ETH Zürich is a world renowned technical university which was founded in 1855. Key figures are: approximately 19 000 students, 21 affiliated nobel prize winners and an annual budget of approximately 1.7 billion Swiss Francs. The Institute of Electromagnetic Fields (IEF) is part of the department Information Technology and Electrical Engineering.
The IEF performs research on wave and particle characteristics of electromagnetic fields at all frequencies.Of particular interest are fields in the optical, terahertz and microwave regime. Among other applications the institute has a strong background in applied photonics, plasmonics and photovoltaics. The IEF works on theoretical aspects, performs numerical simulations, designs, fabricates and characterizes new components. The institute has its own software library and it has strong relations with state-of-the art labs at ETHZ and as well at IBM Rüschlikon.
Within MMAMA, ETHZ will develop a solver for SMM tips on semiconductors under different illumination conditions. The in-house software library will be used to run experiments on the coupling of Maxwell’s equations and drift diffusion equations and Bloch’s equations.
The suggested project will be carried out as a theoretical simulation work by using the following selfdeveloped simulation tools available at the IEF:
Prof. Dr. Jasmin Smajic (male) is an electrical engineer with a PhD (Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing in Zagreb) in computational electrodynamics. Since 2007 he is a lecturer at ETHZ and
since 2011 he is a professor of electrical engineering at the university of applied sciences in Rapperswil (Switzerland). He has >15 years of experience in solving electromagnetic problems and developing solvers for electromagnetic problems. He developed an in-house library to test new solver techniques and he contributed to the development of the OpenMax code, a multiple multipole solver for electromagnetic problems
