Silicon-based preceramic polymers and their uses in polymer composites: synthesis, characterization and processing
Dönmez Karadal, Sibel; Bayram, Göknur; Department of Chemical Engineering (2011)
The objectives of this study are to synthesize poly(dimethylsilane) (PDMS) preceramic polymer and to investigate its effect on morphology, flame retardant and mechanical properties of polypropylene (PP) based composites. There are mainly two parts in this thesis. In the first part, PDMS was synthesized by electrochemical polymerization of dichlorodimethylsilane, which was dissolved in 1,2 dimethoxyethane (DME) solvent consisting of tetrabutyl ammonium perchlorate (TBAP), as supporting electrolyte. PDMS was ...

Mülazımoğlu, Emre; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Turan, Raşit; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2013)
Being the key component of the semiconductor industry, silicon in nanowire form has gained increased attention. In this thesis, vertical arrays of silicon nanowires (Si NWs) have been fabricated with metal assisted etching method (MAE). MAE method is a simple, solution based and low temperature process. In this method, fabricated nanowires inherit the starting wafer characteristics, such as doping type, density and crystal orientation. In the first part, fabricated NWs in network form have been demonstrated...
Silicon nanostructures for electro-optical and photovoltaic applications
Kulakcı, Mustafa; Turan, Raşit; Department of Physics (2012)
Recently extensive efforts have been spent in order to achieve all silicon based photonic devices exploiting the efficient light emission from nanostructured silicon systems. In this thesis, silicon based nanostructures have been investigated for electro-optical and photovoltaic applications. The thesis focused on three application areas of silicon nanostructures: Light emitting diode (LED), light modulation using quantum confined Stark effect (QCSE) and photovoltaic applications. In the context of LED appl...
