With the increase in optical applications in the terahertz frequency range there is a greater need for devices that work at these frequencies. One such device which has applications which range from spectroscopy to imaging is the band pass filter. The frequency selective nature of this component can be used for filtering noise during signal processing or can be even used for reducing radiation background levels for imaging purposes [1, 2]. The simplest form of this filter structure has been shown to be that of a free-standing metal sheet with a hole array. The frequency selective nature of the filter is realized by changing the structural parameters of the hole array with respect to the propagating input THz wave. Due to the sub-millimeter wave nature of the radiation the patterns are easier to fabricate for low frequency terahertz radiation applications (<1THz). Here, by using a high power Yb:doped pulsed nanosecond fiber laser system with exceptional beam quality, aluminum metal surfaces were machined with high precision leading to a high quality band pass filter that was shown to work in the terahertz frequency range [3]. We modeled the THz transmission through the the structure that was produced using FDTD simulation tools and also characterized them using the existing home-built time-domain terahertz spectrometers in our laboratories. Results of FDTD simulations are found to be consistent with transmission coefficient which is obtained from the experiment. In order to understand the efficiency of the composite structure which can be described as a frequency selective surface, the electrical permittivity (ε) and magnetic permeability (μ) is extracted from the transmission and reflection simulations [4]. The significance of these values is discussed with respect to the width and transmission observed for the fabricated and measured filter.

Optimization, Fabrication, and Characterization of Dual-Band InGaAs nBn Photodetectors
Şahin, Alper; Kocaman, Serdar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-8-31)
Shortwave and extended shortwave infrared regions are attracting significant attention since many applications utilize infrared wavelengths between 1-3 μm. Gas sensing, spectroscopy, food safety, astronomy, imaging, and optical communication are among the applications that utilize SWIR/eSWIR detectors. Typically Low radiation levels at SWIR/eSWIR bands require SWIR/eSWIR photodetectors to have outstanding performance, including high quantum efficiency and very low dark current. Photodetectors built with InG...
Comparison of the intercarrier interference cancellation methods in OFDM systems
Etiler, Burkay; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In OFDM systems carrier frequency offset is observed due to Doppler shift and transmitter-receiver frequency mismatches. This offset induces ICI (Intercarrier Interference). In this thesis, repeated data methods and pilot-aided carrier frequency offset(CFO) estimation methods and windowing techniques are used to mitigate the frequency offset problem and a performance comparison is made between these ICI cancellation techniques. Repeated data methods use only half of the bandwidth for information transmissio...

Pamuk, Gökhan; Yıldırım, Nevzat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
n this thesis, RF sections of a multi tier instantaneous frequency measurement (IFM) receiver which can operate in 2 – 18 GHz frequency band is designed, simulated and partially realized. The designed structure uses one coarse tier, three medium tiers and one fine tier for frequency discrimination. A novel reflective phase shifting technique is developed which enables the design of very wideband phase shifters using stepped cascaded transmission lines. Compared to the classical phase shifters using coupled ...
Investigation of gmpls applications in optical systems
Göken, Burcu; Ergül, Rüyal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In this study, possible applications of label switching in large area, fully optical networks are investigated. The objective was to design a label assignment method by using Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) concept to get an efficient optical network operation. In order to fulfill this objective, two new approaches were proposed: a label assignment method and a concatenated label structure. Label assignment method was designed to provide an efficient utilization of resources. Concatenated...
Effects and characterisations of pulse electrodeposition parameters of silver in terms of scattering parameter and surface roughness for waveguides operating at high frequencies
Başaran, Caner; Karakaya, İshak (2021-01-01)
The signal quality of antennas and waveguides in the transmission of electromagnetic waves are very much dependent on the surface finish of these devices. Effects of pulse parameters on the surface properties of silver coatings of the copper substrates have been analysed in terms of surface roughness and S-parameter (scattering parameter). The duty cycle, frequency and average current density were used as three pulse parameters. Three levels were selected for each parameter in the experimental design. The s...
