How do mobile technologies affect work and private lives? The case of Turkish banking professionals
Mobile technologies (MTs) became important part of infrastructure in service industries. The impacts of MT usage in work are shown to be significant; improving the productivity, responsiveness, effectiveness and flexibility ...
Spatial slip behavior of large strike-slip fault belts: Implications for the Holocene slip rates of the eastern termination of the North Anatolian Fault, Turkey
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2015-12)
We present new data on Holocene slip rates for the eastern end of the North Anatolian Fault (NAF) by using the optically stimulated luminescence ages of the offset terrace deposits at two sites, where a total of four ...
Quantum metrology: Surpassing the shot-noise limit with Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-11-09)
Entanglement is at the heart of quantum technologies such as quantum information and quantum metrology. Providing larger quantum Fisher information (QFI), entangled systems can be better resources than separable systems ...
Temperature lags of luminescence measurements in a commercial luminescence reader
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2015-09-15)
The temperature recorded in thermoluminescence and optically stimulated luminescence equipments is not the temperature of the sample but that of the heating element on which the thermocouple is attached. Depending upon the ...
Deterministic generation of large scale atomic W states
(Optical Soc Amer, 2016-05-30)
We present a deterministic scheme for generating large-scale atomic W states in a cavity QED system via a simple expansion mechanism, which is realized only by a detuned interaction between two identical atoms and a vacuum ...
Thermo-microstretch elastic bodies and plane waves
(IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 2011)
In the present work, vibration problems of rectangular plates are considered for the determination of upper bounds to the unknown microstretch material properties. The frequencies are obtained by extending the Ritz method ...
A hollow cylinder problem in microstretch theory
A hollow cylinder micro-damaged tube under pressure problem is discussed. Micro damage is modeled with Eringen's microstretch theory and the displacement and its comparison with classical result are given.
IT Multisourcing in a telecommunication company
(Int Business Information Management Assoc-IBIMA, 2012)
Organizations have used numerous sourcing strategies to lower IT costs and improve IT service levels. However, a number of these sourcing strategies have failed to deliver on their expected outcomes. Multisourcing has been ...
Impact of climate change on natural snow reliability, snowmaking capacities, and wind conditions of ski Resorts in Northeast Turkey: a dynamical downscaling approach
(Mdpi Ag, 2016-04)
Many ski resorts worldwide are going through deteriorating snow cover conditions due to anthropogenic warming trends. As the natural and the artificially supported, i.e., technical, snow reliability of ski resorts diminish, ...
Eolianite and coquinite as evidence of MIS 6 and 5, NW Black Sea coast, Turkey
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-04)
This paper discusses the implications of a lowstand carbonate eolianite and overlying transgressive sequence of coquinite at Şile on the Turkish Black Sea coast based on composition, depositional characteristics and optical ...
