Insight into Electrochemical Processes via Multiphysics Modeling
Electrochemical manufacturing processes such as electropolishing and electrodeposition use electrical current to modify surfaces in useful ways via selective addition and/or removal of material. Multiple physical phenomena are typically active in industrial-scale electrochemical processes, including electric fields, heat and mass transfer, geometric deformation, fluid flow (often multiphase), surface chemistry and its accompanying kinetic polarization effects, and surface oxide growth and removal. Simulation of these systems is often challenging, as the various physics relevant to a given model are tightly coupled in most cases. In this talk, I will highlight examples of electrochemical processes to which Faraday Technology, Inc. has applied modeling with the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, illustrating the power and flexibility of the multiphysics paradigm to provide understanding of and predictive power for the complex behaviors of industrial electrochemical systems.
Experimental Meets Theoretical: Advancing Terahertz Science and Technology via the Multiphysics Modeling of Phenomena and Devices
The last 30 years have seen significant growth in the development of the science and technology associated with the use of the terahertz frequency segment of the electromagnetic spectrum. Spectroscopic, imaging, and sensing applications using terahertz frequencies have advanced from the laboratory benchtop to the real world. The evolutionary pathway of this progression has required novel approaches for the design of sources, detectors, and waveguides that were greatly aided by electromagnetic modeling. In addition, the theoretical understanding of how terahertz light interacts with the physical world has required further understanding that was aided by multiphysics simulations. In this talk, I will describe the development of terahertz science and technology, weaving in examples of how simulations and modeling have advanced terahertz devices and phenomenology, including antennas, waveguides, metamaterials, and surface plasmons.
