A number of medical and research applications require implantable devices to locally stimulate internal organs and communicate the internal vital signals to the outer world. Wireless power transfer (WPT) technique is used to supply power to these devices. The power is transferred wirelessly from a stationary primary coil to a movable secondary coil. The secondary device is implanted in a small ...

Probing ultrafast processes over subpicosecond and picosecond time scales provides fundamental insight into the nature of materials. We have experimentally demonstrated terahertz (THz)-pulse-induced tunneling in a scanning tunneling microscope (THz-STM) to image surfaces with simultaneous nanometer spatial resolution and subpicosecond time resolution . However, the exact mechanism by which ...

We have used COMSOL Multiphysics® software to design a micropipette for single -cell gene expression profiling. The micropipette design allows us to insert it into a single-cell to extract genes through dielectrophoresis. As dielectriphoretic force depends on the applied electric field (E) and its gradient (∇E^2), we have successfully used COMSOL to calculate E and ∇E^2 in the vicinity of the ...

Human body communications (HBC) uses the human body as a transmission medium to connect sensors and actuators in, on or in close proximity to the human body. The HBC approach offers tremendous potential for the design and implementation of emerging personalized healthcare systems, as well as security, and multimedia communications applications . Currently two HBC mechanisms have been ...

GalFeNol is a new Giant Magnetostrictive Material that can be used in energy harvesting especially in vibration reduction applications, thanks to the Joule and Villari effects. A 3D-model of GalFeNol rod is stressed by a time varying longitudinal force of 1000 N. The study has been carried out for two shapes, a solid and hollow cylinder . For both the shapes, physical dimensions (inner and outer ...

Electromigration induced failure is one of the main reliability issues for the microelectronics industry. The continuous scaling of the interconnect dimensions leads to higher operating current densities and temperatures, which accentuates the electromigration failure. As a consequence, electromigration still poses challenges for the development of the new technological nodes. Electromigration ...

INTRODUCTION: Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a broadly used research technique that exploits the magnetic properties of atomic nuclei with non-zero spin in order to determine the physical/chemical properties of the molecules in which they are contained. However, NMR has fundamental sensitivity limitations, as a consequence of the small energy difference between nuclear spin ...

The objective of this study is to assess polymeric insulators subjected to polluted environments. The study cases were conducted on polymeric insulators of 500 kV lines. All analyses were carried out with computer simulations, employing the software COMSOL Multiphysics® to calculate the voltage distribution on the surface of the insulators with deposits of pollution layers. Pollution in the ...
