### Comparing Two Interfaces for High-Frequency Modeling

##### Andrew Strikwerda May 26, 2016

It is always important to choose the correct tool for the job, and choosing the correct interface for high-frequency electromagnetic simulations is no different. In this blog post, we take a simple example of a plane wave incident upon a dielectric slab in air and solve it in two different ways to highlight the practical differences and relative advantages of the Electromagnetic Waves, Frequency Domain interface and the Electromagnetic Waves, Beam Envelopes interface.

### Model Cables and Transmission Lines in COMSOL Multiphysics

##### Andrew Strikwerda February 9, 2016

Electrical cables are classified by parameters such as impedance and power attenuation. In this blog post, we consider a case for which analytic solutions exist: a coaxial cable. We will show you how to compute the cable parameters from a COMSOL Multiphysics simulation of the electromagnetic fields. Once we understand how this is done for a coaxial cable, we can then compute these parameters for an arbitrary type of transmission line or cable.
