Magnetic levitation, which uses a magnetic field to suspend objects in a fluid, is a powerful and versatile technology. We develop a compact magnetic levitation platform compatible with a smart-phone to separate micro-objects and estimate the density of the sample based on its levitation height. A 3D printed attachment is mechanically installed over the(More)
Nonlinear magnetohydrodynamic computation is applied to study magnetic topology evolution for current-driven discharges in the Compact Toroidal Hybrid (CTH). In these simulations, Ohmic currents are driven with a constant applied loop voltage in zero beta plasmas. These driven currents initially are aligned with the vacuum flux surfaces. The rotational(More)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurode-generative disease that is known to affect the nerve cells of the spinal cord and brain, yet is not fully understood. However, in recent years scientists have made great progress in describing the cause of disease pathogene-sis. This vast wealth must be collected and organized in a logical way so(More)
