Title: Influence of pyrolysis conditions of aqueous solution aerosol of thiocarbamide complexes on the microwave photoconductivity of cadmium sulfide films

Abstract

Micrometer-thick CdS films were studied using microwave photoconductivity (the cavity method in the 3-cm range), X-ray phase analysis, and diffuse reflection methods. The films were grown by pyrolysis of aerosol of thiocarbamide coordination compounds at a substrate temperature of 250-550 deg. C and contained a chlorine impurity. A pulsed nitrogen laser (337 nm) with a pulse duration of 10 ns was used for optical excitation. The dependence of the parameters of the microwave photoconductivity response, band gap energy, and lattice microstrain on the film synthesis temperature was detected.

  • The reduction of sulfur in an aprotic solvent (DMSO) is known to be a two-stage process; each stage involves a bielectronic electrochemical step followed by a chemical dismutation reaction. When reduction is performed at a rotating electrode, it is shown that the electrochemical steps alone are involved in the electrode process. The voltammetric waves then correspond to the simple scheme 1st wave: S/sub 8/ + 2e/sup -/ ..-->.. S/sub 8//sup 2 -/ 2nd wave: S/sub 8//sup 2 -/ + 2e/sup -/ ..-->.. 2S/sub 4//sup 2 -/ The slower dismutation reactions appear only in the bulk of solution. They lead tomore » electron number which differ from 2 when S/sub 8/ is electrolyzed. The addition of Cd/sup 2 -/ ions to a polysulfide ion solution yields soluble polysulfide-cadmium 2:1 complexes (Cd(S /SUB x/ )/sub 2/)/sup 2 -/ with /chi/ = 8, 6, and 4. The stability of the complex is increased when /chi/ decreases from 8 to 4, which leads to dismutation and exchange reactions between complexes, polysulfide ions, and sulfur.« less
  • In this paper the degradation of 2,4-dichlorophenol in the presence of cadmium sulfide suspensions by ultraviolet illumination is studied under various solution pH conditions, reaction times, and CdS loadings. The increase in the 2,4-dichlorophenol removal at alkaline condition by photocatalysis is possibly attributed to the distribution of protonated and deprotonated species at different solution pH conditions. The degradation and demineralization of 2,4-dichlorophenol by the photocatalytic process can be described fairly well by a simplified two step consecutive reaction scheme based on carbon balance.
  • Vanadium oxide (V{sub 2}O{sub 5}) thin films were deposited on glass substrates by using a cost-efficient spray pyrolysis technique. The films were grown at 350° through thermal decomposition of VCl{sub 3} in deionized water with different solution spray rates. The high resolution X-ray diffraction results revealed the formation of nanocrystalline films having orthorhombic structures with preferential orientation along (101) direction. The spray rate influenced the surface morphology and crystallite size of the films. The crystallite size was found to increase whereas the micro-strain was decreased by increasing the spray deposition rates. The increase in crystallite size and decrease in themore » macrostrain resulted in an improvement in the films’ crystallinity. The UV-Visible spectroscopy analysis indicated that the average transmittance of all films lies in the range 75-80 %. The band gap of V{sub 2}O{sub 5} film was decreased from 2.65 to 2.46 eV with increase of the spray deposition rate from 5 ml/min to 10 ml/min. first, second, and third level headings (first level heading).« less
  • The authors have examined the current relaxation in a cadmium sulfide crystal on stationary illumination and on cutting off the light as well as on switching a magnetic field B = 0.36 T on and off. The monochromatic light was provided by a UM-2 monochromator. The electric and magnetic fields were mutually perpendicular and also perpendicular to the beam. They used a high-resistance photosensitive specimen. The specimen showed positive magnetoresistance in the light, while in the dark, a current of the same magnitude was unaffected by the field, so there are different mechanisms for the two cases. In the light,more » the field produces magnetoresistance and thus alters the free-carrier paths. In the dark, it does not affect the conductivity and the paths, which applies if one assumes that the paths in darkness are so localized that the field cannot displace them, since the motion occurs in narrow channels.« less
