Modeling a Scatterer Near an Optical Waveguide

August 25, 2020

In the real world, most structures are more complex than a 2D dielectric slab. However, if you’re designing photonic structures, you can learn a lot about wave optics modeling from this example.

Modeling Waveguides that Support Multiple Modes 

August 12, 2020

2 ways you can model a waveguide that supports multiple modes: add a PML that can be used to absorb any modes, or explicitly add ports for each possible mode.

2 Video Discussions on Multiphysics Simulation of Optics and Photonics

John Wallace, senior editor at Laser Focus World, and Chris Boucher, technical product manager at COMSOL, discuss the use of multiphysics simulation in the optics R&D community. Take a look…

Computational Electromagnetics Modeling: Which Module to Use?

July 28, 2020

If you work with a particular electromagnetic device or application area, you might be wondering which module in the COMSOL product suite is right for you. Keep reading for a comprehensive intro.

Video Lecture Series: Modeling Electromagnetic Coils in COMSOL®

July 16, 2020

Get an overview of our video lecture series on modeling coils using COMSOL Multiphysics and the AC/DC Module, from setting up a coil model to analyzing electromagnetic heating and more.

Using 3D Models to Investigate Inductive Effects in a Submarine Cable

July 9, 2020

It takes a modern desktop computer ~30 minutes to compute a 3D cable model with twisted magnetic armor. Consequently, 3D cable models are replacing empirical models in the power cable industry.

Modeling Cables in COMSOL Multiphysics®: 8-Part Tutorial Series

July 8, 2020

Your roadmap to modeling cables with the AC/DC Module and COMSOL Multiphysics®: An 8-part tutorial series that starts with the basics and gradually adds complexity and multiple physics.

Modeling Heat Transfer in Thin Layers via Layered Material Technology
