This paper intends to demonstrate the feasibility of a miniaturized multi-purpose metamaterial sensor that can be effectively used for chemical, biological and pressure sensing in microwave and terahertz applications. This novel sensor design makes use of the double-sided split ring resonator (DSRR) topology that is modified to have an additional sensing medium sandwiched between two identical broadside coupled SRR unit cells. The resonance frequency of the resulting DSRR sensor shifts as the dielectric permittivity or thickness of this interlayer medium changes in response to variations in an environmental parameter such as temperature, humidity, density, concentration or pressure. As a proof of concept study, both numerical and experimental results are presented with very good agreement for a multi-functional miniaturized metamaterial sensor prototype operating in X-band. Simulations for three different real-life scenarios are also presented for this sensor topology to demonstrate a moisture sensor, a density sensor and a temperature sensor with very good sensitivities where the interlayer medium is occupied by sawdust, silica aerogel and seawater, respectively.

Researches about the interaction of single atoms with electromagnetic field create the foundation of cavity quantum electrodynamics (CQED) technology. Microlasers, photon bandgap structures and quantum dot structures in cavities are the initial examples of Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics. This thesis is focused on the comparison of multi-cavity arrays for on-chip wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) applications in the weak coupling regime. Firstly, single QD embedded cavity (cavity QD EIT) and cavity-cavi...

Bakir, Mehmet; KARAASLAN, MUHARREM; Dincer, Furkan; Akgol, Oguzhan; Sabah, Cumali (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2016-08-10)
The proposed study presents an electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesting and density sensor application based on a perfect metamaterial absorber (MA) in microwave frequency regime. In order to verify the absorption behavior of the structure, its absorption behavior is experimentally tested along with the energy harvesting and sensing abilities. The absorption value is experimentally found 0.9 at the resonance frequency of 4.75 GHz. In order to harvest the EM energy, chips resistors are used. In addition, the s...

We present a numerical study of nano-cavities used in solar cells for energy harvesting, by employing surface integral equations based on Maxwell's equations in the frequency domain and an efficient solver based on the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). With the three-dimensional modeling of surfaces, we obtain accurate results to evaluate the performances of different structures for improved power absorption in solar cells. This paper includes a brief description of the developed solver and initi...
Dynamic modeling, control and adaptive envelope protection system for horizontal axiswind turbines
Şahin, Mustafa; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2018)
In this thesis study, a wind turbine envelope protection system is introduced to protect turbines throughout the below and above rated regions. The proposed protection system, which is based on a neural network, adapts to various turbines and operational conditions. It can keep the turbine within pre-defined envelope limits whenever a safe operation is about to be violated. The avoidance is realized by control limiting technique applied to the blade pitch controller output, thereby adjusting the blade pitch...
