Design and analysis of perfect metamaterial absorber in GHz and THz frequencies

Dincer, Furkan
Sabah, Cumali
The new perfect metamaterial absorber (MA) based on square resonator with gap configuration is numerically (for GHz and THz frequency regime) and experimentally (for GHz frequency regime) presented and investigated. The proposed MA has a simple configuration which introduces flexibility to adjust its metamaterial properties and easily rescale the structure for other frequency regimes. In addition, polarization and incident angle independencies of the proposed model are analyzed for the THz frequency regime. The suggested structure could achieve very high absorption at wide angles of polarization and incident angles for both transverse electric and transverse magnetic waves. At resonance frequencies, absorption results are realized around 99.99% at 5.48GHz and 99.92% at 0.865THz for their respective frequency regimes. Besides numerical results in GHz and THz frequencies, experimental results are also obtained for GHz frequency regime. The proposed MA and its variations enable myriad potential applications in areas such as defense systems, communication, stealth technologies, and so on.


Investigation of microwave metamaterial based on H-shaped resonator in a waveguide configuration and its sensor and absorber applications
Sabah, Cumali; Taygur, Mehmet Mert; ZORAL, EMİNE YEŞİM (2015-04-13)
A microwave metamaterial (MTM) based on H-shaped resonator in a waveguide configuration is introduced and investigated both numerically and experimentally for X-band frequencies. The proposed model is designed and fabricated on both sides of the substrate and exhibits strong magnetic resonance at around 10.5GHz. Additionally, it has very simple design which improves and simplifies the fabrication process. Besides, only one single slab is used in the simulation and experiment which provides a reduction in th...

Pamuk, Gökhan; Yıldırım, Nevzat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
n this thesis, RF sections of a multi tier instantaneous frequency measurement (IFM) receiver which can operate in 2 – 18 GHz frequency band is designed, simulated and partially realized. The designed structure uses one coarse tier, three medium tiers and one fine tier for frequency discrimination. A novel reflective phase shifting technique is developed which enables the design of very wideband phase shifters using stepped cascaded transmission lines. Compared to the classical phase shifters using coupled ...
Design and implementation of variable frequency sine wave output buck-boost inverter
Şener, Yunus; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2016)
Conventional inverters have pulse-width-modulated output with a fundamental component at the desired frequency and magnitude. These converters are usually buck type and therefore the DC link voltage limits the maximum 3-phase output voltage magnitude. As a consequence, in motor drive applications field weakening is essential after a certain frequency of operation, as it becomes impossible to preserve the rated flux level. In renewable energy applications similar problems arise. When the DC link voltage fall...

Alparslan, Semih; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
This thesis includes the design, simulation, production and measurement of a differential fed magneto-electric dipole antenna with cavity operating at ultrawideband (3.3 GHz – 10 GHz). This antenna consists of a differential feeding structure, an electric dipole, a magnetic dipole and a cavity. The ultra-wideband operation is achieved through the use of differential feeding structure and cavity. A step-by-step procedure is followed during the design process of the differential fed magneto-electric dipole an...

Bölücek, Muhsin Alperen; Yıldırım, Nevzat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, a low phase noise local oscillator operating at 2210 MHz is designed and implemented to be used in X-Band transmitter of a LEO satellite. Designed local oscillator is a PLL (Phase Locked Loop) based frequency synthesizer which is implemented using discrete commercial components including ultra low noise voltage controlled oscillator and high resolution, low noise fractional-N synthesizer. Operational settings of the synthesizer are done using three wire serial interface of a microcontroller....
