Simulation Studies on Stress Generation and Volume Expansion due to Electrochemical Lithium Insertion in a Silicon Nanowire

G. Sikha, and J. Gordon
Applied Materials, Inc.
Santa Clara, CA

Silicon electrodes are presently being pursued as the potential negative electrode for lithium-ion batteries owing to its high gravimetric (mAh/g) and volumetric capacity (mAh/L) compared to the existing state of the art graphite electrode. Recent experimental studies have demonstrated ... Read More

Optimization of a High-Temperature High-Pressure Direct Wafer Bonding Process for III-V Semiconductors

R. Martin, J. Kozak, K. Anglin, and W. Goodhue
University of Massachusetts Lowell
Lowell, MA

Many optoelectronic devices utilize a heterojunction of a pair semiconducting materials including high-efficiency MEMS devices, solar cells, LEDs, and VCSELs. One fabrication technique which achieves such a device is direct wafer fusion. To optimize the process, COMSOL Multiphysics ... Read More

Near-Wellbore Physics of Non-Isothermal Flow Into a Wellbore and its Application to Hydrocarbon Production

J. Lowell
Schlumberger

John Lovell received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Delft University in 1993 as well as MA\'s in Mathematics from Oxford and Cornell. He is currently a Business Development Manager for Schlumberger. His numerical expertise includes the creation and application of finite element ... Read More

Kinetics of Zebrafish Dorsoventral Patterning

B. Jordan, and P. Müller
Harvard University
Cambridge, MA

The specification of cell types and morphogenesis of many biological systems are regulated by the concentrations of signalling molecules. Many systems employ a pair of secreted short-range activators and long-range inhibitors, and these are widely used to generate complex patterns during ... Read More

Making Cartograms and Using them for Data Acquisition

P. Mercure[1], and R. Haley[2]
[1]The Dow Chemical Company, Midland, MI
[2]ATM Research, Midland, MI

We demonstrate cartogram construction, where a geographical map is distorted to represent some measure, for example population, while trying to keep the shape of regions recognizable. We then apply this cartogram construction technique to optimize thermocouple locations. A heat ... Read More

Polymer Compositional Profile Controls By-Product Fate from Erodible Endovascular Scaffolds

T. Shazly, and J. Ferdous
Biomedical Eng., Mechanical Eng. Dept.
University of South Carolina
Columbia, SC

Erodible polymeric scaffolds can mitigate long-term risks associated with permanent implants currently used to treat ischemic artery disease. However, safe deployment of erodible scaffolds is predicated on understanding the interactions between evolved material by-products and local ... Read More

Time Domain Analysis of Eddy Currents in Saturating Magnetic Materials

S. Thompson
Applied Research Laboratory
Penn State University
State College, PA

Eddy current phenomena in conducting magnetic media are well understood, although the detailed behavior at high drive levels leading to magnetic saturation are not always well explained. This paper considers the example of an infinite cylindrical magnetic core with an external coil. ... Read More

Microwave Drying of Cellular Ceramic Substrates: A Conjugate Modeling Approach to Understand Surface Moisture Migration

A. Halder, and J. George
Corning, Inc.
Painted Post, NY

Microwave drying processes are critical components in the manufacture of cellular ceramic substrates and filters. The objective of this study is to develop a comprehensive model at a small scale and include all the possible physics that are important during microwave drying processes. ... Read More

Smoothing the Path to Simulation-Led Device Design

B. Pryor, and R. Pryor
Pryor Knowledge Systems
Bloomfield Hills, MI

Using modeling software such as COMSOL Multiphysics during the design phase, an approach called “simulation-led design”, allows ideas to be both inspired and validated by the use of simulations. Then, using simulations after the product is designed can shorten the prototype-testing ... Read More

Deriving Correction Factors for a Primary Standard for Radiation Dosimetry

R. Tosh, and H. Chen-Mayer
NIST
Gaithersburg, MD

Accurate metrology of radiotherapeutic absorbed dose to water requires assessing the radiation induced temperature change. The most direct method for doing this is water calorimetry, for which the established technique involves the use of slender thermistor probes that are sealed within ... Read More
