Abstract:Virtual prototyping of passive components and subsystems is now possible both in Time Domain and in Frequency Domain, by using powerful 3D full-wave Maxwell equations solvers. While virtual EM prototyping in the microwave regime is well established, the THz and optical applications deserve dedicated treatment for dispersive materials, solutions to all-dielectric waveguides, and capability to treat Plasmon effects in metals. We shall demonstrate the capabilities of present solvers by presenting various examples.
BIO:Avraham Frenkel - Received the B.Sc. degree in Mathematics & Physics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel in 1970; and the M.Sc. & Ph.D. degrees in Physics from the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot , Israel in 1972 & 1978 respectively. From 1978 to 1995 he worked in Rafael Electromagnetic Department, Israel and was involved in EMC, EM scattering and the development of antennas, antenna arrays. From 1995 to 2000 he worked in marketing and support of electromagnetic CAE for MacNeal Schwendler Corporation and Ansoft Corporation. Since 2001 he has his own consulting company Anafa – Electromagnetic Solutions Ltd, and is involved in consulting to the defense and high-tech industries in Israel. He had joint R&D with the Physics Department , Hebrew University in Jerusalem on near-field microwave scanning microscope and photonic bandgap structures. Presently he is also representing CST - Computer Simulation Technology - in Israel
