High temperature super conducting (HTS) cables are gaining attentions for their ability to transmit more power compared to their convention counterparts with essentially no resistance and electromagnetic emissions. They are also appropriate for solving the grid congestion problem in the power corridors with their reduced size and weight. But the AC loss that occurs in the HTS cables reduces the ...

RFID-Enabled Temperature Sensor

I.M. Abdel-Motaleb[1], K. Allen [1]
[1]Department of Electrical Engineering, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL, USA

The design of a RFID-enabled temperature sensor is described in this paper. In this sensor, a change in temperature causes structural beams to bend, which results in a proportional displacement of the plates of the capacitor. Plates\' displacement results, in turn, in changing the value of its capacitance. The capacitor of the sensor is coupled to the LC resonant network of a passive RFID tag. ...

Integrated Ion Optics Design - new

T. Majoros[1], B. Sebök[1]
[1]Department of Atomic Physics, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Budapest, Hungary

Introduction: This study aims the optimization and sensitivity analysis of an existing device. A Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometer (SIMS) device is to be equipped with a high power laser in order to increase sputtering speed. The modified device must be capable of handling the increased level of contamination and energy spread of sample ions. Use of COMSOL Multiphysics® software: Transmission ...

Resistive Losses in a 3D Coil

U. Hafner [1],
[1] Baumer Electric AG, Frauenfeld, Switzerland

In this presentation it is shown how an axially symmetric coil can be simulated in a non-symmetric environment. A rotationally symmetric coil can be simulated by using a 2D model. Doing so the serial equivalent resistance of the coil is obtained among other results. The influence of the environment needs to be simulated with a 3D model. In this model the single wires of the coil are replaced by ...

MultiPhysics Simulation of Direct Double Helix Magnets for Charged Particle Applications

P. J. Masson[1], and R. B. Meinke[1]
[1]Advanced Magnet Lab, Palm Bay, Florida, USA

Charged particle beam manipulation requires magnetic dipoles for steering and quadrupoles for focusing. Conventional magnets are currently used leading to very large and heavy systems. Miniaturization of the optic magnets would enable the development of more affordable systems and potentially portable devices. The Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc. has developed a revolutionary magnet topology and ...

Interactions of Magnetic Particles in a Rotational Magnetic Field

A. Weddemann, A. Auge, F. Wittbracht, S. Herth, A. Hütten
Bielefeld University, Germany

Particle-particle interactions are usually neglected when considering the behaviour of magnetic particle's so called magnetic beads in e.g. a microfluidic device. However, if the particle density exceeds a critical limit, this assumption might not lead to proper results anymore. In this paper the particle-particle interaction of magnetic beads in an external magnetic field will be discussed. It ...

FEM Modeling in Robust Design for Graphene-Based Electromagnetic Shielding

S. Elia [1], G. Granata [1], P. Lamberti [1], V. Tucci [1],
[1] University Of Salerno, Italy

Electromagnetic shielding design is usually approached referring to nominal values of the main parameters. This could lead to malfunctioning devices and its performance differ widely from what was really aimed at or, worse, the final design product could even be physically unrealizable. This work presents a robust approach to the design of EM Shielding based on Graphene (Gph) layers. It is a two ...
