Investigation of the magnetic properties of BSCCO superconductors with scanning Hall probe microscope
(Bilkent University, 2002)
A low temperature scanning Hall probe microscope (LT-SHPM) with low noise GaAs/AlGaAs 2DEG Hall probes is used to investigate the magnetic properties of a Ag-sheathed BSCCO-2223 tape and a single crystal BSCCO-2212 ...
Electrostatic correlations in inhomogeneous electrolytes
(Bilkent University, 2018-08)
The field-theoretic approach is used to obtain the self-consistent equations for inhomogeneuos symmetric electrolytes. The perturbative Green's function method is used to solve these self-consistent equations for an ...
Large-scale semi-empirical pseudopotential electronic structure of self-assembled ingaas quantum dots
(Bilkent University, 2018-09)
The so-called second quantum revolution emerged at the beginning of the second millennium, opening up a path to realization of spin-qubit-based quantum computing by means of controlling and protecting quantum coherent ...
Frictional properties of quasi-two-dimensional materials from the Prandtl-Tomlinson model
(Bilkent University, 2016-10)
Tribology, the study of friction, is both an old theoretical problem in physics and an area of great practical importance. The invention of experimental instruments such as Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) has lead to the ...
33 Femtosecond Yb-doped optical frequency comb for frequency metrology applications
(Bilkent University, 2013)
Optical frequency combs have enabled many applications (high precision spectroscopy, table-top optical frequency metrology, optical atomic clocks, etc.), received considerable attention and a Nobel Prize. In this thesis, ...
Persistent currents in carbon nanotubes
(Bilkent University, 2003)
Carbon nanotubes are one of the most important findings of physics in the recent years. They are of great interest because of their various electrical, and mechanical features. All the properties of the nanotubes are ...
Mechanical and electronic properties of metal chain nanowires
(Bilkent University, 2003)
The fabrication of stable gold monoatomic chains suspended between two gold electrodes is one of the milestones in nanoscience and technology, since miniaturization of the electronic components is one of the great ...
Atomic, electronic, and transport properties of quantum point contacts on graphite surface
(Bilkent University, 1997)
Photocatalytic nanocomposites for increased optical activity
(Bilkent University, 2008)
To combat environmental pollution, photocatalytic decomposition provides degradation of organic and inorganic contaminants near the surface of the photocatalyst nanoparticles by converting optical energy of the absorbed ...
Strongly interacting one-dimensional Bose condensates
(Bilkent University, 2000)
Recent observation of Bose-Einstein condensation in dilute alkali gzises led to a great interest in this area both experimentally and theoretically. The most important characteristics of a Bose-Einstein condensate is ...
