Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This work lies in developing an in-situ gene gun tool with high impulse force. The projectile impact device for bombardment process of the gene gun adopts the empirical apparatus from an electric tacker. The finite element method magnetics (FEMM) is used for analyzing and simulating the magnetic field and the produced impulsive force during the dynamic process of the projectile. The error of numerical simulation with experimental value is approximately 6-7%. This result consolidates the research and development of the Bio-technology device for meeting the requirements of varying DNA bombardment process.
