Micro bearing systems for Micro Electrome-chanical Systems (MEMS) have drawn attention for several decades as critical components for micro rotating machinery. Ideally, frictionless bearings are needed, and in practice, micro gas bearings approach the ideal. Typically, bearings function as a separate component, assembled onto sliding counterparts. However,(More)
A micro corona motor was fabricated using a membraneless built-on X-ray mask. Sharp stator electrodes of this motor ionize air molecules and ionized charges transfer onto the rotor surface, resulting in rotating rotor motions by Coulomb forces. For good performance , the stator's electrodes should be wide (axial) and have sharp tips. Therefore, X-ray(More)
The HASTE (half-Fourier acquisition single-shot turbo spin-echo) technique delivers images with T2-weighting in about half a second and could be ideal for fast dynamic studies when T2-weighting is needed. We evaluated cardiac-triggered HASTE to study cervical spine flexion/extension. The cervical spines of ten asymptomatic volunteers were studied during(More)
A solenoidal RF coil is presented that generates an RF field only perpendicular to the long axis, so that it can be used longitudinally in the usual superconducting solenoid magnet for NMR. This new design is superior to the traditional saddle coil or Helmholtz pair. Applications for the coil will include imaging of legs, arms, etc., as well as analytical(More)
