Laser Heating of Semitransparent Materials
Application ID: 112631
The following model demonstrates the usage of the Radiative Beam in Absorbing Media interface for computing the heating of semitransparent materials. Specifically, the model analyzes how a Gaussian profile laser beam heats two different semitransparent materials deposited onto a silicon wafer.
A more detailed description of this model can be found in our blog post “Modeling the Pulsed Laser Heating of Semitransparent Materials”.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
