    • An adhesion-dominated rolling Friction regime unique to micro-scale ball bearings 

      Hanrahan, Brendan M.; Misra, Saswat; Beyaz, Mustafa İlker; Feldman, Jeremy H.; Waits, Christopher M.; Ghodssi, Reza (Tribology Letters, 2014)
      We demonstrate that micro-scale rolling bearings exhibit friction and wear properties markedly different from their macro-scale counterparts. A microfabricated testing platform uses variable rolling element diameters or ...
    • An integrated permanent magnet Micro-turbo- generator supported on microball bearings 

      Beyaz, Mustafa İlker; Hanrahan, Brendan M.; Feldman, Jeremy H.; Ghodssi, Reza (Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, 2013)
      This paper presents the design, fabrication, and testing of an integrated microturbogenerator utilizing permanent magnets and microball bearings. The key components of this generator are the following: 1) a silicon ...
    • Monitoring of actuation conditions in a micro- turbo-generator 

      Beyaz, Mustafa İlker; Hanrahan, Brendan M.; Feldman, Jeremy H.; Ghodssi, Reza (IEEE Sensors Journal, 2013)
      This paper presents the theory and implementation of an integrated sensing technique for the real-time measurement of applied actuation conditions in a micro-turbo-generator. The device is composed of a microturbine rotor ...
