Correlated Electromagnetic Levitation Actuator

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Approach is to first characterize the capabilities of correlated electromagnets by developing a prototype with readily available materials and manufacturing techniques. Then expand that capability by building two more prototypes that demonstrate specific controllable behavior. To show that this technology is feasible for applications described under the Goal Being Addressed, demonstrate that one correlated electromagnet can be levitated above another correlated electromagnet at various controllable heights and then rotated at that levitation height. This will demonstrate that the change in levitation height and rotation can be actuated through controlling the individual dipoles of the correlated electromagnets. More »
