The Boltzmann Equation, Two-Term Approximation Interface
When modeling plasma, you sometimes want to define the electron transport properties as a function of the electron energy. The Boltzmann Equation, Two-Term Approximation interface does just that.
Micromagnetic Simulation with COMSOL Multiphysics®
A guest blogger from Fudan University in China used the Physics Builder in COMSOL Multiphysics to create a “Micromagnetics Module” for performing micromagnetic simulations.
How to Analyze Turbomolecular Pumps with COMSOL Multiphysics®
Modeling gas flow in a turbomolecular pump calls for specialized numerical methods, because at such low pressures, the gas molecules rarely collide with each other.
Computational Electromagnetics Modeling: Which Module to Use?
If you work with a particular electromagnetic device or application area, you might be wondering which module in the COMSOL product suite is right for you. Keep reading for a comprehensive intro.
Global Modeling of a Non-Maxwellian Discharge in COMSOL®
Keep reading for a demonstration of how to model a non-Maxwellian discharge with the Boltzmann equation in the two-term approximation using COMSOL Multiphysics®.
Introduction to Plasma Modeling with Non-Maxwellian EEDFs
Modeling plasma that has a non-Maxwellian electron energy distribution function (EEDF) results in a catch-22. However, this issue can be overcome by building a simulation application.
A Multilevel Approach to Modeling Planar Discharge in CO2 Lasers
Check out the multilevel approach to plasma modeling used by a researcher in the laser industry, who used the flexibility and functionality of COMSOL Multiphysics® to optimize a gas laser design.
MIT’s PSFC Designs a Tokamak to Survive Plasma Disruptions
A group of engineers at MIT’s Plasma Science Fusion Center (PSFC) used multiphysics simulation to address a key challenge in tokamak design: instability due to plasma disruptions.
