By employing a combination of magnetic forces and those from electrostatic fields, a new stabilizer is able, unlike those employing dynamic effects, to function at any speed with no need for sensors or dynamically generated electrical currents. Embodiments are provided that stabilize the radial, axial and tilt instability. In addition to its use for stabilization, the radial stabilizer described herein also functions as an eccentricity detector.
