Must be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Graduate
Description: This course will provide a hands-on experience on the modeling of micro and nano systems based on the mutual interaction among different physical phenomena. COMSOL Multiphysics, based on the Finite Element Method (FEM), will be utilized as flexible modeling tool to learn how to design a wide range of devices or describe coupled physical mechanisms including electromagnetic waves, heat transfer, fluid dynamics and mass transport. The course will focus in particular on the interaction between light and nanomaterials and how electromagnetic heat dissipation can play a major role in different applications Recommended Prerequisite(s): Basic electromagnetism and basic calculus
