We present a procedure to obtain reliable EM responses for a SIW interconnect with microstrip line transitions. The procedure focuses on two COMSOL® configuration settings: meshing size and simulation bounding box. Once both are properly configured, the implemented structure is tested by perturbing the simulation bounding box to ensure it has no effect on the EM responses.

The radiation force effects on the surface displacement can be calculated by solving the Navier-Stokes equation with appropriated boundary conditions. The surface deformation can be described by the radiation pressure as well as those forces due to gravity and surface tension. We used the photomechanical mirror (PM) method to measure the time-evolution of the nanometer deformation generated on ...

Für intensive Strahlungsquellen im Spektralbereich von Vakuumultraviolett (VUV, 10 -200 nm) über extremes Ultraviolett (XUV, 1 – 10 nm) bis in den Bereich der weichen Röntgenstrahlung (SXR, 0,1 – 1 nm) (siehe Abbildung 1) besteht in Forschung und Industrie ein hoher Bedarf, der in der Zukunft noch deutlich wachsen wird. Insbesondere im Bereich der Röntgenlithographie zur Herstellung von ...

In the inspection of steel products with respect to flaws a magnetic flux leakage (MFL) test procedure can be applied. In this procedure a “horseshoe” shaped yoke is used, whose legs are wrapped with coils through which an alternate current with a high frequency (3 kHz) is flowing. Hereby a thin magnetic field is induced near the surface of the test object which leaks from the material if a ...

In the frame of an ESA project, CSEM in collaboration with other partners has developed an innovative Attitude Orbit Control System concept that relies on a Reaction Sphere. We propose to use one unique magnetic bearing Reaction Sphere whose spin axis and angular velocity can be positioned by dedicated control. The design is based on a 3-D permanent magnet motor obtained with a multi pole rotor ...

The understanding of pH-sensitive hydrogel swelling response in different buffer environmental condition is essential for its use in different practical applications. This necessitates its simulation in steady state and transient conditions. This paper mainly deals with the details of the numerical simulation performed by developing coupled formulation of chemo-electro-mechanical behavior of the ...

After spinal cord injury (SCI) the functions of the lower urinary tract are often disrupted and may have fatal consequences for the patient. It has been shown that using a transrectal probe developed by Craggs et al., through conditional transrectal stimulation of pudendal nerve, it is possible to treat hyperreflexia in some of the SCI patients. To maximise the efficacy of this type of ...

Time-lapse electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) method provides a non-invasive way to monitor subtle sub-surface changes caused by water flow such as in an infiltration test. Problems arise when the inversion models contain artifacts due to measurement errors, rapid change in soil electrical property during measurement time, etc. A new approach was developed by Kim et al. (2004) and (2009) ...

The problem under investigation is electrical scale-up of a generic metallurgical process for primary metal production through resistive heating of slag by electric current, typically supplied by an AC three-phase system. Maxwell’s equations are analyzed revealing that the properties of the solution is determined by the parameter (L/δ)^2, where L is the linear size of the system and δ is the ...

Electrostatically excited plasma waves can induce a “plasma wind” in the surrounding media or air. The lifted object has a shape of a flying saucer, just for better illustration. A travelling plasma wave propulsion requires a pre-ionized media around the surface and a travelling electrostatic field. A simplified plasma model was used to set up an EFD (electro fluid dynamic) approach into a ...
