The Analysis of High Birefringence Photonic Crystal Fiber with Elliptical Air Holes Cladding

H.-H. Yeh, Y.-F. Chau
Department of Electronic Engineering, Ching Yun University, Taiwan

High birefringence induced by complex unit cells of elliptical air holes in photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) is analyzed numerically using COMSOL Multiphysics. Two types of our proposed PCFs and a previous structure are investigated. The statistical correlations between the birefringence and the various parameters are obtained. The birefringence is found to be largely dependent on the variation of ...

An Efficient Approach to Identifying a Complete Photonic Band Gap in Two-dimensional Photonic Crystals with Omnidirectional Light Propagation

Ming-Chieh Lin
Assistant Professor
NanoScience Simulation Laboratory
Department of Physics
Fu Jen Catholic University
Taipei, Taiwan

Omnidirectional light propagation in two-dimensional (2D) photonic crystals (PCs) is investigated. An efficient approach to identifying a complete photonic band gap (PBG) in 2D PCs has been developed. The in-plane band structure of 2D photonic crystals is calculated by an adaptive finite element method, as implemented in FEMLAB. Adopting the suitable boundary conditions, the eigenvalues can be ...

Space-charge-limited Current in the Quantum Regime by Solving the Schroedinger-Poisson Equation

M.-C. Lin
NanoScience Simulation Laboratory, Department of Physics, Fu Jen Catholic University, Taipei County, Taiwan

The Child-Langmuir law gives the maximum electron current, known as the space-charge-limited current, which arises because the space charge in the diode presents a potential barrier to the incident electrons. While there are modifications due to geometrical and relativistic effects, the limited current remains a fundamental quantity characterizing the beam-gap interaction. In the research of ...

Simulation of an Atomic Force Microscopy Probe Considering Damping Effects

C.-C. Chou, C.-W. Lee, and M.-H. Yang
Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering, National Taiwan Ocean University, Taiwan

This paper proposes a numerical model of an atomic force microscopy’s (AFM) probe using the finite element method to simulate the probe’s dynamic behavior under two damping effects: structural damping and squeezed-film damping. These damping effects, especially that of squeezed-film damping, play an important role in AFM’s tapping mode while implemented in an atmospheric or aqueous ...

Numerical Simulation of Sound-structure Interactions in a Japanese Drum

Y. F. Hwang
Electroacoustic Graduate Program
Feng Chia University
Taichung, Taiwan

In this presentation, the sound-structure interactions in a Japanese drum is solved by using a self-developed FE Model and a COMSOL Multiphysics model. The paralleled development of the two models allows a side-by-side cross checking and comparison to ensure modeling correctness and computational accuracy. The results show excellent agreement with those obtained from a semi-analytical ...

Simulation of Electrochromic Components

Hwa-Chiang Lo
Associate Researcher
Industrial Technology Research Institute
Tainan, Taiwan

In this presentation, a solution-phase electrochromic device (ED) is modeled. A reasonable recombination plane is identified and a limiting species due to the diffusion process between the recombination plane and electrode surface is found. Diffusive and electrochemical theories are applied to plot the concentration profile and predict the limiting current value for a ...

A Discussion on Load Cell Practice Theory – Use COMSOL

W. L. Wang, W. H. Liao, and C. G. Zeng
Department of Mechanical Design Engineering, National Formosa University

Though used widely in weight measurement, load cell’s theory is tedious enough to practice. This paper explains and discusses how strain gauges and Wheatstone Bridges work, both of which are important components of the load cell. COMSOL Multiphysics applied to analyze the deformation of load cells, yields an accurate result verified by experiments, and demonstrates that a good load cell design ...
