Exploring the 4 Basic Modes of Electrophoresis
Zone electrophoresis, moving-boundary electrophoresis, isotachophoresis, and isoelectric focusing. In most cases, the physics of new electrophoretic methods can be related back to these 4 modes.
Approaching an Electrochemical Model from Scratch: Lemon Battery
The lemon battery: A high school chemistry experiment, and a great example when learning the general process for how to set up electrochemistry and battery models from scratch.
Modeling a Pacemaker Electrode in COMSOL Multiphysics®
What happens when the heart doesn’t pump the way it should? Pacemakers maintain the heart rate by monitoring natural electrical signals. Pacemaker electrodes are a key part of these devices.
