Title: Solubility of oxygen in CdS single crystals and their physicochemical properties

Abstract

The specific features of oxygen dissolution in CdS using the example of single crystals grown by the gas-transport method with deviations from stoichiometry at 1100°C are considered. The effect of various types of intrinsic point defects in crystals of different composition on the form in the presence of oxygen is analyzed. It is shown that the most stable composition thermodynamically is that corresponding to nonstoichiometric “self-activated cadmium sulphide” stabilized with oxygen.

  • The systems BaO-B/sub 2/O/sub 3/-Fe/sub 2/O/sub 3/ and BaO-B/sub 2/O/sub 3/-BaF/sub 2/-Fe/sub 2/O/sub 3/ have been investigated and the concentration and temperature regions of stability of the Ba Fe/sub 12/O/sub 19/ phase in them are determined with a view to choosing suitable solvents and growth conditions of barium hexaferrite single crystals. The temperature dependencies of the dynamic viscosity of solutions of these systems are studied. It is shown that solutions containing BaF/sub 2/ have considerably lower viscosity values. The density and volatility of the solutions at their saturation temperatures are determined. On the basis of the data obtained, an appropriatemore » solvent composition from the system BaO-B/sub 2/O/sub 3/-BaF/sub 2/ is proposed.« less
  • The system Na/sub 2/O-B/sub 2/O/sub 3/-BaO-Fe/sub 2/O/sub 3/ has been studied in order to find appropriate solvents and conditions of growth of barium hexaferrite from high-temperature solutions. The concentration and temperature regions of stability of the phase BaFe/sub 12/O/sub 19/ have been determined. The temperature dependences of the dynamic viscosities of solutions of this system are established and data on the density and volatility of the latter are obtained. On the basis of the experimental results, a solvent composition is proposed consisting of 70 mol % Na/sub 2/O and 30 mol % B/sub 2/O/sub 3/. The advantages of this solventmore » in comparison with the B/sub 2/O/sub 3/ and Na/sub 2/O based solvents used up to now are discussed.« less
  • An experimental study was made of the influence of fast-neutron irradiation on the photoelectric properties of CdS single crystals. Such irradiation of CdS generated trapping centers with ionization energies 0.44, 0.5, and 0.9 eV. The 0.9 eV centers were due to Frenkel defects in the cadmium sublattice. Fast neutrons created not only point defects in CdS but also defect clusters with effective space-charge radii of approx.300 A and potential barriers of 0.4 +- 0.05 eV high; these clusters were annealed at 200--450/sup 0/C. The photocurrent relaxation time tau was increased by irradiation (by a factor of 10/sup 6/ after receivingmore » a dose of 2 x 10/sup 18/ cm/sup -2/). When the temperature was lowered the relaxation time decreased at a rate corresponding to an activation energy of 0.5 eV. A distinguishing feature of the irradiated crystals was a photoconductivity spectrum at 300 degreeK with a broad maximum displaced toward the long wavelengths, whereas at 80 degreeK the photoconductivity spectrum in the vicinity of the fundamental absorption edge was practically identical with that of an unirradiated crystal. At long wavelengths (exceeding 580 nm) the photocurrent was much higher than that in an unirradiated sample. A proposed model explained the anomalous dependences of tau and the photoconductivity spectra of CdS single crystals irradiated with fast reactor neutrons. The model was based on the assumption that the defects inside clusters participated in thermal and optical electron transitions. (AIP)« less
  • It is shown that characteristic changes occur in the luminescent spectrum of CdS crystals when illuminated with uv light above 0 deg C. The original state can be restored by heat treatment. It is emphasized that these changes may seriously affect measurements of the temperature dependence of luminescence, and a procedure is proposed which enables one to deduce the magnitude of the error. The luminescent intensity is found to decrease exponentially, at constant temperature and excitation intensity. The observed behavior is thought to be due to photochemical processes.
