The objective of this paper is to design a 3D Gas Sensor for sensing Hydrogen gas and to increase the conductivity at nano level. In this novel design, nanorods act as the sensing layer. The sensitivity towards gas adsorption is found to be increased due to its high surface to volume ratio. The total displacement and voltage on intermediate layer after gas adsorption will be changing by varying ...

In this work, we have taken a model which is simulated using COMSOL Multiphysics®. It was used as a tool to design, characterize and to simulate an example which is nanofibers based piezoelectric energy generators. The results are compared with other available sources but using with another materials. After applying a pressure on the top of surface of nanogenerator, the output parameters ...

In this paper, a free membrane is used as a receiver to increase the capacitance and therefore the resolution of the flow meter. For the current application, from the wavelength of sound wave in soft tissue (c= 1540 m/s) the resolution was calculated to be 0.48 mm. This gives the first Eigen frequency of the capacitive structure according to which the poly silicon membrane was designed. After ...

A Voltage Controlled Resistor (VCR) is simulated by replacing the semiconductor channel of a MOSFET device by graphite and embedding Si nanoparticles near the insulator-channel interface. The change in output drain current is found to depend on the thickness and relative permittivity of the insulator film together with the loading of Si nanoparticles. A material with higher dielectric ...

MEMS is the leading technology which combines both electronic and mechanical devices on a single microchip. Tracing the position of the object is an important problem in engineering. This can be addressed by Gyroscopes. These sensors are used to find orientation and angular velocity. This paper focuses on 3D MEMS Piezoelectric Gyroscope. COMSOL Multiphysics® is used for designing and ...

The analyzed MEMS oscillator is composed by a spring (beam) supported mass that needs to vibrate with a high Q-factor in the horizontal plane. Nevertheless, the transverse motion needs to be highly damped (low Q-factor). The purpose of the work was to explore different system configurations to determine the most suitable one for the scope of the device. Different parameters were varied to sweep ...

COMSOL Multiphysics was used to solve a phonon Boltzmann transport equation (BTE) for nanoscale heat transport problems. One dimensional steady-state and transient BTE problems were successfully solved based on finite element and discrete ordinate methods for spatial and angular discretizations, respectively, by utilizing the built-in feature of the COMSOL, Coefficient Form of PDE.

This article describes the design of MEMS based cantilever structure intended for determination of blood group and it is compared with manual method. Cantilever structure design has a sensing layer and when a blood sample comes in contact with this, results in coagulation. The surface tension in turn occurs due to chemical and biological reactions of antigen and antibodies resulting in ...
