At the Fontys University of Applied Physics (The Netherlands) a plasma etcher has been acquired for educational purposes. The machine operates at low power up to 30 Watt and is driven with a magnetic coil at 13.56 MHz. The use of COMSOL Multiphysics software will be discussed to simulate the temperature and mass fractions of the activated and ionized atoms in the gas. The simulations will be ...

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 ...

Use of the terahertz(THz) region, which is unexplored frequency band, is investigated and expected for the next-generation high-speed wireless communication. In this presentation, we propose a monolithic integrated device by using mesa-shaped compound semiconductor and a thin-metal broadband antenna which is capable in THz operation, and we analyze several characteristics of the device by using ...
Analysis of a Planar Inverted-F Mobile Handset Antenna with Reduced Radiation Towards the Human Head
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 ...

In this paper resonances in tapered double-port TEM waveguides are used as benchmark for simulations. FEM simulations with COMSOL Multiphysics® and simulations using generalised telegraphist's equations with MATLAB® are compared to ananalytical method capable of calculating the resonances of higher order modes. It is valid for tapered double-port TEM waveguides with constant ...

Upon operation, the magnetron of a conventional microwave oven induces a pattern of standing electromagnetic waves in the oven cavity. Interactions with the field define the amount of energy absorbed in a part of a food object within the cavity. The well-known inhomogeneous heating produced in a microwave oven is partially an effect of the standing waves’ natural nodes and antinodes and ...

The purpose of this work was to establish a reliable radio frequency (RF) heating simulation which directly provides transient temperatures for medical devices with high geometric fidelity. These temporal results of localized temperatures can be used to determine conditions for safety of medical devices in the magnetic resonance (MR) environment. Information from this work will directly benefit ...

The optimal orientations of different single-photon detector designs were determined by COMSOL software package. Absorption of niobium-nitride (NbN) stripes in two different (p=220 nm, 3p=660 nm) periodic patterns integrated with plasmonic elements was studied. In OC-SNSPDs consisting of ~quarter-photon-wavelength nano-cavity the optimum direction is perpendicular incidence onto NbN stripes in P ...

The Micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) technology provides us a platform to interface between mechanical and electrical components. In this paper, we have designed MEMS accelerometer based on piezoelectric property, and simulated using COMSOL Multiphysics®. The design, which has PZT kept in the annular diaphragm, provides good sensitivity. When this accelerometer is subjected to stress ...

Currently there is much interest in electromagnetic metamaterials [1-9]. In our work we have focused on design of tunable metamaterial which can be made within available technology. In proposed design we use metallic split-ring resonators and thin-wires (Figure 1). Moreover we have decided to introduce nematic liquid crystal layer in design to obtain tunability (Figure 2). One can control ...
