Introduction: In inductively coupled plasma (ICP) systems the inductive antenna is coupled to the excited plasma inside the low pressure gas reactor. A multi-ICP system can be used for increased area processing and provide additional variables for controlling the plasma. However, assembling the source from individual sources changes the symmetry of the system. Simulation of plasmas in ...

At the Fontys University of Applied Physics (The Netherlands) a plasma etcher has been acquired for educational purposes. The machine operates at low power up to 30 Watt and is driven with a magnetic coil at 13.56 MHz. The use of COMSOL Multiphysics software will be discussed to simulate the temperature and mass fractions of the activated and ionized atoms in the gas. The simulations will be ...

Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is a fingerprint spectroscopy whose sensitivity is down to single molecule level. The mechanism of SERS is mainly contributed to huge enhancement of local electric field, which originated from surface plasmon resonance of metal nanostructures. It is very important to exactly calculate the local enhancement in the electric field strength for right ...

We report the results of simulation showing light coupling in waveguides through prism coupling method. Prism coupling method of light coupling in waveguides is a dominant method adopted by photonic device fabricators. It is necessary to understand the effect various parameters on light coupling in such processes. We used industry standard PDE solver COMSOL Multiphysics to study and analyze the ...

Chiral SPPs can be generated by linearly polarized light incident at the end of a nanowire, exciting a coherent superposition of three specific nanowire waveguide modes. Chirality is preserved in the emitted photons, creating a subwavelength ¼ wave plate.

Recently it has been proved theoretically (Miñano et al, 2011) that the super-resolution up to ? /500 can be achieved using an ideal metallic Spherical Geodesic Waveguide (SGW). This SGW is as a theoretical design, in which the conductive walls are considered to be lossless conductors with zero thickness. In this paper, we study some key parameters that might influence the super resolution ...

In this study, a computational model is developed and solved using COMSOL Multiphysics software to estimate the lesion size during saline-infused RFA. Transport of saline is set up by modifying the Poisson equation and the convection-diffusion equation  under the Mathematics module. Heating during RFA is set up based on the Joule heating module. To describe the lesion size, the two-state cell ...

Radiofrequency (RF) tissue ablation is commonly used to treat medical conditions involving dysfunctional tissue especially in the heart, kidneys, lungs, bones, or liver. An electrode at the tip of a catheter delivers high frequency current (350-500 kHz) to the targeted tissue causing it to heat and then ablate without disturbing the electrical signals of the nervous system or heart, and with ...

Plasmonics is a new branch of the fascinating field of photonics and develops concepts to quench light beyond the diffraction limit and enhance electromagnetic fields. These enhancements occur in metals as localized surface plasmon polaritons (LSP) a coupling of the surface density oscillations of the electron gas to the incident light. With threedimensional nano-structures of coinage metals ...

The EM optimization of a coarsely discretized model of a microstrip band-pass filter implemented in COMSOL Multiphysics® was realized using two different model configurations. We presented a systematic methodology to find an appropriate 3D EM model configuration on a direct EM optimization of a low fidelity models. It was confirmed that the direct EM optimization of coarse models in COMSOL could ...
