[1]Trident Academy of Technology, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India

Nearly seven lakh Indians die of cancer, while over 10 lakh are newly diagnosed with some form of the disease every year. Surgical resection is not always feasible in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. Microwave Coagulation Therapy (MCT) has been used as an alternative to resection and its efficiency has been evaluated in tissue microwave irradiation from a dipole antenna causes water ...

Previous studies proposed using bipolar radiofrequency ablation across two catheters placed on opposing surfaces of the ventricular wall to create transmural lesions. 2D and 3D models were built and solved with COMSOL Multiphysics software. With these models, it was possible to study the temperature distribution and lesion geometry (Figure), to compare the potential of two ways of applying ...

Introduction: Domestic microwave ovens are widely used to heat food products, because of rapid and convenient heating. Nonuniform heating is the biggest issue in microwave heating process, which also causes food quality and safety issues. Microwave heating models are promising tools to assist in developing food products that deliver uniform heating. Due to intensive heating, moisture evaporation ...

Analysis of a Planar Inverted-F Mobile Handset Antenna with Reduced Radiation Towards the Human Head

C. Anandan[1]
[1]Cochin University of Science and Technology, Cochin, Kerala, India

This paper deals with the simulation and analysis of SAR and temperature distribution induced by a Planar Inverted-F Antenna on human head model using COMSOL Multiphysics® software. The goal of this paper is to compare the SAR and temperature distributions of omni-directional PIFA with that of a PIFA with reduced radiation towards human head. The two antennas are designed to operate at 900 MHz ...

[1]Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia

This paper presents the electrical and thermal analysis of an OLED module. The OLED module consists of the OLED tile and the DC-DC converter incorporated in its backplane. The DC-DC converter is realized as an integrated circuit and its inductor is embedded in the the backplane. The DC-DC converter is highly efficient, but a fraction of the electrical power is dissipated in the integrated ...
