This thesis analyzes some aspects of electromagnetic wave propagation in double negative materials. Double negative materials have negative refractive indices. They are backward-wave materials. Plane waves undergo negative refraction at interfaces between double positive and double negative media. Causality principle implies these properties. High frequency plane wave scattering from a double negative infinitely long cylinder has been analyzed by using modified Watson transform, geometrical optics and Mie series. Mie series results and the modified Watson transform results have been found to be in good agreement. Hence, the physical mechanism of the scattering has been revealed.

Polat, Özgür Murat; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
Electromagnetic wave scattering from a semi-infinite array of dipoles in free space is described by using asymptotic high frequency methods. An electric field integral expression is obtained and solved with asymptotic high frequency methods. An asymptotic field expression is obtained for a finite × infinite array of dipoles in free space. The analytical closed form expression for the array guided surface wave launching coefficient is obtained via a combination of an asymptotic high frequency analysis of a r...
Characterization of electromagnetic wave absorbing properties of sic-based and alumina ceramic woven fabrics
Tan, Elvan; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2008)
Electromagnetic wave absorbing properties of SiC-based and alumina ceramic woven fabrics have been investigated. Electrical conductivities of SiC-based ceramic woven fabrics were modified by heat treatment in air resulting in their oxidation. Surface properties of alumina woven fabrics were altered by gold-sputtering resulting in a high conductivity layer on the surface of the wovens. Electromagnetic wave interactions of single layer and double layered combinations of these ceramic woven fabrics were determ...
Multi-frequency contactless electrical impedance imaging using realistic head models : single coil simulations
Gürsoy, Doğa; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
Contactless electrical impedance imaging technique is based upon the measurement of secondary electromagnetic fields caused by induced currents inside the body. In this study, a circular single-coil is used as a transmitter and a receiver. The purpose of this study is twofold: (1) to solve the induced current density distribution inside the realistic head model resulting from a sinusoidal excitation, (2) to calculate the impedance change of the same coil from the induced current distribution inside the head...
Identification of electromagnetic scattering mechanisms by two dimensional windowed fourier transform approach
Germeç, K. Egemen; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, it is demonstrated that the two-dimensional Windowed Fourier Transform (WFT) can be effectively used to analyze the local spectral characteristics of electromagnetic scattering signals in the two-dimensional spatial frequency domain. The WFT is the extension of the Short Time Fourier Transform (STFT), which was originally derived to analyze the local spectral characteristics of one dimensional time functions. Since the WFT focuses on the local spectral behavior of the scattered field, the si...
