Microplasmas at atmospheric pressure are required in many applications, where treatments in normal ambient, with spatial resolution, are important. The interest on such miniaturized sources has increased due to the availability of a new generation of microwave sources based on high power GaN transistors. The present work deals with a simulation of the plasma formation after the application of ...

It is commonly recognized that careful thermal design of electronic equipments represents an unavoidable pre-production step in order to ensure reliability and performance of those components during their functioning. This paper mainly concerns a comparison between experimental and numerical results obtained in studying thermal dissipation in natural and mixed convection conditions for RAM ...

This paper proposes the design of a 3-Degree of Freedom(DoF) motor based on surface acoustic waves in elastic solids. The rotor is propelled by wave fields, for linear and rotational motion respectively, in the stator, that can be steered by the driving signal of the piezoelectric actuators, which are placed on an elastic plate. The next considerations concern the feasibility of the proposed ...

In this paper, we consider the finite element modeling of multilayer transmission lines for high-speed digital interconnects. Using COMSOL we mainly focused on the modeling of the transmission structures with both cases of symmetric and asymmetric geometries. We specifically designed asymmetric coupled microstrips and four-line symmetric coupled microstrips with a two-layer substrate. We ...

Landmines are an open problem in many countries of the world. They cause injuriesand death and no technique proposed to date guarantees fast and 100% reliable detection alone. To this purpose, at the Humanitarian Demining Laboratory of “La Sapienza” University of Rome, several solutions are being studied. In this paper, numerical simulations of a prototype thermal detection system are reported, ...

We are developing nanoparticle detector for airborn particles. The detection principle is based on condensation of nanoparticles forming micron sized water droplets and detection of the droplets by a capacitive type nanodetector. We have successfully performed some experimental evaluations of the detection principle and are in the stage of optimization of several parts of the system. As ...

Curved cone corrugated ground plane conical antenna has been designed and analyzed using Finite Element Method. In this paper, we introduce a novel Curved cone corrugated ground plane conical antenna for ultra-wideband (UWB) applications. The antenna is composed of curved cone with narrow corrugation on finite ground plane and fed by a 50? coaxial cable. The designed antenna operates over ...

Neural disorders like epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease have become a major area of concern because of their complexity and the huge number of occurrences. At present, most of the treatments are based on drugs and external nerve stimulation demanding critical care. This study aims at the design and simulation of an implantable micro-electrode which can lead to better ...
