Implementation and characterization of an absorption filter for on-chip fluorescent imaging

Yıldırım, Ender
Arpali, Serap Altay
Here we present fabrication and characterization of an absorption filter with superior roll-on properties and precisely tunable cut-off wavelengths for fluorescent imaging applications in lab-on-a-chip systems. The filters were fabricated by spinning dye doped photopolymer (Orasol Yellow in Norland Optical Adhesive 60) on glass substrates. The fabrication technique allowed us to precisely tune the cut-off wavelength of the filters. We showed that filters with different cut-off in the range of 386 nm-504 nm could be obtained simply by controlling the settling time before spinning. The filters exhibited a steep roll-on from stopband to passband at the cut-off. Transmission in the stopband was observed to be maximum 3% while it was almost constant at 100% in the passband within the range of 220 nm-620 nm. On-chip use of the filters was also demonstrated for imaging particular fluorescent beads.


Design of Microstrip Quadruplet Filters on Filpro
Oruc, Sacid; Yıldırım, Nevzat (2018-11-02)
In this paper, a simple dimensional design procedure is developed for microstrip/stripline quadruplet filters by starting with direct BP synthesis of a lumped quadruplet with inverter couplings, K14, K12, K23 and K34. K14 is the cross-coupling inverter which creates a symmetric pair of finite transmission zeros (FTZ's) if the sign of K14 is opposite of the other inverters while a complex TZ is created if K14 has the same sign as the other inverters leading to linear phase (flat delay) responses. The LC reso...
Design of Selective Linear Phase Cross-Coupled Dielectric Resonator Filters
Ozturk, Onur Ozan; Oruc, Sacid; Alicioglu, Bulent; Yıldırım, Nevzat (2018-11-02)
In this paper, a highly selective linear phase filter is designed and implemented in cross-coupled form using dielectric resonators in Ku band to be used as a channel filter in IMUX of a satellite receiver. Extreme delay flatness is required: 1.5 nS delay ripple over 60 % of the passband and 12 nS near the band edges. The initial design is carried out as 10 resonator symmetric cross-coupled filter with all ideal inverter couplings realizing two finite transmission zeros (FTZ) satisfying also the delay flatn...
Design, Implementation and Operation of a New C-type 2nd Harmonic Filter for Electric Arc and Ladle Furnaces
Gercek, Cem Ozgur; Ermiş, Muammer; Ertas, Arif; Kose, Kemal Nadir; Unsar, Ozgur (2010-10-07)
In this research work, the transient overvoltage suppression capability and harmonic filtering performance of C-type 2nd harmonic filters are optimized by using two-stage damping resistors; one is permanently connected to the filter circuit, while the other one is switched on by back-to-back connected thyristors during furnace transformer and Harmonic Filter (HF) energization periods. However in conventional C-type 2nd HFs there is only one damping resistor, which is permanently connected to the filter circ...
On Miniaturization and Performance Improvement of Planar Wideband Bandpass Filters Without Coupled Lines
Alicioglu, Bulent; Yıldırım, Nevzat (2009-10-01)
Two classical approaches are compared in various respects for the design of wideband planar BPF's without parallel coupled lines, namely, BPF's designed by pole placement with contributing Unit Elements (UE) and inverter coupled resonator filters designed from LP prototypes. It is shown that the circuit obtained by direct BP synthesis is a special case of inverter coupled filter with inverters converted into single Unit Elements. It is also shown that if the inverters are converted into odd number of UE's t...
Experimental investigation of particle filtration in compression resin transfer molding of advanced composites
Aydil Dalkıran, Tuğçe; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
With the inclusion of particle fillers in advanced continuous fiber reinforced composites, issues such as impregnation with increased viscosity of the injected resin leading to high process pressures and possible nonhomogeneous/directional composite properties due to filtering of filler particles necessitate the study of the relations between processing parameters and the resulting particle distributions. In this study, the particle-resin interaction during compression resin transfer molding (CRTM) and resi...
