- New Construction of an Electro-Conjugate Fluid-Jet-Driven Micromotor with an Inner Diameter of 2 mm. Yokota, S; Edamura, K // Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers -- Part I;Jun2006, Vol. 220 Issue 4, p251
Electro-conjugate fluid (hereafter abbreviated as ECF) is a kind of dielectric fluid that produces a powerful jet flow (ECF jet) between rod-type electrodes in an applied non-uniform static electric field. By using the ECF jet, a new type of micromotor with a simple structure and light weight...
