Void Shape Evolution of Silicon: Level-Set Approach - new

C. Grau Turuelo[1], C. Breitkopf[1]
[1]Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany

The void shape evolution of silicon is a process driven mainly by surface diffusion which leads to a geometrical transformation of trenches etched in silicon wafers due to surface energy minimization. The temperature, the ambient gas and the annealing time affect the velocity of the process. The use of custom PDEs in COMSOL Multiphysics® software and the Level-Set method provide a good base ...

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 ...

Simulation of Photonic Crystals Particle Filling by Electrospray

Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain

Photonic crystals are widely used in optical applications as waveguides and band filters. Filling the periodic structural material of photonic crystals with other materials is very useful in order to change the optical properties of the devices. In this paper electrostatic COMSOL simulations describing an electrospray deposition of particles in macroporous structures are performed.

Thickness Designs for Micro-Thermoelectric Generators Using Three Dimensional PDE Coefficient-COMSOL Multiphysics 4.2a Analysis

Predicting the optimum thickness and gap size between n-type and p-type legs of micro thermoelectric devices are the major challenges in designing micro thermo electric generators. We have reported the gap size and optimal thickness for optimal output power. We found that the gap size should be 0.1 microns; but, depending on fabrication capability, the gap size can be varied from 0.1 to 6 ...

Electromagnetic Analysis of Cloaking Metamaterial Structures

E. Furlani, and A. Baev
The Institute for Lasers, Photonics and Biophotonics, University at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY, USA

We study cylindrical and spherical shell structures that have cloaking material properties proposed by Pendry et al. We use 2D and 3D time-harmonic analysis to study the field distribution and power flow for various arrangements of these structures. We have shown that the COMSOL RF solver is well suited for the analysis of cloaking metamaterial structures If cloaking material properties can be ...

Linear wave propagation through inhomogeneous structures of size R?? (Fig.1) is a computationally challenging problem, in particular when using finite element methods, due to the steep increase of the number of degrees of freedom as a function of R/?. Fortunately, when the geometry of the problem possesses symmetries, one may choose an appropriate basis in which the stiffness matrix of the ...

Modeling of a Nonlinear Hybrid Plasmonic Waveguide for Enhanced Surface Plasmon Polaritons Through Optical Parametric Amplification

D. Wang[1], T. Li[1], S. Wang[1], S. Zhu[1]
[1]Nanjing University, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China

Surface Plasmon Polaritions (SPPs), as electromagnetic waves localized at the surface of a metal, enjoy the unique properties to confine energy into sub-wavelength scale, which is beneficial for future photonic integration. However, the severe absorption caused by the metal influences the propagation distance greatly. Actually, SPPs loss can be compensated by optical parametric amplification in ...

Optimization of 3D Layered Metal-Dielectric Stacks (MDS) for Near-Field Fluorescence Imaging

[2]Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP), Vienna, Austria

Nano-structures consisting of layered metal-dielectric stacks (MDSs) can be designed to have evanescent transmission and reflection coefficients that oscillate as a function of transverse wavevector and frequency. However, these structures always suffer from the material losses and surface roughness that are detrimental to image reconstruction. As such, we propose an optimized planar anisotropic ...

Designing a Smart Skin with Fractal Geometry

S. Ni, C. Yang Koh, S. Kooi, and E. Thomas
Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies
Dept. of Materials Science and Eng.

Recently, the concepts of fractal geometry have been introduced into electromagnetic and plasmonic metamaterials. With their self-similarity, structures based on fractal geometry should exhibit multi-band character with high Q factors due to the scaling law. However, there exist few studies of phononic metamaterials having fractal geometry. COMSOL is used to investigate vector elastic and ...

Optimization of Micro-Structured Waveguides in Lithium Niobate (Z-Cut) - new

[1] Aston University, Birmingham, UK

We present an optimization procedure to improve the propagation properties of the depressed-cladding, buried micro-structured waveguides formed in a z-cut lithium niobate (LN) crystal by high repetition rate femtosecond (fs) laser writing. It is shown that the propagation wavelength for which the confinement losses of ordinary (O) and extraordinary ordinary (E) polarizations are below 1 dB/cm ...
