‘Metamaterial’ is one of the most recent topic in several areas of science and technology due to its vast potential in various applications. These are artificially fabricated materials which exhibit negative permittivity and/or negative permeability. The unusual electromagnetic properties of metamaterial has opened more opportunities for better antenna design to surmount the limitations of ...

In this paper the heat transfer module in COMSOL is utilized to simulate internal heating of an Avalanche Photodiode due to light-induced current through a resistivity that depends on charge carrier concentrations in the device. Initial tests are done by modeling the heating process on a previously-solved silicon p-n junction as a proof of concept before advancing to a more complicated geometry. ...

This work highlights the use of COMSOL Multiphysics software for simulating the fundamental electromagnetic mode in a single mode optical fiber, and analyze the effect of refractive index profile , on the overall dispersion of a launched signal . For long haul communication, it is of utmost importance to minimize dispersion in optical fibers, and hence by suitably tailoring the refractive index ...

INTRODUCTION: Point of care diagnostics aimed at low-resource settings need to be relatively simple, robust and low-cost. The most commonly-used diagnostic platform in these settings is the lateral flow assay (LFA). LFAs are paper-based immunoassays designed to perform on-strip binding with analytes in patient samples in order to generate a visual signal if disease-specific antigen is ...

Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is a fingerprint spectroscopy whose sensitivity is down to single molecule level. The mechanism of SERS is mainly contributed to huge enhancement of local electric field, which originated from surface plasmon resonance of metal nanostructures. It is very important to exactly calculate the local enhancement in the electric field strength for right ...

Negative Refractive Lens (NRL) has shown that an optical system can produce images with details below the classic Abbe diffraction limit. This optical system transmits the electromagnetic fields, emitted by an object plane, towards an image plane producing the same field distribution in both planes. Recently, two devices with positive refraction, the Maxwell Fish Eye lens (MFE) (Leonhardt et al. ...

Silver and gold nanoparticles are widely used in the field of surface enhanced raman spectroscopy (SERS) because of the unique plasmonic properties. Plasmons or surface plasmon resonance result from the wavelength dependent dielectric properties of noble metals like Ag, Au, Pt etc., which give rise to enhanced near-electric field which is the primary reason for enhancement of Raman signal in ...

This paper presents one approach to the modeling of an abrupt junction PIN photodiode light sensor using COMSOL Multiphysics software and the incorporated SPICE® capability. The current model is built using the capabilities of SPICE in COMSOL Multiphysics 4.0. This model demonstrates the use of SPICE and the AC/DC Module to build a conduction current, rather than an electrostatic, model. This ...
