In industry, there is a need for remote sensing and autonomous method for the identification of the ferromagnetic materials used. The system is desired to have the characteristics of improved accuracy and low power consumption. It must also autonomous and fast enough for the decision. In this work, the details of inaccurate and low power remote sensing mechanism and autonomous identification system are given. The remote sensing mechanism utilizes KMZ51 anisotropic magneto-resistive sensor with high sensitivity and low power consumption. The images and most appropriate mathematical curves and formulas for the magnetic anomalies created by the magnetic materials are obtained by 2-D motion of the sensor over the material. The contribution of the paper is the use of the images obtained by the measurement of the perpendicular component of the Earth magnetic field that is a new method for the purpose of identification of an unknown magnetic material. The identification system is based on two kinds of neural network structures. The MultiLayer Perceptron (MLP) and the Radial Basis Function (RBF) network types are used for training of the neural networks. In this work, 23 different materials such as SAE/AISI 1030, 1035, 1040, 1060, 4140 and 8260 are identified. Besides the ferromagnetic materials, three objects are also successfully identified. Two of them are anti-personal and anti-tank mines and one is an empty can box. It is shown that the identification system can also be used as a buried mine identification system. The neural networks are trained with images which are originally obtained by the remote sensing system and the system is operated by images with added Gaussian white noises.

Design and implementation of magnetic field sensors for biomedical applications /
İnan, Ulaş Can; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
In this work, firstly the magnetic sensor types and their feasibility for biomedical applications are investigated. Then the air-cored induction coil sensor is chosen due to its advantages. Afterwards the usage of induction coils combined with amplifiers and connection types are studied. The biomedical applications requiring the use of magnetic field sensors are introduced. One of them, Lorentz Field Electrical Impedance Tomography (LFEIT) is explained in detail and experimental work is done for this applic...
Implementation of an Enhanced Target Localization and Identification Algorithm on a Magnetic WSN
Baghaee, Sajjad; GÜRBÜZ, SEVGİ ZÜBEYDE; Uysal, Elif (2015-10-01)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are ubiquitous in a wide range of applications requiring the monitoring of physical and environmental variables, such as target localization and identification. One of these applications is the sensing of ferromagnetic objects. In typical applications, the area to be monitored is typically large compared to the sensing radius of each magnetic sensor. On the other hand, the RF communication radii of WSN nodes are invariably larger than the sensing radii. This makes it economic...
Powder metal development for electrical motor applications
Bayramli, E; Golgelioglu, O; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent (2005-04-10)
In this paper, first the development process of a soft magnetic composite material for use in motor applications is described. Various mixtures are prepared to identify an optimum mix. It is found that highest packing is achieved for a mixing ratio of 45 % of 170 mesh particle size with 55 % 325 mesh particle size. The coating of the particles is obtained by using the "wetting method". The mechanical properties of the samples; such as stress versus strain, Strain% versus composition%, etc. are given, also s...
Production of graphene oxide and polymer based nanocomposite microsieves via breath figure method
Kıratlı, Ayşe Elif; Bat, Erhan; Çulfaz Emecen, Pınar Zeynep; Department of Chemical Engineering (2017)
Porous polymer films are used in various different fields such as electronics, sensors, biomedical, catalysis, and separation. Breath figure (BF) is a method of obtaining porous polymers via a self-assembly process based on water condensation. In this process condensed water droplets can be regularly arranged on surface depending on process conditions. They continue to grow or sink until all solvent is evaporated. After complete evaporation, honeycomb shaped porous polymeric films are obtained. Amphiphilic ...
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...
