Junfang Zhu, Toshiyuki Hayashi, Atsuhiro Nishino, Koji Ogushi


This paper reports a new microforce generating machine under development at NMIJ, AIST. We proposed a new microforce generating method by referring to the principle of the Kibble balance experiment and planned to apply it to a rotary type machine. Microforce in the micronewton and millinewton range can precisely be generated using this newly developed machine.
