We have already managed to make the first prototype of a helical antenna around a steel core. 

After testing this first prototype and seeing the results obtained, we have realized that we must use a non-magnetic core. 

The development of UWIPOM2´s micro bearings continues. Getting to devise, test and choose the right materials for microbearing to have a long useful life is already a challenge.
After drawing conclusions from our simulations, we faced the challenge posed by the characteristic microsize of UWIPOM2 technology when it comes to micro-fabrication.

UWIPOM2´s teams met in a virtual meeting last 23st of April, 2021. The research continues and following the recommendation for this still pandemic situation, the team met on a virtual meeting platform.

We all are sorry about the sudden death of Mr. Jacek Rudnicki by COVID from WUT team. The team of UWIPOM2 presents their condolences to all their colleagues and family, Rest In Peace.

Most of the teams could resume their research activity which was depleted during the hardest months of the current situation caused by the coronavirus COVID-19.

After some adjustments of the micro-winding station and some improvement of the technique, the semiautomatic winding of micro coils is getting faster and more uniform. We are using 0.1mm stainless Steel core pin and 0.025 mm self bonding copper wire but smaller diameters could be used.
