Transmission properties of fishnet structure as a left handed metamaterial

Bilge, Şerafettin
Left handed metamaterials are one of the most populer topic attracting attentions of scientists nowadays. Metamaterials are engineered materials which can possess inordinary properties when compared with common materials existing in nature. The main structure investigated in this thesis is fishnet metamaterial which is a left handed metamaterial. Firstly some left handed metamaterials and their properties are surveyed. A retrieval procedure in order to obtain permittivity, permeability and refractive index of any periodic material was summarized. Left handedness of fishnet structure was investigated and proven numerically. Effects of change in polarization of an incoming wave to symmetric and asymmetric fishnet structure were searched. A parametric analysis of fishnet structure was done. Phase advance in a three layered fishnet structure was investigated and compared with phase advance in an ordinary material. Fishnet wedge structure was surveyed and negative refraction and negative phase advance in this structure are shown. Finally, some types of disorderness of fishnet structure, then its effects on transmission results and retrieval results are demonstrated. In order to obtain transmission and reflection through a material, CST Microwave Studio® was used. A code following a numerical procedure in order to retrieve constitutive parameters of a periodic structure which was written in Matlab® was used in this thesis.


Image Mining Using Directional Spatial Constraints
AKSOY, SELİM; Cinbiş, Ramazan Gökberk (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-01-01)
Spatial information plays a fundamental role in building high-level content models for supporting analysts' interpretations and automating geospatial intelligence. We describe a framework for modeling directional spatial relationships among objects and using this information for contextual classification and retrieval. The proposed model first identifies image areas that have a high degree of satisfaction of a spatial relation with respect to several reference objects. Then, this information is incorporated...
Friction Factor Determination for Horizontal Two-Phase Flow Through Fully Eccentric Annuli
Metin, C. Omurlu; Ozbayoglu, M. E. (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
In this study, empirical friction factor correlations were developed for two-phase stratified-and intermittent-flow patterns through horizontal fully eccentric annuli. Two-phase flow hydraulics were investigated, and a flow pattern prediction model is proposed. The friction factor correlations were validated using experimental data collected at the multiphase flow loop METU-PETE-CTMFL. Two different geometrical configurations were used during experiments-that is, 0.1143 m inner diameter (ID) casing, 0.0571 ...
Reflection Phase Characterization of Curved High Impedance Surfaces
Durgun, Ahmet Cemal; Birtcher, Craig R. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-12-01)
Reflection phase characteristics of cylindrically curved high impedance surfaces (HISs) are examined. Due to the non-periodicity of the problem, full wave solutions can be time consuming. To overcome this problem, an approximate semi-analytical method, which assumes a homogenized model for the curved HIS, is developed. The model parameters can be extracted from the reflection properties of the flat HIS. For the cases where only Floquet currents are excited, the reflection phase diagram of a curved HIS is in...
Parameter extraction and image enhancement for catadioptric omnidirectional cameras
Baştanlar, Yalın; Çetin, Yasemin; Department of Information Systems (2005)
In this thesis, catadioptric omnidirectional imaging systems are analyzed in detail. Omnidirectional image (ODI) formation characteristics of different camera-mirror configurations are examined and geometrical relations for panoramic and perspective image generation with common mirror types are summarized. A method is developed to determine the unknown parameters of a hyperboloidal-mirrored system using the world coordinates of a set of points and their corresponding image points on the ODI. A linear relati...
Vibrational modes in (TlGaS2)(x)-(TlGaSe2)(1-x)mixed crystals by Raman measurements: compositional dependence of the mode frequencies and line-shapes
Isik, M.; Terlemezoglu, M.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Babayeva, R. F. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-09-01)
TlGaS(2)and TlGaSe(2)ternary semiconducting compounds have been of scientific interest due to their large ultrafast optical nonlinearity characteristics. These remarkable properties make them promising semiconducting materials in photonic applications. A series of (TlGaS2)(x)-(TlGaSe2)(1-x)layered mixed crystals grown by Bridgman method were investigated from the standpoint of their Raman spectroscopy characteristics. Experimental Raman scattering study of crystals were reported in the frequency range of 80...
