We have investigated the structural, electronic, and optical properties of Zn1-xCaxSe ternary alloys using first principles calculations within the plane-wave pseudopotential method. Some basic physical properties, such as lattice constant, bulk modulus, electronic band structures, and optical properties (dielectric functions, refractive index, and energy loss function) were calculated. In addition, the effects of composition x on bulk modulus, band gap, refractive index and dielectric function were calculated. Our results agree well with the available data in the literature.

The electronic band structure of III (in, al, ga)-v (n, as, sb) compounds and ternary alloys
Mohammad, Rezek Mahmoud Salim; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay; Department of Physics (2005)
In this work, the electronic band structure of III (In, Al, Ga) - V (N, As, Sb) compounds and their ternary alloys have been investigated by density functional theory (DFT) within generalized gradient approximation (GGA) and empirical tight binding (ETB) calculations, respectively. The present DFT-GGA calculations have shown direct band gap structures in zinc-blende phase for InN, InAs, InSb, GaN, and GaAs. However, indirect band gap structures have been obtained for cubic AlN, AlSb and AlAs com- pounds; he...
The investigation of electronic, anisotropic elastic and lattice dynamical properties of MAB phase nanolaminated ternary borides: M 2 AlB 2 ( M = Mn , Fe and Co ) under spin effects

In the present study, the structural, electronic, magnetic, anisotropic elastic and lattice dynamic properties of the ternary metal borides (, and ) known as MAB phases have been investigated by density functional theory. The obtained results from the structural optimizations show that all these compounds have negative formation enthalpy implying the thermodynamic stability and synthesizability. The spin effects on the phases have been studied with the plotted energy-volume curves for different magnetic pha...
The electronic band structures of InNxAs1-x, InNxSb1-x and InAsxSb1-x, alloys
Mohammad, Rezek; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (Elsevier BV, 2009-02-05)
The band cap bowings of InNxAs1-x, InNxSb1-x, and InAsxSb1-x alloys defined by the optimized lattice constants are investigated using empirical tight binding (ETB) method. The present ETB energy parameters which take the nearest neighbor interactions into account with sp(3)d(2) basis are determined to be sufficient to provide a typical feature for the band gap bowings of the alloys. The band gap bowing parameter is found to be relatively large in both InNxAs1-x and InNxSb1-x compared to InAsxSb1-x alloys. M...
A theoretical study of chemical doping and width effect on zigzag graphene nanoribbons
Pekoz, Rengin; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2009-12-01)
The energetics and the electronic properties of nitrogen- and boron-doped graphene nanoribbons with zigzag edges have been investigated using density functional theory calculations. For the optimized geometry configurations, vibrational frequency analysis and wavefunction stability tests have been carried out. Different doping site optimizations for a model nanoribbon have been performed and formation energy values of these sites revealed that zigzag edgesite for both of the dopants were the most favorable ...
The structural and electronic properties of BN and BP compounds and BNxP1-x alloys
Mohammad, Rezek; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (Elsevier BV, 2009-06-10)
The structural and electronic properties of BN and BP compounds and BNxP1-x alloys have been investigated by full potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method based on density functional theory (DFT). The total energies and electronic band structures of these compounds have been calculated for different approximations of exchange-correlation energy. The comparative study has showed that the Perdew-Wang-generalized gradient approximation (PW-GGA) is the best one to produce the measured structur...
