In this study, the effects of the nanowire geometry on Si wafer substrate were investigated for the SnSe/Si-nanowire heterojunction device and the obtained results were compared with the one fabricated on planar Si surface. Nanowires on Si surface were produced by metal-assisted etching method and the SnSe film layer was deposited by thermal evaporation technique. On both Si and glass surfaces, deposited film shows polycrystalline and single SnSe phase. From optical transmission measurements, optical band gap of this film was determined as 1.36 eV in a good agreement with the literature. All SnSe/Si heterostructures were found in a p-n diode behavior and the ideality factor and series resistance values were calculated as 2.40, 547 Omega, and 3.71, 1.57 x 10(3) Omega, for SnSe/Si-nanowire and SnSe/Si heterojunctions, respectively. As a result, an improvement in device characteristics concerning the planar Si structure was found by utilizing Si nanowire structure.


Investigation of photovoltaic properties of amorphous InSe thin film based Schottky devices
Yilmaz, K.; Parlak, Mehmet; Ercelebi, C. (IOP Publishing, 2007-12-01)
In this study, device behavior of amorphous InSe thin films was investigated through I-V, C-V and spectral response measurements onto SnO2/p-InSe/metal Schottky diode structures. Various metal contacts such as Ag, Au, Al, In and C were deposited onto amorphous p-InSe films by the thermal evaporation technique. The best rectifying contact was obtained in a SnO2/p-InSe/Ag Schottky structure from I-V measurements, while the Au contact had poor rectification. Other metal contacts (Al, In and C) showed almost oh...
Structural properties of a-Si films and their effect on aluminum induced crystallization
Tankut, Aydin; Karaman, Mehmet; Ozkol, Engin; Canlı, Sedat; Turan, Raşit (2015-10-01)
In this paper, we report the influence of the structural properties of amorphous silicon (a-Si) on its subsequent crystallization behavior via the aluminum induced crystallization (AIC) method. Two distinct a-Si deposition techniques, electron beam evaporation and plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD), are compared for their effect on the overall AIC kinetics as well as the properties of the final poly-crystalline (poly-Si) silicon film. Raman and FTIR spectroscopy results indicate that the PECV...
Experimental and numerical study of spring-in angle in corner shaped composite parts
Çiçek, Kerem Furkan; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve; Kayran, Altan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
In this study, spring-in problem encountered in corner shaped composite parts which are made of Hexcel’s AS4/8552 unidirectional (UD) prepregs is investigated. For that purpose, a simple two dimensional (2-D) geometrical model available in the literature is implemented and spring-in is calculated according to this model. Then using autoclave process, U-shaped composite parts are manufactured and spring-in measurements are performed on these parts. Finally, a three dimensional (3-D) numerical model in ABAQUS...
Durability of PEM fuel cell electrocatalysts prepared by microwave irradiation technique
Sayin, Elif Seda; BAYRAKÇEKEN YURTCAN, Ayşe; Eroğlu, İnci (2012-11-01)
In this study, the durability of the PEM fuel cell electrocatalysts was investigated by using cyclic voltammetry (CV) and rotating disk electrode (RDE) techniques. Accelerated degradation tests (ADTs) were applied to the commercial catalysts and the electrocatalysts prepared by microwave irradiation technique in order to determine the platinum dissolution/agglomeration and carbon corrosion characteristics. The parameters examined for the commercial catalysts were carbon to Nafion (C/N) ratio in the catalyst...

Yigiterol, Fatih; Güllü, Hasan Hüseyin; YILDIZ, DİLBER ESRA (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-06-01)
In this study, the effect of insulator layer on the electrical characteristics of Au/n-4H SiC diode was investigated. The current-voltage (), capacitance-voltage () and conductance-voltage () measurements were carried out at room temperature condition. Under thermionic emission model, electrical parameters as zero-bias barrier height (), ideality factor (n), interface states (), and series () and shunt () resistances were estimated from forward bias analyses. The values of n and were about 1.305 and 0.796 e...
