    • Functional contour-following via haptic perception and reinforcement learning 

      Hellman, R. B.; Tekin, C.; Schaar, M. V.; Santos, V. J. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2018)
      Many tasks involve the fine manipulation of objects despite limited visual feedback. In such scenarios, tactile and proprioceptive feedback can be leveraged for task completion. We present an approach for real-time haptic ...
    • Highly polarized light emission by isotropic quantum dots integrated with magnetically aligned segmented nanowires 

      Uran, C.; Erdem, T.; Guzelturk, B.; Perkgöz, N. K.; Jun, S.; Jang, E.; Demir, H. V. (American Institute of Physics, 2014)
      In this work, we demonstrate a proof-of-concept system for generating highly polarized light from colloidal quantum dots (QDs) coupled with magnetically aligned segmented Au/Ni/Au nanowires (NWs). Optical characterizations ...
    • How to prevent trade based stock price manipulation 

      İlalan, Deniz (Bilkent University, 2001)
      Allen and Gale (1992) construct a model to show that stock price manipulation is possible. The time structure of their model allows manipulators to pretend “informed” traders, so that the local investors cannot distinguish ...
    • Investors’ reaction to litigation announcements by Capital Markets Board of Turkey 

      Özçiçek, Mahmut Mustafa (Bilkent University, 2019-09)
      I empirically investigate investors’ reaction to the litigations announcements published by Turkish Capital Markets Board (CMB). I use event study to analyze daily abnormal returns for significant market reactions. I compile ...
    • Manipulation via information in large elections 

      Sezer, İlhan (Bilkent University, 2006)
      This thesis studies manipulations of equilibria by candidates in two-alternative elections along with their effects on voter turnout, winner of the election and social welfare where voters have common values, and both ...
    • Speckle optical tweezers: micromanipulation with random light fields 

      Volpe, G.; Kurtz, L.; Callegari, A.; Volpe, G.; Gigan, S. (Optical Society of America, 2014-07-18)
      Current optical manipulation techniques rely on carefully engineered setups and samples. Although similar conditions are routinely met in research laboratories, it is still a challenge to manipulate microparticles when the ...
