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
  • This paper investigates single crystals of ZnS annealed in oxygen with enhanced partial pressure of atomic oxygen over the thermodynamic equilibrium pressure; this should promote more intensive occurence of oxidative processes. The pressure of atomic oxygen was increased by effecting dissociation of oxygen molecules in a high-frequency discharge. The results of measurement of the electrical and photelectrical properties of ZnS crystals treated in atomic oxygen coincide with the results of analogous measurements of the properties of ZnS crystals treated in active sulfur vapor. This yields evidence of the identity of the prevailing defects in these crystals. The main mechanism ofmore » defect formation in annealing of ZnS in oxygen is quasiepitaxial.« less
  • Magnetic properties and flux pinning of oxygen-deficient YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7{minus}{ital y}} single crystals have been studied. The superconducting transition temperature and inductive critical current density decrease as the level of oxygen depletion increases. No obvious enhancement in the pinning strength was found in the oxygen-depleted YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7{minus}{ital y}} system for the applied field along the {ital c} axis. We attribute this absence of enhanced pinning to the mismatch of the oxygen vacancy size with the superconducting coherence length over the entire superconducting regime.
