Have a cutting edge design idea that you think will be the next big thing? Then here’s a great opportunity to tell the world about it. — The Create the Future design contest. The Create the Future design contest presented by the Tech Briefs Media Group, Nordson EFD, and COMSOL is now accepting entries for the 10th annual contest. The contest was created to stimulate and reward engineering innovation, and it does so by bringing in thousands of new design ideas […]

While thinking about the blog post I published previously, about the hemisphere spiral antenna, I came across this article about RFIDs. Radio Frequency Identifications are small, inexpensive chips, which use RF to send stored information while being fixed to almost any gadget or personal effect.

Reading physorg.com, I came across this story about miniaturizing antennas for smaller wireless devices. Apparently, the size of the antenna often limits the size of the wireless device – so let’s make those antennas smaller. The article is about a group from the University of Michigan who achieves this by using a hemispherical substrate with a spiraling antenna taking advantage of the volume that the hemisphere provides.

As part of COMSOL’s commitment to the Multiphysics Modeling community, we offer a forum where COMSOL models and other material can be shared; the Model Exchange. I was just looking through the Model Exchange when I noticed a user from way back had posted their model of a horn antenna.

Gecko lizards use dry adhesion forces to climb vertical and even backward-slanting walls. Yet, despite the strength they provide for holding their body to such walls, you can easily pluck them from their surface, and no residue is left behind. Imagine doing that with a TV.

The blog post I wrote about Intel’s Concurrency Test produced some traffic, so I thought I would follow it up with some resources we have to support our users interested in modeling with clusters. First, I noticed a hugely popular thread in our Discussion Forum, with almost 11,000 views on the subject.

One of the things I do at COMSOL is to make some of the images we use in our marketing material. I was working on a picture of a piezoelectric microtweezer for an ad that would be used for our MEMS Module, as the one you can see below. That’s when I started wondering what these microtweezers actually do.

COMSOL and Simpleware have been collaborating for some years now. Together we offer a solution for our users to easily and efficiently include their images as geometries or meshes in COMSOL Multiphysics, for them to then be modeled. We asked our colleague at Simpleware, Ingrid Weber, to tell us about what’s new in this version that is going to be presented at their upcoming webinar.
