Abstract

This paper presents the design of a new tool for 3D manipulations at micro and nanoscale based on the coupling between a high performance haptic system (the ERGOS system) and two Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) probes mounted on quartz tuning fork resonators, acting as a nano tweezers. This unique combination provides new characteristics and possibilities for the localization and manipulation of (sub)micronic objects in 3 dimensions. The nano robot is controlled through a dual sensorial interface including 3D haptic and visual rendering, it is capable of performing a number of real-time tasks on different samples in order to analyse their dynamic effects when interacting with the AFM tips. The goal is then to be able to compare mechanical properties of different matters (stiffness of soft or hard matter) and to handle submicronic objects in 3 dimensions.
