The flexibility of COMSOL Multiphysics enables a variety of computational approaches to be applied towards solving electromagnetic problems across the whole spectrum. I will describe techniques for studying resonant electromagnetic interactions in a range of structures, including materials with negative electric permittivity (metals at optical frequencies), and small microwave resonators and ...

In high-speed digital design, strong electromagnetic coupling exists between adjacent transmission lines. This manifests itself in the form of crosstalk voltage induced on either line. Crosstalk is modeled in terms of capacitance and inductance matrices which are extracted using COMSOL Multiphysics®. Further, trends of crosstalk are observed with variations in dielectric constant of substrate, ...

In microwave heating applications, the energy is introduced directly into the volume of the material and as consequence the quality of the process is highly dependent on the uniformity of the electromagnetic field distribution along it. That is, the non uniformity of the heating is a potential problem with serious consequences. Thermal runaway is the most critical, in materials with temperature ...

Industrial microwave ovens are widely used in agri-food and chemical applications. Resonant cavities are used to speed up chemical reactions and have the advantage to be small sized and efficient in terms of microwave distribution. These multimode cavities are considered as batch ovens where a small amount of products is treated. Rotating plates are added in the cavities to ensure a homogeneous ...

The ITER-ECE transmission lines consist of smooth-wall circular waveguides, including miter bends and other components. The performance of the TL is crucial to ensuring that the requirements for the diagnostic to measure the plasma parameters are met. COMSOL Multiphysics® has a finite element method with a built-in Eigenmode matrix solver. The accuracy of COMSOL solutions depends on the size of ...

Conventional heating of material wastes energy during heating due to inherent radiation, conduction and convection based heating mechanism. Alternate efficient heating methods are actively researched for improved efficiency. Radio frequency based electromagnetic heating is increasingly used for efficient heating in place of conventional heating. This requires coupling of electromagnetic and heat ...

Performance degradation of a superconducting RF cavity after quenching in an external magnetic field was calculated using COMSOL. This degradation is due to the increased resistance of a superconducting surface with trapped magnetic flux. The amount of the trapped flux depends on the size of the normally-conducting opening that develops in the superconducting wall of a cavity during quenching. ...
