Erbaş, Kadir Can
Short Pulse equation derived by Schafer and Wayne is a nonlinear partial differential equation that describes ultra short laser propagation in a dispersive optical medium such as optical fibers. Some properties of this equation e.g. traveling wave solution and its soliton structure and some of its conserved quantities were investigated. Conserved quantities were obtained by mass conservation law, lax pair method and transformation between Sine-Gordon and short pulse equation. As a result, loop soliton characteristic and six conserved quantities were found.

Design of reflective and antireflective coatings for space applications
Eroğlu, Hüseyin Cüneyt; Esendemir, Akif; Department of Physics (2009)
In order to improve the efficiency of various optical surfaces, optical coatings are used. Optical coating is a process of depositing a thin layer of a material on an optical component such as mirror or lens to change reflectance or transmittance. There are two main types of coatings namely; reflective and antireflective (AR) Coatings. Reflective and antireflective coatings have long been developed for a variety of applications in all aspects of use; for optical and electro-optical systems in telecommunicat...
Nonlinear optical properties of semiconductor heterostructures
Yıldırım, Hasan; Tomak, Mehmet; Department of Physics (2006)
The nonlinear optical properties of semiconductor heterostructures, such as GaAsAl/GaAs alloys, are studied with analytic and numerical methods on the basis of quantum mechanics. Particularly, second and third-order nonlinear optical properties of quantum wells described by the various types of confining potentials are considered within the density matrix formalism. We consider a Pöschl-Teller type potential which has been rarely considered in this area. It has a tunable asymmetry parameter, making it a goo...

Applications in broadband THz spectroscopy towards material studies
Türkşen, Zeynep; Altan, Hakan; Department of Physics (2011)
The purpose of this work was to construct and analyze a THz time domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) system by using a nanojoule energy per pulse ultrafast laser (non-amplified ultrafast laser or oscillator) source and a non-linear optical generation method for THz generation. First a THz-TDS system, which uses photoconductive antenna (PCA) method for THz generation, was built to understand the working principles of these types of systems. This THz-TDS system which used PCA for generation and a 2mm thick <110> Zn...
