Copper-based thiospinel quantum dots as potential candidates for nonlinear optical applications

Sürücü, Gökhan
Development of new materials such as CuNiCoS4,CuCo5S8, CuCo2S4are some important candidates which have potential nonlinear optical applications in photonics such as multiphoton spectroscopy/microscopy, laser technology etc. In this study, ternary and quaternary structured group members CuNiCoS4,CuCo5S8, CuCo2S4quantum dots (QDs) were synthesized experimentally using hot-injection method and investigated theoretically. The theoretical investigations based on Density Functional Theory (DFT) were revealed the electronic and lattice dynamical properties of these materials. The electronic band gaps obtained with DFT calculations were consistent with the band gaps that were obtained from the optical measurements. Nonlinear optical properties of CuNiCoS4,CuCo5S8and CuCo2S4in same molarities were examined using femtosecond z-scan method using the laser beam at 800nm wavelength with different laser intensities. Two photon absorption coefficients and nonlinear refractive indexes were calculated about 10-11cm/W and 10-16cm2/W, respectively. Ti-Sapphire femtosecond laser z-scan was also employed to determine the third order nonlinear optical susceptibilities(χ(3))of each sample and as a result;χ(3)of QDs was found about 10-10esu.

Highly Stable Multicrown Heterostructures of Type-II Nanoplatelets for Ultralow Threshold Optical Gain
Dede, Didem; Taghipour, Nima; Quliyeva, Ulviyya; Sak, Mustafa; Keleştemur, Yusuf; Gungor, Kivanc; Demir, Hilmi Volkan (2019-03-01)
Solution-processed type-II quantum wells exhibit outstanding optical properties, which make them promising candidates for light-generating applications including lasers and LEDs. However, they may suffer from poor colloidal stability under ambient conditions and show strong tendency to assemble into face-to-face stacks. In this work, to resolve the colloidal stability and uncontrolled stacking issues, we proposed and synthesized CdSe/CdSe1-xTex/CdS core/multicrown hetero-nanoplatelets (NPLs), controlling th...

Loğoğlu, K. Berker; Temizel, Alptekin; Kalkan, Sinan; Department of Information Systems (2016)
Introduction of the affordable but relatively high resolution color and depth synchronized RGB-D sensors, along with the efforts on open-source point-cloud processing tools boosted research in both computer vision and robotics. One of the key areas which have drawn particular attention is object recognition since it is one of the crucial steps for various applications. In this thesis, two spatially enhanced local 3D descriptors are proposed for object recognition tasks: Histograms of Spatial Concentric Surf...
Dual and single color mid-wavelength infrared quantum well photodetectors
Kaldırım, Melih; Beşikci, Cengiz; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector (QWIP) technology is promising for the development of large format low cost single and dual/multi color infrared sensor arrays. Thanks to the mature III-V semiconductor technology, QWIP focal plane arrays (FPAs) provide high uniformity and excellent noise equivalent temperature difference (NETD) in both long wavelength infrared (LWIR 8-12 m) and mid wavelength infrared (MWIR 3-5 m) bands. This thesis work focuses on the development of large format single and dual color MW...
Wideband long wave infrared metamaterial absorbers based on silicon nitride
ÜSTÜN, Kadir; Sayan, Gönül (2016-11-28)
In this paper, we present silicon nitride metamaterial absorber designs that accomplish large bandwidth and high absorption in the long wave infrared (LWIR) region. These designs are based on the metal-insulator-metal topology, insulator (silicon nitride), and the top metal (aluminum) layers are optimized to obtain high absorptance values in large bandwidths, for three different silicon nitride based absorber structures. The absorption spectrum of the final design reaches absorptance values above 90% in the...
