Radial heterojunctions are known to exhibit magnificent anti-reflectivity and enhanced carrier collectivity due to short carrier diffusion distances. In this work, silicon nanowire-poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)-poly(styrenesulfonate) radial heterojunction solar cells are presented. Both layers of the heterojunction are fabricated using simple and cost-effective methods. Radial heterojunctions showed remarkable improvements in solar cell characteristics compared to planar heterojunctions, fabricated under the same conditions. The highest solar cell efficiency of 5.30% is obtained. The cells exhibit external quantum efficiency of 77% at 500 nm wavelength and harvest light over the entire 300-1200 nm spectral bandwidth. The effect of nanowire length on device performance is also determined. (C) 2011 American Institute of Physics. [doi:10.1063/1.3636385]


On Orbit Modulation Transfer Function Estimation for BILSAT Imagers
Leloğlu, Uğur Murat (null; 2006-07-06)
BiLSAT, launched to its sun-synchronous orbit on 27.09.2003, is a 129 Kg small satellite carrying a panchromatic camera and a 4band multispectral camera with Ground Sampling Distances (GSD) 12.6 m and 28 m, respectively. The multispectral camera is composed of 4 totally independent cameras. All five refractive optic cameras have 2048 by 2048 frame CCDs as sensors. The overall Modulation Transfer Functions (MTF) of the imaging systems are very important for characterization of imagers. In this study, the MTF...
Parallel computation of flows around flapping airfoils in biplane configuration
Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Kaya, Muhammed Çağrı (2002-05-22)
Unsteady, laminar flows over flapping airfoils in biplane configuration are computed on overset grids. The overset grid solutions are obtained in parallel in a cluster environment. It is shown that airfoils in biplane configuration and oscillating in pitch and plunge with a proper phase shift between them enhance the thrust production significantly.
Real-Time Attitude Independent Calibration of Spinning Spacecraft Magnetometers Using Quasi-Measurements
Cetin, Mustafa Efe; Söken, Halil Ersin; Sakai, Shin-ichiro (2022-11-01)
Magnetometers are essential sensors for attitude estimation in small spacecraft due to their robust, inexpensive, and lightweight characteristics. However, the raw measurements contain sensor errors. These errors degrade the attitude estimation accuracy. This study proposes a complete real-time attitude-independent magnetometer calibration algorithm for spinning spacecraft. The recursive algorithm aims to estimate the full error state, bias, scale factor, and non-orthogonality corrections in real-time and w...
Electromagnetic shielding effectiveness of galvanostatically synthesized conducting polypyrrole films in the 300-2000 MHz frequency range
Kaynak, A (1996-07-01)
Both far-field (plane wave) and near field shielding effectiveness (SE) measurements have been conducted on electrochemically synthesized conducting polypyrrole(PPy) films with wide ranging conductivity levels (10(-2) S/cm to 45 S/cm). Go-axial transmission line, TEM test cell and TE(10) waveguide techniques were employed to measure shielding effectiveness as a function of polymer conductivity, frequency and temperature. Highly doped polypyrrole films exhibited shielding levels, above 40 dB from 300 MHz to ...
GPS-based real-time orbit determination of artificial satellites using kalman, particle, unscented kalman and H-infinity filters
Erdoğan, Eren; Karslıoğlu, Mahmut Onur; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2011)
Nowadays, Global Positioning System (GPS) which provide global coverage, continuous tracking capability and high accuracy has been preferred as the primary tracking system for onboard real-time precision orbit determination of Low Earth Orbiters (LEO). In this work, real-time orbit determination algorithms are established on the basis of extended Kalman, unscented Kalman, regularized particle, extended Kalman particle and extended H-infinity filters. Particularly, particle filters which have not been applie...
