Infrared Spectroscopic Studies on the Dipalmitoyl Phosphatidylcholine Bilayer Interactions with Calcium Phosphate: Effect of Vitamin D2
Toyran, Neslihan; Severcan, Feride (Hindawi Limited, 2002)
In the present work, the interaction of calcium-phosphate with DPPC (dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine) model membranes has been studied in the presence and absence of vitamin D<jats:sub>2</jats:sub>by using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. Calcium and phosphorus are the most abundant elements in the body. They combine in the form of calcium phosphate salt, called hydroxyapatite. Hydroxyapatite is the major structural component of the bone. Calcium phosphate assists with the digestion and absor...
Nonlinear image restoration
Ungan, Cahit Uğur; Demirbaş, Kerim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
This thesis analyzes the process of deblurring of degraded images generated by space-variant nonlinear image systems with Gaussian observation noise. The restoration of blurred images is performed by using two methods; a modified version of the Optimum Decoding Based Smoothing Algorithm and the Bootstrap Filter Algorithm which is a version of Particle Filtering methods. A computer software called MATLAB is used for performing the simulations of image estimation. The results of some simulations for various o...
Interception techniques for direct sequence spread spectrum signals
Karadeniz, Uygar; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In this work interception and spreading sequence estimation of Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) signals, in low signal to noise power ratios is discussed. For interception an approach based on autocorrelation fluctuations is employed and also symbol period is estimated from this interception process. Spreading sequence estimation is performed by using eigenanalysis of the correlation matrix and estimated symbol period. These approaches are applied on different kinds of DSSS signals including 3rd gener...
Photoluminescence study of ge-implanted gase and inse single crystals grown by bridgman method
Bilgi, Seda; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; Department of Physics (2006)
In this study, photoluminescence properties of as grown, Ge implanted GaSe and InSe crystals with doses 1013, 1014, and 1015 ions/cm2 and 1015 ions/cm2 Ge implanted and annealed GaSe and InSe single crystals grown by using 3-zone vertical Bridgman-Stockbarger system have been studied by photoluminescence spectroscopy (PL). PL spectra of as grown and implanted GaSe samples with three different doses have been studied in the ranges within the wavelength interval 570-850 nm and in the temperature ranges betwee...
Dual band microstrip patch antenna structures
Okuducu, Yusuf; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
Wideband and dual band stacked microstrip patch antennas are investigated for the new wideband and dual band applications in the area of telecommunications. In this thesis, aperture-coupled stacked patch antennas are used to increase the bandwidth of the microstrip patch antenna. By this technique, antennas with 51% bandwidth at 6.1 GHz and 43% bandwidth at 8 GHz satisfying S11<-15 dB are designed, manufactured and measured. A dual-band aperture coupled stacked microstrip patch antenna operating at 1.8 GHz ...
