Production and characterization of carbon-silicon nanocomposite anode materials for secondary lithium batteries
Miser, Burcu; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Parlak, Mehmet; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2017)
Amongst other anode materials, silicon has the highest capacity (for Li22Si5: 4200 mAh.g-1), whereas; the commonly used graphite has only a capacity of 320 mAh.g-1. Although this property of silicon makes it a worthwhile subject, there are technical issues which makes it difficult for commercial use. In this study, the aim is to investigate methods of producing silicon anode materials from a readily available powder via top down nano-particle forming methods for next generation lithium ion batteries which h...

Yurtseven, Özüm Öyküm; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Nalbant Esentürk, Emren; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2013)
Rechargeable silver-zinc batteries have aroused interest and find various area of usage depending on their notably technical advantages over other battery systems including their high specific energy and high recharge efficiency. In this battery chemistry, silver oxide and metallic zinc are used as the positive and negative active materials respectively. Chemically stabilized particles with large surface areas are needed to reach high discharge rates for battery applications. The use of nanoparticles as ele...
Production and characterization of boron nitride nanotubes
Özmen, Didem; Sezgi, Naime Aslı; Department of Chemical Engineering (2008)
The further developments in nanotechnology in last few years provide usage of nanoscale particles for many applications in various areas such as electronics, pharmaceutical, and biomedical due to their strengthened mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. Boron nitride nanotubes are a good example of nanoparticles. In this study, boron nitride nanotubes were successfully synthesized from the reaction of ammonia gas with mixture of boron and iron oxide. Physical and structural properties of the synthes...
Production and characterization of multilayered one dimensional plasmonic nanowires
Aygün, Ezgi; Bek, Alpan; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2017)
In this study, the main objective is to obtain enhanced optical properties from low dimensional nanostructures via tailoring their plasmonic properties. As the low dimensional multilayered plasmonic structures bear hybrid plasmon modes due to plasmon mixing, some of these modes are found to be subject to very low attenuation, resulting in long range and long lifetime plasmons. Such nanostructures have the potential to be utilized as efficient light management interfaces in thin film photovoltaic devices or ...
Production and characterization of polypropylene/organoclay nanocomposites
Yayla, Saniye; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
Polypropylene, PP, based nanocomposites were produced via melt blending method by using twin-screw extrusion in this study. The effects of organoclay type, compatibilizer type, and mixing order of components on the morphology, thermal, mechanical and flow properties of ternary nanocomposites were investigated. Terpolymer of ethylene/butyl acrylate/maleic anhydride, ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate, and copolymer of ethylene/glycidyl methacrylate elastomers were used as compatibilizer, whereas ...
