In this work, direct growth of graphene is carried out on TiO2 (110) substrates by chemical vapor deposition. For few device applications, it is convenient to grow graphene directly on the dielectric substrates rather than metal foil to minimize transfer and surface interface defects. Raman spectrum support graphene growth on TiO2 substrate by exhibiting D and G peaks. Graphene covered the whole TiO2 substrate with few areas where higher growth of carbon atoms occurs. The contrast of SEM images clearly showed the non-homogeneous growth at some places on substrate. EDX showed the presence of carbon % for the graphene grown TiO2 (graphene-TiO2) substrate which is further supported by the atomic percentage of carbon obtained by XPS. XPS shows a shift of 0.36 eV in Fermi edge for the graphene-TiO2 as compared to bare heated TiO2 substrate which supports carbon interaction with TiO2. Atomic force microscope further provides the 3D view of graphene layers obtained on TiO2. The average height of graphene layers lies in 5-10 nm range and the size of uniform patches of same height lies in 200-600 nm range. The wide coverage of graphene obtained on TiO2 supports direct growth method for dielectrics, however, to obtain the uniform thickness over the whole substrate is still challenging.

Production of beta-rhombohedral boron carbide (B4C) on a tungsten substrate by the chemical vapor deposition from a BCl3-H-2-CH4 gas mixture was achieved. An impinging-jet reactor was used to minimize the mass-transfer limitations on the reaction kinetics, which made a detailed kinetic investigation possible. Results of the XRD and XPS analyses showed that the solid product formed on the substrate is a rhombohedral B4C phase. Both dichloroborane and boron carbide formation rates were found to increase with ...
Growth of nano-graphene on SrTiO3 (110) substrates by chemical vapour deposition
KARAMAT, SHUMAİLA; Celik, K.; Oral, Ahmet (2017-10-01)
Transfer of graphene from metal catalyst to dielectrics is a complicated procedure which affects the quality of graphene. In the present work, direct growth of graphene was established on strontium titanate (SrTiO3) substrates with the means of chemical vapour deposition (CVD). The graphene growth on catalyst free dielectric substrates were carried out for 3, 4 and 7 h at 1000 degrees C. Raman spectrum showed D, G and 2D peaks of graphene for the samples. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) was used to get a...
Catalytic partial oxidation of propylene on metal surfaces by means of quantum chemical methods
Kızılkaya, Ali Can; Önal, Işık; Department of Chemical Engineering (2010)
Direct, gas phase propylene epoxidation reactions are carried out on model slabs representing Ru-Cu(111) bimetallic and Cu(111) metallic catalyst surfaces with periodic Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations. Ru-Cu(111) surface is modelled as a Cu(111) monolayer totally covering the surface of Ru(0001) surface underneath. The catalytic activity is evaluated following the generally accepted oxametallacycle mechanism. It is shown that the Ru-Cu(111) surface has a lower energy barrier (0.48 eV) for the s...
Optical characterization of silicon based hydrogenated amorphous thin films by un-visible and infrared measurements
Kılıç, İlker; Katırcıoğlu, Bayram; Department of Physics (2006)
Various carbon content hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbide (a-Si1ŁxCx:H) and hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) thin films have been deposited on various substrates by using plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD) technique. Transmission spectra of these films have been determined within UV-Visible region and the obtained data were analysed to find related physical constants such as; refractive indices, thicknesses, etc. Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrometry technique has been u...
Critical behaviour of the thermodynamic quantities close to phase transitions in molecular crystals using raman data
Özdemir, Hilal; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Department of Physics (2017)
In this thesis we investigate the pressure and temperature dependence of the Raman frequencies for diffirent modes of benzene at ambient conditions (P=0 GPa and T=300 K). By using the experimental data we calculated the volume and frequency as a function of pressure at constant temperature and as a function of temperature at constant pressure, thus isothermal and isobaric mode Grüneisen parameter has been inferred in the diffrent modes. Our calculations show that calculated Raman frequencies agree well with...
