Understanding the Drug Reaction Kinetics of Nerve Guides via Modeling

May 17, 2019

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.

Analyzing an Arterial Self-Expanding Stent with COMSOL Multiphysics®

February 6, 2019

Interested in bioengineering? Read this overview of a self-expanding arterial stent modeled in COMSOL Multiphysics® with an implemented shape memory alloy material.

Keynote Video: Designing Improved Heart Pumps with Simulation

December 5, 2018

Abbott Laboratories designed “the most complex machine ever implanted into a human being” — an LVAD for heart failure patients — using multiphysics modeling. The result? Saved lives.

Studying Presbyopia with an Optomechanical Model of the Human Eye

October 24, 2018

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.

Seeing Through Solids: Discovery and Applications of Photoacoustics

August 30, 2018

The field of photoacoustics started with Alexander Graham Bell and some sunlight. Now, photoacoustic imaging is used for nearly anything involving generating images of opaque material samples.

Optimizing ISFET Designs with Multiphysics Simulation

July 2, 2018

Ion-sensitive field-effect transistors (ISFETs) measure pH levels for soil analysis, the production of dairy products, and more. Multiphysics simulation can help us optimize these devices.

Modeling a MOS Capacitor with the Semiconductor Module

June 20, 2018

MOS capacitors (MOSCAPs) contain 3 main parts: a semiconductor body or substrate, an insulator film, and a metal electrode (or gate). You can use the Semiconductor Module to model MOSCAP designs.

What Is the Doppler Effect?

May 29, 2018

A siren passes by and you hear a change in pitch. A bug swims across a puddle, causing ripples on the surface. A star in the sky has a reddish hue. These are all examples of the Doppler effect.
