Carbon-based electronic materials have received much attention since the discovery and elucidation of the properties of the nanotube, fullerene allotropes, and conducting polymers. Amorphous carbon, graphite, graphene, and diamond have also been the topics of intensive research. In accordance with this interest, we herein provide the details of a novel and facile method for synthesis of poly(hydridocarbyne) (PHC), a preceramic carbon polymer reported to undergo a conversion to diamond-like carbon (DLC) upon pyrolysis and also provide electrical characterization after low-temperature processing and pyrolysis of this material. The results indicate that the strongly insulating polymer becomes notably conductive in bulk form upon heating and contains interspersed micro-and nanostructures, which are the subject of ongoing research.

Simulation of equal channel angular pressing applied to produce structures with ultrafine-sized grains
Karpuz, Pinar; Şimşir, Caner; Gür, Cemil Hakan (Inderscience Publishers, 2009-01-01)
Severe plastic deformation methods are of great interest in industrial forming applications, as they give rise to significant refinement in microstructures and improvements in mechanical and physical properties. In the 'equal channel angular pressing (ECAP)', which is the most common method for production of ultrafine grained bulk samples, very high plastic strains are introduced into the bulk material without any change in cross section. In this study, the plastic deformation behaviour of the materials sub...
Surface-enhanced Raman scattering spectroscopy via gold nanostars
Nalbant Esentürk, Emren (Wiley, 2009-01-01)
Anisotropic metallic nanoparticles (NPs) have unique optical properties, which lend them to applications such as surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy. Star-shaped gold (Au) NPs were prepared in aqueous solutions by the seed-mediated growth method and tested for Raman enhancement using 2-mercaptopyridine (2-MPy) and crystal violet (CV) probing molecules. For both molecules, the SERS activity of the nanostars was notably stronger than that of the spherical Au NPs of similar size. The Raman en...
A new framework for simulation of heat treatments
Şimşir, Caner; Gür, Cemil Hakan (Inderscience Publishers, 2010-12-01)
In this study, a mathematical framework based on finite element method (FEM) capable of predicting temperature history, evolution of phases and internal stresses during thermal treatment of metals and alloys was developed. The model was integrated into the commercial FEA software MSC.Marc® by user subroutines. The accuracy of the model was verified by simulating the quenching of eccentrically drilled steel cylinders. Simulation results were justified via SEM observations and XRD residual stress measurements.

The effect of coupling of unalloyed Mg and Mg-alloys (AZ91 and WE43) with Ti6Al4V alloy on corrosion and degradation behaviours of produced composites has been investigated in simulated body fluid (SBF) by hydrogen evolution, and surface and electrochemical characterization techniques. Combining of unalloyed Mg with Ti6Al4V intensified galvanic corrosion and catastrophic failure occurred by initiation of microcracks formed by sudden hydrogen gas evolution. In contrast to other composites, Ti6Al4V-AZ91 compo...
Investigation of as-quenched and tempered commercial steels by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise method
Gür, Cemil Hakan; Çam, İbrahim (Inderscience Publishers, 2006-01-01)
This study aims to characterise as-quenched and tempered steels by the Magnetic Barkhausen Noise method, and to contribute to optimisation of heat treatment processes. Identical austenitisation and quenching procedures were applied to SAE 1040 and SAE 4140 specimens to eliminate the effect of grain size. Samples were tempered at 200°C and 600°C for 2 hours. Microstructures were characterised by metallographic examinations and hardness measurements. Amplitude, position and frequency spectrum of signals were ...
