The aim of this thesis is to show that super-gain electromagnetic wave amplification can be achieved in a small micro-resonator using high-intensity ultrashort pump waves, provided that the frequencies of the ultrashort pulses are tuned to maximize the intracavity magnitude of the wave to be amplified, which is called the stimulus wave. In order to accomplish this, a dispersion analysis is performed via numerical modeling of the polarization density in terms of the nonlinear electron cloud motion. The polarization density is then concurrently solved with the wave equation for the electric field. Through a series of nonlinear programming integrated finite difference time domain simulations, we have determined the optimum pump wave frequencies that simultaneously maximize the stored electric energy density and the polarization density inside a micro-resonator by using the Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno (BFGS) optimization algorithm. Based on the results of our numerical experiments, we propose that micrometer-scale achievement of super-gain electromagnetic wave amplification is possible in a micro-resonator with high-intensity ultrashort “pump wave” pulses, by determining the optimum frequencies that concurrently maximize the stored electric energy density and the polarization density in a dielectric interaction medium.

Near-field scanning in the time domain on a spherical surface - A formulation using the free-space Green's function
Koc, S; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Buyukdura, OM (2001-10-01)
Two formulations for determining the characteristics of an unknown source of acoustic waves using the measurement of its field at its near zone are presented. The measurement in both cases is to be performed on a spherical scan surface which encapsulates the source. The first is for an ideal probe which measures the field at its location. The knowledge of the field is sufficient; its normal derivative is not required. In the second formulation a realistic probe is considered. This time it is required only t...
A new differential formulation of acoustic scattering by rotationally symmetrical penetrable scatterers
Günalp, Nilgün; TOSUN, H (1994-07-01)
A new differential formulation is presented for acoustic wave scattering from rotationally symmetric penetrable bodies. The numerical implementation of this formulation is fairly simple, and comprises basically the construction of the state-transition matrix of a system of differential equations and the solution of a matrix equation. The validity and the accuracy of the numerical scheme are tested considering objects of known scattering behavior. Other numerical applications are also presented to demonstrat...
Transient waves in viscoelastic cylindrical layered media
Abu Alshaikh, I; Turhan, D; Mengi, Y (2002-09-01)
Propagation of two-dimensional transient waves in viscoelastic cylindrical layered media is investigated. The cylindrical multilayered medium consists of N different isotropic, homogeneous and linearly viscoelastic layers with two discrete relaxation times. A numerical technique which combines the complex Fourier series with the method of characteristics is employed to obtain the solutions. The numerical results are displayed in curves denoting the variations of the stress and displacement components with t...
Collision of Gravitational Waves: axisymmetric PP Waves
Onuk, Ahmet Emre; Karasu, Atalay; Department of Physics (2007)
The collision of impulsive gravitational waves, electromagnetic plane waves with collinear polarization and, especially, plane fronted parallel waves (pp waves) are considered. The solution of axisymmetric pp waves is reviewed and the structures of the resulting space-times are investigated with the help of curvature invariants.
