Deformation and finite size effects in cooperative molecular motors
(Bilkent University, 2002-07)
Motor protein systems have been of considerable interest lately. In these studies muscle contraction is modeled as the sliding of two filaments made of protein particles over one another, that is the sliding of the ...
Physics and applications of coupled-cavity structures in photonic crystals
(Bilkent University, 2002)
We proposed and demonstrated a new type of propagation mechanism for the electromagnetic waves in photonic band gap materials. Photons propagate through coupled cavities due to interaction between the highly localized ...
