As a graduation project, worked on effect of hydroxide sources on emission and morphology of europium doped yttrium hydroxide crystals. After understanding the effect, started working on facile synthesis of the crystals with -the best colleague I have- Tuğrul Güner. Procedure of synthesis involves a reactive base as a hydroxide source via help of the source crystals were synthesized even in 5 minutes. The results were gathered with various dopant concentration and time, yet time trials were carried out, the main purpose was finding a way to synthesize crystals in a facile way and in a short time. Also to support the experimental results, theoretical calculations were carried out by Hasan Şahin’s research group. Paper is submitted to Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology.
