Modeling Confinement in Quantum Dot Solar Cells

J. Liu [1], M. Zubaer Hossain [1],
[1] Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Delaware, Newark, DE, USA

The efficiency of the first and second generations of solar cell has hardly seen dramatically increase over the years, in which most PV cells cannot use about 55% of the energy of sunlight because a single material can not capture the entire spectrum of sunlight. To achieve the objective ... Read More

[1] SIMTEC, Grenoble, France

Surface engineering is a key technology used in a wide range of sectors in industry. Among other techniques, it involves adding functionality to a surface. This can be performed by creating a specific topography to a surface using laser texturing. The objective of the work presented in ... Read More

Light-tissue Interaction Modeling Using COMSOL Multiphysics® for Multi-layered Soft Tissues

Vysakh V [1], Sujatha Narayanan Unni [1],
[1] Indian Institutes of Technology Madras, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India

Soft tissues are longest tissue structures found throughout a human body. It plays a vital role in connecting, providing support or surround other structures and organs of the body. Muscles, skin, tendons, ligaments, nerves, fibrous tissues, fat, blood vessels are commonly classified as ... Read More

Adaptive Mesh Refinement: Quantitative Computation of a Rising Bubble Using COMSOL Multiphysics®

T. Preney [1], P. Namy [1], J. Wheeler [1]
[1] SIMTEC, Grenoble, France

The mesh is a key component in numerical simulations as it represents the spatial discretization of the model geometry. To accurately measure the variation of the unknowns, a relevant mesh should have a high density of degrees of freedom in regions where the norm of the gradient of the ... Read More
