Validating the Use of Boundary Elements for Magnetostatics Modeling
To validate the boundary element method (BEM) as a viable alternative to FEM for magnetostatics modeling, you can try a 3-part tutorial series of electromagnetic force calculations.
Simulating the Tunneling Current Across a Graded Heterojunction
Interested in semiconductor design? Get an intro to the theory behind quantum tunneling as well as a demonstration of simulating the tunneling current across a graded heterojunction.
Evaluating Transformer Designs with Electromagnetics Simulation
Transformers are used to increase, decrease, and isolate voltage in many different types of devices. EM simulation can be used to evaluate a transformer design, no matter its purpose.
Studying Presbyopia with an Optomechanical Model of the Human Eye
You have to see this multiphysics simulation research: To help combat the effects of presbyopia in aging eyes, Kejako built a 3D optomechanical model of a full human eye.

Protecting Aerospace Devices via an Ion-Material Interaction Benchmark
In outer space and other harsh radiation environments, high-energy ions and protons pierce materials and affect nearby electronic systems. Known as a single-event effect (SEE), the particle radiation can lead to soft or hard errors in devices. Since just one hard error puts a space mission at risk, aerospace engineers must make sure that all critical electronic devices can withstand an SEE. To gain a better understanding of this phenomenon, they can accurately analyze the ion-material interaction using simulation.
Self-Consistent Schrödinger-Poisson Results for a Nanowire Benchmark
This benchmark model of a GaAs nanowire validates the Schrödinger-Poisson Equation multiphysics interface, which is useful for modeling systems with quantum-confined charge carriers.
