The evanescent wave enhancement of left-handed (LH) metamaterials (MTMs) have always been providing a great opportunity to establish useful refraction systems, which could be optimally utilized to a vast amount of engineering applications on the front burner. We proposed a specific MTM structure to realize and control the unusual properties of MTMs, which are aimed to be useful in the development process of conventional techniques governing certain applications. The simulation results are used to verify the credibility of the analysis, design, and theoretical construction methods. Besides, the study also includes a specific bending investigation for non-unity negative refractive index situation where the energy concentration, presented by a LH slab, begins to torn apart as a result of non-unity negative refractive index. The distance of the focus depends on how thick the slab is, the distance of the source, and two main compensator terms containing angle functions, which are disturbed in the case of non-unity negative refraction, are tried to be rehabilitated numerically/mathematically.

Gülden, Mehmet Ali; Akın, Tayfun; Eminoğlu, Selim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
The thesis presents a monolithically integrated low-­‐cost uncooled infrared imaging sensor using a MEMS process and a modified standard CMOS process. The designed sensor has an image format of 160×120 with a pixel pitch of 40 μm. The sensor is implemented with microbolometers that sense the infrared radiation in the 8-­‐12 μm spectral band, where the sensing elements in each pixel are formed with CMOS diodes to sense the temperature variation in the pixel by monitoring the change in the forward bias voltag...
Gold-assembled silica-coated cobalt nanoparticles as efficient magnetic separation units and surface-enhanced Raman scattering substrate
Yıldırım, Lütfiye Sezen; Volkan, Mürvet (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2019-01-01)
Magnetic and optical bifunctional nanoparticles that combine easy separation, preconcentration, and efficient SERS capabilities have been fabricated with high sensitivity and reproducibility through a low-cost method. These gold nanoparticles attached on magnetic silica-coated cobalt nanospheres (Co@SiO2/AuNPs) display the advantage of strong resonance absorption due to gaps at nanoscale between neighboring metal nanoparticles bringing large field enhancements, known as "hot spots". The prepared particles c...

Expanded graphite (EG) - polypyrrole (PPy) hybrid nanocomposites are used for the fabrication of paper-based highly flexible supercapacitor devices. Brush-painted EG electrodes are utilized as electrodes for the electrodeposition of PPy, resulting in the formation of nanocomposite electrodes with the desired material loading. Fabricated paper-based electrodes are free from heavy current collectors, binders, and conductive additives. Within nanocomposite electrodes, expanded graphite layer on paper facilitat...
Development of high fill factor and high performance uncooled infrared detector pixels
Küçük, Şeniz Esra; Akın, Tayfun; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
This thesis presents the design, fabrication and characterization of high performance and high fill factor surface micromachined uncooled infrared resistive microbolometer detectors which can be used in large format focal plane arrays (FPAs). The detector pixels, which have a pixel pitch of 25 μm, are designed and fabricated as two-level structures using the enhanced sandwich type resistor while the active material is selected as Yttrium Barium Copper Oxide (YBCO). First level of the pixel structure is allo...
Silver nanowire networks on polydimethylsiloxane for organic and perovskite solar cell electrodes
Güner, Elif Özlem; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2019)
Transparent and conductive electrodes are widely used in optoelectronic devices. The most prominent and commercial transparent conductive electrode is indium tin oxide (ITO). However, there is an increasing demand to replace ITO with alternative materials due to inherent drawbacks of ITO such as its cost, brittleness and scarcity of indium. Silver nanowire (Ag NW) networks are among the best candidates to replace ITO with their excellent optoelectronic and mechanical properties. Ag NW networks have already ...
