A study based on two-dimensional percolation theory yielding quantitative parameters for optimum connectivity of transparent single-wall carbon nanotube (SWNT) thin films is reported. Optimum SWNT concentration in the filtrated solution was found to be 0.1 mg/L with a volume of 30 mL. Such parameters lead to SWNT fractions in the films of approximately Phi = 1.8 x 10(-3), much below the metallic percolation threshold, which is found to be similar to Phi(c) = 5.5 x 10(-3). Therefore, the performance of transparent carbon nanotube thin-film transistors is limited by the metallic SWNTs, even below their percolation threshold. We show how this effect is related to hopping or tunneling between neighboring metallic tubes.


Heat transfer enhancement in turbulent upward flows of liquid-solid suspensions through vertical annuli

Genetical investigation of Balya-Balikesir lead-zinc mineralizations
Özışık, Gülsevim; Güleç, Nilgün Türkan; Department of Geological Engineering (2009)
This thesis study is concerned with genetical investigation of Balıkesir Balya Pb-Zn mineralization through the mineralogic-petrographic and geochemical examination of the core samples obtained from a total of 9 holes drilled by Eczacıbaşı ESAN Madencilik. The Pb-Zn mineralization in Balya is mainly of vein-type. Wall rocks hosting mineralizations are dacite, dacite porphyry and microdiorite. Major types of alteration are silicification, carbonatization and calc-silicate alteration, each of which is further...
Highly Efficient Nonradiative Energy Transfer from Colloidal Semiconductor Quantum Dots to Wells for Sensitive Noncontact Temperature Probing
Olutas, Murat; Guzelturk, Burak; Keleştemur, Yusuf; Gungor, Kivanc; Demir, Hilmi Volkan (2016-05-01)
This study develops and shows highly efficient exciton-transferring hybrid semiconductor nanocrystal films of mixed dimensionality comprising quasi 0D and 2D colloids. Through a systematic study of time-resolved and steady-state photoluminescence spectroscopy as a function of the donor-to-acceptor molar concentration ratio and temperature, a high-efficiency nonradiative energy transfer (NRET) process from CdZnS/ZnS core/shell quantum dots (QDs) directed to atomically flat CdSe nanoplatelets (NPLs) in their ...
Comparison of geostatistics and artificial neural networks in reservoir property estimation
Arzuman, Sadun; Karahanoğlu, Nurkan; Department of Geological Engineering (2009)
In this dissertation, 3D surface seismic data was integrated with the well logs to be able to define the properties in every location for the reservoir under investigation. To accomplish this task, geostatistical and artificial neural networks (ANN) techniques were employed. First, missing log sets in the study area were estimated using common empirical relationships and ANN. Empirical estimations showed linear dependent results that cannot be generalized. On the other hand, ANNs predicted missing logs with...
Design rules for suspending concentrated mixtures of solids in stirred tanks
Ayrancı Tansık, İnci (2011-10-01)
This study examines complete off-bottom suspension conditions for slurries containing mixtures of solids at a wide range of concentrations. Binary combinations of five different particles; bronze, two sizes of glass beads, ion exchange resin, and nickel were tested with two impellers: the Lightnin A310 and the down pumping 45 degrees PBT. The effect of particle size ratio and density ratio of the two solid phases on N(js) was investigated. Solids loadings were varied from 3 to 56 wt% (weight percent) with w...
