A numerical study on dependent absorption and scattering by interacting nano-sized particles

Dönmezer, Fatma Nazlı
Understanding and manipulating nanosized particles is crucial for the advancement of nanotechnology research. Dependent light scattering of noble metals can be used to achieve new material responses that can be used in different applications. Dependent light scattering of nanoparticles allows the understanding of orientation and location of closely positioned particles. Besides, dependently scattering metallic particles create significantly enhanced near fields and high absorption rates when excited at their plasmon resonance. It is used for spectrally selective heating and melting of nanosized particles as a nanomanufacturing method. With numerical methods dependent scattering properties of particles can be obtained. In this study, the dependent optical absorption efficiencies of metallic nanoparticles are obtained with the newly developed Integrated Poynting Vector Approach (IPVA). This is used in conjunction with a numerical light scattering solution tool DDSCAT. Results indicate that IPVA and DDSCAT together can be used for the estimation of scattering and absorption of nanoparticles affected by the near field of other particles in their close vicinity. The method is suggested to be suitable for the understanding of physical mechanisms behind dependent scattering prior to experiments that require lots of effort and resources.


Investigation of the structural properties of silicene nanoribbons by molecular dynamics simulations
İnce, Alper; Erkoç, Şakir; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2012)
With the emergence of nanotechnology, mankind has obtained the capability to manipulate materials at nanoscale and this led to the invention of a new group of novel materials like carbon nanotubes, graphene and quantum nanodots. Silicene nanoribbons (SiNRs) are one of the newest members of this nanomaterial family which has been synthesized very recently by deposition on silver substrates. A SiNR sheet is made up of a layer of two dimensional honeycomb structure solely composed of silicon atoms. In this the...

Development of a shell finite element for large deformation analysis of laminated composites
Yıldız, Tuba; Darendeliler, Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
The objective of the present work is to investigate the behavior of laminated fiber -reinforced polymer matrix composite shell structures under bending load with the help of a modified finite element computer code which was previously developed for the analysis of pseudo-layered single material shells. The laminates are assumed to be orthotropic and the formulation is adapted to first order shear deformation theory. The aim is to determine the large deformation characteristics numerically, and to predict th...
Structural modification with additional degrees of freedom in large systems
Canbaloğlu, Güvenç; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
In the design and development stages of mechanical structures, it is important to predict the dynamic characteristics of modified structures. Since time and cost are critical in design and development stage, structural modification methods predicting the dynamic responses of modified structures from those of the original structure and modification properties are very important, especially for large systems. In this thesis structural modification methods are investigated and an effective structural modificat...
An investigation of the principles of laboratory-scale particle-bed comminution
Cimilli, Hande; Hoşten, Çetin; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
The objective of this thesis is to investigate the principles of laboratory-scale particle bed comminution in a piston-die-press. The feed materials used in this investigation are quartz and calcite which were stage-crushed and dry screened to produce 3.35 x 2.36, 2.36 x 1.7, 1.7 x 1.18, 1.18 x 0.85, and minus 0.85mm size fractions. First, these narrow size fractions (excluding minus 0.85mm fraction) were comminuted under different pressures to determine the baseline for energy utilization. Then, these size...
