Title: Air-bearing fan

Abstract: Air-bearing fan includes a dust-proof cover, a fan blade structure, amagnet, a stator, a sleeve, an electronic circuit board, a housing and athrust disk. While the fan blade structure is rotating, air can be inducedinto a ring-shaped gap so that an air-bearing is formed. And, air is alsoinduced into a thrust gap and forms a thrust bearing. Therefore, thisinvention significantly reduces the noise and increases the fan's rotatingspeed, fan capacity and life.
