In this paper, using a cross-shaped complementary Indium Tin Oxide (ITO)-based meta surface design, the transmission of THz radiation is shown to be filtered within the 3 dB level from maximum in the frequency range of interest 333 GHz). Various metasurface structures primarily composed of cross-shaped openings with a 400 micron unit cell size are patterned on top of 1750 micron thick fused silica substrates. They are patterned using UV lithography methods after the films were grown using DC sputtering. The fabricated structures were characterized using Terahertz Time Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS) measurement technique. The measured transmission agrees well with the simulation of the structure for four different samples with different geometries. These results suggest that metasurface and/or metamaterial patterns based on ITO in visibly transparent media can be utilized for filtering of frequencies in the long wavelength spectrum. These types of filters can be very useful in the near future for THz communication and security applications.


Analysis of vibrational spectra in relation to the thermodynamic quantities close to the phase transitions in ammonium halides (NH4F and NH4I)
Tari, O.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2017-01-01)
The pressure dependences of the vibrational frequencies of the TO and L modes are analyzed from the literature data and the thermodynamic quantities such as isothermal compressibility K gamma, thermal expansion alpha p and the specific heat C-p - C-v are calculated through the mode Grilneisen parameters of those modes in ammonium halides (NH4F and NH4I). For this calculation, the observed frequencies of the TO mode (238 cm(-1) at 1 bar) and the L mode (74.7 meV at 1.9 GPa) are used for the phases of I, II a...

Ulusan, Hasan; Gharehbaghi, Kaveh; Zorlu, Ozge; Muhtaroglu, Ali; Külah, Haluk (2012-12-05)
This paper presents a fully self-powered low voltage and low power active rectifier circuit for vibration-based electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesters. A passive AC/DC doubler is used to provide a supply voltage for the active rectifier circuit. The proposed circuit is designed using standard 90 nm TSMC CMOS technology. The simulation results show that the proposed active rectifier circuit has voltage conversion ratio higher than 150% when the input peak voltage is more than 100 mV at open-load condition. T...
A Kalman Filter Based Approach for Light Flicker Evaluation of Power Systems
Kose, Neslihan; Salor, Ozgul; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2009-01-01)
In this paper, a Kalman filtering based approach is proposed to measure the light flicker of the electricity transmission systems. Analytical expressions of the instantaneous light flicker sensation are obtained beginning from a voltage waveform and these expressions are used to obtain a flicker estimation method based on the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) flickermeter. In the proposed method, the frequency domain components of the waveform are obtained by Kalman filtering and these compone...
An electromagnetic energy harvesting system for low frequency applications with a passive interface ASIC in standard CMOS
Rahimi, Arian; Zorlu, Ozge; Muhtaroglu, Ali; Külah, Haluk (2012-12-01)
This paper presents a compact energy harvesting system, which consists of an electromagnetic (EM) generator converting ambient low frequency vibrations to DC voltage by using a highly efficient full-wave rectifier in a System-on-Package (Sop). Frequency Up-Conversion technique has been utilized by the in-house EM transducer to harvest energy from very low frequency vibrations (<5 Hz). The interface ASIC is a passive rectifier based on the boot-strap rectification (BSR) technique to decrease the effective th...

A medium-power current source converter (CSC)-based shunt active power filter (APF) system is designed and implemented to suppress the amplification of low-order harmonics at the medium-voltage (MV) interface bus between the distribution and transmission systems, owing to the presence of large shunt capacitor banks installed only for reactive power compensation. Four CSC-based APF modules designed at 1.0 kV are operated in parallel and connected to the 31.5-kV MV bus via a specially designed coupling transf...
