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 Microscope.
The grippers are designed and fabricated by Özlem Sardan, MIC – Dept of Micro and Nanotechnology, Tech. Univ of Denmark. The filming and nanorobotics were done by Volkmar Eichhorn, Oldenburg University.
