Dr. Murat CELEP (Head of Laboratory)
Murat Celep graduated from the Tekirdağ Vocational Schools of University of Trakya in 1992 and then graduated from the department of Electronics and Communication Engineering of Kocaeli University in 1999. He received his M.Sc. degree and Ph.D. degree from the department of Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2004 and in 2013 respectively.
In 1995, he worked at the company of CEDETAŞ for a while and he started to work at RF and Microwave Laboratory of TÜBİTAK UME in 1997. He is responsible for performing primary and secondary levels of power, s- parameters, impedance, attenuation, and noise measurements at RF and microwave frequencies, installing and characterizing measurement systems, and uncertainty calculations.
He has taken part in national and international key comparisons on microwave power and S-parameters on the behalf of TÜBİTAK UME.
He also worked on ensuring the traceability of voltage to be taken out from power standards in the frequency range from 100 MHz to 1 GHz and on specific absorption rate (SAR) measurement system operation and characterizing SAR measurements. He is currently the head of the RF and Microwave Laboratory Laboratory.
Handan Sakarya received a B.S. degree in physics from the Middle East Technical University in 1992 and M.Sc. degree in physics from Kocaeli University.
In 1993, she started working at TÜBİTAK UME in the DC Resistance Laboratory as a researcher where she mainly engaged in establishment and maintenance of primary and secondary DC resistance measurement systems. She participated in the provision of calibration and testing services to industry and took part in international and national comparisons.
Since 2012, she has been working in the RF & Microwave Laboratory where she has been mainly engaged in s-parameter and RF power measurements. She has been taking part in national and international projects. Also, she has been working within the TÜBİTAK UME Quality Management System as a Group Management Representative.
Dr. Aliye KARTAL DOĞAN
Aliye Kartal Doğan graduated from the Department of Physics of Middle East Technical University in 1994. She received a M.Sc. degree in Physics from the Gebze Institute of Technology in 2001 and Ph.D. degree from the Department of Physics of Kocaeli University in 2012.
She began to work at Temperature laboratory of TÜBİTAK UME as a researcher in 1996. She was the acting head of temperature laboratory from 2005 to 2011 and has 15 years experience in thermometry. She was responsible for the development of the national standards of temperature and relative humidity. She was involved in establishment and maintenance of primary and secondary temperature measurement systems, realization and dissemination of the temperature scale, assuring the traceability on temperature measurements, design, construction and characterization of reference temperature fixed point cells, participation and coordination of national and international comparisons, calibration of the primary and secondary level of temperature measurements and evaluation of uncertainties, consultancy and training on temperature, technical assessment of the laboratories to be accredited on the behalf of TURKAK. She was representative of TÜBİTAK UME delegate in the CCT (The Consultative Committee for Thermometry) and also member of the Working Group 3 “Uncertainties” and the Working Group 6 “Humidity Measurements” of the CCT. She was also the contact person for thermometry at the technical committee of EURAMET and IMEKO until December 2011.
She has been working on specific absorption rate (SAR) measurement system operation, and characterizing the SAR measurement since October 2012.
She has been working at RF and Microwave Laboratory since December 2014.
Dr. Erkan DANACI
Erkan DANACI graduated from the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of Engineering and Architecture Faculty of Selcuk University. He received a M.Sc. and PhD degrees on Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Selcuk University in 1996 and 2002 respectively.
He was research assistant on Circuit and Systems Theory in Selcuk University in between 1992 and 2000. He was also part time researcher on RF circuit design at a defence industry project in TÜBİTAK MAM BTAE. He started to work at RF & Microwave Laboratory of TÜBİTAK UME as researcher. He was head of Strategic Planning and Business Development Department of TÜBİTAK UME in between 2007 and 2014. He was also in charge as Acting Deputy Director of TÜBİTAK UME in between 2011 and 2014. He has started to work at RF & Microwave Laboratory as Lead Senior Researcher since November 2014.
His interests are primary and secondary levels s parameters, impedance, noise measurement and Artificial Neural Network applications.
He is delegation of Turkey in EURAMET TC-IM and in FGNMID which is a sub group of EURAMET TC-IM. He is also member of executive and scientific committee of International Istanbul Smart Grid Congress and Exhibition.
He has The Young Scientific Award from 2002 CPEM in Canada. He is chapter writer in two books, 3 scientific paper and 17 national and international publications.
