Electromagnetic absorbance properties of a textile material coated using filtered arc-physical vapor deposition method

Dincer, F.
Sabah, C.
We explore the structure of a textile absorber in terms of its electromagnetic and absorption properties in the microwave region. Its absorption characteristics are similar to those reported for various metamaterial-based absorbers, exhibiting absorption as high as 98% at resonance. In addition, the angular behavior of the absorption properties of the sample reveal incident angle independency, which is the other added value of the study. Also, the suggested textile absorber has a simple configuration, which introduces flexibility to adjust its material properties and easily tune its structure to suit other frequencies. The proposed textile absorber and its variations have myriad potential applications in radar technology, long distance radio telecommunication, and so on. Although in its current state the proposed structure provides almost perfect absorption covering a wide range of microwave C-Band, the developing technology will soon allow manufacturing textiles that can manipulate lights, leading to the design of invisibility cloak and other science fiction devices besides finding important application areas in medical science.


Theory of impurity induced lattice distortions in the normal phase of charge density wave systems
Turgut, Sadi (1994-05-01)
A phenomenological Ginzburg-Laundau theory is applied to the normal phase of one-dimensional charge-density-wave systems with a finite concentration of impurities. It is found that the interaction between the impurities and the highly polarizable electron gas leads to a strong and oscillatory impurityimpurity interaction, which in turn leads to ordered impurity arrangements and to sizeable periodic lattice distortions. The effect is very strongly dependent on the charge of the impurities, their concentratio...
Optical characterization of silicon based hydrogenated amorphous thin films by un-visible and infrared measurements
Kılıç, İlker; Katırcıoğlu, Bayram; Department of Physics (2006)
Various carbon content hydrogenated amorphous silicon carbide (a-Si1ŁxCx:H) and hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) thin films have been deposited on various substrates by using plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD) technique. Transmission spectra of these films have been determined within UV-Visible region and the obtained data were analysed to find related physical constants such as; refractive indices, thicknesses, etc. Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrometry technique has been u...
Free forming of locally induction heated specimens
Okman, Oya; Tekkaya, A. Erman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
Hot forming is highly utilized in manufacturing of complex shapes. Relatively low flow stresses of materials at elevated temperatures provide ease of manufacturing. On the other side, the current trend is to replace hot forming with cold forming due to the superior mechanical properties and higher dimensional accuracy of the products and less energy consumption. However, cold forming requires high tooling costs and forming loads. In this study, a new process is proposed for production of complex shaped prod...
Investigation of structural and electronic properties of ZnCdTe ternary alloy nanostructures
Kurban, Mustafa; Erkoç, Şakir; Department of Physics (2016)
Nanostructures, including II-VI compound semiconductors, have attracted enormous attention in a wide range of applications of nanotechnology due to the unusual mechanical, electrical and thermal properties under varying size, geometry, temperature and pressure when compared to corresponding bulk materials. However, these properties are not directly measurable by experiments because of the methods or the availability of the experimental tools, so theoretical models and computations play an important role in ...
Photoluminescence properties of Si nanocrystals embedded in SiO2 matrix
Seyhan, Ayşe; Turan, Raşit; Department of Physics (2010)
This thesis examines the luminescence properties of nanoscale silicon (Si) by using spectroscopic techniques. Since the development of new optical devices requires understanding light emission mechanism optical spectroscopy has become more important tool in the analysis of these structures. In this thesis, Si nanocrystals embedded in SiO2 matrix will be studied. Photoluminescence (PL) and Time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy (TRPL) have been used to detect the light emission in UV-Vis-NIR range. Exp...
