Inst. für Physik, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Germany

Glass containing nanoparticles is a promising material for various photonic applications due to the unique optical properties mainly resulting from the strong surface plasmon resonance (SPR) of the silver nanoparticles. The characteristics of the resonance can be modified by varying size, shape and concentration of the particles. A finite element method (FEM) implemented in the software COMSOL ...

Influence of chiral objects on spontaneous emission of atoms and molecules is under attention nowadays. The problem of interaction of chiral molecules with one [1] or two chiral [2] spheres was solved analytically recently by our group. The analytical results however are very difficult and needed to be calculated carefully. We modify the RF Module of COMSOL Multiphysics® in order to simulate ...

COMSOL Multiphysics® Investigation of Radiative and Nonradiative Channels of Quantum Emitter Fluorescence near Hyperbolic Metamaterial

Effective control over single atom emission might lead to major breakthrough in the field of nanotechnology. It is believed that use of hyperbolic metamaterials (HMM) can be helpful. COMSOL Multiphysics® was used to model interaction of electric dipole with effective HMM and calculate emission rate of dipole in comparison to that value in the absence of metamaterial. Dielectric nanoantennas of ...

Detecting light emitted by fluorescent molecules with resolution down to single photon is an important problem in various fields of sciences and applications, such as solid-state physics, quantum information processing and medicine. The detection probability can be improved via enhancement of excitation and emission. Enhancement both of these processes can be reached by localized surface plasmon ...

Simulations of Rolled-up Optical Microcavities Using COMSOL Multiphysics® Software

Shilong Li [1],
[1] Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics (SITP), Shanghai, China

By using a combination of top-down and bottom-up strategies (see Fig. 1), rolled-up optical microcavities have gained considerable attention owing to their excellent customizability [1]. For example, the resonant spectrum of a rolled-up optical microcavity is well defined by simply tailoring the rolling length before it rolls [2], as shown in Fig. 2. In order to have a good visualization for the ...

The electromagnetic fields have a great influence on the behavior of all the living systems. The human body itself is a source of naturally generated electric and magnetic fields. When external signals of comparable strength flows through the human body; the nature of changes that such signals could induce in natural electrochemical processes and voltage is a subject of interest and of ...

Using COMSOL to Solve for Currents along a Thin-Wire Antenna Excited by a Lumped Source

A. Shoory, A. Smorgonskiy, and F. Vega
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) group, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland

In this paper, we will present simulation results obtained using COMSOL RF module for the current along a wire antenna in both frequency and time domains. The structure is excited through a lumped (voltage or current) source at its center. For the frequency domain simulations we compare the results with the Numerical Electromagnetics Code (NEC-4) and for the time domain results we compare them ...

Weak Formulations for Calculating Spin Wave Dispersion Relation in Magnonic Crystals

M. Mruczkiewicz[1]
[1]Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland

We study the spin wave excitation (coherent precession of magnetic moments) in periodically arranged magnetic stripes, i.e., in one-dimensional magnonic crystal (MC). Two approaches have been implemented. We have defined a structure that dispersion relation can be obtained using both approaches and compared them. In general, the approach I has to be used for MCs where the exchange interactions ...

Coupled RF Thermal Analysis of High Power Couplers for Accelerator Cavities

[1]Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Trombay, Mumbai, India

High-power couplers working at 350 MHz for particle accelerator cavities are presently under development in the LEHIPA project at BARC. It is important to analyze RF losses on conducting surfaces and resulting thermal profiles. COMSOL Multiphysics® is used to study these coupled RF-thermal effects and estimate cooling requirements for these couplers. The RF loss on the copper conductors and ...

The measurement of dielectric constant at frequencies of 20 GHz or greater is important for specifying the optical properties of materials at millimeter wavelength. One method of measurement uses a resonant cavity containing a sample of the material, and relates the resonant frequency and quality factor of the resonance to the complex dielectric constant through electromagnetic simulation. ...
