### An Efficient Optical Propagation Technique for Optical MEM Simulation

As designers become more aggressive in introducing optical components into micro-systems, additional capabilities are required for modeling and simulation tools. Common optical modeling techniques are not applicable for most optical micro-systems, and techniques that are [...]

### Dynamic Analysis of Electrostatic MEMS by Meshless Methods

Electrostatically actuated microstructures are widely used in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Computational analysis of electrostatic MEMS requires a self-consistent solution of the interior elastic domain and the exterior electrostatic domain. This paper proposes an efficient approach [...]

Drag force calculation due to slip flows is important in predicting the performance of the microstructures with minimum feature size around 1 mm. In this paper, an efficient numerical approach to compute the drag force [...]

### Computation Speedup of Macromodels for Dynamic Simulation of Microsystem

A doubly clamped microbeam actuated by electrostatic force with squeezed gas film damping is a well-known micro device for many researchers to demonstrate how reduced-order dynamic macromodels are an effective way to faithfully capture the [...]

### Large Scale FDTD Simulation for Microoptics and Metamaterial Investigations – Current Possibilities and Verification Benchmarks

The study of microsystems containing photonic crystals (PC) and meta-materials are rapidly growing fields of research. Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) full wave electromagnetic solvers are now increasingly used to investigate and design such systems. However, in [...]

*Sandia National Laboratories, US*We describe a technique for modeling electrochemical microchannel flows including the propagation of uncertainty from model parameters and boundary conditions to the model predictions. The approach uses a pseudo-spectral stochastic construction with a polynomial chaos [...]

### Computational Modeling of Fluidic Micro-Handling Processes

This paper describes the application of a new and unconventional numerical method for computational modeling of fluidic micro-handling processes. The key requirement for modeling such processes is the ability to simulate flows with large number [...]

### Mixing and Impulse Extremization in Microscale Vortex Formation

A key idea in microscale mixing, where the conventional turbulent mixing is not applicable, is to increase the area of the interface between two fluids. Significant entrainment and consequently mixing during vortex formation works based [...]

### Analysis of Phonon Dispersion Relations From Atomic Model to Continuum Theory

The phonon dispersion relations calculated by atomic model: shell model and ab initio, and by microcontinuum theory are introduced in this paper. It is found that both atomic models and microcontinuum theory can describe the [...]

A significant portion of the time required for simulating full three-dimensional (3D) charge transport in semiconductor devices using particle-based methods is spent solving the necessary field equations. Two highly effective, iterative techniques available for solving [...]

### Efficient Full-Wave Modeling of Electromagnetic Field Propagation Through Micro-Optical Link

Low dimensions of contemporary micro-optics imply the necessity of inclusion of vector diffraction effects into optical models. Classical geometrical optics and Gaussian beam calculation approaches are too coarse approximations. They do not properly take into [...]
