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:
