The thermal characteristics of polymathic methacrylate combined with unsaturated polyester were determined by numerical and experimental research. Models for numerically investigating the parameters of thermal conductivity, specific heat capacity, and thermal diffusivity were developed using COMSOL Multiphysics. The numerical data were then compared to experimental results for the same material using the same measurements to ensure that they were correct. By comparing the thermal conductivity data to two sets of theoretical data, the results were confirmed. The COMSOL models were quite close to the experimental data, with just minor differences between the three models. One set of theoretical data coincided with the mean of the other data, while the second set revealed a significant departure below the other data.

Ternary AlGaN alloys with a band gap of 3.4 to 6.2 eV are very promising for photodetectors in the UV wavelength range. Using the COMSOL MULTIPHYSICS software based on AlGaN, a p-i-n photodiode model was developed, including its I–V characteristic, spectral sensitivity of the received radiation, absorption coefficient as a function of the aluminum fraction and the depletion layer thickness. To calculate the process of interaction of a semiconductor with EM radiation, we used a model based on the use of an element of the transition matrix through the carrier lifetime during spontaneous recombination. In this case, the peak sensitivity of the photodiode is from 0.08 to 0.18 A/W at wavelengths of 0.2–0.33 µm. This is in line with experimental results taken from the relevant literature.

Silicon/zinc oxide heterostructures have shown themselves to be promising for use in photovoltaics. This paper presents the results of modeling the charge properties and currents in a Si/nanosized ZnO particle with different types of conductivity under sunlight irradiation. The simulation was carried out using the Comsol Multiphysics software package. The energy diagrams of the investigated heterostructures were plotted, the charge properties and currents flowing in the structure were investigated, the dependences of the rate of generation of charge carriers on wavelength on the surfaces of silicon, zinc oxide, and at the interface between silicon and zinc oxide, the rate of recombination of charge carriers at various wavelengths of incident radiation was obtained. The regularities of the influence of wavelength of the incident radiation on the charge density and electric potential on the surface of heterostructures have been established. It is shown that the potential on the surface of the p-Si / n-ZnO heterostructure is positive, depends on the wavelength of the incident radiation and reaches the maximum of 0.68 V. For other structures, it is negative and does not depend on the wavelength: n-Si / p-ZnO –0.78 V, p-Si / p-ZnO –0.65 V, n-Si / n-ZnO –0.25 V.

The estimation of the deviation in the measurements of thermal conductivity by the laser flash method for materials with different thermal conductivity coefficients, arising due to the presence of a graphite coating on the sample and the small thickness of the sample, is carried out. A computer model of the method was created in the Comsol Multiphysics software environment. For bulk samples with a graphite coating thickness of 20 μm, the deviation is 5.5 %. The thickness of bulk samples does not affect the measurement results. For materials with low thermal conductivity, a sharp increase in the deviation is observed, reaching 60%. For thermally conductive materials, the deviation is 16-18%. For thin samples less than 10 μm thick, the thickness of the graphite coating does not affect the measurement results. The decisive factor is the duration of the laser pulse.

The electro-thermomechanical modeling study of the High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT) has been presented, all the necessary equations are detailed and coupled. This proposed modeling by the finite element method using the Comsol multiphysics software, allowed to study the multiphysics behaviour of the transistor and to observe the different degradations in the structure of the component. Then, an optimization study is necessary to avoid failures in the transistor. In this work, we have used the Covariance Matrix Adaptation-Evolution Strategy (CMA-ES) method to solve the optimization problem, but it requires a very important computing time. Therefore, we proposed the kriging assisted CMA-ES method (KA-CMA-ES), it is an integration of the kriging metamodel in the CMA-ES method, it allows us to solve the problem of optimization and overcome the constraint of calculation time. All these methods are well detailed in this paper. The coupling of the finite element model developed on Comsol Multiphysics and the KA-CMA-ES method on Matlab software, allowed to optimize the multiphysics behaviour of the transistors. We made a comparison between the results of the numerical simulations of the initial state and the optimal state of the component. It was found that the proposed KA-CMA-ES method is efficient in solving optimization problems.

Introduction. Previous works considered the frequency characteristics and methods for fixing sensitive elements in the form of a wave ring resonator on surface acoustic waves in a housing made of various materials, as well as the influence of external factors on sensitive elements. It was found that the passband in such a case is sufficiently wide, which can affect adversely signal detection when measuring acceleration using the sensitive element under development. Therefore, it has become relevant to reduce the sensitive element’s bandwidth by changing the design of the interdigitated transducer (IDT).Aim. To demonstrate an optimal topology for an IDT with a low bandwidth, leading to improved signal detection when acceleration affects the sensitive element.Materials and methods. The finite element method and mathematical processing in AutoCAD and in COMSOL Multiphysics.Results. Nine topologies of IDT are proposed. All these types were investigated using the COMSOL Multiphysics software on lithium niobate substrates, which material acts as a sensitive element. The frequency characteristics are presented. The data obtained allowed an optimal design of the ring resonator to be proposed: an IDT with rectangular pins without selective withdrawal.Conclusion. Self-generation in a ring resonator can be performed by withdrawing no more than one pair of IDTs for 10 or more periods. In this case, the withdrawal of IDTs should be uniform. With an increase in the number of IDT withdrawals, the geometry of the ring resonator is violated, and the wave leaves the structure. The presence of a shared bus keeps the surface acoustic wave inside the IDT structure, and the narrowing of the periods towards the inner part of the structure makes it possible to improve the frequency characteristics of the ring resonator on surface acoustic waves.
