TlGaS2 layered single crystals have been an attractive research interest due to their convertible characteristics into 2D structure. In the present paper, structural, optical and thermoluminescence properties of TlGaS2 single crystals were investigated. XRD pattern of the crystal presented five well-defined peaks associated with monoclinic unit cell. Band gap and Urbach energies were found to be 2.57 and 0.25 eV, respectively, from the analyses of transmittance spectrum. Thermoluminescence measurements were carried out above room temperature up to 660 K at various heating rates. One TL peak with peak maximum temperature of 573 K was obtained in the TL spectrum at 1.0 K/s. Curve fitting, initial rise and variable heating rate methods were used for analyses. All of those resulted in presence of a deep trapping level with activation energy around 0.92 eV. Heating rate dependence of the TL peak was also studied and it was indicated that peak maximum temperature shifted to higher temperatures besides decreasing TL intensity as the higher heating rates were employed.

Thermoluminescence characteristics of Tl4GaIn3S8 layered single crystals
Delice, S.; IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2014-01-12)
The properties of trapping centres in - as grown - Tl4GaIn3S8 layered single crystals were investigated in the temperature range of 10-300K using thermoluminescence (TL) measurements. TL curve was analysed to characterize the defects responsible for the observed peaks. Thermal activation energies of the trapping centres were determined using various methods: curve fitting, initial rise and peak shape methods. The results indicated that the peak observed in the low-temperature region composed of many overlap...
Thermoluminescence in gallium sulfide crystals: an unusual heating rate dependence
DELİCE, SERDAR; Bulur, Enver; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2015-03-24)
Trap centres in gallium sulfide single crystals have been investigated by thermoluminescence measurements in the temperature range of 10-230K. A curve-fitting method was utilized to evaluate the activation energies (52, 200 and 304meV) of the revealed three trap centres. The heating rate dependence and trap distribution of the peaks have been studied using experimental techniques based on various heating rates and various illumination temperatures, respectively. An anomalous heating rate dependence of the h...
Defect characterization of Ga4Se3S layered single crystals by thermoluminescence
IŞIK, MEHMET; Delice, S.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2016-04-01)
Trapping centres in undoped Ga4Se3S single crystals grown by Bridgman method were characterized for the first time by thermoluminescence (TL) measurements carried out in the low-temperature range of 15-300 K. After illuminating the sample with blue light (similar to 470 nm) at 15 K, TL glow curve exhibited one peak around 74 K when measured with a heating rate of 0.4 K/s. The results of the various analysis methods were in good agreement about the presence of one trapping centre with an activation energy of...
Thermoluminescence in gallium sesquisulfide single crystals: usual and unusual heating rate dependencies
Güler, Işıkhan; Gasanova, L.; Mahammadov, A.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2018-01-01)
Thermoluminescence (TL) experiments were conducted for Ga2S3 crystals to obtain information about trapping parameters. TL measurements were performed from 10 to 300 K with varying heating rates in the range of 0.2-0.8 K/s. Two TL glow peaks centered at 44K (peak A) and 91 K (peak B) were observed at heating rate of beta=0.5 K/s. For peak A, TL intensity decreased whereas that for peak B increased with elevating the heating rates that means anomalous heating rate occurred for peak B. TL glow curves were anal...
Finite element analysis of laboratory model experiments on behavior of shallow foundations under general loading
Oktay, Hasan Emre; Bakır, Bahadır Sadık; Department of Civil Engineering (2012)
In this study, a series of laboratory model experiments carried on shallow foundations is intended to be simulated through numerical modeling. The laboratory model tests were conducted by Fukui et al. (2005), over square shaped, shallow surfacial foundations located over air-dried Toyoura sand. Tests included centered vertical and combined loading cases on sand with 60% and 80% relative densities. Plastic limit loads obtained from numerical analyses and available analytical solutions in literature are compa...
