Optimizing Microwave Furnaces for Solar-Grade Silicon Production

June 8, 2017

For silicon to be considered “solar grade”, it has to be 99.9999% pure. Therefore, microwave furnaces used to produce solar-grade silicon need to be optimized for quality and efficient output.

How to Calculate a Capacitance Matrix in COMSOL Multiphysics®

June 7, 2017

Calculating the capacitance between two conductors is simple, but adding more conductors to the mix (as is the case with touchscreens, transmission lines, and capacitive sensors) adds complexity.
