Temperature dependence of absorption edge in p-type porous silicon

The observed blue shift of both the PL and the absorption edge in porous silicon is generally understood within the framework of quantum confinement of carriers in small crystallites where reduction of the density of states in the vicinity of c-Si band edge as well as increased oscillator strength, lead to higher direct radiation rates. Temperature dependence of transitions in semiconductors may provide additional information to clarify the nature of the recombination mechanism in porous silicon. In this work, we have studied the temperature dependence of the absorption edge of free standing porous films in the photon range of 3.1-1.35 eV and in the temperature range of 8.5-300 K. We find a smoothly varying spectral dependence of transmission on photon energy without any sharp features down to 8.5 K. The absorption edge for all samples studied show a gradual blue shift with decreasing temperature. Comparison with c-Si shows that red luminescing porous Si preserves the indirect nature of the c-Si band gap.


Temperature dependence of the polarization and the dielectric constant near the paraelectric-ferroelectric transitions in BaTiO3
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-09-01)
Temperature dependences of the spontaneous polarization and the dielectric constant are calculated near the paraelectric-ferroelectric (cubic-tetragonal) transition in BaTiO3 using our mean field model. By expanding the free energy in terms of the spontaneous polarization (order parameter), expressions for the temperature dependence of the spontaneous polarization and the dielectric constant are derived. By considering the temperature dependence of the Raman frequencies for the lattice mode (310 cm(-1)) whi...
Temperature Dependence of the Spontaneous Polarization and the Dielectric Susceptibility near the Phase Transitions in Ammonium Sulfate
Sen, S.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Kavruk, D. (2010-01-01)
Spontaneous polarization and the dielectric susceptibility are calculated as a function of temperature close to the paraelectric-ferroelectric phase transition (T-C=223 K) in (NH4)(2)SO4 This calculation is performed using a mean field model by fitting the expressions derived for the dielectric susceptibility to the experimental data for the dielectric constant at the fixed frequencies of 100, 500 and 2000 Hz in ammonium sulfate
Temperature dependence of the energy transfer from amorphous silicon nitride to Er ions
Li, R.; Yerci, Selçuk; Dal Negro, L. (2009-07-27)
The 1.54 mu m photoluminescence and decay time of Er-doped amorphous silicon nitride films with different Si concentrations are studied in the temperature range of 4 to 320 K. The temperature quenching of the Er emission lifetime demonstrates the presence of nonradiative trap centers due to excess Si in the films. The temperature dependence and the dynamics of the energy coupling between amorphous silicon nitride and Er ions are investigated at different temperatures using two independent methods, which dem...
Temperature dependence of the Raman-active phonon frequencies in indium sulfide
Hasanlı, Nızamı; Aydinli, A; Yilmaz, I (1999-01-01)
The temperature dependence of the Raman-active mode frequencies in indium sulfide was measured in the range from 10 to 300 K. The analysis of the temperature dependence of the A(g) intralayer optical modes show that Raman frequency shift results from the change of harmonic frequency with volume expansion and anharmonic coupling to phonons of other branches. The pure-temperature contribution (phonon-phonon coupling) is due to three- and four-phonon processes.
Temperature -dependent optical and electrical characterization of Cu-Ga-S thin films and their diode characteristics on n-Si
Gullu, H. H.; Isik, M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Parlak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2020-04-01)
In this paper, optical and electrical properties of thermally deposited Cu-Ga-S thin films were investigated using temperature-dependent optical transmission and electrical conductivity measurements. The analysis of the transmission spectra resulted in formation of three direct optical transitions due to the possible valence band splitting in the structure. The band gap values were calculated by means of absorption coefficient and incident photon energy was found in decreasing behavior as the temperature ri...
