The Nano Manipulation Method and Application Research Innovation Team were approved by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) to go on trial in 2008. It officially entered operation stage in 2009. Seven overseas experts and seven domestic experts constituted the core members of the team, which was chaired by researcher Wang Yuechao. Under the theme of nano manipulation method and application research, the team conducted interdisciplinary research and achieved significant research progress in nano manipulation theory method research, nano manipulation technology application research and nano science experiment equipment development.
The final stage evaluation conference for the project was held in Shenyang Institute of Automation (SIA), CAS on March 8, 2013. Organized by the High Technology Research and Development Bureau of CAS, nine experts checked the implementation and results of the project, and approved its acceptance.
