Optimizing ISFET Designs with Multiphysics Simulation

July 2, 2018

Ion-sensitive field-effect transistors (ISFETs) measure pH levels for soil analysis, the production of dairy products, and more. Multiphysics simulation can help us optimize these devices.

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.

Learning Quantum Mechanics Concepts with Double-Barrier Structures

August 30, 2017

Quantum mechanics is a notoriously difficult subject to learn — and teach. Modeling a double-barrier structure is an effective way to teach quantum mechanics concepts to physics students.

Computing the Band Gap in Superlattices with the Schrödinger Equation

May 31, 2017

You can easily compute the effective band gap for a superlattice structure by using a predefined Schrödinger Equation interface and building a simulation application.

Analyzing a Silicon Solar Cell Design with the Semiconductor Module

April 27, 2017

You can model a solar (or photovoltaic) cell consisting of a 1D Si p-n junction using the Semiconductor Module add-on. We feature a tutorial model to provide more details.

Calculating the Emission Spectra from Common Light Sources

January 14, 2016

We use COMSOL Multiphysics® to calculate the emission spectra of 4 common light sources: natural daylight, incandescent light bulbs, fluorescent light bulbs, and LED bulbs.

Creating a Wavelength Tunable LED Simulation App

May 18, 2015

Learn how to turn a model of an LED device into a user-friendly simulation app, which can then be used to assess the impact of different designs on the LED’s emission characteristics.

How to Perform a 3D Analysis of a Semiconductor Device

January 26, 2015

Open for a comprehensive introduction to performing 3D analyses of semiconductor devices in COMSOL Multiphysics®. We demonstrate with a bipolar transistor example.
