- Halbach array - it's an asymmetric field, far stronger on one side, but the magnet layout looks surprisingly symmetric!
- Halbach cylinder - it's a halbach array that's made of permanent magnets that's off-and-onable!

|I award you this Barnstar for your hard work on the Rocket article. Congratulations, and keep up the good work. :) Pursey Talk | Contribs 00:34, 8 September 2007 (UTC)|

|I've observed your efforts in upholding the Network Neutrality article. Even if there was no reason to doubt your opposing number's motives, it's clear from his condescension, his insults and his steadfast refusal of views other than his own that he has no interest in cooperating, and accordingly that your work has been valuable. That you've been at it for nine months astounds me. Want one of these? --Kizor 15:33, 26 March 2007 (UTC)|
