Electromagnetic metamorphosis: Reshaping scatterers via conformal anisotropic metamaterial coatings

Ozgun, Ozlem
Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa
We introduce a new technique (in the context of time-harmonic electromagnetic scattering), which renders an object (or scaterer) to be perceived as if it has a different shape, irrespective of the location of the observer. This is achieved through the usage of an anisotropic metamaterial layer, which is designed as conformal to the surface of the scatterer by employing the concept of coordinate transformation. We report some numerical results for finite element simulations of two-dimensional anisotropic metamaterial coatings. (c) Wiley Periodicals, Inc.


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...

In this article, we introduce a new type of Characteristic Basis Finite Element Method (CBFEM), which is based on the concepts of Physical Optics (PO) and Perfectly Matched Layers (PMLs), for solving large-scale electromagnetic scattering problems in a rigorous and efficient manner. This parallel and iteration-free technique, called CBFEM-PO, decomposes the computational domain into a number of subdomains, and generates three types of characteristic basis functions (CBEs) that are specially-tailored to each...
Engineering nonlinear response of nanomaterials using Fano resonances
Turkpence, Deniz; Akguc, Gursoy B.; Bek, Alpan; Taşgın, Mehmet Emre (IOP Publishing, 2014-10-01)
We show that nonlinear optical processes of nanoparticles can be controlled by the presence of interactions with a molecule or a quantum dot. By choosing the appropriate level spacing for the quantum emitter, one can either suppress or enhance the nonlinear frequency conversion. We reveal the underlying mechanism for this effect, which is already observed in recent experiments: (i) suppression occurs simply because transparency induced by Fano resonance does not allow an excitation at the converted frequenc...
Efficient finite element solution of low-frequency scattering problems via anisotropic metamaterial layers
Ozgun, Ozlern; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Wiley, 2008-03-01)
We introduce a new technique which remedies the drawbacks in the Finite Element solution of low-frequency electromagnetic scattering problems, through the usage of an anisotropic metamaterial layer which is designed by employing the coordinate transformation approach. The usual finite element method should utilize a "challenging" mesh generation scheme to accurately simulate the "small" objects in scattering problems; on the contrary, the proposed technique provides a considerable reduction in the number of...
Gain and transient photoresponse of quantum well infrared photodetectors: A detailed ensemble Monte Carlo study
Cellek, O.O.; Memis, S.; Bostanci, U.; Ozer, S.; Beşikci, Cengiz (Elsevier BV, 2004-09-01)
We investigate different gain characteristics observed on quantum well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs) fabricated with various material systems, and the effects of barrier material properties on the device characteristics through detailed ensemble Monte Carlo simulations. When the energy spacing between the central and satellite valleys is increased, the improvement in the excited electron lifetime is found to be much stronger than that in the average electron velocity in the device. According to our result...
