Projects

These are the ongoing or finished studies from KAHVELab

 

BSM Searches with ATLAS Detector at CERN

We are searching Beyond the Standard Model particles predicted by E6 GUT model using the ATLAS data. We have developed our own analysis framework called dbxA2. We are analyzing data and Monte Carlo events usually on our local clusters, degirmen1 and degirmen2.

 

Electron Gun

We have built a number of thermal electron sources using W and W/Th wires. We are trying to build stable high current electron sources to be used by other projects in the lab.

 

Electron Beam Welding

Accelerated and focused electrons can be used to weld two different materials into a single continuous piece. EBW allows control of the welding depth and radius. Also it is possible to weld two materials with different melting temperatures. This project is supported by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) under the grant 117F462.

 

RF Transmission Line and Circulator

Accelerators need high RF power. The high power has to be transmitted by a specially designed system of waveguides and surely needs to include a circulator: device that would not allow reflected power to harm the RF power supply. All components are locally designed and produced. The transmission line and the circulator operate at 800MHz. A test cavity is also being built. This project is supported by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) under the grant 116E221.

 

Delay Wire Chamber

The wire chambers are gaseous detectors which give of electronics signals when a charged particle passes by. This project was about building a 10×10 cm2 active area wire chamber to be used to track particle beams or cosmic rays. This project was supported by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) under the grant 114F467.
