Robot-Based Nanohandling and Automation on the Nanoscale

October 12, 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Wat. 112

UHM Seminar on Atomic and Solid State Physics: Prof. Sergej Fatikow, Head, Division for Microrobotics & Control Engineering (AMiR), University of Oldenburg, Germany; and, Head, Technology Cluster Automated Nanohandling Research Center, OFFIS, Germany to speak on "Robot-Based Nanohandling and Automation on the Nanoscale."

Current research activities in AMiR include, amongst others, the development of new nano-handling robots; the investigation of novel automated nanohandling strategies; the development of advanced control methods; as well as the investigation of suitable real-time sensing technologies on the nanoscale. In his talk, Prof. Fatikow introduces main approaches for handling objects on the nanoscale. He especially addresses his current work of an automated robot-based nanohandling station inside a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The latter serves as a powerful vision sensor and a work space for nanohandling robots integrated into the vacuum chamber and equipped with application-specific tools. Different research aspects of this work regarding the implementation of the main system components – the piezo-driven nanohandling robots, the control system, the vision-feedback approaches, and the force/tactile sensors – are discussed. Finally, current research projects and applications being pursued in AMiR are outlined. They include automated nanoassembly of AFM supertips inside SEM, handling and characterization of carbon nanotubes and graphene flakes, electron beam induced deposition as a bonding and nanostructuring technology, automation issues in AFM-based nanohandling, characterization of biological objects by AFM/nanorobots, and others.
