoglu, B.; Sel, K.; Atilgan, I.; Katircioglu, B. (Elsevier BV, 2008-04-01)
Hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbon alloys (a-Si1-xCx:H) with different carbon contents are deposited by a plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) system with different hydrogen diluted ethylene (C2H4) concentrations at two power densities of 30 and 90 mW/cm(2). First, the carbon and hydrogen configurations and their relative concentrations in these films are investigated in details by IR spectroscopy. Then, the ultraviolet/visible transmittance spectroscopy and a relevant characterization softw...
The effect of Ga/In ratio and annealing temperature on the nonlinear absorption behaviors in amorphous TlGaxIn(1-x)S2 (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) chalcogenide thin films
Ünlü, Bekir Asilcan; Karatay, Ahmet; Yüksek, Mustafa; Ünver, Hüseyin; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Elmali, Ayhan (Elsevier BV, 2020-08-01)
The amorphous semiconductor TlGaxIn(1-x)S2 (0 <= x <= 1) chalcogenide thin films were prepared with 70 nm thicknesses by using vacuum evaporation technique. The nonlinear absorption properties of the films were studied by Z-scan technique. The energy band gap values were calculated by using linear absorption spectra. The effect of Ga/In ratio leads to increase 0.22 eV in band gap energy. To derive the transmission in open aperture Z-scan data, a theoretical model incorporating two photon and free carrier ab...
