One of the most promising categories of semiconductor-based sensors is organic electrochemical transistor (OECT), which consists of three electrodes (Source, Drain and Gate) and two active layers: electrolyte and conductive polymer. Despite the fact that OECT attracts a lot of attention in the last years, appropriate physical and chemical coupled models to describe precisely the interaction ...

Analysis of Geometrical Aspects of a Kelvin Probe

I. Kuehne [1], S. Ciba [1], A. Frey [2],
[1] Heilbronn University, Kuenzelsau, Germany
[2] University of Applied Sciences, Augsburg, Germany

The presented analysis investigates the capacitance characteristic of a Kelvin probe regarding the geometrical transition from a movable electrode plate to a narrow tip. Moreover, predictions can be done concerning optimum geometry, sensitivity and suitable electrical measurement circuitry. A further aim of this study is to provide optimal tip geometries for different sized Kelvin probes. This ...

Molecular Hydrogen Tracking in an Electrolytic Polishing Process

L. M. A. Ferreira [1],
[1] CERN, Geneva, Switzerland

In a water based electrolytic polishing process, the formation of molecular hydrogen at the cathode is unavoidable and it can contribute to the formation of surface defects at the anode side. This paper presents the work to model and simulate the molecular hydrogen flow inside radio frequency cavity geometries and compares it with the presence, type and relative position of certain defects in ...

[2] Univ. Utrecht, Utrecht, Netherlands

A model is presented for heat rejection in the subsurface. Geometries of different dimension are coupled by linear and general extrusions. In that way it is possible to deal with multi-scale physical set-up. An example shows the high influence of groundwater flow.

Simulation Analysis of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) of Enclosures

[1]Fronius International GmbH, Research & Development, Wels-Thalheim, Austria

The paper on EMC Simulation Analysis of Enclosures demonstrates a simulation method to analyze the shielding effectiveness of enclosures. From the early development stage on it is possible to analyze the effect of electromagnetic waves on shielding panels. Different types of openings have been virtually measured in a test chamber. Therefore the full Maxwell equations have been solved in the ...

Numerical Simulation of Kinetic Interface Sensitive Tracer in Experiment with COMSOL Multiphysics® Software

[1] University of Goettingen, Goettingen, Lower Saxony, Germany
[2] Comsol Multiphysics GmbH, Goettingen, Lower Saxony, Germany

The kinetic interface-sensitive tracers (KIS tracers) are used to give a partial picture of the spreading, mixing and plume migration of supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) in the deep saline aquifer by estimating the interfacial areas between scCO2 and brine during the injection of scCO2. To get a better understanding of the KIS tracer reaction and transport processes in the two-phase flow ...

Transdermal Drug Delivery with Permeation Enhancer

A. Kermani [1], N. Elabbasi [1]
[1] Veryst Engineering, Needham, MA, USA

Transdermal drug delivery (TDD) is used to deliver drugs through the skin as an alternative to oral, intravascular, and subcutaneous routes. While there are many advantages to TDD, skin is a very effective barrier and provides resistance to drug delivery. To improve drug delivery through the skin, permeation enhancers are used. We developed an axisymmetric COMSOL Multiphysics® software model ...

Auto assembled Ag-ZnO [1] star shaped nanostructures depicted in figure 1, presents their natural electromagnetic resonance at 60 THz. In this work we present that is possible to change this value by covering it with a variable in thickness layer of gold. The analysis is performed by numerical simulations using COMSOL Multiphysics® software.

Relativistic Quantum Mechanics Applications Using the Time Independent Dirac Equation in COMSOL Multiphysics® Software

A. J. Kalinowski [1],
[1] Consultant, East Lyme, CT, USA

The paper illustrates the use of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software (via the “Coefficient-Form PDE” option) for obtaining the relativistic quantum mechanics wave function ψm(x,y,ω), m=1,4 as a solution to the time independent Dirac equations. Once having ψm(x,y,ω), it can be used to compute the probability density ρ′=Σ|ψm|^2 of a particle being at a specific point within the spatial field under ...

Secondary Flow of Liquid-liquid Two-Phase Fluids in a Pipe Bend

[3] Department of Engineering Technology, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, USA

As the flow passed through the pipe, and entered the bend, various vortical structures appear, meaning that there is a secondary flow emerging. Also while the flow is in the bend gravity forces affect distinctively its behavior as long as the centrifugal force is not greater. From this study, it appears that the fluid behavior on the pipe bend is strongly related to gravitational and ...
