Improved AFM Manipulation of Nano-Objects

IntroductionIn traditional atomic force microscope (AFM) based nano-manipulation systems, a cantilever is used as the probe tip to manipulate nano-sized objects. Because of the need for good contact with the object, a "pre-loaded" force must be exerted by the cantilever on the object, making it difficult for an operator to "feel"...

Real-time Nanomanipulation Using AFM

IntroductionAn efficient system for manipulation of nano-sized objects would be greatly aided by the ability of an operator to "feel" the objects he/she is manipulating.Description of TechnologyThe invention proposes an atomic force microscope (AFM) based Augmented Reality System consisting of an AFM connected to a haptic device allowing the...
