Driven by the need for enhanced integrated performance and rapid development of ultrathin multitasked optical devices, this paper experimentally demonstrates monolayer direction-controlled multiplexing of a transmissive meta-hologram in the visible domain. The directional sensitivity is designed by imparting direction-controlled spin-dependent holographic recordings in the monolayer structure. The designed metasurface hologram consists of nano half-waveplates (HWPs) of low loss hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H). These nano-featured HWPs are carefully designed and optimized for circularly polarized (CP) illumination to not only excite electric and magnetic resonances simultaneously but also to excite antiferromagnetic modes to ensure high transmission for the cross CP-light. The antiferromagnetic modes are excited in such a way that the transmitted CP-light maintains the Ex component of the incident CP-light through even antiparallel magnetic dipoles while they reverse the E-y component via odd antiparallel magnetic dipoles. As compared to the standard amorphous silicon, our a-Si:H exhibits a much lower absorption coefficient in the visible domain. The proposed single-layer design is an advanced step towards scalability, low-cost fabrication, and on-chip implementation of novel metasurfaces with substantially higher performance in the visible domain.


Advanced Design of Schottky Photodiodes in Bulk CMOS for High Speed Optical Receivers
Orsel, Ogulcan Emre; Erdil, Mertcan; Kocaman, Serdar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-02-01)
This paper provides theoretical insight on how circular Schottky photodiodes in bulk CMOS can be optimized for certain integrated receiver applications. An optimal photodiode size is analytically demonstrated and the effects of a metal plate reflector are simulated using a transfer-matrix method, both for frontside and backside illumination. Finally, a distributed circuit model is presented, which deviates from the classical lumped model for large photodiodes or sheet resistances. The presented methodologie...
Integrated optical modulators with zero index metamaterials based on photonic crystal slab waveguides
Yildirim, Mustafa; GÖVDELİ, ALPEREN; Kocaman, Serdar (2019-01-01)
A novel integrated optical modulator design is presented using zero index metamaterial-based Mach-Zehnder Interferometer with photonic crystal phase shifters. The phase modulation relies on the shift between the photonic bandgaps having non-zero and zero effective refractive indices. A small change in the bulk index results in an effective index change between the arms of the MZI due to the disturbance of the band structure. Thus, such a structure provides a new approach for phase modulation on integrated o...
Dynamic analysis of CMUTs in different regimes of operation
Bayram, Barış; Ergun, AS; Yaralioglu, GG; Khuri-Yakub, BT (2003-01-01)
This paper reports on dynamic analysis of an immersed single capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) cell transmitting. A water loaded 24 mum circular silicon membrane of a transducer was modeled. The calculated collapse and snapback voltages were 80 V and 50 V, respectively. The resonance frequency, output pressure and nonlinearity of the CMUT in three regimes of operation were determined. These regimes were: a) the conventional regime in which the membrane does not make contact with the subs...
Development of a compact time-domain terahertz spectrometer using photoconductive antenna detection method
Güngör Erözbek, Ümmügül; Altan, Hakan; Department of Physics (2009)
In this thesis, we describe the development of a time-domain terahertz (THz) spectrometer driven by two different laser sources: an Er-doped femtosecond fiber laser and a mode-locked Ti:Sapphire laser. The resulting THz electromagnetic radiation was generated and detected using photoconductive antenna detection methods in both systems. In these experiments we characterized the THz power output for both the fiber laser driven system and the Ti:Sapphire laser driven system. Emphasis is given throughout this t...

Kepenek, Reha; Külah, Haluk; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
This thesis presents the development of high resolution, wide dynamic range sigma-delta type readout circuits for capacitive MEMS accelerometers. Designed readout circuit employs fully differential closed loop structure with digital output, achieving high oversampling ratio and high resolution. The simulations of the readout circuit together with the accelerometer sensor are performed using the models constructed in Cadence and Matlab Simulink environments. The simulations verified the stability and proper ...
