Novel electrostatic micromotors

1993 Sixth International Conference on Electrical Machines and Drives (Conf. Publ. No. 376), 1993

Electrostatic micromotors thus far reported are based on the principle of capacitive induction whereby a voltage on the stator induces a potential on a conducting rotor which then moves to minimise its potential energy. This paper describes two novel alternative designs electrostatic micromotor. The first motor currently being worked on uses a permanently charged electret material on the rotor which ...


ELISA-an electrostatic storage ring for atomic physics

Proceedings of the 1997 Particle Accelerator Conference (Cat. No.97CH36167), 1997

The design of a new type of storage ring (synchrotron) for heavy ions using electrostatic deflection and focusing devices is described. Such a storage ring will be attractive for many atomic-physics experiments, and also for basic research in neighboring fields such as chemistry and biology.


Speed-energy optimization of electrostatic actuators based on pull-in

Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, 1999

The speed and total energy required to accomplish pull-in switching of a generic electrostatic actuator is examined. It is found that the value of the source resistance of the voltage drive used for switching has a profound effect on both switching speed and energy requirements. The source resistance governs the charging time for the actuating capacitor. As long as this ...

Determination of the forces present in an electrostatic micromotor

1993 Sixth International Conference on Electrical Machines and Drives (Conf. Publ. No. 376), 1993

A detailed knowledge of the distribution of forces in a micromechanical system such as a micromotor is of great value at the design stage of such devices. It is preferable to analyse these forces using simulations of the system before the design is built and tested, since the cost of fabrication of micromechanical systems is high. This paper presents results ...

  • Novel electrostatic micromotors

    Electrostatic micromotors thus far reported are based on the principle of capacitive induction whereby a voltage on the stator induces a potential on a conducting rotor which then moves to minimise its potential energy. This paper describes two novel alternative designs electrostatic micromotor. The first motor currently being worked on uses a permanently charged electret material on the rotor which interacts with the stator voltages to give rotation. The second design is a miniature electric ionisation machine which develops a thrust by corona discharge of ions.<>

  • Speed-energy optimization of electrostatic actuators based on pull-in

    The speed and total energy required to accomplish pull-in switching of a generic electrostatic actuator is examined. It is found that the value of the source resistance of the voltage drive used for switching has a profound effect on both switching speed and energy requirements. The source resistance governs the charging time for the actuating capacitor. As long as this time is slower than the time required to accelerate the moving mass to maximum speed in the presence of damping, the total energy required for switching can be dramatically reduced without a significant increase in switching time. Indeed, there exists a clear optimum source-resistance value that minimizes the product of switching time and switching energy. These findings are demonstrated theoretically and then applied to specific examples from the literature. In addition, the limiting case of very large source resistance, essentially a current drive, is evaluated and compared to the voltage-driven case. It is found that for equivalent switching times, the current drive requires less total energy for a switching event.

  • Determination of the forces present in an electrostatic micromotor

    A detailed knowledge of the distribution of forces in a micromechanical system such as a micromotor is of great value at the design stage of such devices. It is preferable to analyse these forces using simulations of the system before the design is built and tested, since the cost of fabrication of micromechanical systems is high. This paper presents results of three dimensional simulations of a practical design of a high aspect ratio micromotor. The analysis of the electrostatic fields in the micromotor geometry gives detailed profiles of the forces acting on the various microstructures. These results indicate high localisation of forces in certain areas of the micromotor. An example is given of the application of the force analysis results in the prediction of frictional effects on the rotor caused by the axial force exerted on it.<>

  • Design studies of an electrostatic quadrupole channel for transport of a high-brightness H/sup -/ beam and comparison with gas focusing

    Summary Form only given, as follows. The authors developed a conceptual design for an electrostatic quadrupole channel for transport of a 120-keV, 120-mA, H/sup -/ beam into a 425-MHz radio frequency quadrupole accelerator with low emittance growth and high transmission efficiency. This design satisfies several constraints imposed by voltage breakdown and beam optics considerations. The system will consist entirely of electrostatic lenses, which prevent plasma buildup and eliminate possible emittance growth from plasma fluctuations. A worst-case nonlinear analysis for the electrostatic quadrupole channel has been carried out, and preliminary results have been obtained using a particular simulation code to study beam loss and emittance. As an alternative to the electrostatic quadrupole concept, gas focusing is being investigated for transporting low-energy H/sup -/ beams.<>

  • The design of a 400 kV parallel plate electrostatic analyzer for use with the 2 MeV heavy ion beam probe

    Summary Form only given, as follows. A parallel-plate electrostatic energy analyzer is being designed for use with a 2-MeV heavy ion beam probe. The electrostatic analyzer will be capable of measuring Tl/sup 2+/ ions of energies up to 2 MeV. Design goals are an accuracy of +or-40 V for potential profile measurements and +or-3 V r.m.s. for potential fluctuations. The design is based on a scaled-up version (by a factor of four) of the analyzer currently being used on the 500-keV beam probe on the Texas Experimental Tokamak (TEXT). An anticipated problem associated with the scale-up is that the analyzer top plate voltage will be 350-400 kV (four times the present analyzer voltage). Greater care must be taken to reduce the likelihood of arcing by the electric field. Computer simulations of the analyzer's electric fields and equipotential surfaces are being carried out to optimize the design and limit the possibility of field breakdown within the analyzer and between the analyzer and vacuum chamber wall. Models of the current TEXT beam probe analyzer are also being constructed for comparison.<>
