    Single crystals of AgGaSe2-GeSe2 γ-solid solutions are investigated. The AgxGaxGe1 − xSe2 (0.12 ≤ x ≤ 0.25) solid solutions are anisotropic p-type semiconductors with a 290-K band gap of about 0.26 eV. The high defect density in the crystals results in static disordering and...

    Based on a nonpolar polymer-i.e., high-density polyethylene, polar polyvinylidene fluoride, and di-Ï€-cyclopentadienyl iron (Ï€-(CH)Fe, ferrocene)-matrix composites are obtained that exhibit the conductivity photoquenching effect. Charge states and photoelectret and photoconductive...

    We show that the non-equilibrium dynamic in two-dimensional hopping insulators close to metal-dielectric transition is sensitive to electric fields confinement inside the sample, which leads to a nearly thermally activated conductance behavior and a strong non-equilibrium conductance response to...

    Crystalline grains of type IIa natural diamond (the average grain mass is ∼1 mg) are studied after their irradiation with neutrons in a nuclear reactor at a neutron fluence of ∼1021cm–2. The irradiation is found to bring about a decrease in the macroscopic density of the grains...

    We report that the dependence of the lifetime of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) thin-film transistors (TFTs) versus channel sheet resistance (Rsheet) exhibits two distinctly different regimes. At low Rsheet (high gate electric field) the lifetime is strongly dependent on Rsheet,...

  • Influence of Ge substrate crystallinity on Co germanide formation in solid-state reactions. Opsomer, K.; Deduytsche, D.; Detavernier, C.; Van Meirhaeghe, R. L.; Lauwers, A.; Maex, K.; Lavoie, C. // Applied Physics Letters;1/15/2007, Vol. 90 Issue 3, p031906 

    A strong influence of substrate crystallinity is observed for thin-film Co/Ge reactions. For the detected phases (CoGe, Co5Ge7, and CoGe2), the formation temperatures on amorphous Ge (a-Ge) are found to be the lowest, while the highest are on single-crystalline Ge(100). Moreover, while the phase...
