Modeling a MOS Capacitor with the Semiconductor Module

June 20, 2018

MOS capacitors (MOSCAPs) contain 3 main parts: a semiconductor body or substrate, an insulator film, and a metal electrode (or gate). You can use the Semiconductor Module to model MOSCAP designs.

What Is the Doppler Effect?

May 29, 2018

A siren passes by and you hear a change in pitch. A bug swims across a puddle, causing ripples on the surface. A star in the sky has a reddish hue. These are all examples of the Doppler effect.

The Elephants of Materials Science: SMAs Never Forget Their Shape

May 11, 2018

Learn about the history and use cases of shape memory alloys such as nitinol. You can also model the phase transformation of these unique materials in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Modeling Fluid-Structure Interaction in a Heart Valve

April 25, 2018

The average human heart beats 100,000 times per day, but what if the person has cardiac issues? Modeling fluid-structure interaction in a heart valve can help researchers develop new treatments.
