Temperature-dependent thermoelastic properties of GaSb and InSb semiconductors: Identification through ab initio DFT simulations

Baloğlu, Eyüp Can

© 2022 Elsevier B.V.III–V semiconductors are extensively used in infrared sensor applications due to their superior structural and optical properties. Due to the extremes in the manufacturing and operating temperatures of the sensors, the knowledge of temperature-dependent elastic constants of these materials is of great importance. However, reliable measurements across a large range of temperatures prove difficult due to limitations of experimental setups. Density functional theory calculations present an affordable alternative. In this work, temperature-dependent elastic properties of InSb and GaSb are investigated using density functional theory within the quasiharmonic approximation. Calculated properties relevant for operation in a wide temperature range are presented including second order elastic constants, Young's modulus (E), shear modulus (μ), Poisson's ratio ν and the coefficient of thermal expansion (α). Our results are compared to available experimental values and good agreement is observed.

Analytical Fresnel imaging models for photon sieves
Öktem, Sevinç Figen; Davila, Joseph M. (The Optical Society, 2018-11-21)
Photon sieves are a fairly new class of diffractive lenses that open unprecedented possibilities for high resolution imaging and spectroscopy, especially at short wavelengths such as UV and x-rays. In this paper, we model and analyze the image formation process of photon sieves using Fourier optics. We derive closed-form Fresnel imaging models that relate an input object to the image formed by a photon sieve system, both for coherent and incoherent illumination. These analytical models also provide a closed...

Sakarya, Ufuk (2015-05-19)
Thermal infrared hyperspectral image processing has become an important research topic in remote sensing. One of the research topics in thermal infrared hyperspectral image classification is dimension reduction. In this paper, thermal infrared hyperspectral dimension reduction experiment results for global and local information based linear discriminant analysis is presented. Advantages of the use of not only global pattern information, but also local pattern information are tested in thermal infrared hyper...

High performance focal plane array technologies from short to long wavelength infrared bands
Arslan, Yetkin; Beşikci, Cengiz; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This thesis work covers the development of three different state of the art infrared sensor technologies: quantum well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs), HgCdTe sensors and extended InGaAs photodetectors. QWIP is the leading member of the quantum structure infrared photodetector family providing excellent uniformity and stability with field proven performance. The utilization of the InP/In0.48Ga0.52As multi-quantum well structure (instead of the standard AlGaAs/GaAs material system) for the implementation of ...
Thermal effects of gate connected field-plates and surface passivation on AlGaN/GaN HEMTs
Kara, Doğacan; Okutucu Özyurt, Hanife Tuba; Dönmezer, Nazlı; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2018)
AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) are widely preferred in automotive, space, and military applications due to their superior electrical and thermal properties. However, when operated in full capacity, their electrical reliability drops significantly due to electron collapse, device degradation, concentrated heating, and mechanical stresses. To increase the reliability and maximum performance of GaN HEMTs, field-plate and surface passivation technologies are used frequently. Although signi...
