Hacettepe-Bilkent UNAM Health Sciences & Technologies Sancar Fellows and Seed Funds

Hacettepe-Bilkent UNAM Health Sciences & Technologies Sancar Fellows and Seed Funds

Hacettepe – Bilkent UNAM Health Sciences and Technologies Program (HST), initiated through the R&D Cooperation Framework signed with Hacettepe University, allows for Hacettepe and Bilkent PI’s to utilize research infrastructures available at Hacettepe University and UNAM for common use in a reciprocal way. Within this framework, we are excited to announce two new joint programs: [...]
Near-unity efficiency energy transfer from colloidal quantum wells of CdSe/CdS nanoplatelets to a monolayer of MoS2

Near-unity efficiency energy transfer from colloidal quantum wells of CdSe/CdS nanoplatelets to a monolayer of MoS2

Near-Unity efficiency energy transfer from colloidal quantum wells of CdSe/CdS nanoplatelets to a monolayer of MoS2 Utilization of the energy transfer between different molecules has proven to be highly promising candidate for semiconductor nanocrystal optoelectronics including highly efficient light generation and harvesting in colloidal systems. This can be performed via transferring of the excitation energy [...]
A new way to generate multi-watt-level, octave-spanning, spectrally flat supercontinua

A new way to generate multi-watt-level, octave-spanning, spectrally flat supercontinua

Spatiotemporal nonlinear dynamics in graded-index multimode fibers: a new way to generate multi-watt-level, octave-spanning, spectrally flat supercontinua A team of researchers led by Asst. Prof. Bülend Ortaç (UNAM) has published an important study in Nature Scientific Reports journal. In this study, Ortaç group proposed a novel method to achieve octave-spanning spectrally flat supercontinuum with world [...]
UNAM researchers show photocurrent generation in metallic layered nanomaterials

UNAM researchers show photocurrent generation in metallic layered nanomaterials

Photocurrent generation is a key process in optoelectronics. Typically semiconducting materials are used as the non-equilibrium charge carriers created by optical excitation can efficiently be separated to create electric current. However, this process doesn't occur in metallic materials besides a few exceptions as the number of intrinsic charge carriers are far greater than the photoexcited [...]
A Molecular Automaton for Cancer Therapy

A Molecular Automaton for Cancer Therapy

A team of Bilkent and Hacettepe University  researchers, led by Prof. Engin Umut Akkaya of the Department of Chemistry and the National Nanotechnology Research Center (UNAM), has published an article in the journal Nature Communications on a molecular demultiplexer that functions as a “terminator” automaton. But this tiny terminator is on our side: it kills [...]
International Women’s day Celebration with Aysel Sabuncu at Bilkent UNAM

International Women’s day Celebration with Aysel Sabuncu at Bilkent UNAM

On the occasion of International Women’s Day last week, the National Nanotechnology Research Center (UNAM) held a celebratory event, during which the integral place of women in the Bilkent community and their contributions to the university and to society were highlighted. The program, which took place on March 8, began with a mini concert by [...]
