Electric Field Assisted Capillarity (EFAC) is a novel technique for the fabrication of hollow polymer microstructures. It has advantages over current methods as it is a single step process. Hollow microstructures have many uses in industry from microchannels and microcapsules in BioMEMS to fibre-optical waveguides. It makes use of the dielectric properties of polymers combined with a heavily ...

When the production capacity of micro chemical plants is increased by numbering-up approach, it is important to realize the uniform flow distribution among the parallelized microreactors. In addition, a blocked microreactor needs to be identified as early as possible to achieve the stable long-term operation of micro chemical plants. In this research, a system that can detect a blocked reactor ...

This paper will give a short overview of use of COMSOL Multiphysics for analyzing ancient Greek and Roman catapults with the main focus on the energy storing torsion springs. Catapults have been known and used in the Greek and Roman world from around 399 BC and a fully standardized design for powerful torsion catapults emerged around 270 BC, based on one basic factor, the diameter of the torsion ...

In this paper, we use a COMSOL Multiphysics® model to demonstrate the potential use of polymer microring resonator structures for optical biosensing applications. When the refractive index of the area surrounding the microring resonator changes, there is a shift in the resonance wavelength that can be monitored. We present simulated results of the spectral response with different refractive ...

Standard approaches to reproduce the coupling of wave propagation and plasma transport inside a helicon plasma source rely on electromagnetic simulations coupled to either kinetic or particle-in-cell strategies to reproduce the plasma response. If the plasma density reach values higher than 10^17 m^-3, these approaches would result in a computational burden, therefore we have adopted a fluid ...
