We describe the design of a wide temperature range (300 mK-300 K) atomic force microscope/magnetic force microscope with a self-aligned fibre-cantilever mechanism. An alignment chip with alignment groves and a special mechanical design are used to eliminate tedious and time consuming fibre-cantilever alignment procedure for the entire temperature range. A low noise, Michelson fibre interferometer was integrated into the system for measuring deflection of the cantilever. The spectral noise density of the system was measured to be similar to 12 fm/root Hz at 4.2 K at 3 mW incident optical power. Abrikosov vortices in BSCCO(2212) single crystal sample and a high density hard disk sample were imaged at 10 nm resolution to demonstrate the performance of the system. (C) 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.

Design and development of high temperature nickel-based superalloys
Eriş, Rasim; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat; Mekhrabov, Amdulla O.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2017)
Remarkable high temperature mechanical properties of nickel-based superalloys are related with the arrangement of ternary alloying elements in L12-type ordered γ'-Ni3Al intermetallics. Therefore, in this thesis, high temperature site occupancy preference and energetic-structural characteristics of atomic short range ordering of ternary alloying X elements (X = Co, Cr, Hf, Mo, Nb, Pt, Re, Ru, Ta and W, respectively) in Ni75Al21.875X3.125 alloy systems have been studied by combining the statistico-thermodynam...

This thesis presents development of microwave lumped elements for a specific surface-micromachining based technology, a self-contained mechanical characterization of fixed-fixed type beams and realization of a shunt, capacitive-contact RF MEMS switch for millimeter-wave applications. Interdigital capacitor, planar spiral inductor and microstrip patch lumped elements developed in this thesis are tailored for a surface-micromachining technology incorporating a single metallization layer, which allows an easy ...
Investigation of microstructure inhomogeneity in SiCp-reinforced aluminum matrix composites
Gacsi, Zoltan; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Makszimus, Andrea; Pieczonka, Tadeusz (2007-01-01)
The type, volume fraction, size, shape and arrangement of embedded particles influence the mechanical properties of the particle reinforced metal matrix composites. This presents the investigation of the SiC particle and porosity distributions in various aluminum matrix composites produced by cold- and hot-pressing. The inicrostructures were characterized by optical microscopy and stereological parameters. SiC and porosity volume fractions, and the anisotropy distribution function were measured to establish...
Development of atomic force microscopy system and kelvin probe microscopy system for use in semiconductor nanocrystal characterization
Bostancı, Umut; Turan, Raşit; Department of Physics (2007)
Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Kelvin Probe Microscopy (KPM) are two surface characterization methods suitable for semiconductor nanocrystal applications. In this thesis work, an AFM system with KPM capability was developed and implemented. It was observed that, the effect of electrostatic interaction of the probe cantilever with the sample can be significantly reduced by using higher order resonant modes for Kelvin force detection. Germanium nanocrystals were grown on silicon substrate using different g...
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...
