Designing gradient micro-coils for electromagnetic control of polishing process in micro-channel performed by abrasive magnetic nano-particles

Designing gradient micro-coils for electromagnetic control of polishing process in micro-channel performed by abrasive magnetic nano-particles
Type:Master Thesis
Supervisor:

Dr. Kirill Poletkin

Field of Study:

Mechanical engineering, physics

Links:Spin & Photon Applications (SPA) Laboratory

Job description

In the framework of the Master Thesis, the student will be involved in the study and simulation of a mechanical interaction between magnetic nano-particles and designed gradient micro-coils in order to perform and localize the controlled polishing process.

Main objectives are:

  • Designing, modelling and simulation of magnetic gradient generated by micro-coils (considering geometry and shape effect of the coils);
  • Study and simulation of the electro-mechanical interactions between the local magnetic gradient and magnetic nano-particles;
  • Demonstrate a suitable micro-coil design able to perform a localized polishing process.

 

Starting date: as soon as possible

Contract duration: 6 months

Qualification:
An ideal candidate should demonstrate the following knowledge and skills:

  • background in electro-magnetic systems;
  • experiences in using FEM tools – COMSOL, ANSYS etc;
  • to be familiar with computer-aided systems (CAD) –SolidWorks.
