A tunable multi-band metamaterial design using micro-split SRR structures

Akın, Tayfun
Sayan, Gönül
This paper presents the results of a feasibility study for the design of multi-band tunable metamaterials based on the use of micro-split SRR (MSSRR) structures. In this study, we have designed and constructed a conventional split-ring resonator (SRR) unit cell (type A) and two modified SRR unit cells having the same design parameters except that they contain two (type B) or four (type C) additional micro-splits on the outer square ring, along the arm having the main split. Transmission characteristics of the resulting MSSRR cells are obtained both numerically and experimentally and compared to those of the ordinary SRR unit cell. It is observed that the presence of the additional micro-splits leads to the increase of resonance frequency by substantial amounts due to the series capacitance effect. Next, we have designed and constructed 2x2 homogeneous arrays of magnetic resonators which consist of the same type of cells (either A, or B, or C). Such MSSRR blocks are found to provide only a single frequency band of operation around the magnetic resonance frequency of the related unit cell structure. Finally, we have designed and constructed 2x2 and 3x2 inhomogeneous arrays which contain columns of different types of metamaterial unit cells. We have shown that these inhomogeneous arrays provide two or three different frequency bands of operations due to the use of different magnetic resonators together. The number of additional micro-splits in a given MSSRR cell can be interactively controlled by various switching technologies to modify the overall metamaterial topology for the purpose of activating different sets of multiple resonance frequencies. In this context, use of electrostatically actuated RF MEMS switches is discussed, and their implementation is suggested as a future work, to control the states of micro-splits in large MSSRR arrays to realize tunable multi-band metamaterials.

A novel music algorithm based electromagnetic target recognition method in resonance region for the classification of single and multiple targets
Seçmen, Mustafa; Sayan, Gönül; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
This thesis presents a novel aspect and polarization invariant electromagnetic target recognition technique in resonance region based on use of MUSIC algorithm for the extraction of natural-resonance related target features. In the suggested method, the feature patterns called “MUSIC Spectrum Matrices (MSMs)” are constructed for each candidate target at each reference aspect angle using targets’ scattered data at different late-time intervals. These individual MSMs correspond to maps of targets’ natural-res...
A robust design optimization of a mixed-flow compressor impeller
Çevik, Mert; Uzol, Oğuz; Yavrucuk, İlkay (null; 2009-06-08)
This paper presents the results of a design and optimization study for the impeller of a small mixed-flow compressor. The objective of the optimization is to obtain an impeller geometry that could minimize a cost function based on the specific thrust and the thrust specific fuel consumption (TSFC) of a small jet engine. The design methodology is based on generating a configurational database for various compressor geometries using ID design codes and a commercial turbomachinery design/analysis software, app...
A parametric modeling study on distributed MEMS transmission lines
Unlu, M; Topalli, K; Demir, S; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Koc, S; Akın, Tayfun (2004-10-14)
This paper presents a parametric study of a new model for the distributed MEMS transmission line (DMTL) structures. In this new model, the MEMS bridges which are used as the loading elements of the DMTL structures are represented as low-impedance transmission lines, rather than a lumped CLR circuit. The model also includes LC networks at the transition points from the MEMS bridges to the unloaded parts of the DMTL which are simply high-impedance transmission lines. These LC networks are employed to model th...
A novel method for electromagnetic target classification using the music algorithm: Applied to small-scale aircraft targets
Secmen, Mustafa; Sayan, Gönül (2006-01-01)
This paper introduces a novel target classification method based on the extraction of target features by using natural response related late-time electromagnetic scattered field data. In the feature extraction stage, the use of multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm together with a simple but effective feature fusion approach leads to a significant reduction in the sensitivity of classification accuracy to both aspect angle variations and the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) levels of the data. Another...
A new data-adaptive network design methodology based on the k-means clustering and modified ISODATA algorithm for regional gravity field modeling via spherical radial basis functions
Uluğ, Raşit; Karslıoğlu, Mahmut Onur (2022-11-01)
© 2022, Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature.In this study, a new data-adaptive network design methodology called k-SRBF is presented for the spherical radial basis functions (SRBFs) in regional gravity field modeling. In this methodology, the cluster centers (centroids) obtained by the k-means clustering algorithm are post-processed to construct a network of SRBFs by replacing the centroids with the SRBFs. The post-processing procedure is inspired by the heuristic method, Iterative Self-Or...
