An experimental approach to period doubling bifurcations in plasmas

2017-01-01
Summary form only given. A direct current (dc) driven semiconductor-gas discharge system is designed to study nonlinear behavior and period doubling features experimentally. Numerical analysis and theoretical studies show that the period doubling is expected in the discharge 1 . The plasma is generated between two planar electrodes separated by a narrow gap: cathode is undoped Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) and anode is an IndiumTin Oxide (ITO) coated glass electrode. The GaAs is extensively studied in solid-state physics 2 , since it is a promising material with the properties of high carrier mobility, wide band sensitivity and large absorption coefficient. In this experimental setup, GaAs is preferred since it can be operated without the requirements of cyrocooling and remains in a linear regime. The plasma is obtained in 1mm gap using nitrogen gas at partial atmospheric pressure. Fluctuations observed in the discharge are investigated using plasma current (I), voltage (V) and optical emission from the plasma. These data sets are collected as long time series data, and are acquired numerous times under a parametric scan of applied voltage. At lower applied voltage, single frequency oscillations are present in the measured fluctuations. By increasing the applied voltage, first harmonic frequency generation takes place and the fundamental frequency shifts towards higher frequency values. By increasing the voltage at even higher values, a period doubling is observed in the fluctuations. Harmonics of the fundamental frequency and their sub-harmonic oscillations appear in the discharge. We are currently observing 10 kHz to 100 kHz fluctuation measurements indicating that the system is nonlinear in nature. Manifestation of the period doubling in the discharge is studied in detail.

Extension to a hybrid UTD-MoM approach for the efficient analysis of radiation/scattering from tapered array distributions
Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Chou, HT; Nepa, P (2000-07-21)
Summary form only given. A hybrid method, which combines the UTD ray technique with the numerical MoM approach has been developed to provide a relatively efficient analysis of EM radiation/scattering from an electrically large, planar, periodic, finite array. In this paper, an extension of the hybrid UTD-MoM approach of Aydin Civi, Pathak and Chou (see URSI EMT meeting, Thessaloniki, Greece, May 1998) is presented to deal with tapered array distributions, as well as periodic arrays that may support more tha...
Promoting the investment on IPPs for optimal grid planning
Tor, Osman; Mohammad, Shahidehpour; Güven, Ali Nezih (2011-07-29)
Summary form only given. This paper presents a transmission expansion planning (TEP) model which coordinates investment decisions in monopolistic transmission and decentralized generator sectors. The proposed planning approach gauges transmission congestion and security constraints with respect to transmission investments while promoting investments on independent power produces (IPPs) through incentive payments. The paper includes discussions on incentive mechanisms and prioritization among qualified IPPs ...
Optical Waveguides Written Deep Inside Silicon by Femtosecond Laser
Pavlov, Ihor; Pavlova, Svitlana; Kadan, Viktor; Makey, Ghaith; Turnali, Ahmet; Colakoglu, Tahir; Yavuz, Ozgun; İLDAY, Fatih Ömer (2017-06-29)
Summary form only given. Photonic devices that can guide, transfer or modulate light are highly desired in electronics and integrated silicon photonics. Through the nonlinear processes taking place during ultrafast laser-material interaction, laser light can impart permanent refractive index change in the bulk of materials, and thus enables the fabrication of different optical elements inside the material. However, due to strong multi-photon absorption of Si resulting delocalization of the light by free car...
(In)Distinctive Role of Long Non-Coding RNAs in Common and Rare Ovarian Cancers
Sabol, Maja; Calleja-Agius, Jean; Di Fiore, Riccardo; Suleiman, Sherif; Özcan Kabasakal, Süreyya; Ward, Mark P.; Ozretic, Petar (2021-10-01)
Simple Summary:& nbsp;Ovarian cancers (OCs) are the most lethal form of gynecological tumors. The commonest are high-grade serous OCs, while rare OCs originate from many different cell types, such as epithelial, germ cell, sex cord-stromal, or mixed types. Rare OCs have distinct molecular characteristics, prognosis, and therapeutic approaches. However, all ovarian malignancies mostly share the same problem: late diagnosis due to the lack of specific symptoms. Therefore, there is a perpetual need to discover...
Pseudoscalar-meson decuplet-baryon coupling constants in light cone QCD
Alıyev, Tahmasıb; Özpineci, Altuğ; Savcı, Mustafa (American Physical Society (APS), 2009-11-01)
Taking into account the SU(3)(f) breaking effects, the strong coupling constants of the pi, K, and eta mesons with decuplet baryons are calculated within the light cone QCD sum rules method. It is shown that all coupling constants, even in the case of SU(3)(f) breaking, are described in terms of only one universal function. It is shown that for Xi(*0)->Xi(*0)eta, transition violation of SU(3)(f) symmetry is very large and for other channels when SU(3)(f) symmetry is violated, its maximum value constitutes 1...
