Thin film (6,5) semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotube metamaterial absorber for photovoltaic applications
Obaidullah, Madina; Esat, Volkan; Sabah, Cumali (2017-12-01)
A wide-band (6,5) single-walled carbon nanotube metamaterial absorber design with near unity absorption in the visible and ultraviolet frequency regions for solar cell applications is proposed. The frequency response of the proposed design provides wide-band with a maximum of 99.2% absorption. The proposed design is also simulated with (5,4), (6,4), (7,5), (9,4), and (10,3) chiralities, and results are compared to show that the proposed design works best with (6,5) carbon nanotube (CNT) but also good for ot...

İlik, Bedirhan; Koyuncuoğlu, Aziz; Uluşan, Hasan; Chamanıan, Salar; Işık Akçakaya, Dilek; Şardan Sukas, Özlem; Külah, Haluk (2017-09-06)
This paper presents design and fabrication of a MEMS-based thin film piezoelectric transducer to be placed on an eardrum for fully-implantable cochlear implant (FICI) applications. Resonating at a specific frequency within the hearing band, the transducer senses eardrum vibration and generates the required voltage output for the stimulating circuitry. Moreover, high sensitivity of the sensor, 391.9 mV/Pa @900 Hz, decreases the required power for neural stimulation. The transducer provides highest voltage ou...

Ilık, Bedirhan; Koyuncuoglu, Aziz; Sardan-Sukas, Ozlem; Külah, Haluk (Elsevier BV, 2018-09-01)
This paper reports the development of a single cantilever thin film PLD-PZT transducer prototype. The device was experimentally characterized by attaching it on an acoustically vibrating membrane resembling the behavior of the eardrum. Acceleration characteristic of the sensor attached on the membrane was obtained by using a Laser Doppler Vibrometer (LDV) as the output voltage was measured by an oscilloscope. A voltage output of 114 mV was obtained, when the device was excited at 110 dB Sound Pressure Level...

Thin Wideband Infrared Metamaterial Absorber with Coplanar Metallic Patches of Different Sizes
Ustun, K.; Sayan, Gönül (2016-01-01)
Infrared absorber concept is a vibrant research topic because of the importance of real world applications such as infrared detectors, thermal coolers and energy harvesters. In this paper, we propose and numerically analyze thin metamaterial structures designed to operate in Long Wave Infrared Region, one of the regions that atmosphere shows transparent behavior. It is demonstrated that one of the proposed structures attains absorptance values higher than 80 percent in the wavelength region from 8.14 ium to...
