The modeling of ferromagnetic materials is a challenging task of high industrial and academic impact. Thin film and granular systems form the basis of novel spintronic devices such as modern hard drives with a high data area storage density. In order to push the current limits even further and to design more efficient devices, a strong understanding of the governing dynamics is required. We ...

A general description of effects of toxic compounds in mammalian cells is facing several problems. Firstly, most toxic compounds are hydrophobic and partition phenomena strongly influence their behaviour. Secondly, cells display considerable heterogeneity regarding the presence, activity and distribution of enzymes participating in the metabolism of foreign compounds i.e. bioactivation ...

[3]Istituto Superiore C.T.I., Communications Department, Ministry of Economic Development, Rome, Italy

The scattering by a buried sphere in the frequency domain with the use of the Finite Element Method (FEM) implemented by COMSOL Multiphysics, is analyzed. A short-pulse is used as an excitation with the spectrum spanning from 50 MHz to 1 GHz. In order to validate our results, a comparison with data available in the literature is presented, in the simple case of a perfectly-conducting (PEC) ...

Microwave Inactivation of Bacteria Under Dynamic Heating Conditions in Solid Media

S. Curet[1], M. Mazen Hamoud-Agha[1]
[1]GEPEA, UMR 6144, CNRS, ONIRIS, Université de Nantes, Nantes, France

In this study, COMSOL®4.2a is used to model a microwave heating process in a TE10 rectangular waveguide. The sample consists of a small cylindrical Ca-alginate gel (D = 8 mm, H = 10 mm) inoculated with bacteria Escherichia Coli K12. The sample is placed along the microwave propagation direction into the waveguide. Maxwell’s equations and heat transfer are coupled to a microbial inactivation ...

Numerical Investigation of Non-Newtonian Laminar Flow in a Curved Tube with Insert

A. Kadyyrov[1]
[1]Research Center for Power Engineering Problems, KSC, RAS, Russia

Non-Newtonian laminar flows in curved circular tubes with inserts are investigated by computer simulations. 0.65% solution of NaCMC is considered. Three-dimensional incompressible Navier-Stokes equations are solved using COMSOL Multiphysics. Placements of inserts inside the curved tubes and their effects on the hydrodynamics of the flow are studied. Computations are carried out with various ...

Complex K-Bands Calculation for Plasmonic Crystal Slabs by Means of Weak Formulation of Helmholtz's Eigenvalue Equation

G. Parisi[1], P. Zilio[1], F. Romanato[1]
[1]University of Padova, Padova, Italy

We present a Finite Element Method (FEM) to calculate the complex valued k(?) dispersion curves of a photonic crystal slab in presence of both dispersive and lossy materials. In particular the method can be exploited to study plasmonic crystal slabs. We adopt Perfectly Matched Layers (PMLs) in order to truncate the open boundaries of the model, including their related anisotropic permittivity ...

Passive Microsensor Based on LC Resonators for Substance Identification

[1]Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia

A scheme for inductive wireless powering and readout of passive LC sensor is presented. The sensor’s inductor is designed as a planar square coil and is used as the power receiving component. The capacitor is connected directly to the inductor and it was designed as an interdigital capacitor. With a transmitting coil (coupling antenna), an electromagnetic field is generated which couples with ...

Modeling a Non-Flooding Hybrid Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell and Related Diffusion-Migration-Reaction Systems

[1]University of Delaware, Newark, DE, USA

Introduction: Understanding the mass and charge transport behavior of heterogeneous systems that include diffusion, migration, and reaction of ions is important in fuel cells, batteries, and other electrochemical applications. Here, a numerical model for charged species transport and reaction has been developed to simulate the electrochemical behavior of a novel type of “non-flooding” hybrid ...

Experimental Validation of Model of Electro-Chemical-Mechanical Planarization (ECMP) of Copper

[1]SC Solutions, Sunnyvale, CA, USA

This paper describes the development of a COMSOL model of Electro-Chemical-Mechanical Planarization (ECMP) that was validated with experimental data. ECMP is used for processing of semiconductor wafers. We developed a 2D model of flow of phosphoric acid solution (the electrolyte) between two parallel plates that focuses on the physics and electrochemistry in ECMP. The model includes steady-state ...

3-Dimensional Blood Cooling Model inside a Carotid Bifurcation

R. Sikorski[1], T. Merrill[1]
[1]Rowan University, Glassboro, NJ, USA

Stroke is caused by an interruption of brain blood supply and is one of the leading causes of death and disability. A mild reduction of 2-5°C in tissue temperature through hypothermia has shown reduced tissue infarct size, increased tissue recovery, and positive neurological effects. This paper seeks to predict the outlet blood temperature in the common carotid bifurcation branches. In our ...
