Electrical properties of Al/PCBM:ZnO/p-Si heterojunction for photodiode application

Publication date: 25 June 2020Source: Journal of Alloys and Compounds, Volume 827Author(s): H.H. Gullu, D.E. Yildiz, A. Kocyigit, M. YıldırımAbstractIn this paper, the electrical characteristics of spin-coated PCBM:ZnO interlayered Al/PCBM:ZnO/Si diode are investigated under the aim of photodiode application. Under dark condition, the diode shows about four orders in magnitude rectification rate and diode illumination results in efficient rectification with increase in intensity. The analysis of current-voltage curve results a non-ideal diode characteristics according to the thermionic emission model due to the existence of parasitic resistances and interface states. The measured current-voltage values are used to extract the barrier height and ideality factor under dark and illumination conditions. Under illumination, photo-generated carriers contribute to the current flow and linear photo-conductivity behavior in photo-current measurements with illumination shows the possible use of hybrid PCBM:ZnO layer in Si-based photodiodes. In addition, change in the series and shunt resistance values under illumination is found to be effective in this light-sensing behavior of the diode. This characteristic is also observed from the typical on/off illumination switching behavior for the photodiodes in transient photo-current, photo-capacitance and photo-conductance measurements with the quick response to the illumination. The deviations from ideality are also discussed by means of ...

Authors: Naghi Vishteh M, Javadi Mamaghani A, Rashidi S, Seyyed Tabaei SJ, Jeddi-Tehrani M Abstract Toxoplasma gondii is an intracellular protozoan parasite that can infect a wide range of warm-blooded animals. Humans as an intermediate host are infected by ingesting infectious oocytes or tissue cysts, or passing through the placenta in pregnant women. The aim of this study is producing monoclonal antibodies against a synthetic peptide from (surface antigen 1 [SAG1] or P30) protein of T. gondii. A synthetic peptide from SAG1 (P30) protein was conjugated to Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin (KLH (and then used for immunizat...

ConclusionComplications of parasitic fibroid can occur when morcelletor is used in laparoscopic surgeries, because of the growth of tissue which have spread in pelvic cavity. To prevent this complication, endobag morcellation should be used.Clinical SignificanceHistory of morcellation, should be asked to females, presenting with varied abdominal complaints, and history of laparoscopic surgery, possibility of parasitic fibroid should be considered in these patients.

Conclusion: CoBaT-Y017, a Phase II study was conducted with Plasmodium falciparum malaria-infected patients, for efficacy and safety evaluation of CoBaT-Y017 compared with Artemether-Lumefantrine used as a positive control. Methods. A single-blind randomized trial was conducted on 25 eligible males aged 18-40 years randomly assigned to two treatment groups: CoBaT-Y017 or Artemether-Lumefantrine. The first group received 35 ml of CoBaT-Y017 in 1.5 L mineral water administered daily for four consecutive days; the second group received oral Artemether-Lumefantrine, using WHO-recommended therapeutic dose regimens...
