Simultaneous detection of surface coverage and structure of krypton films on gold by helium atom diffraction and quartz crystal microbalance techniques
Danışman, Mehmet Fatih (2011-11-01)
We describe a quartz crystal microbalance setup that can be operated at low temperatures in ultra high vacuum with gold electrode surfaces acting as substrate surface for helium diffraction measurements. By simultaneous measurement of helium specular reflection intensity from the electrode surface and resonance frequency shift of the crystal during film adsorption, helium diffraction data can be correlated to film thickness. In addition, effects of interfacial viscosity on the helium diffraction pattern cou...
Mathematical modelling of sulfur retention in fluidized bed combustors
Altındağ, Hakan; Selçuk, Nevin; Oymak, Olcay; Department of Chemical Engineering (2003)
A considerable number of modeling studies for the investigation of sulfur retention in atmospheric bubbling fluidized bed combustors have been carried out and well documented in the literature. Despite 30 years of intensive study of sulfation process in fluidized bed combustors and numerous laboratory studies, there are still many uncertainties and disagreements on the subject. In addition, modeling sulfur retention performance of Turkish lignites with high sulfur, volatile matter and ash contents has not d...
Alternative Assessment as a Motivational Tool for Young Learners
Çetin, Lynn Bethard; Gürbüz, Nurdan (2015-05-10)
This paper is conducted to highlight the motivational role of alternative assessment in the teaching/learning of English for specific purposes (ESP). The population is the students of Sudan International University (SIU). Mixed methods are adopted. The use of both thematic and statistical analysis techniques, has interpreted a significant encouraging correlation between students' final accomplishment and their achievement in in-class activities. Moreover, students...
Invitational leadership practices at a school of foreign languages from a gendered perspective: a case study
Durna, Zübeyde; Seferoğlu, Gölge; Department of Gender and Women's Studies (2018)
This case study aims at exploring the perceptions of the instructors and the school director towards the employment of invitational leadership model and the factors affecting the instructors’ perceptions from a gendered perspective. The participants of this study are the instructors and the school director working at the School of Foreign Languages of a state university in Ankara, Turkey. Data were gathered through a perception questionnaire for the instructors and the school director and one to one and foc...
Oil Prices, Fossil-Fuel Stocks and Alternative Energy Stocks
Gormus, Alper; Diltz, David; Soytaş, Uğur (2015-07-01)
As new alternative energy industries are created and old ones are revised, markets constantly try to interpret and adjust to those changes. The purpose of this study is to shed some light on the inner dynamics of the select outside price-shocks versus sector-specific energy companies. This study analyzes the inner dynamics (both short and long-term) of sub-sector energy company portfolios such as petroleum, coal, natural gas, solar, nuclear, wind, and biofuel with respect to each other as well as other asse...
