Title: Nanoactuators: Novel synchronous reluctance nanomachines
Author: Lyshevski, Sergey
Abstract: All synthesized to date nano- and microscale machines and actuators benefit from mimicking of biomachines. Due to nanobiomachines and nanobioactuators complexity, it is yet unknown how these rotational nanobiodevices operate. The basic physics of synchronous reluctance nanomachines is examined in this paper. These nanomachines operate due to the variable reluctance, and the torque is produced to minimize the reluctance of the electromagnetic system. This electromagnetic torque is created by the closed magnetic system in attempt to align the minimum-reluctance path of the rotor with the rotating airgap mmf. This nanoactuator has a minimum level of complexity. Nanoactuators are modeled, simulated and analyzed. The paper examines the questions of viability of the devised nanomachines studying Escherichia coli (E.coli) nanobiomotor. We further expand nanotechnology through devising new nanomachines and nanoactuators solving sequential synthesis, modeling, simulation, analysis and optimization problems. The reported concept is verified designing and fabricating a synchronous micromachine.
