Phase Resolved X-Ray Spectral Analysis of Intermediate Polars EX Hya and FO Aqr

Pekon, Yakup
Balman, Şölen
Intermediate Polars (IPs): EX Hya and FO Aqr whichs are a subclass of Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) where a white dwarf with magnetic field strength of about 1-10 MG accretes material from a main sequence companion through a truncated disc. In this talk we present orbital and spin phase-resolved X-ray spectroscopy of EX Hya and orbital phase-resolved X-ray spectroscopy of FO Aqr. We utilize XMM-Newton archive data of these objects for analysis. We investigate the change of the source spectrum over the spin and orbital periods. This analysis enhances our understanding about the accretion structure in these systems, temperature and composition of the X-ray emitting region together with the structure of the outer accretion disc and absorption in the system


Numerical analysis, design and two port equivalent circuit models for split ring resonator arrays
Yaşar Örten, Pınar; Sayan, Gönül; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Split ring resonator (SRR) is a metamaterial structure which displays negative permeability values over a relatively small bandwidth around its magnetic resonance frequency. Unit SRR cells and arrays have been used in various novel applications including the design of miniaturized microwave devices and antennas. When the SRR arrays are combined with the arrays of conducting wires, left handed materials can be constructed with the unusual property of having negative valued effective refractive indices. In th...
Pure gauge spin-orbit couplings
Shikakhwa, M. S. (2017-01-17)
Planar systems with a general linear spin-orbit interaction (SOI) that can be cast in the form of a non-Abelian pure gauge field are investigated using the language of non-Abelian gauge field theory. A special class of these fields that, though a 2 x 2 matrix, are Abelian are seen to emerge and their general form is given. It is shown that the unitary transformation that gauges away these fields induces at the same time a rotation on the wave function about a fixed axis but with a space-dependent angle, bot...
Well-Conditioned 2D Models of Rod Arrays for Accelerating 3D Simulations of Photonic Crystals and Plasmonic Structures
Hatipoglu, Murat Enes; Sever, Emrah ; Dikmen,Fatih ; Eris, Ozgur; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2021-01-01)
Rod arrays consisting of finite-length cylinders are commonly used in the design of high-frequency resonance scattering assemblies, such as plasmonic, photonic-crystal, and near-zero-index structures. During the optimization of these three-dimensional structures by means of genetic algorithms, analyses with three-dimensional solvers, such as the multilevel fast multipole algorithm, create a time bottleneck On the other hand, simulation results in many applications show features that are independent of longi...
Nano-scale phase separation in amorphous Fe-B alloys: Atomic and cluster ordering
AYKOL, Muratahan; Mehrabov, Amdulla; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat (Elsevier BV, 2009-01-01)
Nano-scale phase separation encountered in metallic glasses is investigated for amorphous Fe80B20 and Fe83B17 alloys in an interaction field calculated via electronic theory of alloys in pseudopotential approximation combined with MC equilibration and reverse MC simulation. The phenomenon is identified regarding three topological aspects: (1) pure Fe-clusters as large as similar to 0.9 nm and pure Fe-contours similar to 0.72 nm thick are found to exist; (2) Fe-rich highly deformed-bcc regions are observed; ...
Quantum chemical treatment of nitroguanidine and its mono ionic forms
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Elsevier BV, 2004-07-26)
Nitroguanidine and its mono ionic forms have been subjected to AM1 (UHF) type semiempirical as well as 6-31G** (UHF) type ab initio molecular orbital calculations. The stability order has been found to be anion > neutral > cation. The calculations have revealed that contrary to some other explosive chemicals, the charge development are accompanied by only moderate changes in bond lengths and bond angles in the case of nitroguanidine.
