Analyzing Topology Optimization of a Photoacoustic Spectroscopy Cell
Signals generated via photoacoustic spectroscopy are often weak and difficult to detect. Acoustic cells can be used to amplify the signal, but they need to be designed with sensitivity in mind.
Happy Birthday, Esther M. Conwell
Esther M. Conwell’s list of accolades is almost as long as her list of accomplishments in semiconductor research. Just as impressive, this physicist inspired a new generation of STEM learners.
4 Methods to Account for Radiation in Participating Media
The discrete ordinates method, P1 approximation, Rosseland approximation, or the Beer–Lambert law: Which should you use to analyze heat transfer in participating media?
Understanding the Drug Reaction Kinetics of Nerve Guides via Modeling
Ever had a pinched nerve? Nerve guides repair this type of damaged nerve cell tissue. To design safe and reliable nerve guides, we can use simulation to understand their drug reaction kinetics.
Electrode Balancing of a Lithium-Ion Battery with COMSOL®
Electrode balancing is an important consideration for battery cell engineers. Get an overview and mathematical framework of this phenomenon and learn how to analyze it in a lithium-ion battery.
Evaluating the Impact of Bearing Misalignment on Rotor Vibration
Bearings are found in devices ranging from MEMS and turbines to electric motors and even ships. How we account for a bearing’s misalignment (and the resulting rotor vibration) depends on its use.
How to Use Circular Ports in the RF Module
Degeneracy in circular ports leads to uncertainty in the mode field orientation. Not so with the Circular Port Reference Axis feature, which lets you define field orientations on port boundaries.
Speeding Up DNA Separation in a Microchannel via Simulation
DNA separation takes a long time using traditional methods. Now, researchers from the Missouri University of Science and Technology have found a faster way to get the job done.
