Design and simulation of a superconducting magnetic system for milli/microrobotics applications

Abstract : Magnetically actuated robots are currently being studied as a potential technology for navigation within a human body to deliver drugs or perform minimally invasive surgery. Ex vivo applications like microconstruction or micro sensing are also considered. Superconducting materials offer the advantages of being able to carry large current densities with low losses compared to regular conductors. This drastically increases the energy efficiency of the system while reducing its size. It also allows producing higher magnetic field. This paper presents the different elements that need to be taken into consideration when designing a superconducting system for milli/microrobotics applications.
