Influence of Mn doping on CuGaS2 single crystals grown by CVT method and their characterization

1 and 2 mole% of Mn doped CuGaS2 (CGS) single crystals were grown by the chemical vapour transport (CVT) technique using iodine as the transporting agent. The analysis of the single crystal x-ray diffraction data suggests that the doping of 1 and 2 mole% Mn in the CGS single crystal does not affect the tetragonal (chalcopyrite) crystal structure. The optical absorption spectrum shows that the Mn ion induces a very strong absorption band in the UV–visible–near IR regions. The values of the crystal parameter (Dq) and the Racah parameter (B) calculated from the absorption spectra show d electron delocalization in the host crystal CGS. Room temperature photoluminescence spectra of undoped CGS only exhibited a band–band emission. But 1 and 2 mole% Mn doped CGS single crystals show two distinct CGS and Mn2+ related emissions, both of which are excited via the CGS host lattice. Raman spectra of 1 and 2 mole% Mn doped CGS single crystals exhibit a high intensity peak of the A1 mode at 310 cm−1 and 300 cm−1, respectively. EDAX, optical absorption and Raman spectrum studies reveal that Mn2+ ions are substituted in the Ga3+ ions and incorporated into the CGS lattice. The magnetization of Mn doped CGS single crystals was measured as a function of the magnetic field and temperature. Paramagnetic behaviour typical of spin S = 5/2 expected for Mn2+(d5) magnetic centres was observed in the temperature range 2 K < T < 300 K. In Mn doping, the increase in bulk conductivity of the Mn doped CGS single crystals at room temperature indicates an increase in the hole concentration.

  2. From gaming developments to the latest blockbuster anime, DualShockers keeps you ahead of the curve. But it might have been Seranthony Dominguez, who was saved from delivering defeat to his team solely by the ninth inning fielding wizardry of right fielder Nick Castellanos . Castellanos raced in to make a diving catch of Jeremy Pena’s sinking fly ball with Jose Altuve racing toward house plate. Baker and Thomson each played Bullpen Roulette vigorously Friday, and finally Baker pulled the set off as soon as} too often. With a number of} relievers in play on both sides, the prospect that 카지노사이트 one of them wouldn't have his greatest stuff was inevitable. Still, the true takeaway from Friday’s Game 1 end result is the fragility of creating predictive conclusions by relying on information as frequently tenuous as the predictability of bullpen efficiency.
