Dalgac, Sekip
Sabah, Cumali
In this study, a chiral metamaterial sensor applications are created by placing asymmetrically two meander line front and back side of the substrate layer. Characterization of the dielectric constant, thickness and loss tangent have been performed both in simulation and experimental methods. Different Arlon type materials used for showing the effects of dielectric constant on transmission coefficient. Obtained bandwidths for characterization are greater than the similar studies which verifyies increased sensitivity. This study also differs from similar studies by presenting permeability and loss tangent effects on transmission coefficient as well as having wider bandwidth that increase sensitivity due to its special chiral design. Set of experimental study performed to verify simulated ones for change in thickness, dielectric constant and loss tangent and compatible results with simulated ones obtained. According to simulation and experimental study results, proposed structurecan be used myriad microwave sensing applications effectively due to high sensitivity property.


Characterization of GZO thin films fabricated by RF magnetron sputtering method and electrical properties of In/GZO/Si/Al diode
Surucu, O. Bayrakli (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-11-01)
The main focus of this work is the structural and optical characterization of Ga-doped ZnO (GZO) thin film and determination of the device behavior of In/GZO/Si/Al diode. GZO thin films were deposited by RF magnetron sputtering technique from single target. The structural and morphological properties of GZO film were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman scattering, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy analysis (EDS) measurements. Optical properties of the fil...
Design of metasurface polarization converter from linearly polarized signal to circularly polarized signal
In this study, we both numerically and experimentally present a metasurface (MS) polarization converter to transform linearly polarized signal into circularly polarized one. The unit cell consists of two rectangular metallic patches placed at the crossed corners of rectangularly arranged inclusions. The results of a full-wave Electromagnetic (EM) simulator are compared to those of free space measurement using two horn antenna at microwave frequency regime. For a linearly polarized antenna, the s-parameters ...
Investigation of electrical characteristics of Ag/ZnO/Si sandwich structure
Gullu, H. H.; Surucu, O. Bayrakli; Terlemezoğlu, Makbule; Yildiz, D. E.; Parlak, Mehmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-08-01)
In this study, temperature-dependent current-voltage (I-V), frequency-dependent capacitance-voltage (C-V) and conductance-voltage (G/omega-V) measurements are carried out for the electrical characterization of a zinc oxide (ZnO) thin film-based diode. The sandwich structure in the form of Ag/ZnO/Si/Al is investigated at temperatures between 220 and 360 K and in the frequency region of 1 kHz-1 MHz. ZnO thin film layer is deposited on a p-Si wafer substrate as a transparent conductive oxide layer by taking in...
Full-wave analysis of microstrip lines on a highly lossy substrate
Prakash, VVS; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Mittra, R (Wiley, 2003-06-05)
The finite-element method has been used for analyzing open microstrip line structures on highly lossy substrates. The geometry descritization has been carried out by using quadrilateral elements, and the spurious solutions art avoided by employing tangential vector formulation. The difficulties associated with finding the propagation constant of a highly lossy structure 13.1, solving a generalized eigenvalue problem are discussed. A methodology is presented,for a fast and efficient computation of the attenu...
Calculation of the soft-mode frequency for the alpha - beta transition in quartz
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Elsevier BV, 2016-01-01)
The alpha - beta structural transition occurs in quartz at T-c = 846 K. The frequency of the soft mode associated with the volume increase, decreases with increasing temperature as the transition temperature is approached.
