    • Beaming and localization of electromagnetic waves in periodic structures 

      Çağlayan, Hümeyra (Bilkent University, 2010)
      We want to manipulate light for several applications: microscopy, data storage, leds, lasers, modulators, sensor and solarcells to make our life healthier, easier or more comfortable. However, especially in small scales ...
    • Coupled surface plasmon structures and applications 

      Gürel, Kemal (Bilkent University, 2009)
      Surface plasmons have attracted great interest during past decades due to their unique physical properties. In this thesis, we study grating-coupled surface plasmons for sensing and filtering applications. We first present ...
    • Microfluidics for plasmonic sensors 

      Ertaş, Yavuz Nuri (Bilkent University, 2009)
      In this thesis, we integrate microfluidics with grating-coupled surface plasmon configurations for sensing applications. First, in order to observe optimal excitations, we introduce procedures for modification of the ...
    • Plasmonic nanoantennas for enhanced light-matter interactions and graphene based tunable nanophotonic devices 

      Çakmakyapan, Semih (Bilkent University, 2015)
      Focusing, manipulating and beaming of electromagnetic waves are important for many applications such as antennas, optical isolators, biological sensor, chemical sensors, and solar cells. There is an extensive research ...
