We present a comparative study of nanoantennas for maximum power enhancements at their feed gaps. Due to frequency-dependent plasmonic properties of metals at optical frequencies, removing the frequency-size relationship used in perfectly conducting models, two-dimensional analysis involving both frequency and geometric scaling is performed to accurately assess the performances of different geometries. Computationally intensive simulations involving thousands of full-wave solutions are carried out by employing surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. Tens of different structures, which demonstrate diverse enhancement properties, are considered and compared with each other. Numerical simulations show favorable properties of different geometries depending on the range of the optical frequency.

We present multiband nanoantennas that can provide large enhancement factors at multiple frequencies in the optical spectrum. The structures are obtained by opening slits on the conventional bowtie designs. Since frequency/geometry scaling is not valid due to plasmonic properties of metals, two dimensional scans are performed using a rigorous solver based on surface integral equations and method of moments. The results demonstrate the feasibility of nanoantennas with multiband characteristics that can be us...

Development of a pressure-based solver for both incompressible and compressible flows
Denk, Kerem; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
The aim of this study is to develop a two-dimensional pressure-based Navier-Stokes solver for incompressible/compressible flows. Main variables are Cartesian velocity components, pressure and temperature while density is linked to pressure via equation of state. Modified SIMPLE algorithm is used to achieve pressure-velocity coupling. Finite Volume discretisation is performed on non-orthogonal and boundary-fitted grids. Collocated variable arrangement is preferred because of its advantage on staggered arrang...

Akhmet, Marat; FEN, MEHMET ONUR (2014-01-01)
In this study, a new method of chaos generation is introduced. It is shown that, in general, the presented method cannot be reduced to generalized synchronization of chaotic systems. Simulations which confirm the effectiveness of the approach are illustrated. © CSP - Cambridge, UK; I&S - Florida, USA, 2014.
