Clarion University will present a demonstration of miBot manipulators during a workshop from 1 to 3 p.m. June 25 in the Joseph P. Grunenwald Center for Science and Technology, room 147. All are welcome.
Nanomanipulation has become both necessary and more common in the past few years. Positioning, measuring and orienting micro- and nano-scale structures in optical and electron microscopes is now a necessity in most new materials and microelectronics research facilities.
The miBot nanomanipulators by Imina Technologies are making these operations tremendously quick and easy to carry out. Based on a novel concept of motion, the miBot’s displacements are highly precise (down to the nanometer) and very easy to control, thus reducing the risk of sample damage. The miBot platform is quickly interfaced with most optical and electron microscopes, allowing the operator to rapidly deploy the manipulators when and where needed.
The workshop will give an overview of the main applications where miBot systems are used, followed by a demonstration of the miBot system in action. There will be time for questions.
Clarion University is the high-achieving, nationally recognized, comprehensive university that delivers a personal and challenging academic experience.
