  • Effect of a Magnetic Field on Impurity Light Absorption Spectra of 1D Semiconductor Structures

    A periodic semiconductor structure is considered, consisting of tunnel-uncoupled quantum wires (QW) based on InSb containing impurity centers. The uniform magnetic field is directed along the QW axis. For the case of light polarization transverse with respect to the QW axis in the framework of the dipole approximation, in the effective mass approximation, an analytical expression for the impurity absorption coefficient of light is obtained taking into account the dispersion of the QW radius described by the Gauss function. It is shown that on the spectral curve constructed in the Maple program, for given parameters of the QW and the semiconductor structure, there is a sequence of resonant maxima with a doublet structure. The cyclotron frequency determines the distance between the maxima in the doublet, and the frequency of the doublets on the spectral curve is determined by the hybrid frequency. With an increase in the magnetic field, the dynamics of the edge of the impurity absorption band is observed, which can be used to create detectors of optical radiation in a wide range of wavelengths and will make it possible to identify such semiconductor structures. It is also possible to obtain valuable information about the parameters of the QW and the band structure of the semiconductor from the spectral curve

  • Magnetooptical Properties of 1D InSb-Based Structures with Impurity Centers and the Kane Dispersion Law

    A semiconductor quantum wire (QW) containing an impurity center described in the framework of a hydrogen-like model is considered. The possibility of using InSb QW in photodetectors of infrared optical radiation is discussed. The QW is modeled as a geometrically symmetric cylinder, on the axis of which an impurity center is located at an arbitrary point, with which the origin of the cylindrical coordinate system is associated, in which calculations are performed. It is assumed that the magnetic length is much smaller than the effective Bohr radius - the case of a strong magnetic field. This approximation made it possible to make the impurity potential effectively one-dimensional and obtain analytically accurate calculation results. In the effective mass approximation, in the dipole approximation, an expression is obtained for the matrix elements of the optical transitions of an electron from the impurity ground state to the size-quantized QW states for the case of transverse light polarization and the Kane dispersion law of charge carriers.

  • Ferroalloy piezoceramic material based on PZT, electrophysical and mechanical properties in a wide temperature range

    The electrophysical and mechanical properties of a piezoceramic material based on CTS are investigated. A number of features in the behavior of the electrophysical properties of the material in the temperature range located significantly below the low-frequency (1 kHz) maximum of the dielectric constant T_m = 160℃ have been revealed. The obtained results indicate the proximity of the studied material to ferroelectric relaxors, in particular, the low coercive field E_c~5 kVcmcm, the significant dependence of T_m on the frequency and amplitude of the measuring field, as well as the behavior of the velocity of longitudinal ultrasonic waves in this ceramic. It is shown that the elastic properties of this material are very close to ferroelectric relaxors, having a high malleability in a very wide temperature range. At the same time, the squareness of the polarization loops at relatively low temperatures indicates the manifestation of the classical properties of the ferroelectric during the polarization switching processes, and not the "freezing" processes characteristic of ferroelectric relaxors. From the results obtained, it can be established that this composition will be promising for use in the actuators of adaptive optics systems and precision positioning devices due to the high values of piezomodules.

  • Intraband optical absorption induced by Rashba spin-orbit coupling in two-dimensional electron gas

    Semiconductor heterostructures in which the spin-orbit interaction is associated with the absence of a center of symmetry that limits the potential of the structure are the basis for future spintronics devices. One of the main methods for investigating into spin properties is the study of optical phenomena in magnetic fields. The article theoretically consider the effect of spin-orbit interaction on absorption in quantum wells, in particular, the intraband magnetic absorption of electromagnetic radiation of linear polarization by a two-dimensional electron gas with Rashba spin-orbit interaction. The coefficient of light absorption by free carriers in the quasi-two-dimensional system was calculated in the second order of perturbation theory. It is assumed that infrared electromagnetic radiation is absorbed in a quasi-two-dimensional system by free carriers, that are scattered by optical, piezoelectric, and acoustic lattice vibrations.

We calculated the light absorption spectra of 2D electron gas for GaAs / In0.23Ga0.77As lattice structures.

  • Investigation of the influence of the parameters of the Gunn diode and the inhomogeneity of doping on its operating modes with the help of a physico-topological model

    When modeling the transport of hot carriers in strong electric fields and using various mathematical relationships describing these processes, usually do not take into account inhomogeneities of impurity doping, which affect the field distribution and the density of the output current. In this paper, we calculated the field distribution along the length of the diode chip. In this case, a one-dimensional model and a phenomenological approach to the description of carrier behavior were used. The results obtained allow one to estimate the influence of the inhomogeneity on the operating modes of the Gunn diode and can be used to create models of higher orders.

  • Numerical simulation of laser annealing of a thin amorphous silicon film for solar cells

    Numerical modeling of the temperature distribution during heating (annealing) by a pulsed Nd: YAG laser of an amorphous silicon (a-Si) film on the surface of an AZO glass substrate is carried out. The simulation was performed on the basis of a numerical solution of the heat equation in the Matlab program to determine the energy density of the laser radiation necessary for crystallization of the a-Si film. For a wavelength of 1064 nm, it was obtained that the temperature at the surface of the a-Si film reaches a maximum value at a time point of 146 ns with a laser pulse with a Gaussian time-shape. It is shown that for the crystallization of an a-Si film with a thickness of about 800 nm with laser radiation with a nanosecond pulse duration, the optimum energy density is 600-700 mJ / cm2 when the temperature across the thickness of the a-Si film corresponds to 550-1250 ° C.

  • Numerical study of the heat sink with a change in the aggregate state of the working substance

    In the article, a numerical study of the heat sink with a change in the aggregate state of the oil is carried out. Simulation was carried out in Ansys Fluent CAD for two modes, static - with constant heating of the oil at 340K and dynamic, at which the heating temperature varied with time from 340K to 270K. Heat transfer in the event of a change in the aggregate state of a substance is widely used in cases where it is necessary to achieve the maximum efficiency of heat exchange. In this case, the energy is expended on the phase transition of the substance, for example, to evaporation from the liquid phase. The advantage of the heat-sink design described in this work is a rather high rate of heat transfer, greater resistance to various influences, including mechanical ones, which is primarily ensured by the simplicity of construction, eliminating the drawbacks of classical designs, which are cumbersome (the presence of an external cooling circuit ) and the limited rate of heat transfer.
