Accurate analysis of metamaterials involving finite arrays of split-ring resonators and thin wires
Gurel, Levent; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Unal, Alper (2007-03-30)
In order to gain physical insight into how some metamaterial structures behave, we report our results obtained by accurate numerical solutions of electromagnetic problems related to various constructions of split-ring-resonators (SRRs) and thin wires (TWs). Single and multiple layers of arrays of SRRs and TWs are investigated in detail using the electric-field integral equation. Without utilizing any homogenization techniques, we accurately model large numbers of unit cells that translate into very large co...
Optimal Cavities to Enhance Free-space Matching in Solar Cells
Karaosmanoglu, B.; Topcuoglu, U.; Guler, S.; Tuygar, E.; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2018-08-04)
In this paper, we present design and numerical simulations of nano-cavities for free space matching in solar cells at optical frequencies. The cavity designs are inspired by the wellknown antenna geometries that are commonly used at radio and microwave frequencies. Using such designs that have not been explored before in the context of solar cells, the electromagnetic mismatch between solar-cell surfaces and vacuum is significantly reduced, in comparison to planar interfaces and those with the conventional ...
Energy dissipation in atomic force microscopy and atomic loss processes
Atomic scale dissipation is of great interest in nanomechanics and atomic manipulation. We present dissipation measurements with a linearized, ultrasmall amplitude atomic force microscope which is capable of measuring dissipation at chosen, fixed separations. We show that the dynamic dissipation in the noncontact regime is of the order of a few 10-100 meV per cycle. This dissipation is likely due to the motion of a bistable atomic defect in the tip-surface region. In the contact regime we observe dc hystere...
Rigorous Solutions of Electromagnetic Problems Involving Hundreds of Millions of Unknowns
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2011-02-01)
Accurate simulations of real-life electromagnetic problems with integral equations require the solution of dense matrix equations involving millions of unknowns. Solutions of these extremely large problems cannot be easily achieved, even when using the most powerful computers with state-of-the-art technology. Hence, many electromagnetic problems in the literature have been solved by resorting to various approximation techniques, without controllable error. In this paper, we present full-wave solutions of sc...
Improved Nano-optical Traps for Single-particle Sensing Applications
Isiklar, G.; Algun, M.; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2019-01-01)
We present numerical design and simulations of nano-optical traps for single-particle sensing applications. While commonly used nano-holes with circular shapes are suitable for physically trapping nanoparticles to be detected and identified, they generate relatively weak signals in the far zone, especially when nanoparticles are small. We show that optical sensitivity of nano-holes can be enhanced significantly by using well-designed tip geometries such that metallic and dielectric nanoparticles can be dete...
