Design and modeling of carbon nanotube-based compliant mechanisms
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
The objective of this research is to generate the knowledge required to adapt macro- and microscale compliant mechanism theory to design carbon nanotube-based nano-scale compliant mechanisms. Molecular simulations of a ...
Concept synthesis and design optimization of meso-scale, multi-degree-of-freedom precision flexure motion systems with integrated strain-based sensors
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
The purpose of this research was to generate the knowledge required to 1) identify where and how to best place strain-based sensors in multi-degree-of-freedom (MDOF) flexure systems and 2) design a flexure system with ...
Design of a digitally actuated, micro-scale Cartesian nanopositioner
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
The purpose of this research is to generate the design knowledge required to produce a small-scale, low-cost precision positioning device. Accurate motion manipulation on the nanometer level is one of the main challenges ...
