  • The (Lu{sub x}Gd{sub 0.995-x}Sm{sub 0.005}){sub 2}SiO{sub 5} single crystals with x=0.095, 0.11, 0.15, 0.17, 0.19 0.35 and 0.5 were grown by the Czochralski method. Structural properties were investigated by X-ray diffraction measurements. Unit cell parameters and cell volume were determined by the Rietveld refinement of the collected X-ray powder spectra. The segregation features between Gd and Lu were estimated and analyzed. Vibrational properties of the solid solutions were analyzed on the basis of polarized Raman spectra acquired at 300-875 K temperature range. Absorption and emission spectra of Sm{sup 3+} ion in the crystals with different composition were analyzed in themore » terms of dopant energy levels, oscillator strengths of transitions and spectral features of luminescence bands in the visible range. Both structural and optical investigations revealed that change of Lu{sup 3+} content in (Lu{sub x}Gd{sub 0.995-x}Sm{sub 0.005}){sub 2}SiO{sub 5} solid solution crystals induces the phase transition from C2/c (Lu{sub 2}SiO{sub 5}) to P2{sub 1}/c (Gd{sub 2}SiO{sub 5}) structure. It was found that the break of LSO to GSO-type structure occurs at 0.15<x<0.17. - Graphical abstract: Single crystals of Sm{sup 3+}-doped (Lu{sub x}Gd{sub 1-x}){sub 2}SiO{sub 5} solid solutions have been grown by Czochralski method and characterized by various techniques. Crystal structure changes from C2/c to P2{sub 1}/c for composition with 0.15<x<0.17. Change of crystal structure causes changes in emission spectra. Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The (Lu{sub x}Gd{sub 1-x}){sub 2}SiO{sub 5} crystals are an alternative to LSO and GSO hosts for applications. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The break of the P2{sub 1}/c to C2/c structure in (Lu{sub x}Gd{sub 1-x}){sub 2}SiO{sub 5}:Sm occurs for 0.15<x<0.17. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Temperature-induced phase transition from C2/c to P2{sub 1}/c up to 875 K was not observed. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Observed significant changes of emission spectra caused by P2{sub 1}/c to C2/c structural transition.« less
  • In this study, the properties of point defects in Cd 1–xZn xTe 1–ySe y (CZTS) radiation detectors are characterized using deep-level transient spectroscopy and compared between materials grown using two different methods, the Bridgman method and the traveling heater method. The nature of the traps was analyzed in terms of their capture cross-sections and trap concentrations, as well as their effects on the measured charge-carrier trapping and de-trapping times, and then compared for the two growth techniques. The results revealed that Se addition to CdZnTe can reduce the V Cd concentration. In Travelling Heater Method (THM) and Bridgman Methodmore » (BM) grown CZTS detectors, besides a few similarities in the shallow and medium energy traps, there were major differences in the deep traps. It was observed that the excess-Te and lower growth-temperature conditions in THM-grown CZTS led to a complete compensation of V Cd and two additional traps (attributed to Te i and Te Cd ++ appearing at around E v + 0.26 eV and E c – 0.78 eV, respectively). The 1.1-eV deep trap related to large Te secondary phases was a dominant trap in the BM-grown CZTS crystals. In addition to i-DLTS data, the effects of point defects induced due to different processing techniques on the detector's resistivity, spectral response to gammas, and μτ product were determined.« less
