We investigate dynamic formation of nanosheet charge accumulations by heterointerface engineering in double injection layer (DIL) based organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). Our experimental results show that the device performance is considerably improved for the DIL device as the result of heterointerface injection layer (HIIL) formation, in comparison to reference devices, namely, the current density is doubled and even quadrupled and the turn-on voltage is favorably halved, to 3.7 V, which is promising for simple small-molecule OLEDs. The simulation reveals the (i) formation of dynamic p-type doping (DPD) region which treats the quasi Fermi level at the organic/electrode interface, and (ii) formation of dynamic dipole layer (DDL) and the associated electric field at the organic/organic interface which accelerates the ejection of the carriers and their transference to the successive layer. HIIL formation proposes alternate scenarios for device design. For instance, no prerequisite for plasma treatment of transparent anode electrode, our freedom in varying the thicknesses of the organic layers between 10 nm and 60 nm for the first layer and between 6 nm and 24 nm for the second layer. The implications of the present work give insight into the dynamic phenomena in OLEDs and facilitates the development of their inexpensive fabrication for lighting applications.

We report on the fabrication and performance of vacuum-processed organic field effect transistors utilizing evaporated low-density polyethylene (LD-PE) as a dielectric layer. With C-60 as the organic semiconductor, we demonstrate low operating voltage transistors with field effect mobilities in excess of 4 cm(2)/Vs. Devices with pentacene showed a mobility of 0.16 cm(2)/Vs. Devices using tyrian Purple as semiconductor show low-voltage ambipolar operation with equal electron and hole mobilities of similar to...
Adsorption of RuSex (x=1-5) cluster on Se-doped graphene: First principle calculations
AKTÜRK, OLCAY ÜZENGİ; Tomak, Mehmet (2015-08-30)
We have investigated the adsorption of RuSex (x =1-5) cluster on Se-doped graphene. The change of the adsorption energy with the number of Se atoms and magnetization values are investigated. Electronic properties of adsorption of RuSex (x =1-5) cluster on Se-doped graphene are investigated. The highest adsorption energy belongs to RuSe adsorbate. The biggest magnetization value belongs to RuSe2 adsorbate. This adsorbate makes the substrate half metallic. This property is important in electronic device appli...
Shaft transducerless vector control of the interior permanent magnet motor with speed and position estimation using high frequency signal injection and flux observer methods
Göksu, Ömer; Hava, Ahmet Masum; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
In this thesis, shaft transducerless vector control of Interior Permanent Magnet (IPM) motor with speed and position estimation using saliency based high frequency signal injection and fundamental model based flux observer methods will be investigated. The magnetic saliency characteristic of a 2.2-kW IPM motor will be experimentally extracted by means of high frequency signal injection. High frequency signal injection method will be used to estimate the speed and position at zero and low speed based on the ...
Quantitative analysis of nonlinear dynamics of quantum light transmission in strongly coupled quantum dot-cavity systems
Tugen, Alperen; Kocaman, Serdar (Elsevier BV, 2019-04-01)
We compared transmission spectra of coupled high-Q cavity with quantum dot (QD) systems in the strong coupling regime with Input-Output Formalism (IOF) and Incoherent Pumping Mechanism (IPM) based on Lindblad master equation approach. The peak transmission of Dipole Induced Transparency (DIT) together with its full-width-half-maximum (FWHM) are enquired for detailed analysis. Both methods exhibit the same vacuum Rabi splitting in on-resonant case, in contrast, the peak of DIT is estimated smaller between 50...

Toraman, Gozdenur; Sert, Elif; Gulasik, Hasan; Toffolı, Danıele; Toffoli, Hande; Gürses, Ercan (2021-04-01)
The interface of polyetheretherketone (PEEK) with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene is investigated using density functional theory and molecular dynamics within the REAXFF-lg interatomic interaction framework. The dependence of PEEK adsorption energy on the polymer chain length, temperature, starting adsorption configuration of the fully stretched conformation, and on the nature of the substrate was investigated. Overall, the interface between graphene and the polymers yield larger adsorption energies t...
