The handling of micro- and nanoscale objects with an accuracy in the nanometer range is an important current trend in robotics. It is often referred to as nanohandling and is primarily understood as manipulation of objects, which may include their finding, grasping, moving, tracking, releasing, positioning, pushing, pulling, cutting, bending, twisting, etc. Automated nanohandling is one of the key challenges of microsystem technology and nanotechnology. It will enable high-throughput manufacturing of novel products and open up new application fields. Current research work in AMiR includes, amongst others, the development of new nanohandling 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 his Division’s current research work on these topics as well as the research projects and applications being pursued. They include automated nanoassembly of AFM supertips inside SEM, handling and characterization of carbon nanotubes (CNT), electron beam induced deposition (EBiD) as a bonding and nanostructuring technology, automation issues in AFM-based nanohandling, characterization of biological objects by AFM/nanorobots, and others.
WANG Zuobin, BSc, MSc, PhD, is Professor and Director of the Centre for Nano Metrology and Manufacturing Technologies, Changchun University of Science and Technology (CUST); Deputy Director of the International Joint Research Centre for Nanophotonics and Biophotonics (IJRCNB) with the Institute for Lasers, Photonics, and Biophotonics (ILPB), USA; Professor of the University of Bedfordshire (UOB), UK; Deputy Director of the Joint Research Centre for Computer-controlled Nanomanufacturing with UOB; Founding Chair of International Conference 3M-NANO (www.3M-NANO.org).He received his PhD in Optical Interferometry from the Centre for Microengineering and Nanotechnology, University of Warwick (UK) in 1997, sponsored by the Sino-British Friendship Scholarship Scheme (SBFSS). Since then, he had been a senior research fellow/project manager at the Manufacturing Engineering Centre of Cardiff University (UK), and involved in a number of EU projects. As the originator, he brought in five EU projects and one British-German collaboration (ARC) project for the centre during the EU FP6 period, having experience in coordinating/leading the FP6 STREP project DELILA, IP project HYDROMEL (Subproject leader) and CA project IPMMAN (PI). His research interest is in the areas of laser interference nanolithography, nanometrology, and robotic nanomanufacturing. In 2009, he was honoured as one of the first 23 “High-level overseas creative and innovative talents” by the Government of Jilin Province, China. He is the leader of seven research projects, and the originator of two EU FP7 LaserNaMi and ECNANOMAN projects.
