Three-Dimensional Simulation of Signal Generation in Wide-Bandgap Semiconductor Radiation Detectors

J. E. Toney[1]
[1]Pennsylvania State University Electro-Optics Center, Freeport, Pennsylvania, USA

We demonstrate the use of Comsol Multiphysics with Matlab to model signal generation in wide-bandgap semiconductor radiation detectors. A quasi-hemispherical detector design is compared with a simple, planar detector. Results show that the quasi-hemispherical design can simply and effectively compensate for the poor hole transport of most compound semiconductor materials.

Optimal Design of Linear Motor Based on the Simulation of COMSOL Multiphysics

X. Chen
PAL University of Science and Technology, China

Linear motor has a lot of applications, such as magnetic levitation train, electromagnetic weapons. It is a very important research significance. We established a three-dimensional model of linear motor to calculate the magnetic field lines and flux density distribution, and got the electromagnetic force too. We compared the results of simulation using COMSOL and experiment under different ...

Numerical Modeling of Falling Aluminum Particle Oxidation in Air

A. Davidy
Israel Military Industry, Ramat-Hasharon, Israel

Because of its high enthalpy of combustion, aluminum has been added to energetic materials. In this paper, a two dimension thermal model is developed and assessed to describe the interrelated processes of Aluminum particle oxidation by using the software COMSOL Multiphysics. The thermal model consists of thermal radiation, forced convection and thermal conduction and oxygen diffusion. It is ...

Investigating the Influence of Dynamic Jet Shapes on the Jet Electrochemical Machining Process

Electrochemical Machining is a potential procedure for micro manufacturing technology. Especially the absence of machining forces makes it advantageous for processing metals with high hardness and for the generation of complicated geometries. Applying a closed electrolytic free jet (Jet Electrochemical Machining - Jet-ECM) the electric current is restricted to a limited area. That allows working ...

Formation of Porosities During Spot Laser Welding of Tantalum

C. Touvrey[1], and P. Namy[2]
[1]CEA Valduc, France
[2]SIMTEC, France

The aim of the study is to predict the formation of porosities in the case of spot laser welding of tantalum. During the interaction, a deep and narrow cavity, called the keyhole, is generated. At the end of the interaction, surface tension provokes the collapse of the keyhole. Gas bubble can then be trapped into the melting pool, and give birth to residual porosities, according to the ...

Matching 4D Porous Media Fluid Flow GeoPET Data With COMSOL Multiphysics Simulation Results

J. Lippmann-Pipke, J. Kulenkampff, G. Marion, and M. Richter
Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden
Rossendorf, Institut of Radiochemistry
Research Site Leipzig
Reactive Transport Division
Leipzig, Germany

We apply COMSOL Multiphysics for reproducing our experimental observations of fluid flow and transport processes in geological media. Our experimental GeoEPT-method allows the 4D monitoring of transport processes in geological material on laboratory scale. Explicitly we import “realistic structures” from geologic samples scanned by means of computer tomography (CT) as stl-files into COMSOL ...

Multiphysics Modeling of Nanoparticle Detection - Current Status and Collaboration Sought

D. Krizaj[1], I. Iskra[2], Z. Topcagic[1], and M. Remskar[2]
[1]University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Ljubljana, Slovenia
[2]Institut Jozef Stefan, Ljubljana, Slovenia

We are developing nanoparticle detector for airborn particles. The detection principle is based on condensation of nanoparticles forming micron sized water droplets and detection of the droplets by a capacitive type nanodetector. We have successfully performed some experimental evaluations of the detection principle and are in the stage of optimization of several parts of the system. As ...

Xylophone Bar Magnetometry and Inertial-grade MEMS Optimisation: a Multiphysics Approach

H. T. D. Grigg, and B. J. Gallacher
Microsystems Group
Newcastle University
Newcastle upon Tyne
Tyne and Wear, UK

This paper presents ongoing research aimed at development of a MEMS magnetometer capable of nanoTesla sensitivity. Such a device would pave the way for inertial-grade MEMS IMUs. A resonant sensor is proposed, based on a Xylophone Bar sense element, and is analysed both directly and via COMSOL. Mode shapes and frequencies are found as functions of geometric parameters, and the results used ...

A Method for Efficient Calculation of Diffusion and Reactions of Lipophilic Compounds in Complex Cell Geometry

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 ...
