The primary objective of this proposal is to carry the results, knowledge, and international collaboration gained throughout our first project (NANOBIOSOENS) that was conducted as a part of IRSES call in the last 3 years to the next level, which will focus on nanodevices and advanced applications. The proposed research project is focused on two different applications, main one being on biosensors and bioelectronics and the other one on potential solar energy science. The results obtained during NANOBIOSENS were very promising opening interesting possibilities to more detailed investigations, which produced around 25 publications with around 50 conference presentations. At the end of the NANOBIOSENS project, our success was published in the PROJECTS magazine as “Biosensors Received the Nanotreatment”. The obtained results along with the synergy formed among these 6 international partners motivated us to carry our research to a more advanced level. With this motivation, the objective of the currently proposed project is to test the synthesized and integrated nanomaterials in two of the most appealing applications that are “biosystems and solar energy”. This had been the motivation for this group to continue the researcher and knowledge exchanges for the above mentioned higher level of scientific objective that is hoped to be achieved throughout the proposed NANODEV project. In terms of participants, there will be two main distinctions of NANODEV with respect to the NANOBIOSENS project. The first one is our new partner who joined us from CHINA and is an expert in the field of nanomaterial synthesis, design of new bioactive compounds, and biosensor development. The second distinction is the newly built research center at METU, Center for Solar Energy Research and Applications. With these two additional assets, it will be possible in NANODEV to test the jointly made nanomaterial integrated compounds in two different fields of applications.


Nanosensors based on nanomaterials (NANOBIOSENS)
Akata Kurç, Burcu(2011-12-31)
The primary objective of this proposal is to bring together an international and interdisciplinary group of research teams who have different expertise areas to share the knowledge of different elements for building nano-biosensors. The development of future devices requires controlled assembly and placement of individual and/or multiple nano building blocks into the desired locations. By the accomplishment of this research proposal, the advantages of integration of nanomaterials into the structure of biose...
Flow-Regime-Based Inflow-Performance Relationships of Unconventional Fractured Reservoirs
Al-Rbeawi, Salam (Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), 2020-08-01)
The main objective of this paper is to develop a new approach for constructing the inflow-performance relationships (IPRs) of unconventional reservoirs. The proposed approach focuses on using transient- and pseudosteady-state-flow regimes in developing integrated analytical models for wellhead deliverability and wellbore-pressure decline considering the two wellbore conditions, constantsandface-flow rate and constant wellbore pressure. The motivation is to reduce the uncertainties in predicting current and ...
UCER, AS (ASME International; 1994-04-01)
One of the major activities of AGARD panels is to form working groups, which assemble experts who work on the particular subject for two or three years. As a result of the work, an advisory report is published, which compiles the state-of-the-art knowledge on the chosen specific topic. This paper explains the philosophy and procedures adopted during the formation of working groups of the Propulsion and Energetics Panel. Working groups concerning gas turbine technologies are presented. The selected working g...
Sustainable development of Turkey: Deployment of geothermal resources for carbon capture, utilization, and storage
Kirli, Mustafa Safa; Fahrioglu, Murat (Informa UK Limited, 2019-07-18)
As a developing country, Turkey's sustainable development objectives converge on robust and sustainable economic development. The increase in its energy and electricity demand is attributed to the growth of population, urbanization, and industrialization parallel to economic and social growth. Instead of fulfilling the obligation to protect the environment arising from international agreements and achieving desired sustainable development, the dependency on imported fossil fuel in electrical energy producti...
Application of vapex process for light crude oil
Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Akın, Serhat (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
The objective of this study is to investigate the applicability of Vapex process on Garzan crude oil. Experiments were performed with Hele-Shaw cell using two different solvents (propane and butane) at three different injection rates (20,40, and 80ml/min). For both Vapex solvents, oil production rates increased with injection rates for Garzan crude oil. Instantaneous asphaltene rate for Garzan oil showed fluctuated performance with propane solvent. Butane showed almost constant degree of asphaltene precipit...
