Ansys 2020 R2: Laser Simulation with Ansys Lumerical
Based on the travelling wave laser model (TWLM) in the INTERCONNECT design environment, devices designed with Lumerical account for electronic, optical and thermal effects that are critical for the accurate characterization of laser performance. Ansys provides all the necessary tools to design lasers for popular applications including datacom, biosensing, lidar and more. In the webinar, we will provide an overview of Lumerical’s laser library with those features related to TWLM and MQW solvers highlighted. We will discuss many of the new features available with the recent 2020 R2 release, including: Gain modeling for InP/InGaAsP and GaAs/InGaAs technologies Complex grating structures for DFB models Thermal transport for characterization with self-heating effects Using these features, we will illustrate a complete parameter extraction workflow for an active MQW waveguide that can then be incorporated into a sophisticated compact model for a wide variety of gain and laser designs.
Optimizing Spray Dryer Performance Using Simulations
Spray drying is used in many industries as the preferred method to produce dry free-flowing powders from liquid mixtures/slurries. In the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, several solid dosage forms are based on microparticles. Dry powders are inhaled as aerosols into the lungs, delivered to the nose, filled into capsules or pressed into tablets for oral applications. The food industry uses spray drying to manufacture powdered drink mixes, spices, flavorings, etc. This webinar highlights how simulations enable deep insights into the spray drying process. We will discuss how nozzle selection and design are driven by predicting droplet-size distribution, spray patterns and other variables, which are dependent on surface tension and viscosity of the liquid mixture/slurry. Additionally, we will explain why predicting the rate at which drying occurs allows for sizing of the drying chamber and informs the heating requirement of the hot gases upstream. Lastly, we will explore how simulations help engineers understand the separation process in cyclone separators.
Comprehensive Conductive EMI Analysis of Electric Vehicle Drivetrains
Wide bandgap devices have been introduced to electric vehicle (EV) drivetrain for their superiority in loss reduction. However, largely increased switching frequency also introduces major electromagnetic interference (EMI) challenges. Under certain circumstances, motor resolver EMI issues can result in total power loss for prototype EVs. This webinar spotlights Ansys’ differentiated modeling capabilities for comprehensive electric drivetrains, enabling engineers to virtually design system architectures, evaluate drivetrain performance and assess EMI risks and root causes. This analysis workflow has been recognized as a critical puzzle piece for developing next-generation electric drivetrains. Learn how Ansys tools help virtually design system architecture. Explore how Ansys simulation solutions help evaluate drivetrain performance. Understand how Ansys’ modeling capabilities help you assess EMI risks and root causes.
Photonic Integrated Circuits for Next-Generation Connectivity and Sensing
Miniaturisation and system scaling is pushing the conventional electronic system toward energy efficiency. While system scaling is bringing enriched functionality, there are fundamental limitations to an electronic system. Heterogeneous integrating electronic and photonic designs is the best way to realize a functional and scalable system as systems become increasingly smaller. Unlike electrons, photons are not easy to manipulate. In this webinar we will discuss the fundamental requirements and limitations of a photonic integrated circuit, with a focus on how to confine and propagate light in a sub-microstructure. We will also discuss the various optical functionalities required in a photonic integrated circuit and how they are realized. Over the past two decades, various optical functionalities have been demonstrated that could enable future connectivity and optical sensing. We will present key demonstrations from the research group at Indian Institute of Science in the areas of high-speed data connectivity, RF signal processing, on-chip high-speed photodetection and on-chip sensing. Speaker Name: Dr. Shankar Kumar Tenured faculty at the Centre for Nano Science and Engineering and the deputy-chair of the national nano-fabrication facility at Indian Institute of Science Bangalore.
3D Lithium-ion Battery Electrochemical Modeling Using Ansys Fluent
It is important to understand the phenomena taking place inside a battery in order to enhance its performance. However, visualizing extremely small-scale phenomena can be problematic. Ansys’ 3D lithium-ion (Li-ion) electrochemical model can solve the phenomena inside of a battery related to potential, Li, Li-ion transport and electrochemical reaction. These results will help to understand battery performance due to electrode construction, porosity, Li concentration, material properties and so on. In this webinar, we introduce the 3D lithium-ion battery electrochemical model theory in Fluent along with its graphic user interface.
