Bi-Weekly Seminar

Diamagnetic and Paramagnetic Levitation Using Magnetic Field

by: Dr. Clement Lorin

Date: Friday November 02, 2012

Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Location: Houston Science Center – Building 593 — Room 102

Overview

In order to develop space technology and better understanding the effect of space travel on human beings, experiments must be carried out in microgravity. Drop towers, parabolic flights or orbital space stations are the usual means to meet the weightlessness conditions. An alternative and complementary option is magnetic levitation that allows for generating a volume magnetic force to counterbalance the gravity at the molecular scale. Several teams over the world are already using superconducting magnets to generate microgravity environments and investigate the biological and physical effects of microgravity. An overview of the experimental possibilities that can be reached by Earth-based magnetic levitation devices will be provided. Since the magnetic field distribution is bound by Maxwell’s equations, the generated force field cannot be constant and uniform in a 3D domain leading to residual accelerations (magnetic compensation of gravity cannot be perfect); we will described some theoretical works on the magnetic forces showing that the resulting accelerations on the sample can be controlled. This leads to some basic rules and constraints on magnet design that could be used for building the next generation of levitating apparatuses.
