Break for Lunch
12:15 pm
Parallel Session
Optics & Photonics

Learn about using the Ray Optics Module and Wave Optics Module for optics and photonics applications.

Optimization and Product Design

Sensitivity analysis can be used to identify important parameters that can then be changed manually or automatically using optimization. Optimization of these parameters enhances the performance of your product. In the case of manufacturing uncertainties, it is possible to compute several objectives and optimize for the worst of them. You will see several examples of how optimization can be set up in the COMSOL® user interface.

1:00 pm

Design of Metasurfaces

One can design optical components by engineering features with the same order of magnitude as the light wavelength. In this talk, we want to present strategies for how to design and simulate such structures. We will show examples of implementable structures and how to estimate and evaluate their optical performance.

This introductory demonstration will show you the process of transforming models into specialized simulation applications and distributing them with COMSOL Compiler™ and COMSOL Server™, application deployment products.

3:00 pm
Parallel Session
Thermal Analysis

Get a brief overview of using the Heat Transfer Module within the COMSOL® software environment. We will discuss conjugate heat transfer with the combination of heat transfer in solids and heat transfer in fluids, including thermal radiation effects. These phenomena could also be coupled with structural mechanics, chemical reactions, and particle tracing.

High-Frequency Electromagnetics

Learn about the capabilities of the RF Module, Wave Optics Module, and Ray Optics Module for simulating high-frequency electromagnetic waves and rays. Topics include the analysis of microwave, photonics, and optical components including waveguides, antennas, lenses, and high-power laser systems. We will also address the coupling of electromagnetics simulations to other physics, such as heat transfer, including RF heating and STOP analysis.

3:45 pm
Parallel Session
Battery and Fuel Cell Simulations

Get an overview of using the Batteries & Fuel Cells Module within the COMSOL® software environment for modeling batteries and fuel cells. Aspects related to the transport of ions and current, porous electrodes, and electrode reactions relevant to both applications will be covered. We will address the simulation of lithium-ion battery power and capacity using realistic vehicle drive cycles, modeling of thermal effects on both cell and pack levels, safety aspects, and modeling of capacity fade. In addition, you will get an introduction to different types of models, from low cost to high fidelity. We will discuss aspects related to parameters and parameterization for models, including the simulation of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) data.
