Studying Presbyopia with an Optomechanical Model of the Human Eye
You have to see this multiphysics simulation research: To help combat the effects of presbyopia in aging eyes, Kejako built a 3D optomechanical model of a full human eye.
Seeing Through Solids: Discovery and Applications of Photoacoustics
The field of photoacoustics started with Alexander Graham Bell and some sunlight. Now, photoacoustic imaging is used for nearly anything involving generating images of opaque material samples.
Optimizing ISFET Designs with Multiphysics Simulation
Ion-sensitive field-effect transistors (ISFETs) measure pH levels for soil analysis, the production of dairy products, and more. Multiphysics simulation can help us optimize these devices.
Modeling a MOS Capacitor with the Semiconductor Module
MOS capacitors (MOSCAPs) contain 3 main parts: a semiconductor body or substrate, an insulator film, and a metal electrode (or gate). You can use the Semiconductor Module to model MOSCAP designs.
What Is the Doppler Effect?
A siren passes by and you hear a change in pitch. A bug swims across a puddle, causing ripples on the surface. A star in the sky has a reddish hue. These are all examples of the Doppler effect.
The Elephants of Materials Science: SMAs Never Forget Their Shape
Learn about the history and use cases of shape memory alloys such as nitinol. You can also model the phase transformation of these unique materials in COMSOL Multiphysics®.
Modeling Fluid-Structure Interaction in a Heart Valve
The average human heart beats 100,000 times per day, but what if the person has cardiac issues? Modeling fluid-structure interaction in a heart valve can help researchers develop new treatments.
Smart(er) Healthcare: Designing RFID Tags for Biomedical Applications
Bioengineering meets RF simulation in this blog post about designing RFID systems that can be used for safe and optimized patient care.
