  • 3D viewpoint selection and bilateral control for bio-micromanipulation

    A need has arisen to manipulate a small biological object, such as an embryo, cell, and microbe. Bio-micromanipulation is important for biology and the bioengineering field. However, it is very difficult, since the object is very small, kept in liquid, and observed by an optical microscope. The image of the microscope is two dimensional, so it is hard to manipulate the target in 3D space. The object is fragile, so it is hard to manipulate safely. To improve the manipulation works, the authors propose the viewpoint selection method in VR space, and a bilateral control system to improve manipulation of the micro object under the microscope.

  • Dynamic analysis of a no-coupling and large stroke two-dimension micro-stage

    Compliant micro-stage is the key component of the micromanipulator equipments and its dynamic performance can seriously affect the micromanipulator's kinematic and positioning accuracy. This paper proposed a two-dimension micro- stage based on bridge type amplification mechanism and U-type parallel guiding mechanism using the nesting structure and right angle flexure hinge. According to the structure characteristic of micro-stage, the dynamic model of one dimension stage is built, the stiffness performance of amplification mechanism is analyzed using the 1/4 model of bridge type amplification mechanism and the stiffness performance of U-type parallel guiding mechanism using the guiding cantilever beam theory. And on those bases, frequency response of the micro- stage can be obtained. Then, an impact experiment is carried out to test the micro-stage's frequency response. The effect of supporting mechanism and the sensor mass to the frequency response of the micro-stage, and the error between theory and experiment is analyzed. The experiment results proved the correctness and effectiveness of theory model.

  • Design and Analysis of a New Type of Spatial Flexible Micromanipulation Platform

    A novel type of spatial flexible micromanipulator is designed based on flexure hinges, which can realize the translational motion along the Z axis and rotations around X and Y axes. During the design, we use the bridge displacement amplifier as translational pairs to drive platform movement, with a flexure hinges instead of the traditional hinges. The magnification ratio of the bridge displacement amplifier is calculated by the method of the elastic analysis with consideration of rotational and translational stiffness. The simulation and analysis are carried out with ANSYS Workbench. The theoretical calculation and simulation error are 8.77%. The micro-operation platform is analyzed by static simulation and modal analysis. The results show that the micromanipulator has a large working space and strong anti - interference ability, with a fast dynamic response speed.

  • Prototyping design and automation of micro/nano manipulation system

    The micro/nano manipulation is the key technology to produce an integrated system as well as to examine the micro/nano world. For example, the micro/nano manipulation is needed for assembly and maintenance of the micro machines and their parts. It is also important for biology and bio-engineering field to explore the micro/nano world. The micro/nano manipulation is classified into the contact type and the non-contact type based on the manipulation method. The manipulation method and system depend on the manipulation environment and the observation system. System design and control methods are completely different depending on the size of the object and the manipulation environment. Here we present highlights on-going research works on the prototyping of the micro/nano manipulation system.

  • Micro tri-axial force sensor for 3D bio-micromanipulation

    It is important to manipulate a biological small object, such as a cell and embryo. Three-dimensional high speed micromanipulation is needed as a fundamental technology for biology and bio-engineering application. In this paper, we focus on the contact type micromanipulation in the liquid. We designed and made a contact type micromanipulation system which has a 3-DOF narrow range positioning system on a 3-DOF wide range positioning system. We developed a micro tri-axial force sensor which can be installed near the tip of the end effector. Performance of this micro-force sensor is presented.

  • Study of micromanipulation using stereoscopic microscope

    In this paper, we describe a visual feedback system using a stereoscopic microscope that controls a micromanipulator so that a needle may pierce a target as much length as desired. At first, for achieving the manipulation at a realistic rate, we proposed a strategy of moving the needle head. Secondarily, we developed an algorithm for prediction of the tip position of the needle head within the target. Before the needle pierces the target, the shape of the needle head is preserved as a reference pattern. After the needle piercing the target, the shape of the needle head within the target is predicted using the reference pattern and the tip position of the needle head can be detected. Experimental results indicate that the proposed system may be useful in micromanipulation such as microinjection to seeds.

  • Microoperation characteristic evaluation of a human scale tele-operating system

    In the medical field and in biotechnology applications, a new type of human scale teleoperating system that can carry out three-dimensional high-speed micromanipulation is urgently required. In this paper, we deal with a human scale teleoperating system. In order to operate microobject in human scale, the working table and micromanipulator with multi-DOF are demanded to be developed. So we propose a macro/micro mechanism for the system. Firstly, we design a precision parallel micromechanism with 6-DOF (10 /spl mu/m Moving Range, 10 nm Resolving Power), and compose the macro/micro mechanism. Then, we also did the complex control for the macro/micro mechanism. The experimental results indicate that the proposed Macro/micro mechanism can be controlled by teleoperation, and it is very useful for human scale microopeeration system.

  • Manipulation of the universal rotational mechanism for biological application

    Recently, in the potential application of biological and micro-nano technology, there are increasing demands in areas such as bio-cell manipulation and micro fabrication at the micron or nano scale. However, it is very difficult to carry out direct micro manipulations. In contrast to microscopic working procedures, which permit free manipulation of objects with the both hands, microscopic working procedures that permit free manipulation of objects with the both hands, microscopic working procedures involve the observation and manipulation of the object within a very small area under a scanning electron microscope. We are currently developing a manipulation system of biological tissue and cell engineering. For such applications, we need to ascertain the presence of various fungi, bacilli, etc. on an object and approach any point of the object from any direction. To achieve the desired operation, we have developed a proto-type of a two-arm micromanipulator mounted on a rotary table around any given point on an object, allowing biological objects to be approached from any direction. The manipulation system is further comprised of a twin-arm manipulator mounted on a rotary table and a specimen stage. Each arm comes with three actuators superimposed one on the top of the other in order to move along the XYZ axial direction. The manipulator is driven by PZT actuators with magnifier elements and able to cover an envelop as wide as 200 /spl mu/m for each axis of X, Y and Z. The rotary table is supported by a pair of rollers set perpendicularly and driven by DC motor. The attitude of the roller pair is adjustable within three-degrees by the PZT actuators together with parallel plate magnifiers. In this paper, we investigate the need for a mechanism that permits controlled rotation around the principles of motion of our micromanipulation system, and the results of basic experiments with the system.

  • Transistor Forming Effects in n-Type Germanium

    Some of the effects of electrical forming of the collector of an n-type germanium transistor are discussed. Evidence is presented for the existence of a region of p-type germanium underneath the formed electrode, together with some indication of the size of the formed region. These experiments lend support to the p-n hook mechanism in that they explain the observed high values of alpha in transistors. This relation is discussed.
