We present computational analysis of optical nanostructures, including but not limited to frequency-selective surfaces, metamaterials, nanoantennas, nanowires, and photonic crystals. A rigorous implementation based on surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is developed for the analysis of such three-dimensional complex structures, without resorting to infinity, self-similarity, periodicity or homogeneity assumptions. The developed simulation environment provides accurate analysis of nanooptical structures to expand our knowledge on these important components of the state-of-the-art technology.

Guler, Sadri; Solak, Birol; Gür, Uğur Meriç; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-09-27)
We present computational analysis of optical chiral metamaterials that consist of helical metallic elements. At optical frequencies, metals are modeled as penetrable objects with plasmonic properties. A rigorous implementation based on boundary element methods and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is used for efficient and accurate analysis of three-dimensional structures. Numerical results demonstrate interesting polarization-rotating characteristics of such arrays with helical elements, as well as t...
Fast and accurate analysis of optical metamaterials using surface integral equations and the parallel multilevel fast multipole algorithm
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2013-09-13)
We present fast and accurate simulations of optical metamaterials using surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Problems are formulated with the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation and solved iteratively with MLFMA, which is parallelized using the hierarchical strategy on distributed-memory architectures. Realistic metamaterials involving dielectric, perfectly conducting, and plasmonic regions of finite extents are solved rigorously with the...
Ensemble monte carlo simulation of quantum well infrared photodetectors, and inp based long wavelength quantum well infrared photodetectors for thermal imaging
Cellek, Oray Orkun; Beşikci, Cengiz; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
Quantum well infrared photodetectors (QWIP) utilize quantum wells of large bandgap materials to detect infrared radiation. When compared to conventional low bandgap LWIR photodetectors, the QWIP technology offers largest format thermal imagers with much better uniformity. The theoretical part of this study includes the development of a QWIP ensemble Monte Carlo simulator. Capture paths of electrons to quantum wells are simulated in detail. For standard AlGaAs/GaAs QWIPs, at medium and high E-fields L valley...
Effective mass and peculiarity of optical properties of Cadmium Sulfide nanoparticles
Muradov, M. B.; Eyvazova, G. M.; Turan, Raşit; Maharramov, A. M. (2008-12-01)
X-ray diffraction data, electron microscope and optical properties of cadmium sulfide nanoparticles were analyzed. It is shown that the value of the reduced effective mass of charge carriers in nanoparticles differs from bulk crystals. Changes of effective mass and "red shift" in values of band gap are explained by the occurrence of additional electronic potential in nanoparticles.
Electronic structure of a many-electron spherical quantum dot with an impurity
Sahin, M; Tomak, Mehmet (American Physical Society (APS), 2005-09-01)
We investigate the electronic structure of a many-electron spherical quantum dot with and without hydrogenic impurity. The number of electrons is taken as N=18. The density functional theory is used within local density approximation. Total energy, chemical potential, addition energy spectra, and the shell structure are determined and the results obtained are compared for cases with and without impurity. It is observed that the capacitive energy with the impurity increases in the 1s shell with respect to th...
