    • Alteration of self-assembled patterns by microorganisms in evaporating droplets 

      Andaç, Tuğba (Bilkent University, 2016-08)
      The science of self-organization comprises a diverse range of processes where a disordered system of components form ordered pattern or structure spontaneously without any external instruction [1]. Plentiful examples of ...
    • Braph : a toolbox developed for brain graph analysis of various imaging modalities 

      Kakaei, Ehsan (Bilkent University, 2017-03)
      Complex systems, like the human brain, are composed of a huge number of interacting elements showing complex patterns. Graph theory provides a mathematical toolbox for investigating the role of each element in these systems. ...
    • Dynamical effects of noise on nonlinear systems 

      Duman, Özer (Bilkent University, 2014)
      Randomness and nonlinear dynamics consitute the most essential part of many events in nature. Therefore, a better and comprehensive understanding of them is a crucial step in describing natural phenomena as well as the ...
    • Experimental study of critical casimir forces on microparticles in critical binary liquid mixtures 

      Tuna, Yazgan (Bilkent University, 2014)
      Long-ranged forces between mesoscopic objects emerge when a fluctuating field is confined. Analogously to the well known quantum-electro-dynamical (QED) Casimir forces, emerging between conducting objects due to the ...
    • Graph theory to study complex networks in the brain 

      Mijalkov, Mite (Bilkent University, 2018-05)
      The brain is a large-scale, intricate web of neurons, known as the connectome. By representing the brain as a network i.e. a set of nodes connected by edges, one can study its organization by using concepts from graph ...
    • Intracavity optical trapping with fiber laser 

      Kalantarifard, Fatemeh (Bilkent University, 2019-06)
      After Ashkin's seminal works, optical trapping has been a powerful technique for capturing and manipulating sub micro particles not only in physics research fields but also in biology and photonics. Standard optical ...
    • Manipulation and control of collective behavior in active matter systems 

      Pinçe, Erçağ (Bilkent University, 2016-11)
      Active matter systems consist of active constituents that transform energy into directed motion in a non-equilibrium setting. The interaction of active agents with each other and with their environment results in collective ...
    • Non-boltzmann stationary distributions and non-equilibrium relations in active baths 

      Argun, Aykut (Bilkent University, 2016-10)
      Most natural and engineered processes, such as biomolecular reactions, protein folding, and population dynamics, occur far from equilibrium and, therefore, can- not be treated within the framework of classical equilibrium ...
    • Sorting of chiral microswmmers 

      Mijalkov, Mite (Bilkent University, 2014)
      Microscopic swimmers, for example chemotactic bacteria and cells, are capable of directed motion by exerting a force on their environment. In some cases, including bacteria and spermatozoa swimming near boundaries, or ...
    • Study of anisotropic particles in active bath 

      Mehmood, Naveed (Bilkent University, 2015)
      Brownian (passive) particles undergo random motion due to thermal agitation in the surrounding medium. In recent years, a lot of attention has been devoted to study active Brownian particles, i.e., microscopic particles ...
