Electron scattering rates in metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes are studied using an atomic force microscope as an electrical probe. From the scaling of the resistance of the same nanotube with length in the low- and high-bias regimes, the mean-free paths for both regimes are inferred. The observed scattering rates are consistent with calculations for acoustic-phonon scattering at low biases and zone boundary/optical phonon scattering at high biases.


Nanoscale Thermal Transport in Single, Bilayer Graphene, and Graphite
Gholivand, Hamed; Donmezer, Nazli (2016-10-12)
In this study, ab-initio calculations were performed to obtain phonon dispersions of single, bilayer graphene, and graphite structures. Using these dispersions single mode relaxation times, thermal conductivities, and mean free paths (MFPs) have been calculated. Finally, calculated variables were used to understand the effects of additional layers to thermophysical properties, phonon mode contributions to thermal conductivity, and the limits for ballistic-diffusive heat transfer of single, bilayer graphene,...
Electron microscope visualization of multiphase fluids contained in closed carbon nanotubes
Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Nıcholls, Alan; Gogotsı, Yury (2005-01-01)
Aqueous multiphase fluids trapped in closed multiwall carbon nanotubes are visualized with high resolution using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The hydrothermally synthesized nanotubes have inner diameter of 70 nm and wall thickness 20 nm, on average. The nanotubes are hydrophilic due to oxygen groups attached on their wall surfaces. Segregated liquid inclusions contained in the nanotubes under high pressure can be mobilized by heating. A resistive heating stage is utilized to heat a thin membrane ...
Thermal characterisation of quantum cascade lasers with Fabry Perot modes
Gundogdu, Sinan; Pisheh, Hadi Sedaghat; Demir, Abdullah; Guenoven, Mete; AYDINLI, ATİLLA; Sirtori, Carlo (2018-04-26)
Quantum cascade lasers are coherent light sources that rely on intrersubband transition in periodic semiconductor quantum well structures. They operate at frequencies from mid-infrared to terahertz. In cases of long wavelength and typical low thermal conductivity of the active region, temperature rise in the active region during operation is a major concern. Thermal conductivity of QCL epi-layers differ significantly from the values of bulk semiconductors and measurement of the thermal conductivity of epi-l...
Determining the asymmetry in supernova explosions by studying the radial velocities of OB runaway stars
Dinçel, Baha; Yerli, Sinan Kaan; Ankay, Aşkın; Department of Physics (2012)
Understanding the asymmetry in core collapse supernova explosions is pointed out by various astrophysicists as it is the key factor in determining the observational properties of the pulsars. The initial kick given by the ex- plosion to the pulsar affects its spin period and space velocity. Up to now, although the observations do not show a direct relation between the observational features of the pulsar and its space velocity, they show a clear relation between the spin period and the magnetic field streng...
Analysis of reconstruction performance of magnetic resonance conductivity tensor imaging (MRCTI) using simulated measurements
DEĞİRMENCİ, EVREN; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat (2017-01-01)
Magnetic resonance conductivity tensor imaging (MRCTI) was proposed recently to produce electrical conductivity images of anisotropic tissues. Similar to magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MREIT), MRCTI uses magnetic field and boundary potential measurements obtained utilizing magnetic resonance imaging techniques. MRCTI reconstructs tensor images of anisotropic conductivity whereas MREIT reconstructs isotropic conductivity images. In this study, spatial resolution and linearity of five rec...
