AbstractThe quantitative correlations between workpiece volume and melt pool geometry, as well as the flow and thermal features of the melt pool are established. Thermocapillary convections in melt pool with a deformable free surface are investigated with respect to surface shape and laser intensity. When the contact angle between the tangent to the top surface and the vertical wall at the hot center is acute, the free surface flattens, compared with that of the initial free surface. Otherwise, the free surface forms a bowl-like shape with a deep crater and a low peripheral rim when the contact angle at the hot center is obtuse. Increasing the workpiece volume at a fixed laser intensity and a negative radial height gradient cause linear decreases in the geometric size and magnitude of flow and temperature of the melt pool. Conversely, linear increases are observed with a positive radial height gradient. © 2011 American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).

From Terahertz Surface Waves to Spoof Surface Plasmon PolaritonsXu, Yuehong; Zhang, Ying; Xu, Quan; Zhang, Xueqian; Li, Yanfeng; Gu, Jianqiang; Tian, Zhen; Ouyang, Chunmei; Zhang, Xixiang; Zhang, Weili; Han, Jiaguang (2018 43rd International Conference on Infrared, Millimeter, and Terahertz Waves (IRMMW-THz), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-11-16) [Conference Paper]Surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) promise versatile potential applications in many aspects and thus have been a subject of enormous interest. However, in the terahertz regime, due to perfect conductivity of most metals, it is hard to realize a strong confinement of SPPs although a propagation loss could be sufficiently low. Here we introduce the recent work from terahertz surface waves to spoof SPPs based on metasurfaces.
Measurement of the surface susceptibility and the surface conductivity of atomically thin MoS2 by spectroscopic ellipsometryJayaswal, Gaurav; Dai, Zhenyu; Zhang, Xixiang; Bagnarol, Mirko; Martucci, Alessandro; Merano, Michele (Optics Letters, The Optical Society, 2018-02-07) [Article]We show how to correctly extract from the ellipsometric data the surface susceptibility and the surface conductivity that describe the optical properties of monolayer MoS. Theoretically, these parameters stem from modelling a single-layer two-dimensional crystal as a surface current, a truly two-dimensional model. Current experimental practice is to consider this model equivalent to a homogeneous slab with an effective thickness given by the interlayer spacing of the exfoliating bulk material. We prove that the error in the evaluation of the surface susceptibility of monolayer MoS, owing to the use of the slab model, is at least 10% or greater, a significant discrepancy in the determination of the optical properties of this material.
Semi-implicit surface tension formulation with a Lagrangian surface mesh on an Eulerian simulation gridSchroeder, Craig; Zheng, Wen; Fedkiw, Ronald (Journal of Computational Physics, Elsevier BV, 2012-02) [Article]We present a method for applying semi-implicit forces on a Lagrangian mesh to an Eulerian discretization of the Navier Stokes equations in a way that produces a sparse symmetric positive definite system. The resulting method has semi-implicit and fully-coupled viscosity, pressure, and Lagrangian forces. We apply our new framework for forces on a Lagrangian mesh to the case of a surface tension force, which when treated explicitly leads to a tight time step restriction. By applying surface tension as a semi-implicit Lagrangian force, the resulting method benefits from improved stability and the ability to take larger time steps. The resulting discretization is also able to maintain parasitic currents at low levels. © 2011.
