Here, we systematically investigated the spontaneous and stimulated emission performances of solution-processed atomically flat quasi-2D nanoplatelets (NPLs) as a function of their lateral size using colloidal CdSe core NPLs. We found that the photoluminescence quantum efficiency of these NPLs decreases with increasing lateral size while their photoluminescence decay rate accelerates. This strongly suggests that nonradiative channels prevail in the NPL ensembles having extended lateral size, which is well-explained by the increasing number of the defected NPL subpopulation. In the case of stimulated emission the role of lateral size in NPLs influentially emerges both in the single- and two-photon absorption (1PA and 2PA) pumping. In the amplified spontaneous emission measurements, we uncovered that the stimulated emission thresholds of 1PA and 2PA exhibit completely opposite behavior with increasing lateral size. The NPLs with larger lateral sizes exhibited higher stimulated emission thresholds under 1PA pumping due to the dominating defected subpopulation in larger NPLs. On the other hand, surprisingly, larger NPLs remarkably revealed lower 2PA-pumped amplified spontaneous emission thresholds. This is attributed to the observation of a "giant" 2PA cross-section overwhelmingly growing with increasing lateral size and reaching record levels higher than 10(6) GM, at least an order of magnitude stronger than colloidal quantum dots and rods. These findings suggest that the lateral size control in the NPLs, which is commonly neglected, is essential to high-performance colloidal NPL optoelectronic devices in addition to the vertical monolayer control.


Thermal activation energy of crystal and amorphous nano-silicon in SiO2 matrix

Temperature and size dependence of photoluminescence (PL) of nano-silicon embedded in SiO2 matrix samples were studied. In these measurements, four samples with deferent implantation dose showed their similar tendency. Their nano-structure was investigated by high resolution electron microscopy (HREM) and selected area diffraction (SAD) which confirmed that only those prepared with the higher Si implantation dose formed crystal nano-silicon. The further analysis of the dependence of thermal activation energ...
Template-free microsphere and hollow sphere formation of polymethylanilines
Icli, Merve; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; CİHANER, ATİLLA (Wiley, 2009-06-01)
BACKGROUND: Microsphere and/or hollow sphere formation of methyl-substituted polyaniline derivatives was investigated via chemical polymerization where different sets of conditions were examined. It was found that a variety of parameters (e.g. types and concentrations of monomer and oxidant, polymerization time, solvent with and without acid) have a crucial influence on the morphology of the resulting polyaniline derivatives.
Excimer emission and energy transfer in cofacial boradiazaindacene (BODIPY) dimers built on a xanthene scaffold
Saki, N; Dinc, T; Akkaya, EU (2006-03-13)
Using a rigid xanthene scaffold, a series of boradiazaindacene derivatives were synthesized. In some of these compounds, two boradiazaindacene derivatives were placed cofacially, resulting in significant inter-chromophoric interactions, including excimer emission. A simple modification of boradiazaindacene structure leads to formation of an ICT dye, which has distinct spectral properties. Energy transfer between two BODIPY dyes was demonstrated as well. In addition, the spectral properties of ICT dye can be...
Quantum mechanical calculation of nitrous oxide decomposition on transition metals
Karaöz, Muzaffer Kaan; Önal, Işık; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
Nitrous oxide decomposition on Ag51, Au51, Pt22, Rh51 and Ir51 clusters representing (111) surface were studied quantum mechanically by using the method of ONIOM with high layer DFT region and low layer of molecular mechanics region utilizing universal force field (UFF). The basis set employed in the DFT calculations is the Los Alamos LANL2DZ effective core pseudo-potentials (ECP) for silver, gold, platinum, rhodium and iridium and 3-21G** for nitrogen, oxygen and hydrogen. Nitrous oxide was decomposed on t...
Vortex states in mesoscopic single crystals Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+delta in high magnetic fields
Mirkovic, J.; Kubo, Y.; Saitou, T.; Kakeya, I.; Yamamoto, T.; Oral, Ahmet; Kadowaki, K. (2009-08-01)
The c-axis resistivity measurements were performed in the vicinity of the ab-plane in order to investigate the interaction between Josephson vortices and pancake vortices in Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+delta mesoscopic single crystals. It was found that the angular dependence of the c-axis resistivity drastically changes in high magnetic field regime. The vortex lock-in transition becomes considerably broad in high magnetic fields, while the angular dependence of resistance exhibits the sharp lock-in features in low magn...
