We present optimizations of corrugated metallic sheets for desired electromagnetic responses. Patches of finite extents are considered and deformed to achieve the required characteristics. Optimizations are performed by using genetic algorithms (GAs), while the required accurate solutions are performed via the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. In addition to improvements in GAs, the optimization environment is enhanced by using dynamic accuracy control and adaptive mesh refinement to handle thousands of critical simulations per optimization. Numerical examples involving corrugated sheets that provide focusing abilities at desired locations are presented to demonstrate the capabilities of the developed optimization mechanism.

Full-wave Electromagnetic Optimizations of Photonic Crystals Involving Dielectric Rods
Eray, H.; Karaosmanoglu, B.; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-11-22)
We consider full-wave optimizations of photonic crystals (PhCs) involving dielectric rods to obtain desired output patterns for given excitations. Starting from a full grid, each rod is kept or extracted in order to maximize the power density at different output locations. PhCs are modeled as three-dimensional structures, which are analyzed via surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm, in order to investigate realistic problems without resorting to infinite-length assumptions. ...

Guler, Sadri; Solak, Birol; Gür, Uğur Meriç; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-09-27)
We present computational analysis of optical chiral metamaterials that consist of helical metallic elements. At optical frequencies, metals are modeled as penetrable objects with plasmonic properties. A rigorous implementation based on boundary element methods and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is used for efficient and accurate analysis of three-dimensional structures. Numerical results demonstrate interesting polarization-rotating characteristics of such arrays with helical elements, as well as t...
The First Fabricated Dual-Band Uncooled Infrared Microbolometer Detector with a Tunable Micro-Mirror Structure
Keskin, Selcuk; Akın, Tayfun (2012-04-27)
This paper presents the first fabricated dual-band uncooled resistive infrared thermal microbolometer implemented with a resistive microbolometer and a tunable micro-mirror structure. Tunable reflective micro-mirrors are suspended underneath the suspended resistive microbolometers having a 35 mu m pixel pitch, and they are switched between two positions by the application of an electrostatic force for obtaining different responses in two wavelength infrared atmospheric windows, namely the 3-5 and 8-14 mu m,...
Novel electromagnetic surface integral equations for highly accurate computations of dielectric bodies with arbitrarily low contrasts
Ergül, Özgür Salih (Elsevier BV, 2008-12-01)
We present a novel stabilization procedure for accurate surface formulations of electromagnetic scattering problems involving three-dimensional dielectric objects with arbitrarily low contrasts. Conventional surface integral equations provide inaccurate results for the scattered fields when the contrast of the object is low, i.e., when the electromagnetic material parameters of the scatterer and the host medium are close to each other. We propose a stabilization procedure involving the extraction of nonradi...
Full-Wave Analysis of Three-Dimensional Optical Metamaterials Involving Deformed Nanowires
Karaosmanoglu, B.; Yılmaz, Ayşen; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2015-09-12)
We present computationally intensive electromagnetic analysis of metamaterials involving deformed nanowires. Random deformations are introduced to modify perfect nanowires in order to investigate the effect of geometric deviations on scattering properties of optical metamaterials. Numerical simulations of realistic structures of finite extent are performed accurately and efficiently using a rigorous simulation environment based on surface formulations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA).
