The achievement of wideband high-gain optical parametric amplification has not been shown in micrometer-scale cavities. In this paper we have computationally investigated the optical parametric amplification process in a few micrometer-long dispersive microresonator. By performing a gain medium resonance frequency dependent analysis of optical parametric amplification, we have found that it is possible to achieve a wideband high-gain optical amplification in a dispersive microresonator. In order to account for the effects of dispersion (modeled by the polarization damping coefficient) and the resonance frequency of the gain medium on optical parametric amplification, we have solved the wave equation in parallel with the nonlinear equation of electron cloud motion, using the finite difference time domain method. Then we have determined the resonance frequency values that yield an enhanced or a resonant case of optical parametric amplification, via gain factor optimization. It was observed that if the microresonator is more dispersive (has a lower polarization damping coefficient), then there are more resonance frequencies that yield an optical gain resonance. At these gain resonances, a very wideband, high-gain optical amplification seems possible in the micron scale, which, to our knowledge, has not been previously reported in the context of nonlinear wave mixing theory.

This paper presents the primitive results of high resolution Magnetic Resonance (MR) Imaging experiments that are performed for spinal cord segmentation purposes. In the study, it is aimed to image the epidural space, the cerebrospinal fluid, the white matter and the gray matter tissues in the lower cervical and upper thoracic regions of the spine with a maximum voxel size of 1x1x1 mm(3). For this purpose, the MRI sequences providing T2 and T2* images and used for spinal cord segmentation in the literature ...

Ulusan, Hasan; Chamanian, Salar; Zorlu, Ozge; Muhtaroglu, Ali; Külah, Haluk (2018-03-23)
This paper presents an ultra-low power interface circuit to stimulate auditory nerves through fully-implantable cochlear implants (FICIs). The interface circuit senses signals generated from a multi-frequency piezoelectric sensor array, and generates neural stimulation current according to input sound level. Firstly, piezoelectric sensor output is amplified, and compressed with an ultra-low power logarithmic amplifier (LA). This significantly reduces power by eliminating the compression in the next stages. ...
Super-Gain Optical Parametric Amplification in Dielectric Micro-Resonators via BFGS Algorithm-Based Non-Linear Programming
Asirim, Ozum Emre; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2020-03-01)
The goal of this paper is to show that super-gain optical parametric amplification can be achieved even 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 we call the stimulus wave. In order to accomplish this, we have performed a dispersion analysis via computational modeling of the electric polarization density in terms of the non-linear electron clo...
Magnetic Resonance - Electrical Impedance Tomography (MR-EIT) Research at METU
Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat (2006-09-01)
Following development of magnetic resonance current density imaging (MRCDI), magnetic resonance - electrical impedance tomography (MR-EIT) has emerged as a promising approach to produce high resolution conductivity images. Electric current applied to a conductor results in a potential field and a magnetic flux density distribution. Using a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, the magnetic flux density distribution can be reconstructed as in MRCDI. The flux density is related to the current density distr...

The manual delineation of region of interest (RoI) in 3D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the prostate is time-consuming and subjective. Correct identification of prostate tissue is helpful to define a precise RoI to be used in CAD systems in clinical practice during diagnostic imaging, radiotherapy and monitoring the progress of disease. Conditional GAN (cGAN), cycleGAN and U-Net models and their performances were studied for the detection and segmentation of prostate tissue in 3D multi-parametric MRI s...
