We investigate new classes of artificial materials exhibiting unconventional properties in order to build novel devices operating in the Terahertz regime. The design, fabrication and electromagnetic characterization of tunable meta materials with unit cells based on Split Ring Resonators are presented. By incorporation of a nematic liquid crystal in the structure, we observe a frequency shift in the resonant response over 10% in bandwidth and more than 10 dB change in the signal absorption. We discuss how such a hybrid structure can be exploited for the development of a THz spatial light modulator.

Integrated optical modulators based on photonic crystals
Gövdeli, Alperen; Kocaman, Serdar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
Photonic Crystals, artificial optical structures making manipulation of the light possible, have become a popular platform since their first development. Here, such optical components are studied theoretically and their unusual behaviors are utilized for integrated optics components. In particular, ability to change the effective index contribution of photonic crystals is exploited for the design of a low-voltage and area efficient integrated optical modulator. Variety of different aspects are compared betw...
Electromagnetic wave absorption potential of SiC-based ceramic woven fabrics in the GHz range
Tan, E.; Kagawa, Y.; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (2009-03-01)
This article investigates the electromagnetic wave-absorbing properties of SiC-based ceramic woven fabrics. The electrical conductivity of ceramic woven fabrics was modified by heat treatment in air, resulting in oxidation, and the electromagnetic wave absorption potential of single- and double-layer ceramic woven fabrics were determined in the 17-40 GHz frequency range using the free-space method. The absorption potentials of ceramic woven fabrics of different chemical composition and weave were correlated...
Integrated optical modulators with zero index metamaterials based on photonic crystal slab waveguides
Yildirim, Mustafa; GÖVDELİ, ALPEREN; Kocaman, Serdar (2019-01-01)
A novel integrated optical modulator design is presented using zero index metamaterial-based Mach-Zehnder Interferometer with photonic crystal phase shifters. The phase modulation relies on the shift between the photonic bandgaps having non-zero and zero effective refractive indices. A small change in the bulk index results in an effective index change between the arms of the MZI due to the disturbance of the band structure. Thus, such a structure provides a new approach for phase modulation on integrated o...
Epoxidation of olefins catalyzed by a molybdenum-Schiff base complex anchored in the pores of SBA-15
Bagherzadeh, Mojtaba; Zare, Maryam; Amini, Mojtaba; Salemnoush, Taghi; Akbayrak, Serdar; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2014-12-01)
Novel mesostructured hybrid materials containing a molybdenum Schiff base complex grafted on the internal surface of SBA-15 pores were prepared by introducing MoO2(acac)(2) into a mesoporous silica functionalized with Schiff base ligands. The SBA-15 supports modified by an amine or salicylaldehyde were obtained by co-condensation of tetraethylorthosilicate and the corresponding organosilane in the presence of Pluronic P123 surfactant as a structure directing agent using bis[3-(trimethoxysilyl)propyl]amine o...
