Abstract:

During this reporting period, we continued developing the stator and slider electrodes and refined the methodology for evaluating and mitigating the failure risks of the MREM actuators. TDF worked with Life BioSciences, Inc. LBSI, to design and fabricate a test-bed MREM actuator with a single pair of stator and slider layers. The left side of Figure 1 shows schematics of the wiring layout for a half of a stator layer. The other half of the stator layer has a similar wiring layout. The right side of the figure shows a photo of the two halves of a recently fabricated unit When the two halves are joined, the electrode wires are interleaved creating four sets of evenly spaced, independent stator electrodes.
