Nano-structures consisting of layered metal-dielectric stacks (MDSs) can be designed to have evanescent transmission and reflection coefficients that oscillate as a function of transverse wavevector and frequency. However, these structures always suffer from the material losses and surface roughness that are detrimental to image reconstruction. As such, we propose an optimized planar anisotropic ...

Interaction between Light Wave and Asymmetric Metal/Insulator/Metal (MM) Structure Coupled with Subwavelength Holes at Optical Fiber Apex

Yasushi OSHIKANE[1]

[1]Osaka University, Suita, Osaka, Japan

Electromagnetic simulation of light wave interaction at around a tip of single mode optical fiber, which is formed of circular truncated cone shape, has been studied numerically by COMSOL Multiphysics and the RF Module (and Wave Optics Module). The fiber tip has specific nanostructure of asymmetric metal/insulator/metal (MIM) layers coupled with subwavelength holes. Behavior of surface plasmon ...

Thermal Natural Convection Simulations with COMSOL Multiphysics® in Comparison with Measurements - new

H. van Halewijn[1]
[1]Fontys University of Applied Physics, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

In a laboratory setup a horizontal rod is heated on one side. By natural convection a stable temperature pattern is developed. Using the Nusselt formulation of the natural convection of cylindrical rods, the temperature distribution can be calculated. Only a good match of the simulations and the measurements can be reached when taking into account all the non-linear physics in the system. In ...

[1]Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani - Hyderabad Campus, Hyderabad, Telangana, India

In this paper we present results of simulations done to predict the behavior of a system consisting of DNA molecules in an aqueous medium under the combined effect of AC Electroosmosis and Dielectrophoresis (DEP). ACEO is caused by the movement of fluid particles under the influence of the electric field. DEP is caused by polarization of the DNA particle. Two different electrode geometries ...

Convective Cooling of Electronic Components - new

[1]AltaSim Technologies, LLC, Columbus, OH, USA

In response to continued miniaturization and increased multi-functionality of electronic circuits, the number of integrated circuit (IC) packages on the circuit board continues to increase. As a consequence the operating power density increases and significant increases in the operating temperature of devices result. To maintain operation and long term performance device temperature must be ...

Modelagem dos Processos de Descarga em Eletrodos de Baterias de Chumbo-Ácido

[1] Instituto Lactec, Curitiba, PR, Brasil

Foi desenvolvido um modelo 3D para simular descargas de eletrodos de baterias de chumbo-ácido. O modelo inclui a formação de filmes isolantes de sulfato de chumbo durante a descarga e permite visualizar a analisar a evolução da distribuição de linhas de corrente, os efeitos de bordas, os gradientes de concentração e outros fenômenos, nas regiões externas do eletrodo e no interior de poros.

Predicting Critical Current as a Function of Magnetic Field in High-Temperature Superconductors

J. Doody [1], P. Michael [1], R. Vieria [1], W. Beck [1], L. Zhou [1], J. Irby [1],
[1] Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Plasma Science and Fusion Center, Cambridge, MA, USA

REBCO tapes belong to a class of high-temperature superconductors (HTS) that can be superconducting at liquid nitrogen temperatures (77K) as opposed to typical superconductors such as Nb3Sn which need to operate at liquid helium temperatures (4K). One important aspect of designing a super conducting coil is the ability to predict the critical current above which the conductor becomes ...

[1] Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France

Electromagnetic and thermal simulations are achieved using COMSOL Multiphysics® with 2D axisymmetrical finite–element method for a percutaneous microwave hyperthermia system with ex–vivo experiments on different biological tissues. Temperature variation and distribution are studied in the biological tissues submitted to an open ended coaxial cable as microwave applicator. Three types of heat ...

Simulation of Reverse Saturable Absorption

[1] U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Hillandale, MD, USA

This poster describes a simulation of reverse saturable absorption in a solution C_60 molecules using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. The optical processes in C_60 can be modeled through a five-level system. The energy states include three levels of the singlet state, coupled to two levels of an excited triplet state. The optical process is modeled with simple rate equations coupled to a ...

Adequate cooling of beverages is a major issue in planning of several types of events, e.g. poster sessions at conferences. One crucial factor is the time needed to cool beverages from its initial temperature to the desired drinking temperature. We present a way to determine a close approximation for the cooling behavior of three types of commonly used beverage containers using COMSOL ...
