    • Cellular internalization of therapeutic oligonucleotides by peptide amphiphile nanofibers and nanospheres 

      Mumcuoglu, D.; S. Ekiz, M.; Gunay, G.; Tekinay, T.; Tekinay, A. B.; Güler, Mustafa O. (American Chemical Society, 2016-04)
      Oligonucleotides are promising drug candidates due to the exceptionally high specificity they exhibit toward their target DNA and RNA sequences. However, their poor pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties, in ...
    • Femtosecond laser crystallization of amorphous Ge 

      Salihoglu, O.; Kürüm, U.; Yaglıoglu, G. H.; Elmali, A.; Aydınlı, Atilla (American Institute of Physics, 2011)
      Ultrafast crystallization of amorphous germanium (a-Ge) in ambient has been studied. Plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition grown a-Ge was irradiated with single femtosecond laser pulses of various durations with a range ...
    • Influence of gold-silica nanoparticles on the performance of small-molecule bulk heterojunction solar cells 

      Xu, X.; Kyaw, A. K. K.; Peng, B.; Xiong, Q.; Demir, Hilmi Volkan; Wang Y.; Wong, T. K. S.; Sun, X. W. (Elsevier BV * North-Holland, 2015)
      Light trapping by gold (Au)-silica nanospheres and nanorods embedded in the active layer of small-molecule (SM) organic solar cell has been systematically compared. Nanorod significantly outperforms nanosphere because of ...
    • Model-based spectral analysis of photon propagation through nanoparticle-labeled epithelial tissues 

      Cihan, Can; Arifler, D. (SPIE, 2011)
      Metal nanoparticles can function as optical contrast enhancers for reflectance-based diagnosis of epithelial precancer. We carry out Monte Carlo simulations to model photon propagation through normal tissues, unlabeled ...
    • Nanosphere concentrated photovoltaics with shape control 

      Esmaeilzad, N. S.; Demir, Ahmet Kemal; Hajivand, J.; Çiftpınar, H.; Turan, R.; Kurt, H.; Bek, A. (Wiley, 2020-12)
      Dielectric colloidal nanospheres (NSs) are promising candidates for light management in photonic devices such as solar cells (SCs). NS arrays can direct the broad incident solar radiation into a set of tighter foci, at ...
    • Self-assembled peptide nanostructure delivery sytems for oligonucleotide therapy 

      Mumcuoğlu, Zahide Didem (Bilkent University, 2014-06)
      Oligonucleotides are potent therapeutic agents in the treatment of cancer, metabolic, cardiovascular and various hereditary diseases. Despite their great potential, oligonucleotide-based drugs have failed in clinical and ...
    • Shape and deposition angle control of silver film-over-nanosphere SERS substrates 

      Esmaeilzad, Nasim Seyedpour; Demirtaş, Özge; Demir, Ahmet Kemal; Bek, Alpan (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2021-10-06)
      Thin metallic films on dielectric nanospheres are demonstrated to have a high potential for the fabrication of cost-effective SERS substrates. In addition to the morphological advantages that nanospheres offer for attaining ...
