    The atomic force microscope (AFM) [1] is a mechanical microscope capable of producing three-dimensional images of a wide variety of sample surfaces with nanometer precision in air, vacuum, or liquid environments. This article provides an overview of the AFM and its three main modes of operation, with a focus on the tapping mode of operation. The challenges associated with obtaining high-speed imag...

    Since its birth in the 1980s, nanotechnology has significantly advanced our understanding and control of physical processes on the nanometer and subnanometer scale. Manipulation and interrogation of matter on these length scales have become indispensable in various fields of engineering and science and have been instrumental in some of the most exciting scientific and engineering breakthroughs of ...

    This article focuses on the design and control of nanopo-sitioning systems (nanoposi-tioners) that operate mostly in a repetitive fashion. In addition to accuracy, speed is also a crucial requirement for these systems. Multi-axis nanopositioners are critical in applications such as atomic force microscopy (AFM) [1], fiber optic alignment [2], micro- and nanoma-chining [3], [4], and nanometrology [...

    Atomic force microscopy (AFM) was invented in 1986 [1]. By using a compliant flexure probe, such as a microcantilever beam with a sharp tip at one end, the interaction forces between atoms on the probe-tip and atoms on the material surface can be measured (see Figure 1). Since its invention, the simple strategy of using a beam with a sharp tip is now being employed to measure many diverse properti... View full abstract»

    Although navigation control has been applied in a multitude of environments, relatively little is known about the challenges and issues of navigation control in the vascular network. In an adult human, the vascular network consists of nearly 100,000 km of blood vessels, with diameters ranging from a few millimeters in the artery to just a few micrometers in the capillaries, and blood flow rates ra...

    Some tricks and tips on the usage of Matlab were provided in the August 2013 issue of IEEE Control Systems Magazine [1]. This column gives an example in which application of two tips speeds up a Matlab program by orders of magnitude. The example can be used to teach control engineering students the importance of following the two tips but also, more generally, the importance of implementation deta... View full abstract»
