In microwave heating applications, the energy is introduced directly into the volume of the material and as consequence the quality of the process is highly dependent on the uniformity of the electromagnetic field distribution along it. That is, the non uniformity of the heating is a potential problem with serious consequences. Thermal runaway is the most critical, in materials with temperature ...

Key-Holes Magnetron Design and Multiphysics Simulation

[1]Univeristy of Rome "Tor Vergata" - Department of Electronic Engineering, Rome, Italy

This paper describes the design and characterization of an 8 slots resonant cavity Magnetron, which undergoes thermal-structural effects due to cathode heating. The proposed study involves Thermal Stress, Eigen-frequency and Particle Tracing analysis based on COMSOL Multiphysics®. Magnetrons are well known and often utilized High Power Radiofrequency Vacuum Tube oscillators. In order to ...

Whippany, USA

The flexibility of COMSOL Multiphysics enables a variety of computational approaches to be applied towards solving electromagnetic problems across the whole spectrum. I will describe techniques for studying resonant electromagnetic interactions in a range of structures, including materials with negative electric permittivity (metals at optical frequencies), and small microwave resonators and ...

Large-area, light-weight electromagnetic protection (EP) structures are needed to protect sensitive microwave sensors and communications systems from high-power microwave (HPM) and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) threats. This paper presents the use of COMSOL Multiphysics® for electromagnetic simulation of a plasma-based frequency selective surface (FSS) structure that can provide significant ...

Self-Consistent Modeling of Thin Conducting Wires and Their Interaction with the Surrounding Electromagnetic Field

G. Eriksson[1]
[1]ABB AB, Corporate Research, Västerås, Sweden

It is demonstrated how the RF Module of COMSOL Multiphysics® can be used to approximately model thin conducting wires or cables and how they interact with a surrounding electromagnetic field. Despite being non-stringent the method can reasonably well predict currents induced by an applied electromagnetic field in wires, and networks of wires, as well as fields radiated from current-carrying ...

III-nitride semiconductors and gallium nitride in particular have recently become increasingly important for optoelectronic applications like LEDs, solar cells and photodetectors due to their attractive properties like wide and direct bandgap, high power handling capability and high breakdown field. Nanoplasmonic enhancement of photodetectors by scattering effects has been well known and is ...

Finite-element Analysis of Properties in Real and Idealized Photonic Crystal Fibres, Application to Supercontinuum Generation

Gérôme, F., Viale, P., Tombelaine, V., Leproux, P., Auguste, J.L., Février, S., Blondy, J.M., Couderc, V.
IRCOM, CNRS UMR 6615, Limoges, France

Using a full-vector finite-element method, we calculate modal properties in index-guiding photonic crystal fibres. The influence of the deformation of the geometry in actual fibre structures is evaluated and compared to the idealized-model. These results are applied to the supercontinuum generation. Moreover, development of MATLAB softwares for FEMLAB 3.1 are presented.

[1]Prairie View A&M University, Prairie View, TX, USA

The accurate estimate of values of electromagnetic parameters are essential to determine the final circuit speeds and functionality for designing of high-performance integrated circuits and integrated circuits packaging. In this paper, the quasi-TEM analyses of symmetrical triple coupled Coplanar Waveguide (CPW) transmission lines and multilayer CPW broadside coupled-line balun are successfully ...

Universal Dielectric Response of Atmospheric Ice Using COMSOL Multiphysics®

U.N. Mughal[1], M.S. Virk[1], K. Zaman[1]
[1]Narvik University College, Narvik, Norway

Heterogeneous materials with different phases, are conductive and insulating (dielectric), and are physically present in different natural materials as e.g. atmospheric ice. Jonscher’s proposed ‘universal dielectric response’ is not sufficient for such materials, as it only reflects conductivity as a nonlinear function of frequency, whereas at lower temperatures dipolar vibrations are also ...

Virtual Prototyping of a Microwave Fin Line Power Spatial Combiner Amplifier

[1]University of Rome "Tor Vergata" - Department of Electronic Engineering, Rome, Italy

This paper describes the Virtual Prototyping based on a COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation for a novel Microwave Fin Taper (FT) Spatial Power Combiner (SPC) Amplifier. The analyzed system is waveguide (WG) based, and uses FT Probes to convert the energy of a rectangular WG EM fundamental mode to a Microstrip Transmission Line TEM mode, in order to be amplified by a Solid State Power ...
