This study presents design, analysis, optimization, and fabrication of umbrella structures as an efficient quarter wave absorber within the Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) range for uncooled IR detectors. Both the effect of the ni-chrome (NiCr) layer and effect of varying pixel pitch sizes on the IR absorption performance of the umbrella structures are examined. An average of 96% absorption is measured for the optimized case within the LWIR range.

In this thesis, analysis, design and implementation of a three-phase 400V, 20 kVA Current Source Inverter (CSI) have been carried out for grid-connected photovoltaic applications based on the multi-string inverter concept. This inverter can be used in large scale photovoltaic (PV) applications by connecting many in parallel at 400V and coupling to medium voltage through a common transformer. The power stage of the inverter is based on the basic full-bridge CSC topology and each power semiconductor which mus...
Development of high performance uncooled infrared detector materials
Kebapçı, Başak; Akın, Tayfun; Turan, Raşit; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2011)
This thesis reports both the optimizations of the vanadium oxide (VOx) thin film as an active infrared detector material by the magnetron sputtering deposition method and its use during fabrication of proper resistors for the microbolometers. Vanadium oxide is a preferred material for microbolometers, as it provides high TCR value, low noise, and reasonable resistance, and a number of high-tech companies have used this material to obtain state-of-the-art microbolometer arrays. This material is first used in...
