Phonon Mean Free Path in Few Layer Graphene, Hexagonal Boron Nitride, and Composite Bilayer h-BN/Graphene

Gholivand, Hamed
Donmezer, Nazli
In this study, ab-initio calculations were performed to obtain the phonon dispersions of seven different structures: single layer graphene, bilayer graphene, graphite, single layer h-BN, bilayer h-BN, bulk h-BN, and finally composite bilayer h-BN/graphene. Using these dispersions specific heat, group velocity, and single mode relaxation times of phonons were obtained to calculate their thermal conductivities, and mean free paths at room temperature. Calculated variables were used to understand the effects of additional layers to thermophysical properties, phonon mode contributions to thermal conductivity, and the limits for ballistic-diffusive heat transfer of all seven structures. Finally, based on the obtained data, thermal properties of the composite bilayer h-BN/graphene were investigated and compared to those of few layer graphene and h-BN structures.


FEM solution of MHD flow in an array of electromagnetically coupled rectangular ducts
Tezer-Sezgin, M.; Aydin, S. Han (Inderscience Publishers, 2020-01-01)
The magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of an electrically conducting fluid is studied in an array of identical parallel ducts stacked in the direction of external magnetic field and are separated by conducting walls of arbitrary thickness. Such arrangement of electromagnetically coupled ducts arises in fusion blanket applications in which a liquid metal is used both as coolant and tritium generation. The finite element method (FEM) with SUPG stabilisation is used for solving the set of coupled MHD equations. Nu...
Non-destructive recognition of dielectric coated conducting objects by using WD type time-frequency transformation and PCA-based fusion
Sayan, Gönül (Wiley, 2013-07-01)
This article demonstrates the applications of a non-destructive electromagnetic target recognition method, called Wigner distribution-principal component analysis (WD-PCA) method, to dielectric coated conducting spheres. These spheres are chosen to be highly similar having the same overall size but slightly different permittivity and thickness values in coating layers. Four different classifiers are simulated by using the WD-PCA method for varying sizes of object libraries under different noise conditions. ...
Circumferential Traveling Wave Slot Array on Cylindrical Substrate Integrated Waveguide (CSIW)
Bayraktar, Omer; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-07-01)
Traveling wave slot array on cylindrical substrate integrated waveguide (CSIW) is designed, fabricated and measured at K-band. CSIW is formed by wrapping the substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) around the cylinder in the circumferential direction. 16 element longitudinal slot array on the broad wall of single CSIW is designed by the Elliot's design procedure. The spacings between the slot elements are determined to reduce the half power beam width (HPBW) and to obtain good matching at 25 GHz. A 4 x 16 slot...
U-shaped frequency selective surfaces for single- and dual-band applications together with absorber and sensor configurations
Bakir, Mehmet; DELİHACIOĞLU, KEMAL; KARAASLAN, MUHARREM; Dincer, Furkan; Sabah, Cumali (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2016-02-19)
In this study, the frequency selective surface (FSS), absorbance and sensing applications of new unit cells comprised of single, double and quad U-shaped metallic elements are numerically and experimentally investigated. The numerical results are realised by using finite integration technique-based electromagnetic simulation software, CST Microwave Studio. Experimental results are obtained by means of Agilent N5234A PNA-L vector network analyser. The simulated and measured results of U-shaped FSSs are carri...

Li, Flora M.; Hsieh, Gen-Wen; Dalal, Sharvari; Newton, Marcus C.; Stott, James E.; Hiralal, Pritesh; Nathan, Arokia; Warburton, Paul A.; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Beecher, Paul; Flewitt, Andrew J.; Robinson, Ian; Amaratunga, Gehan; Milne, William I. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008-11-01)
This paper reports on the synthesis of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures and examines the performance of nanocomposite thin-film transistors (TFTs) fabricated using ZnO dispersed in both n- and p-type polymer host matrices. The ZnO nanostructures considered here comprise nanowires and tetrapods and were synthesized using vapor phase deposition techniques involving the carbothermal reduction of solid-phase zinc-containing compounds. Measurement results of nanocomposite TFTs based on dispersion of ZnO nanorods ...
