Magnetic Liquids for Lab-on-a-chip and Rapid Diagnostics Applications

H. Köser
Yale University

In this presentation we outline our recent work on Magnetic Liquids, and the great number of application areas these are used. Ferrofluids are nanometer sized magnetic particles, covered by a surfactant, suspended in a carrier medium compatible with the surfactant material. Ferrofluids are applicable to a great and ever increasing number of application areas, such as: • Liquid Seals and ...

Lecturer
Faculty of Applied Science
MARA Technology University
Malaysia

In this presentation, a 1.31/1.55μm wavelength division multiplexer (WDM) based on a 1-D linear array photonic band gap (PBG) structure interconnected with an input/output 2-D PBG array is presented. The linear array coupler parameters were obtained using eigen-mode expansion (EME) aided by optimization techniques based on global and local simplex search algorithm. The design is verified ...

Analysis of Heat Transfer and Phase Change in Laser-Assisted Direct Imprinting Processes

F. K. Chung, Y. L. Wang, C. H. Chen
Department of Mold and Die Engineering, National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences, Kaohsiung , Taiwan

In this study, a model cast in COMSOL Multiphysics has been developed for the analysis of heat transfer and phase change during laser-assisted direct imprinting processes. The features of this model include the employment of temperature-dependent thermal properties, the use of equivalent specific heat for the treatment of latent heat of fusion, automatically switching the thermal contact ...

Optimum Design of Dual-modality Sensing Electrode Array

W. Huaxiang, W. Jing, H. Li, and J. Weiwei
School of Electrical Engineering & Automation, Tianjin University, Tianjin, Taiwan

Sensing electrodes array model of 3-Dimensional ERT/ ECT dual modality is established by using the software COMSOL. According to the uniformity of sensitivity field distribution, the correlation coefficient and the reconstructed image space resolution, the ECT/ERT dual modality sensing electrode arrays are optimized. Experimental results show that the optimized sensing electrode array of the ...

3LETI, CEA, Grenoble, France

We present results of simulations of a thin liquid film flowing down an inclined plane. Within the lubrication approximation, and assuming complete wetting, the film height is the solution of a time-dependent non-linear fourth order partial differential equation, which is solved using COMSOL.Appropriate initial and boundary conditions are proposed and the influence of the height of the precursor ...

Induction Heating of Samples in Vacuum Systems

A. Della Savia
SAES Getters Group, Lainate, Italy

Getter materials need to be activated in a vacuum system, where induction heating is one of the fastest processes. In this case, eddy currents generated by high frequency AC in a coil surrounding a bulb heat the materials.The temperature profile inside these items depends on geometry configurations, along with the coupling of the samples and material properties.In this article we analyze the ...

Numerical Simulation of a Dezincification Process Controlled by Electromagnetic Fields

S. Letout1, J. C. Tissier2 , G. Cognet1, Y. Fautrelle1, and Y. Du Terrail Couvat1
