Low-resistance ohmic contacts in AlGaN/GaN high-electron-mobility transistor (HEMT) devices require high-temperature (HT) annealing (>800 C) which can deteriorate material quality, surface morphology, and edge acuity of the metal stacks. This article demonstrates the high-frequency and high-power performance of the AlGaN/GaN HEMT devices with low-temperature metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) regrown degenerately doped InGaN ohmic contacts compared with GaN-based regrown contacts. Ohmic contacts fabricated by regrowth methods could be a valuable alternative for both metal-based alloyed ohmic contacts and implantation-based ohmic contacts. Using a T-gate and MOCVD regrown InGaN ohmic contacts, the AlGaN/GaN HEMT with an L-g of 150 nm and S-D spacing of 2.5 mu m demonstrated a maximum drain current of 0.94 A/mm and a peak transconductance of 337 mS/mm. The same device exhibited a forward current gain frequency f(t) of 36.8 GHz and a maximum frequency of oscillation f(max) of 75.0 GHz. A power density of 3.07 W/mm with a 60% drain efficiency was measured at 35 GHz with a V-ds of 20 V and a quiescent current of 100 mA/mm.

Synthesis of new conducting polymers is desired since their electrochemical and optical properties enable them to be used as active layers in many device applications. Benzotriazole and N-functionalized 2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (SNS Series) containing polymers showed very promising results as electrochromic materials. In order to observe the effect of the combination of these two units, three new monomers; 2-(6-(2,5-bis(5-methylthiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrol-1-yl)hexyl)-4,7-di(thiophen-2-yl)-2H benzo[d][1,2,3...
Colloidal CdSe Quantum Wells with Graded Shell Composition for Low-Threshold Amplified Spontaneous Emission and Highly Efficient Electroluminescence
Keleştemur, Yusuf; Anni, Marco; Yakunin, Sergii; De Giorgi, Maria Luisa; Kovalenko, Maksym V. (2019-12-01)
Semiconductor nanoplatelets (NPLs) have emerged as a very promising class of colloidal nanocrystals for light-emitting devices owing to their quantum-well-like electronic and optical characteristics. However, their lower photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY) and limited stability have hampered the realization of their outstanding luminescent properties in device applications. Here, to address these deficiencies, we present a two-step synthetic approach that enables the synthesis of core/shell NPLs with pre...

Anutgan, Mustafa; Katırcıoğlu, Bayram; Department of Physics (2010)
The production of low cost, large area display systems requires a light emitting material compatible with the standard silicon (Si) based complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology. The crystalline bulk Si is an indirect band semiconductor with very poor optical properties. On the other hand, hydrogenated amorphous Si (a-Si:H) based wide gap alloys exhibit strong visible photoluminescence (PL) at room temperature, owing to the release of the momentum conservation law. Still, the electrolumine...
Ternary nanocomposites of low density, high density and linear low density polyethylenes with the compatibilizers E-MA-GMA and E-BA-MAh
Işık Coşkunses, Fatma; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Department of Chemical Engineering (2011)
The effects of polyethylene, (PE), type, compatibilizer type and organoclay type on the morphology, rheological, thermal, and mechanical properties of ternary low density polyethylene (LDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE), and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), matrix nanocomposites were investigated in this study. Ethylene – Methyl acrylate – Glycidyl methacrylate terpolymer (E-MAGMA) and Ethylene – Butyl acrylate- Maleic anhydrate terpolymer (E-BA-MAH) were used as the compatibilizers. The organo...
Combined effects of ALS and SLS on Al2O3 reinforced composite nickel coatings
Yılmaz, Olgun; Karakaya, I. (Informa UK Limited, 2020-05-03)
The mechanical and tribological properties of electrochemical coatings can be enhanced by the embedded second phase particles to nickel matrix. Two different anionic surfactants sodium dodecyl sulfate and ammonium lignosulfonate were used together to adjust the wetting conditions and provide the suspension of Al2O3 particles in a nickel sulfamate electrolyte in this study. The effects of current density and amounts of the two surfactants on wear rate, coefficient of friction, and hardness were studied. It w...
