Inventor Robert Catalan has used the work of Berkeley physicist Klaus Halbach to create a new super-high-efficiency electric motor. With Halbach's ideas, Catalan creates ‘near-monopole’ magnetic fields, meaning that 97% of one pole is strengthened, while the other pole’s magnetic field is decreased to about 3%. The phenomenon is known as the “Halbach Array” (and is on Wikipedia).
This new approach to rotor magnetization sends efficiency of an electric motor soaring.
My cohost Xavier Vergara has arranged for an interview with the inventor of this supercharged new concept, in which we will also discuss the potential impact this motor could have in steerting the world clear of climate catastrophe. We hope you can join us.
