Innovative Motor Designs for Electric Cars Come to Life

Omar Laldin, Faraday Future, USA

If electric vehicles are to ultimately transcend from niche to mainstream, their motor designs must continually progress. Modern improvements in electric vehicle motors, known as power magnetic devices (PMDs), come in the form of simultaneous increases in power capability and ... Read More

A New Route to High Sensitivity Pressure Sensors

Jonas Osório, Cristiano Cordeiro, Unicamp; Marcos Franco, Valdir Serrão, Instituto de Estudos Avançados, Brazil

The environments in which sensors are most integral are often the most harsh and unforgiving, such as vacuum chambers, the ocean floor, and petroleum reservoirs. Traditional sensing techniques are not ideal in these applications, whereas optical fiber sensors can provide a versatile ... Read More

MTC Develops Simulation App to Revolutionize Design for Additively Manufactured Parts

Borja Lazaro Toralles, Manufacturing Technology Centre, UK

Tolerances and precision in the aerospace industry are astoundingly tight. Because of the high degree of regulation and safety required, errors and deformation from thermal cycling that occur on the micron scale during manufacturing processes can render a part unusable. Manufacturing ... Read More

Optimizing Screen Protection During the Manufacturing Process

Frank Hong, Kornerstone Materials Technology (KMTC), China

Cover glass, the screen surface material used for tablets and cell phones, offers exceptional smoothness, a mark-free surface, high visible light transmittance, and protection. The caveat is the glass' arduous manufacturing process and complicated behavior under different conditions. To ... Read More

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane: Flow Patterns around an Oscillating Piezoelectric Fan Blade

Akshat Agarwal, Nokia Bell Labs, Ireland

As electronics grow smaller and smaller and are used for extensive periods of time, their internal heat loads are greater and demand new compact cooling methods. Piezoelectric fans, a stepping stone between natural and forced convection, are one attractive option due to their low energy ... Read More
