It was suggested long ago that a theoretical model of a near-cathode region in a DC glow discharge admits multiple steady-state solutions describing different modes of currrent transfer. Even the most simple self-consistent models should admit such multiple solutions. In the present work, these solutions have been calculated for the first time with COMSOL Multiphysics.

Most probably Gauss\'s law is considered as the first \"electromagnetic\" concept for early undergraduate physics and electromagnetic courses. In early study year, teaching Gauss’s law is usually performed based on two main components; 1) The use of simple symmetrical charge distributions where a correct expectation of the spatial behavior of the electric flux density is possible and 2) The use ...

Thermally conducting but electrically insulating materials are needed for heat-sink LED lighting applications. We report on a cost effective and innovative method based on creating core-shell nanoparticles in polymer with aluminum (Al) nanoparticles as the high thermal conductivity core and ultrathin aluminum oxide (Al?O?) as a capping shell. The solid oxide shell around the Al core prevents ...

Dielectrophoresis (or DEP) has been exploited for various micro and nano fluidics applications like patterning, sorting and separation. However, there are several commonly neglected issues in quantifying DEP forces. Such negligence could potentially lead to wrong DEP force predictions and estimates, posing difficulties in correlating experimental observations with theories. Among the commonly ...

ELENA is a small cooler decelerator ring at CERN which will be built to increase substantially the number of usable antiprotons delivered to experiments for studies with antihydrogen and antiprotonic nuclei. COMSOL Multiphysics® software has been used to completely model the ELENA electron cooling device in 3D. We have taken advantage of the different physics-based modules of COMSOL ...

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 ...

Electrorefining is an electrolytic process for obtaining high purity metal. In this process the impure metal is made anode and the high purity metal is deposited on cathode. Electrorefining is a key step in pyrochemical reprocessing of spent fuel from metal fuel fast reactors. Development of an electrorefining cell, in which processing of 10 kg of simulated spent fuel will be demonstrated, is ...

Gaseous exhaust of different industries contains dust particles of different chemical precipitates that are harmful for the environment. Electrostatic Precipitators are very often used in industries like power plant to filter their gaseous exhaust and to prevent the atmosphere to being polluted. Electrostatic Precipitators are very efficient in dust particle collection from the flue gas. ...

The accurate estimate of values of electromagnetic parameters are essential to determine the final circuit speeds and functionality for designing of high-performance integrated circuits and integrated circuits packaging. In this paper, a new quasi-TEM capacitance and inductance analysis of multiconductor multilayer interconnects is successfully demonstrated using the finite element method (FEM) ...

Electromagnetic sounding measurements utilize magnetic induction to constrain the interior geophysical properties of planetary bodies. Under some conditions, the Earth’s moon can be approximated by the response of a conducting sphere in a vacuum. Transient magnetic fields originating from the sun can interact directly with the moon, producing eddy currents that generate an induced magnetic ...
