Electrofluidic transport through a single walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) is enhanced by electroosmosis. Electroosmosis is made possible in these devices by the combination of a large slip length within SWCNTs and the interfacial potential at the solution/nanotube interface. A computational model of a SWCNT device was developed using COMSOL Multiphysics to investigate the complete electrical ...

We present quantitative nano-scale analysis of the 3D spatial structure of an anticorrosive aluminium epoxy barrier marine coating obtained by ptychographic X-ray computed tomography (PXCT) [1-3]. We then use COMSOL Multiphysics® software to perform simulations on the acquired real 3D structure to demonstrate how percolation through this actual 3D structure impedes ion diffusion in the ...
Powerful automation and optimization methods for Material- and Process analysis with COMSOL Multiphysics and Matlab
SGL Group, Technology & Innovation, Meitingen, Germany
Thomas Frommelt received his PhD in physics in 2007 from the University of Augsburg for experimental work and simulation analysis on acoustically driven microfluidic mixing. In 2008, he joined the SGL Group and introduced COMSOL Multiphysics as the tool for flexible equation based modelling. Since then, he has focused on carbon material and process simulation employing methods of optimization ...

Micro Mirrors is a versatile device which has been gaining popularity and this finds application in fields such as optical switching, display and in medical fields for non-invasive imaging. A thermally actuated mirror moves in either positive or negative directions of x and y. The ends of thermal actuators are attached to the edges of the mirror. Thus when voltage is applied to the thermal ...

In our recent experiments we are revisiting the topografiner technology for the imaging of surface topography with a resolution of a few nanometers. In these new technique called Near-Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (NFESEM), low-energy electrons are emitted from a polycrystalline tungsten tip via electric-field assisted tunneling. In order to characterize and improve the ...

3D finite element analysis model has been constructed for testing the directional dependence in a novel form of nanowire array gas flow sensor. Single nanowire (p-type single crystal Silicon) model is developed using fluid structure interaction and piezoresistivity components in the MEMS Module for COMSOL Multiphysics® software. Change in resistivity tensor due to induced stress in the nanowire ...

Increasing attention has been paid to application of the quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D) sensor for monitoring biomolecular interactions. This paper focuses on a practical application of protein-protein binding affinity measurement at low concentrations and minimal sample sizes (50-200 μl of 20-200 nM), which results in low signal measurement. A model simulating fluid ...

A set of microstructures for in situ stress measurement is presented, based on a lancet principle having dedicated designs for the amplification of dimensional variation induced by internal stress of the materials. The presented technique has an advantage over the traditional rotating structures and wafer curvature measurements in terms of the simplified readout mechanism. The test structures ...

Low-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures, in which charge carriers are confined in a number of spatial dimensions, are the focus of much solid-state physics research, offering superior optical and electronic properties over their bulk counterparts. Both two-dimensional (2D) and zero-dimensional (0D) structures have seen wide-ranging applications in laser diodes, solar cells and LEDs to name ...
