We present in this paper a model to study new memory devices with embedded nanocrystals, emerging in microelectronics. The theoretical calculations and their implementation in FEMLAB are detailed, leading to a quite simple and realistic model. One key point for these memories is the electronic tunnel transfer to store the charge into a nanocrystal. This is why we carry out a brief analysis of ...

The performance of simplified cylindrical cloaks with various material parameters was investigated. The performance metric was the overall scattering width of the cloak with various objects in the hidden region. COMSOL was used to simulate three cloaks with different material parameters to determine the total field in the simulation domain. For all cloaks simulated in this effort, a PEC-lined ...

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, a new quasi-TEM capacitance and inductance analysis of multiconductor multilayer interconnects is successfully demonstrated using the finite element method (FEM) ...

The silicon substrate has a significant effect on the inductance parameter of a lossy interconnect line on an integrated circuit. It is essential to take this into account in determining the transmission line electrical parameters. In this paper, a new quasi-TEM capacitance and inductance analysis of multiconductor multilayer interconnects is successfully demonstrated using the finite element ...

Ultrafast optical generation of pseudosurface acoustic waves is investigated in hypersonic surface phononic crystals. The thermomechanics is modeled from first-principles to follow the initial impulsive heat-driven displacement in the time domain. Spectral decomposition of the displacement over the surface phononic crystal eigenmodes outlines asymmetric resonances featuring the coupling between ...

Determination of tissue optical properties distributions is very important for determining light fluence distribution during photodynamic therapy (PDT). In this study, an interstitial diffuse optical tomography (iDOT) system was used to characterize the spatial distribution of optical properties for a series of mathematical phantoms as well as verification measurements in a prostate ...
Excitation, Propagation, and Focusing of Surface Plasmon Polaritons around A Pair of Subwavelength Holes on Silver Thin Film
Osaka University, Osaka, Japan
Simulation results regarding excitation, propagation, and focusing of SPP waves around a pair of subwavelength holes on silver thin film by COMSOL Multiphysics + RF Module are presented. This research has been performed for development of a novel tiny spot of extremely intensified optical near-field at the apex of optical fiber probe for scanning near-field optical microscope.
