Vanadium oxide plays a crucial role as the temperature-sensitive layer of microbolometers. This layer should possess a high temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) along with a desirable resistivity suitable for readout electronics. Mixed phase vanadium oxide thin films (VxOy) consist of different ratios of pure phases, which affect the resultant resistivity and TCR. It is thus important to be able to control individual phase concentrations to obtain the desired resistivity and TCR. In this study, we show that W-doping does not only introduce a new W-phase but also supports the formation of new V-phases in addition to the change in relative ratios of the original phases. The new V-phase, V2O5, dominates the overall electrical properties. Here, we first present the formation of new phases with W-doping and the structural and electrical characterization with classical tools, and then we show that Terahertz Time-Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS) is a strong nondestructive characterization technique that can monitor these effects of doping especially on the electrical behavior of VxOy films. Exploration of the control of this behavior is essential for the fabrication of a high TCR film with a desirable resistivity.


Analysis of velocity profiles in concentrated solid-liquid mixtures using ultrasound doppler velocimetry

Stirred tanks are widely used for a variety of processes in industry such as solid dispersion, crystallization and dissolution processes. Several parameters are used to optimize these stirred tank processes such as impeller type, tank geometry and impeller speed. The flow field in the stirred tank is complex and varies depending on these parameters. In these processes diffusion and chemical reaction rate depend on the flow field and velocity fluctuations; therefore, information about the flow field is valua...
Coating of iron oxide pellets for direct reduction
Basdag, A; Arol, Ali İhsan (2002-06-01)
Depending upon their chemical composition and, to a lesser extent, on their physical properties, iron oxide pellets exhibit varying degrees of sticking tendency during direct reduction at elevated temperatures. For an efficient shaft furnace operation in direct reduction (DR), it is imperative to prevent pellets from sticking to each other and, hence, forming clusters. Coating of pellets with a suitable inorganic material has increasingly been gaining recognition amongst the pellet producers and DR plant op...
Estimation of Turkish ict sectors and their relationships to productivity growth by input-output (i/o) analysis
Alyaz, Serhat; Şen, Tayyar Durmuş; Department of Industrial Engineering (2003)
The aim of this thesis is to investigate the effects of Mn content and alloying additions such as Cr and Mo, and various heat treatment procedures on both microstructure and mechanical properties of austenitic manganese (Hadfield) steels. For this purpose, steels with two different Mn content were considered (12-14 Mn, 16-18 Mn). First, five different heat treatment procedures were applied to the as-cast 12-14 Mn specimens to decide the procedure resulting the optimum tensile properties. Then, the specimens...
Investigating the effect of deformation and annealing texture on magnetic anisotropy in low-C steel sheets by magnetic Barkhausen noise method
Akçaoğlu, Fehmi Ümit; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2013)
Deformation and annealing texture in the cold rolled low carbon steels is important for sheet metal forming operations and service performance. The aim of this study is to non-destructively investigate the effect of texture on magnetic anisotropy. Various samples having different textures and residual stress states, due to different % reduction in thickness, annealing and stress relieving treatment, were prepared. Texture maps were obtained by Magnetic Barkhausen noise measurements performed with 100 steps ...
Catalytic effects of metallic additives on the combustion properties of crude oils by thermal analysis techniques
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2001-08-20)
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) was applied to crude oil combustion in the presence and absence of metal chlorides. It was observed that in the presence of smaller ratios of metallic additives, the surface reactions were predominant and the catalyst did not affect the reactions much. Three reaction regions were identified as low temperature oxidation (LTO), middle temperature oxidation (MTO) and high temperature oxidation (HTO). Kinetic parameters of the reaction regions were determined with two dif...
