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...
Nanoscale optical parametric amplification through super-nonlinearity induction
Aşırım, Özüm Emre; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2022-08-01)
Optical parametric amplification (OPA) is a nonlinear process through which a low-power input wave is amplified by extracting energy from an interaction medium that is energized by a high-intensity pump wave. For a significant amplification of an input wave, a sufficiently long interaction medium is required, which is usually on the order of a few centimeters. Therefore, in the small scale, OPA is considered unfeasible, and this prevents it from being employed in micro and nanoscale devices. There have been...
Effects of array guided surface waves on radiation characteristics of a finite planar printed dipole array
Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Pathak, PH (2004-06-26)
The presence of surface waves different from the conventional grounded dielectric substrate surface wave modes, which can be excited on a finite periodic radiating array of printed dipoles, at frequencies for which the spacing between dipoles is typically less than half a wavelength is studied. The effects of such array guided surface waves on the array radiation characteristics are investigated. Techniques to suppress these surface waves are also discussed.
Modeling of split step parabolic wave equation using the graphics processing unit

Electromagnetic (EM) wave propagation is an important phenomenon in modeling radar or communication systems. To develop these kinds of reliable systems, the behavior of EM waves and cases that affect the propagation must be handled correctly. EM waves are strongly affected by atmospheric conditions such as temperature, pressure, and humidity, and by global circulation patterns. When they propagate in troposphere, their energy decreases due to change in medium. Other than natural effects, buildings, non-flat...
