Improvement of Laser-Crystallized Silicon Film Quality via Intermediate Dielectric Layers on a Glass Substrate
Cinar, Kamil; Karaman, Mehmet; Bek, Alpan (2018-05-01)
The laser crystallization (LC) of amorphous silicon thin films into polycrystalline silicon (pc-Si) thin films on glass substrates is an active field of research in the fabrication of Si-based thin film transistors and thin film solar cells. Efforts have been, in particular, focused on the improvement of LC technique. Adhesion promoters of the crystallized Si thin films at the glass interface play a crucial role in the stability and device performance of fabricated structures. The crystalline Si thin films ...
Improvement of punching strength of flat plates by using carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) dowels
Erdoğan, Hakan; Özcebe, Güney; Binici, Barış; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
Due to their practical application, flat-plates have been commonly used slab type in constructions in recent years. According to the investigations that were performed since the beginning of the 20th century, the vicinity of the slab-column connection is found to be susceptible to punching failure that causes serious unrepairable damage leading to the collapse of the structures. The objective of this study is to enhance the punching shear strength of slab-column connections in existing deficient flat plate ...
Improvement of multiband absorption with different technics (graphene, ito, and hole) for metamaterial absorber at optical frequencies
Mulla, Batuhan; Sabah, Cumali (2018-10-01)
Three absorption improvement techniques are numerically applied to a multiband metamaterial absorber design for solar energy harvesting. These techniques are the following: the reshaping of the back metallic plate, the integrating of graphene sheets, and the utilizing of indium tin oxide (ITO), in the design. Based on numerical simulation results, each of these methods has the capacity to enhance total absorption rates. In addition to the enhancement in the total absorption rates, new absorption peaks are a...
Improvement of the electric field distribution in the medium voltage gas insulated inductive voltage transformers
Var, Melih; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
IVoltage transformers are commonly used in medium voltage systems for both protection and measurement purposes. These transformers are designed to satisfy the mandatory IEC requirements at the lowest possible cost. The average life expectancy of such transformer is about 20 years, reliability and robustness are of the utmost importance. The main cause of failure during rated operation is the deterioration of the solid insulation by partial discharges. Partial discharges, unless there is a manufacturing erro...
Improvement of impact resistance of aluminum and zinc based die cast parts by means of tool steel inserts
Kamberoğlu, Murat; Kalkanlı, Ali; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2011)
High Pressure Die Casting (HPDC) is low-cost technique for the mass production of complex, non-ferrous parts. Despite its benefits such as dimensional accuracy, surface quality and high production rate; some mechanical drawbacks limit use of HPDC in production of critical parts especially under dynamical loads. This study aims to improve impact resistance and surface hardness of die cast parts by means of tool steel inserts. These inserts act as a barrier between the impactor and die casting alloy, in order...
