Bi12MO20 (M: Si, Ge, Ti, etc.) compounds are known as sillenites having fascinating photorefractive characteristics. The present paper reports the structural and optical characteristics of one of the members of this family, Bi12TiO20 single crystals, grown by Czochralski method. X-ray diffraction pattern of the crystal presented sharp and intensive peaks associated with planes of cubic crystalline structure with lattice constant of a = 1.0142 nm. The optical properties were studied by means of room temperature Raman and temperature-dependent transmission experiments at various temperatures between 10 and 300 K. Raman spectrum indicated peaks around 127, 162, 191, 219, 261, 289, 321, 497 and 537 cm(-1). The analyses of transmittance spectra indicated the increase of direct bandgap energy from 2.30 to 2.56 eV as temperature was decreased from room temperature to 10 K. The temperature-dependent bandgap characteristics of Bi12TiO20 were analyzed by means of Varshni and O'Donnell-Chen models. The analyses under the light of these models resulted in absolute zero bandgap energy of E-g(0) = 2.56(4) eV, rate of change of bandgap energy of gamma = - 1.11 x 10(-3) eV/K and average phonon energy of < E-ph & rang; = 8.6 meV.

Bi12XO20 (X: Si, Ge, Ti, etc.) ternary compounds have attracted attention especially due to their fascinating photorefractive characteristics. The present paper introduces the structural and optical characteristics of Bi12TiO20 single crystals grown by Czochralski method. X-ray diffraction pattern of the compound exhibited sharp and intensive peaks corresponding to parallel planes of cubic crystalline structure. The lattice constant of the cubic structure was determined as a = 1.0118 nm using a diffraction ...

Electrochemical copolymerization of 1-(phenyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (PTP) with 3,4-ethylenedioxy thiophene (EDOT) was carried out in acetonitrile (AN)/NaClO4/LiClO4 (0-1 M) solvent-electrolyte couple via potentiodynamic electrolysis. Characterizations of the resulting copolymer were performed via cyclic voltammetry (CV), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and spectroelectrochemical analysis. Spectroelectrochemical analyses show that the copolymer of P...

In/Cu2ZnSnTe4/Si/Ag diode structure was fabricated by sputtering Cu2ZnSnTe4 (CZTTe) thin film layer on the Si layer with In front contact. The frequency dependent room temperature capacitance and conductance measurements were carried out to obtain detailed information of its electrical characteristics. Admittance spectra of the diode exhibited strong frequency dependence and the obtained values showed decreasing behavior with the increase in the applied frequency. The effect of interfacial film layer with s...

Yigiterol, F.; Güllü, Hasan Hüseyin; Bayraklı, Özge; YILDIZ, DİLBER ESRA (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-05-01)
Electrical characteristics of the Au/Si3N4/4H n-SiC metal–insulator-semiconductor (MIS) diode were investigated under the temperature, T, interval of 160–400 K using current–voltage (I–V), capacitance–voltage (C−V) and conductance–voltage (G/ω−V) measurements. Firstly, the Schottky diode parameters as zero-bias barrier height (ΦB0) and ideality factor (n) were calculated according to the thermionic emission (TE) from forward bias I–V analysis in the whole working T. Experimental results showed that the valu...

Chae, J; Külah, Haluk; Najafi, K (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2004-08-01)
A high-sensitivity, low-noise in-plane (lateral) capacitive silicon microaccelerometer utilizing a combined surface and bulk micromachining technology is reported. The accelerometer utilizes a 0.5-mm-thick, 2.4 x 1.0 mm(2) proof-mass and high aspect-ratio vertical polysilicon sensing electrodes fabricated using a trench refill process. The electrodes are separated from the proof-mass by a 1.1-mum sensing gap formed using a sacrificial oxide layer. The measured device sensitivity is 5.6 pF/g. A CMOS readout ...
