The design of aperture shape is a promising approach for enhanced transmission through a subwavelength aperture. We designed split-ring-resonator (SRR)-shaped apertures in order to increase the transmission through subwavelength apertures by making use of the strong localization of the electromagnetic field in SRR-shaped apertures. We obtained a promising result of 104-fold enhancement by utilizing SRR-shaped apertures. It is possible to use these proposed structures at optical frequencies by making several modifications such as decreasing the sharpness of edges and increasing the gap width. Since SRRs are already being realized at optical frequencies, our proposed SRR-shaped aperture structures are promising candidates for novel applications.

Theoretical investigation of intersubband nonlinear optical rectification in AlxlGa1-xlAs/GaAs/AlxrGa1-xrAs asymmetric rectangular quantum wells
Karabulut, Ibrahim; Atav, Uelfet; Safak, Haluk; Tomak, Mehmet (Wiley, 2007-09-01)
In this study, a theoretical investigation of intersubband nonlinear optical rectification in Alx1Ga1-x1As/ GaAs/AlxrGa1-xrAs asymmetric rectangular quantum wells is presented. The electronic states in the asymmetric rectangular quantum well are described within the framework of the envelope function approach including the effects of band nonparabolicity and the effective mass mismatch. The nonlinear optical rectification is calculated using the density matrix formalism. It is found that the nonlinear optic...
Characterization of GZO thin films fabricated by RF magnetron sputtering method and electrical properties of In/GZO/Si/Al diode
Surucu, O. Bayrakli (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-11-01)
The main focus of this work is the structural and optical characterization of Ga-doped ZnO (GZO) thin film and determination of the device behavior of In/GZO/Si/Al diode. GZO thin films were deposited by RF magnetron sputtering technique from single target. The structural and morphological properties of GZO film were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman scattering, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy analysis (EDS) measurements. Optical properties of the fil...
Adaptive image enhancement based on clustering of wavelet coefficients for infrared sea surveillance systems
Kara, A. Onur; Okman, O. Erman; Aytac, Tayfun (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-01)
Most of the techniques developed for infrared (IR) image enhancement (IE) depend heavily on the scene, environmental conditions, and the properties of the imaging system. So, with a set of predefined scenario properties, a content-based IR-IE technique can be developed for better situational awareness. This study proposes an adaptive IR-IE technique based on clustering of wavelet coefficients of an image for sea surveillance systems. Discrete wavelet transform (DWT) of an image is computed and feature vecto...
Temperature dependence of the IR mode frequency calculated from the volume data for DMNaFE
Alguel, G.; Enginer, Y.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Informa UK Limited, 2019-10-26)
We analyze the infrared (IR) frequencies of the internal mode of asymmetric close to phase transition in DMNaFe. By means of the mode Gruneisen parameter , the IR frequencies are calculated from the observed volume data given in the literature. Calculated frequencies are fitted to the observed data for both below and above as the varies with the temperature in the low and high temperature phases in this compound. Our results show that the critical behavior of the observed IR frequencies can be explained fro...
Nonlinear optical properties of a Woods-Saxon quantum dot under an electric field
AYTEKİN, ÖZLEM; Turgut, Sadi; Unal, V. Ustoglu; Aksahin, E.; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
A theoretical study of the effect of the confining potential on the nonlinear optical properties of two dimensional quantum dots is performed. A three-parameter Woods-Saxon potential is used within the density matrix formalism. The control of confinement by three parameters and an applied electric field gives one quite an advantage in studying their effects on the nonlinear properties. The coefficients investigated include the optical rectification, second and third-harmonic generation and the change in the...
