Item Open AccessCVD grown 2D MoS2 layers: a photoluminescence and fluorescence lifetime imaging study(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2016) Özden, A.; Şar, H.; Yeltik A.; Madenoğlu, B.; Sevik, C.; Ay, F.; Perkgöz, N. K.In this letter, we report on the fluorescence lifetime imaging and accompanying photoluminescence properties of a chemical vapour deposition (CVD) grown atomically thin material, MoS2. µ-Raman, µ-photoluminescence (PL) and fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) are utilized to probe the fluorescence lifetime and photoluminescence properties of individual flakes of MoS2 films. Usage of these three techniques allows identification of the grown layers, grain boundaries, structural defects and their relative effects on the PL and fluorescence lifetime spectra. Our investigation on individual monolayer flakes reveals a clear increase of the fluorescence lifetime from 0.3 ns to 0.45 ns at the edges with respect to interior region. On the other hand, investigation of the film layer reveals quenching of PL intensity and lifetime at the grain boundaries. These results could be important for applications where the activity of edges is important such as in photocatalytic water splitting. Finally, it has been demonstrated that PL mapping and FLIM are viable techniques for the investigation of the grain-boundaries. (Figure presented.). © 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

G.; Melik, R.; Ünal, Emre; Perkgöz, N. K.; Kamstock, D. A.; Ryan, S. D.; Dernell W. S.; Demir, Hilmi Volkan; Puttlitz, C. M.; Demir, Hilmi VolkanOrthopaedic extremity injuries present a large medical and financial burden to the United States and world-wide communities . Approximately six million long bone fractures are reported annually in the United States and approximately 10% of these fractures do not heal properly. Though the exact mechanism of impaired healing is poorly understood, many of these non-unions result when there is a communited condition that does not proceed through a stabilized healing pathway . Currently, clinicians may monitor healing visually by radiographs, or via manual manipulation of the bone at the fracture . Unfortunately, the course of aberrant fracture healing is not easily diagnosed in the early period when standard radiographic information of the fracture is not capable of discriminating the healing pathway. Manual assessment of fracture healing is also an inadequate diagnostic tool in the early stages of healing . Item Open AccessHighly polarized light emission by isotropic quantum dots integrated with magnetically aligned segmented nanowires(American Institute of Physics, 2014) Uran, C.; Erdem, T.; Guzelturk, B.; Perkgöz, N. K.; Jun, S.; Jang, E.; Demir, Hilmi Volkan; Demir, Hilmi VolkanIn this work, we demonstrate a proof-of-concept system for generating highly polarized light from colloidal quantum dots (QDs) coupled with magnetically aligned segmented Au/Ni/Au nanowires (NWs). Optical characterizations reveal that the optimized QD-NW coupled structures emit highly polarized light with an s-to p-polarization (s/p) contrast as high as 15: 1 corresponding to a degree of polarization of 0.88. These experimental results are supported by the finite-difference time-domain simulations, which demonstrate the interplay between the inter-NW distance and the degree of polarization. Item Open AccessMoS2 phototransistor sensitized by colloidal semiconductor quantum wells(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2020-12) Sar, H.; Taghipour, Nima; Lisheshar, İ. W.; Delikanlı, Savaş; Demirtaş, M.; Demir, Hilmi Volkan; Ay, F.; Perkgöz, N. K.; Taghipour, Nima; Delikanlı, Savaş; Demir, Hilmi VolkanA phototransistor built by the assembly of 2D colloidal semiconductor quantum wells (CQWs) on a single layer of 2D transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) is displayed. This hybrid device architecture exhibits high efficiency in Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) enabling superior performance in terms of photoresponsivity and detectivity. Here, a thin film of CdSe/CdS CQWs acts as a sensitizer layer on top of the MoS2 monolayer based field‐effect transistor, where this CQWs–MoS2 structure allows for strong light absorption in CQWs in the operating spectral region and strong dipole‐to‐dipole coupling between MoS2 and CQWs resulting in enhanced photoresponsivity of one order of magnitude (11‐fold) at maximum gate voltage (VBG = 2 V) and two orders of magnitude (≈ 5 × 102) at VBG = −1.5 V, and tenfold enhanced specific detectivity. The illumination power‐dependent characterization of this hybrid device reveals that the thin layer of CQWs dominates the photogating mechanism compared to the photoconductivity effect on detection performance. Such hybrid designs hold great promise for 2D‐material based photodetectors to reach high performance and find use in optoelectronic applications. Item Open AccessVibrational and thermodynamic properties of α-, β-, γ-, and 6, 6, 12-graphyne structures(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2014) Perkgöz, N. K.; Sevik, C.Electronic, vibrational, and thermodynamic properties of different graphyne structures, namely α-, β-, γ-, and -graphyne, are investigated through first principles-based quasi-harmonic approximation by using phonon dispersions predicted from density-functional perturbation theory. Similar to graphene, graphyne was shown to exhibit a structure with extraordinary electronic features, mechanical hardness, thermal resistance, and very high conductivity from different calculation methods. Hence, characterizing its phonon dispersions and vibrational and thermodynamic properties in a systematic way is of great importance for both understanding its fundamental molecular properties and also figuring out its phase stability issues at different temperatures. Thus, in this research work, thermodynamic stability of different graphyne allotropes is assessed by investigating vibrational properties, lattice thermal expansion coefficients, and Gibbs free energy. According to our results, although the imaginary vibrational frequencies exist for β-graphyne, there is no such a negative behavior for α-, γ-, and -graphyne structures. In general, the Grüneisen parameters and linear thermal expansion coefficients of these structures are calculated to be rather more negative when compared to those of the graphene structure. In addition, the predicted difference between the binding energies per atom for the structures of graphene and graphyne points out that graphyne networks have relatively lower phase stability in comparison with the graphene structures. © 2014 IOP Publishing Ltd.
