  • Publication number: 20220145906
    Abstract: An exhaust turbocharger has a housing, in which a shaft is mounted by bearings, which carries a turbine wheel, on the one hand, and a compressor wheel, on the other hand. An electric machine has a rotor and a stator. The rotor is secured on the shaft for conjoint rotation therewith and the stator surrounds the rotor radially on the outside. A sleeve, which supports the rotor radially and axially, is arranged between the stator and the rotor. The sleeve has at least one fluid duct, by way of which a cooling fluid can be guided toward the bearings of the shaft.

  • Patent number: 10131426
    Abstract: The invention relates to an aircraft which can both take off and land vertically and can hover and also fly horizontally at a high cruising speed. The aircraft has a support structure, a wing structure, at least three and preferably at least four lifting rotors and at least one thrust drive. The wing structure is designed to generate a lifting force for the aircraft during horizontal motion. To achieve this the wing structure has at least one mainplane provided with a profile that generates dynamic lift. The wing structure is preferably designed as a tandem wing structure. Each of the lifting rotors is fixed to the support structure, has a propeller and is designed to generate a lifting force for the aircraft by means of a rotation of the propeller, said force acting in a vertical direction. The thrust drive is designed to generate a thrust force on the support structure, said force acting in a horizontal direction. The lifting rotors can have a simple construction, i.e.

  • Patent number: 9754651
    Abstract: A magnetoresistive memory element is provided with a read module having a first pinned layer with a magnetoresistance that is readable by a read current received from an external circuit. A write module has a nanocontact that receives a write current from the external circuit and, in turn, imparts a spin torque to a free layer that functions as a shared storage layer for both the read module and the write module.

  • Patent number: 9633683
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a write head comprising a near-field transducer at a media-facing surface of the write head and a waveguide extending along a light-propagation direction. The waveguide is configured to receive light emitted from a light source at a fundamental transverse electric mode. The waveguide is configured to deliver the light to the near-field transducer at a transverse magnetic mode which directs surface plasmons to a recording medium in response thereto. The waveguide comprises a core with first and second tapers separated by a straight portion of constant cross sectional width. The first and second tapers successively decrease a cross-sectional width of the core as it nears the near-field transducer. The waveguide includes an end portion between the second taper and the near field transducer. The end portion comprises a top cladding layer, aside cladding layer, and a bottom cladding layer on the side cladding layer.

  • Patent number: 9558764
    Abstract: A write head includes a near-field transducer near a media-facing surface of the write head. The write head includes a waveguide having a core with a first side disposed proximate to the near-field transducer. The core overlaps the near-field transducer at a substrate-parallel plane. The core includes one of a step or a taper on a second side facing away from the first side. The step or the taper causes a reduced thickness of the core normal to the substrate-parallel plane. The write head includes a cladding layer that encompassing the second side of the core and that fills in the step or the taper.
