Enes Battal, who is currently pursuing his master’s degree under the supervision of Asst. Prof. Ali Kemal Okyay in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, has been awarded a 2013 IEEE Electron Devices Society Master’s Student Fellowship. He is one of only three young researchers worldwide to receive the fellowship this year. The fellowship program was established to promote, recognize and support master’s level study and research within the Electron Devices Society’s field of interest.
Enes received his BS degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Bilkent. His undergraduate research activities focused on utilizing surface plasmons to achieve functional structures and enhanced optical absorption. He is currently working on the development and characterization of actively tunable optical materials and their use in the realization of novel reconfigurable optical nanodevices. He is also interested in the development of materials to be used as alternatives to metals in plasmonics. He has authored or coauthored over 15 journal and conference papers.
