Özdamar, Burak
This study aims to investigate the structural and thermodynamic properties of nanostructures which are generated from different atoms and geometries. The nanostructures in question are boron nitride nanoparticles, silicon nanowires along with sawtooth-like graphene nanoribbons. The goal is to calculate the specific heat values of boron nitride nanoparticles while the mechanical properties of the other nanostructures are investigated under uniaxial strain. The structural behaviors of these generated nanoparticles at different temperatures are investigated by classical molecular dynamics simulation technique with atomistic potential energy functions that are suitable for each system.

Gholivand, Hamed; Dönmezer, Nazlı; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
Two-dimensional materials such as graphene and few layer hexagonal Boron Nitride (h-BN) have been the center of attention in the last decade. These materials provide anisotropic and exclusive properties making them ideal candidates for the modern electronic and optoelectronic applications. With the enhancements in fabrication techniques and the ability to separate thin layers their popularity is continuously increasing. Understanding the thermal properties of these materials is necessary to make better devi...

Erkoç, Şakir; Erkoc, F (Elsevier BV, 2005-04-14)
The structural and electronic properties of the thalidomide molecule have been investigated theoretically by performing semi-empirical molecular orbital (AM1) and density functional theory calculations. The geometry of the molecule has been optimized by AM1 method and the electronic properties of the molecule have been calculated by density functional theory in its ground state.
Simulation of crystallization and glass formation processes for binary Pd-Ag metal alloys
Kart, HH; Uludogan, M; Cagin, T; Tomak, Mehmet (2003-09-12)
Glass formation and crystallization process of Pd-Ag metallic alloys are investigated by means of molecular dynamics simulation. This simulation uses the quantum Sutton-Chen (Q-SC) potential to study structural and transport properties of Pd-Ag alloys. Cooling rates and concentration effects on the glass formation and crystallization of binary alloys considered in this work are investigated. Pd-Ag alloys show the glass structure at fast cooling rates while it crystallizes at slow cooling rates. Increment of...

Erkoc, E; Erkoc, F; Keskin, N (Elsevier BV, 2003-08-01)
The structural and electronic properties of quercetin and its five radical isomers have been investigated theoretically by performing semi-empirical molecular orbital theory calculations. The geometry of the systems have been optimized and the electronic properties of the systems considered have been calculated by semi-empirical self-consistend-field molecular orbital theory at the level AM1 within UHF formalism in their ground state. Conclusions have been drawn by comparing with experimental results.
