    Laser cladding is a deposition process, depicted in Figure 1, which uses a laser beam to melt the surface of a metallic substrate and a substance added in the form of powder flow so that the two materials are fused by metallurgical bonding. Usually, laser cladding consists of a processing head, where the laser beam and powder flow are generated, that moves over the target part. The melted powder p... View full abstract»

    The aim of this article is to review of power electronics-based CET systems. Various techniques are divided according to the medium used for energy transfer and are presented as (see Figure 1) acoustics-based CETs, light-based CETs, capacitive-based CETs, and the largest group, inductively coupled CETs. The basic principles and the latest developments in these techniques with a special focus on in... View full abstract»

    Tracking back the history of electricity, we see that the possibility of transmitting electrical signals very quickly was conceived soon after English physicist Stephen Gray (~16661736) discovered the difference between insulators and conductors in 1731, the latter being able to transmit electric virtue. In fact, Charles-François de Cisternay du Fay (16991739), a French aristocrat, retired ... View full abstract»
