We demonstrate chip-scale flat-top filters at near-IR wavelengths using negative index photonic crystal based MachZehnder interferometers. Supported by full three-dimensional numerical simulations, we experimentally demonstrate a new approach for engineering high-pass, low-pass, bandpass, and band-reject filters, based on designing the photonic band diagram both within the bandgap frequency region and away from it. We further show that our approach can be used to design filters that have tunable multilevel response for different sections of the spectrum and for different polarizations. This configuration enables deterministic control of the bandwidth and the rejection ratio of filters for integrated photonic circuits.

BULUTAY, C; PRASAD, S (1993-06-01)
Three-dimensional condensed asymmetrical node, variable grid, transmission-line matrix (TLM) method has been used in analyzing several millimeter waveguides on anisotropic substrates. The dispersion characteristics of image guides together with field and energy confinement properties at millimeter-wave frequencies have been investigated. Edge coupled microstrip line on a uniaxial substrate is analyzed for the even and odd mode dispersion characteristics. Finally the same analysis is repeated for bilateral f...
Rectangular waveguide mode converters for creating monopulse radiation patterns
Duman, Onurhan; Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
For waveguide structures, there is an alternative way of creating three monopulse radiation patterns by using mode converters and radiating different waveguide modes (not only TE10 mode) for creating different monopulse radiation patterns. In the literature, different radiating modes are offered depending on waveguide shape. For rectangular waveguide, one suggestion is to radiate TE10 mode for the creation of sum channel radiation pattern, to radiate TE20 mode for the creation of azimuth difference radiatio...
Time-domain mapping of electromagnetic ray movement inside anisotropic spherical resonator
Biber, A; Golick, A; Tomak, Mehmet (2002-09-01)
This paper presents the analytical proof of "Time-Domain Mapping Method" for the spherical resonator made up of uniaxial crystal. In this way, the main types of caustics inside the spherical resonator made up of uniaxial crystal, which were investigated numerically before, are confirmed analytically. It is engraved that the problem of the ray flow inside the spherical resonator can be reduced to the problem of the ray flow inside metal cavity shaped as spheroid.
Analysis and design of slotted substrate integrated waveguide antenna on cylindrical surface
Bayraktar, Ömer; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This thesis presents novel traveling wave conformal shunt slot arrays on cylindrical substrate integrated waveguide (CSIW) placed on a cylindrical surface in the circumferential direction at K-band. Mutual couplings of longitudinal slots on broad wall of CSIW are formulated and active admittance formulas of the slots are derived which are used in Elliott’s design procedure to design slotted CSIW arrays. The designs are carried out at 25 GHz using non-uniform and uniform slot separations. The non uniform slo...
On-Line Application of SHEM by Particle Swarm Optimization to Grid-Connected, Three-Phase, Two-Level VSCs with Variable DC Link Voltage
Guvengir, Umut; ÇADIRCI, IŞIK; Ermiş, Muammer (2018-08-01)
This paper is devoted to an otablen-line application of the selective harmonic elimination method (SHEM) to three-phase, two-level, grid-connected voltage source converters (VSCs) by particle swarm optimization (PSO). In such systems, active power can be controlled by the phase shift angle, and reactive power by the modulation index, against variations in the direct current (DC) link voltage. Some selected, low-odd-order harmonic components in the line-to-neutral output voltage waveforms are eliminated by c...
