Defect reduction of non-polar and semi-polar III-Nitrides with sidewall lateral epitaxial overgrowth (SLEO)

İmer, Muhsine Bilge
Speck , James
A method of reducing threading dislocation densities in non-polar such as a-{11-20} plane and m-{1-100} plane or semi-polar such as {10-1n} plane III-Nitrides by employing lateral epitaxial overgrowth from sidewalls of etched template material through a patterned mask. The method includes depositing a patterned mask on a template material such as a non-polar or semi polar GaN template, etching the template material down to various depths through openings in the mask, and growing non-polar or semi-polar III-Nitride by coalescing laterally from the tops of the sidewalls before the vertically growing material from the trench bottoms reaches the tops of the sidewalls. The coalesced features grow through the openings of the mask, and grow laterally over the dielectric mask until a fully coalesced continuous film is achieved.


Rare cell enrichment from blood by using dielectrophoresis
Özkayar, Gürhan; Külah, Haluk; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2015)
Dielectrophoresis (DEP) is a technique used for separating particles with different sizes and/or dielectric properties. Fabrication of microelectrodes, thanks to MEMS technology, allows DEP to be applied in biomedical applications such as manipulation, separation, and enrichment of targeted cells from untargeted ones without any labeling. Especially, rare cell detection from blood occupies an important place in diagnostics of fatal diseases such as cancer. Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) that are shed into c...
Numerical investigation of flow control over an airfoil with synthetic jets and its optimization
Akçayöz, Eray; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2008)
In this work, an active flow control method is studied numerically by using a synthetic jet over a NACA 0015 airfoil. Unsteady, turbulent flows over the NACA 0015 airfoil are computed using a Navier-Stokes solver. The Spalart-Allmaras turbulence model is employed in all computations. Unsteady flow solutions are computed in parallel using Parallel Virtual Machine library routines in a computer cluster. The synthetic jet is implemented to the flow solver as a boundary condition. Response Surface Methodology i...
Thermal fracture analysis of orthotropic functionally graded materials using an equivalent domain integral approach
Dağ, Serkan (2006-12-01)
A new computational method based on the equivalent domain integral (EDI) is developed for mode I fracture analysis of orthotropic functionally graded materials (FGMs) subjected to thermal stresses. By using the constitutive relations of plane orthotropic thermoelasticity, generalized definition of the J-integral is converted to an equivalent domain integral to calculate the thermal stress intensity factor. In the formulation of the EDI approach, all the required thermomechanical properties are assumed to ha...
Optimization of a Convex Rail Design for Electromagnetic Launchers
Polat, Hakan; Tosun, Nail; Ceylan, Doga; Keysan, Ozan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-06-01)
A rail geometry with a convex cross section instead of a rectangular one provides a higher contact area, uniform current density, and less transition on the contact surface, and it increases the performance in electromagnetic launchers. In addition, the design of convex rails should be considered together with armature structure, the distance between rails, rail length, and parasitic masses that all have an influence on the overall efficiency and armature/rail transition. A novel complete rail and launch pa...
Failure analysis of tapered composite structures under tensile loading
Çelik, Ozan; Parnas, Kemal Levend; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
A three dimensional finite element modeling approach is used to evaluate the effects of preliminary design variables on the performance of tapered composite laminates under tensile loading. Hashin failure criteria combined with a progressive failure algorithm is used for in-plane failure mechanisms and cohesive zone method is used for out-of-plane failures. The modeling approach is validated by a comparison with experimental results from literature. The validated model is used to examine various design vari...
