A new version of PETOOL (Parabolic Equation Toolbox) is introduced with various additional capabilities. PETOOL is an open-source and MATLAB-based software tool with a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI) for the analysis and visualization of electromagnetic wave propagation over variable terrain and through arbitrary atmosphere. Four novel features of the second version are as follows: (i) Several evaporation duct models have been developed. (ii) Real atmosphere data have been included in the form of "Binary Universal Form for Representation (BUFR)" data developed by "World Meteorological Organization (WMO)". (iii) Real terrain data have been incorporated into the toolbox in the form of "Digital Terrain Elevation Data (DTED)" developed by "National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA)". (iv) A special add-on has been developed to generate a 3D coverage map of propagation factor/loss on real terrain data. The toolbox can be used for research and/or educational purposes to analyze more realistic propagation scenarios in an easier and flexible manner.


turboTDDFT - A code for the simulation of molecular spectra using the Liouville-Lanczos approach to time-dependent density-functional perturbation theory
Malcıoğlu, Osman Barış; Rocca, Dario; Baroni, Stefano (Elsevier BV, 2011-08-01)
We introduce turboTDDFT, an implementation of the Liouville-Lanczos approach to linearized time-dependent density-functional theory, designed to simulate the optical spectra of molecular systems made of up to several hundred atoms. turboTDDFT is open-source software distributed under the terms of the GPL as a component of QUANTUM ESPRESSO. As with other components, turboTDDFT is optimized to run on a variety of different platforms, from laptops to massively parallel architectures, using native mathematical ...
Symplectic and multi-symplectic methods for coupled nonlinear Schrodinger equations with periodic solutions
Aydin, A.; Karasoezen, B. (Elsevier BV, 2007-10-01)
We consider for the integration of coupled nonlinear Schrodinger equations with periodic plane wave solutions a splitting method from the class of symplectic integrators and the multi-symplectic six-point scheme which is equivalent to the Preissman scheme. The numerical experiments show that both methods preserve very well the mass, energy and momentum in long-time evolution. The local errors in the energy are computed according to the discretizations in time and space for both methods. Due to its local nat...
Discretization error due to the identity operator in surface integral equations
Ergül, Özgür Salih (Elsevier BV, 2009-10-01)
We consider the accuracy of surface integral equations for the solution of scattering and radiation problems in electromagnetics. In numerical solutions, second-kind integral equations involving well-tested identity operators are preferable for efficiency, because they produce diagonally-dominant matrix equations that can be solved easily with iterative methods. However, the existence of the well-tested identity operators leads to inaccurate results, especially when the equations are discretized with low-or...
Theoretical investigation of charge accumulation layer on the Bi-induced InAs(111)-(2 x 2) surface
Ozkaya, S.; Usanmaz, D.; ÇAKMAK, MELEK; Alkan, B.; Ellialtıoğlu, Süleyman Şinasi (AIP Publishing, 2014-04-28)
Based on pseudopotential method and density functional theory, we have investigated the stability, atomic geometry, and detailed electronic structures for Bi adsorbates on the InAs(111)-(2 x 2) surface with three different sites: (i) T-4 (Bi trimer centered on T-4 site), (ii) H-3 (Bi trimer centered on H-3 site), and (iii) T-4-H-3 (which is formed by trimers with opposite orientations: one centered on a T-4 site and the other on a H-3). Our total energy calculations suggest that adsorption on the T-4-H-3 si...
Fully Integrated Ultra-Low Voltage Step-up Converter with Voltage Doubling LC-Tank for Energy Harvesting Applications
Jayaweera, H. M. P. C.; Pathirana, W. P. M. R.; Muhtaroglu, Ali (2015-12-04)
This paper reports the design, fabrication, and validation of a novel integrated interface circuit for ultra-low voltage step up converter in 0.18 mu m CMOS technology. The circuit does not use off-chip components. Fully integrated centre-tap differential inductors are introduced in the proposed LC oscillator design to achieve 38% area reduction compared to the use of four separate inductors. The efficiency of the system is hence enhanced through the elimination of clock buffer circuits traditionally utiliz...
