The Next Generation of Nanomanipulation

Topology optimisation is a powerful computerbased method for obtaining better mechanical designs… the algorithm does not care about engineer-aesthetics – yet the designs are strangely beautiful. The films shows a manipulation sequence where a carbon nanotube is broken off and transferred to a “TEM grid” – a sample suited for inspection with a Transmission Electron […]

Sensor Controller using PSoC

This video shows an environmental sensor controller using Programmable System-on-Chip technology to sample humidity, atmospheric pressure, and temperature. This project centers on an 8-bit Programmable-System-on-Chip (PSoC) microcontroller that manages a wireless transceiver based on Zigbee wireless networking (IEEE 802.15.4 Wireless Protocol), environmental sensors, and backup storage. The implementation of these components results in a system […]

Toward the World’s Smallest Radio

Toward the World’s Smallest Radio A graduate student of the University of California-Irvine demonstrates world’s first working version of a carbon nanotube radio system. A report on this amazing device appeared in Nano Letters, one of the American Chemical Society’s 36 peer-revewed scientific journals. This video was among supporting materials for the research paper. Peter […]

Dielectrophoresis Non Contact Manipulation

Non-contact manipulation is a way to perform micro-objets positioning without adhesion perturbations. This video shows a top view of a non contact micromanipulation using negative dielectrophoresis (DEP). The microgripper’s end-effectors are in silicon with gold electrodes, and the manipulated gl balls are around 20µm diameter. An alternative tension (20V p-p) is applied between electrodes on […]

DEP Dynamic release

During micromanipulations, release is disturbed by adhesion effects and negative dielectrophoresis (DEP) can be used to actively release the object. The video presents a top view of an active release. The microgripper’s end-effectors are in silicon with gold electrodes, and the handled ball is a 20µm gl ball. An alternative tension (20V p-p) is applied […]
