Dielectric constant (DC) and dielectric loss factor (DLF) are the two principal parameters that determine the coupling and distribution of electromagnetic energy during radiofrequency and microwave processing. In this study, chemometric methods [classical least square (CLS), principle component regression (PCR), partial least square (PLS), and artificial neural networks (ANN)] were investigated for estimation of DC and DLF values of cakes by using porosity, moisture content and main formulation components, fat content, emulsifier type (Purawave (TM), Lecigran (TM)), and fat replacer type (maltodextrin, Simplesse). Chemometric methods were calibrated firstly using training data set, and then they were tested using test data set to determine estimation capability of the method. Although statistical methods (CLS, PCR and PLS) were not successful for estimation of DC and DLF values, ANN estimated the dielectric properties accurately (R (2), 0.940 for DC and 0.953 for DLF). The variation of DC and DLF of the cakes when the porosity value, moisture content, and formulation components were changed were also visualized using the data predicted by trained network.

Calculation of the Dielectric Constant of a Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal From a Mean Field Model
YURTSEVEN, HASAN HAMİT; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2011-01-01)
The static dielectric constant epsilon(perpendicular to) of the ferroelectric liquid crystal 4-(3-methyl-2-chlorobutanoyloxy)-4'--heptyloxybiphenyl (A7) with high spontaneous polarization is calculated as a function of temperature using a mean field model. This calculation is performed close to the smectic A-isotropic liquid (SmA-I) transition for pure optically active compound (T-c = 81.6 degrees C). For this calculation of epsilon(perpendicular to), the free energy of the SmA phase is expanded in terms of...
Critical behaviour of the dielectric constant for the smectic AC* transition under the electric field in ferroelectric liquid crystals
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2012-01-01)
The temperature dependencies of the dielectric constant and the tilt angle (order parameter) are calculated under the electric field for the smectic A-smectic C* (AC*) transition in 4-(3-methyl-2-chlorobutanoyloxy)-4'-heptyloxybiphenyl (A7). The dielectric constant is fitted to the experimental data by using our mean field model with the biquadratic coupling between the spontaneous polarisation P and the tilt angle theta. Our results show that the mean field model with the P-2 theta(2) coupling describes sa...
Measurement of chi(c1) and chi(c2) production with root s=7 TeV pp collisions at ATLAS
Aad, G.; et. al. (2014-07-01)
The prompt and non-prompt production cross-sections for the chi(c1) and chi(c2) charmonium states are measured in pp collisions at root s = 7TeV with the ATLAS detector at the LHC using 4.5 fb(-1) of integrated luminosity. The chi(c) states are reconstructed through the radiative decay chi c -> J/psi gamma ( with J/psi -> mu(+)mu(-)) where photons are reconstructed from gamma -> e(+)e(-) conversions. The production rate of the chi(c2) state relative to the chi(c1) state is measured for prompt and non-prompt...
Analysis of the Critical Magnetic Field and the Dielectric Susceptibility for the Smectic A-Smectic C* Transition in DOBAMBC
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2015-01-01)
The temperature dependences of the critical magnetic field H-c and the dielectric susceptibility x(at constant magnetic fields) are analyzed close to the smectic Asmectic C* transition in DOBAMBC using the experimental data according to a power-law formula. These analyses are performed below T-c in the smectic C* phase. Values of the critical exponent delta for the critical magnetic field are determined in a given temperature interval (Tc-T) with increasing and decreasing H-c. Also, values of the critical e...

We calculate the Raman frequencies of the E-g mode and, the low and high frequency T-g mode as a function of temperature at a constant pressure of 2.85 kbar in the alpha-phase of solid nitrogen. The Raman frequencies of those lattice modes are calculated using the volume data from the literature at various temperatures (2.85 kbar) for the alpha-phase of solid N-2 through the mode Gruneisen parameter. Our predicted Raman frequencies can be compared with the experimental data and by this method the Raman freq...
