In this study, we demonstrate that periods of metallic gratings on elastomeric substrates can be tuned with external strain and hence are found to control the resonance condition of surface plasmon polaritons. We have excited the plasmon resonance on the elastomeric grating coated with gold and silver. The grating period is increased up to 25% by applying an external mechanical strain. The tunability of the elastomeric substrate provides the opportunity to use such gratings as efficient surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy substrates. It's been demonstrated that the Raman signal can be maximized by applying an external mechanical strain to the elastomeric grating. (C) 2009 Optical Society of America


Dispersive optical constants of Tl2InGaSe4 single crystals
Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2007-09-01)
The structural and optical properties of Bridgman method grown Tl2InGaSe4 crystals have been investigated by means of room temperature x-ray diffraction, and transmittance and reflectance spectral analysis, respectively. The x-ray diffraction technique has shown that Tl2InGaSe4 is a single phase crystal of a monoclinic unit cell that exhibits the lattice parameters of a = 0.77244 nm, b = 0.64945 nm, c = 0.92205 nm and beta = 95.03 degrees . The optical data have revealed an indirect allowed transition band ...
Ground-state properties, vortices, and collective excitations in a two-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensate with gravitylike interatornic attraction
Keleş, Ahmet; Tanatar, B. (American Physical Society (APS), 2008-05-01)
We study the ground-state properties of a Bose-Einstein condensate with short-range repulsion and gravitylike 1 /r interatomic attraction in two-dimensions (2D). Using the variational approach we obtain the ground-state energy and analyze the stability of the condensate for a range of interaction strengths in 2D. We also determine the collective excitations at zero temperature using the time-dependent variational method. We analyze the properties of the Thomas-Fermi-gravity and gravity regimes, and we exami...

The structural stability and energetics of carbon, silicon, and germanium microclusters containing 3-7 atoms have been investigated by using a recently developed empirical many-body potential energy function (PEF), which comprises two- and three-body atomic interactions. The PEF satisfies both bulk cohesive energy per atom and bulk stability exactly. It has been found that the most stable C3-4 microclusters are linear with D-infinity-h symmetry but C5-7 microclusters are planar with D(nh) symmetry. Silic...
Absorption edge and optical constants of layered structured Tl2Ga2Se3S single crystals
Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2012-06-01)
The optical properties of Tl2Ga2Se3S layered crystals have been studied through transmission and reflection measurements in the photon energy range 1.13-2.82 eV. The optical indirect and direct transitions with band gap energies of 2.15 and 2.54 eV, respectively, were determined from the analysis of absorption data at room temperature. The dispersion of refractive index is discussed in terms of the Wemple-DiDomenico single-effective oscillator model. The refractive index dispersion parameters, namely oscill...
Raman Spectroscopy Investigation of Nano Hydroxyapatite Doped with Yttrium and Fluoride Ions
Yilmaz, Bengi; Evis, Zafer (Informa UK Limited, 2014-01-02)
In this study, nano hydroxyapatite doped with yttrium (2.5, 5, and 7.5mol%) and fluoride (2.5mol%) ions were synthesized by precipitation method and sintered at 900 degrees C, 1100 degrees C, and 1300 degrees C. Raman spectroscopy was applied to track the structural modifications in pure and doped hydroxyapatites. The results showed that the main characteristic band of pure hydroxyapatite at 963cm(-1) was not affected significantly by ion doping but exhibited higher intensity with increasing sintering tempe...
