To modelize infinite photonic crystal fibre (PCF) with 2D-finite-geometry mode solver, it is necessary to use a perfectly matched layer (PML). We have performed a new type of PML design to simulate propagation in PCFs. The results obtained with index-guiding PCFs are in very good agreement with previous theoretical published results. Our PML is quickly optimized. The link between MATLAB and ...

The optical scattering and absorption of gold nanorods (GNRs) depends on its size, shape, and surroundings. This dependence is due to both intrinsic and extrinsic effects. A good understanding of this dependence is needed for applications of GNRs in photo-thermal therapy, optical and opto-acoustic imaging, biosensing, and other photonic areas. Extrinsic effects are caused by the production of ...

Use of the terahertz(THz) region, which is unexplored frequency band, is investigated and expected for the next-generation high-speed wireless communication. In this presentation, we propose a monolithic integrated device by using mesa-shaped compound semiconductor and a thin-metal broadband antenna which is capable in THz operation, and we analyze several characteristics of the device by using ...

Plasmonic resonances arising in gold nanoparticles lead to strongly localized near-field enhancements. These enhancements generate strong field gradients that can be exploited in particle trapping. On the other hand plasmonic resonances lead to enhanced absorption and heat generation. Gold nanoparticles have been used to kill cancer cells based on plasmonic heating. We have investigated the ...

Since the advent of Terhertz(THz) technology, improving the THz emission power has been one of the major research goal. One of the methods to increase the THz emission power is to increase the coupling of excitation laser light to the dielectric substrate.The field of nano-plasmonics exploits light-matter interactions at nanometer scale. With the help of metallic nano-structure at ...

This paper will describe some applications of COMSOL Multiphysics to the analysis of Frequency Selective Surface (FSS) structures. Particular attention will be devoted to the possibility of designing a stealthy antenna using the FSS structure. In fact, since it possesses a dual filter concept of frequency and polarization for electromagnetic wave, the Radar Cross Section (RCS) of the antenna is ...

The study of extremely low frequency electromagnetic wave propagation in the ionospheric cavities of celestial bodies in the Solar System follows an approach similar to that developed for the Earth. It contributes to the characterization of the atmospheric electric circuit and associated energy sources, and to the identification of the inner and outer cavity boundaries. A wave propagation, 3D ...

The eigenmode solver is used to analyze the behavior of small multi-element antennas. We perform an eigenmode simulation of the shorted antenna structure, using perfectly matched layer (PML) outer boundaries, and for some simulations, we include a current source located at the feed point of the antenna.Doing this enables the eigenmode simulation to determine both the Q-factor and radiation ...

A proton linac drives particles using the electric field of a high power RF standing wave in a resonant cavity. The design of these cavities involve several aspects of multiphysics simulation, that have been accomplished using COMSOL. The first step consist on the geometric optimization of the cavities in order to have the correct frequency while maximizing some figures of merit. This task ...
