Development and assessment of volume resolving velocimetry for turbomachinery test facilities
(Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt DLR, 2017-12-21)
The present thesis assesses the applicability of volume resolving velocimetry for turbo machinery test facilities. Tomographic particle image velocimetry has been implemented in a transonic cascade wind tunnel. Assessment is based on 3D-3C measurements of the passage vortex in an axial compressor cascade at subsonic inflow (Ma1=0.6). Results show broad consistency with stereoscopic PIV with improved depth resolution. A novel Fast Multiplicative Algebraic Reconstruction Technique (FMART) enables signi cantly faster ...
Design and Numerical Simulation of Dielectric Photonic Crystal Devices and Investigation of an Optical Characterization Method
In this research work, dielectric photonic crystal (PhC) structures based on low refractive index slab waveguide are investigated. These two-dimensional slab waveguide PhC structures work on the principle of guided-mode resonance and find their application in optical filters operated in the near-infrared range. The design and numerical simulation of the presented PhCs are carried out using finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. The dielectric materials used in the presented structures are zirconium dioxide/niobium ...
Residual-Layer-Free 3D Nanoimprinting using Novel Hybrid Soft Templates
Hybrid 3D soft templates are designed and evaluated for residual layer free 3D imprinting in UV-Substrate Conformal Imprint Lithography (SCIL). 3D imprinting usually results in laterally varying residual layers, which cannot be removed by conventional etching processes in a satisfactory manner. The hybrid templates introduced in this thesis are hybrid in a way that their template protrusions are enclosed with a UV-blocking metal layer, by this means selective UV curing of the resist material is attainable. Hence, the ...
Development, Evaluation and Optimization of Fabrication Processes for Daylight Guiding Systems Based on Micromirror Arrays
In this work, fabrication processes for daylight guiding systems based on micromirror arrays are developed, evaluated and optimized.Two different approaches are used: At first, nanoimprint lithography is used to fabricate large area micromirrors by means of Substrate Conformal Imprint Lithography (SCIL).Secondly,a new lithography technique is developed using a novel bi-layered photomask to fabricate large area micromirror arrays. The experimental results showing a reproducible stable process, high yield, and is ...
Optical Sensor Array based Nanospectrometer: Fabrication of high resolution 3D NanoImprint master templates and bonding of Fabry-Pérot filter array onto photodetector array
In the field of optical spectroscopy, spectrometers are high resolution optical sensors that have emerged as a platform for a wide range of application fields. Commercially available spectrometers are bulky and expensive. Hence, this limits its integration into modern mobile and wearable devices. To overcome this limitation, miniaturization of spectrometers is an interesting target for a wide range of emerging applications. The most attractive concept of fabricating miniaturized spectrometers is the Fabry-Pérot filter ...
