Creating nano-robotic applications

man with glassesLixin Dong, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, is studying the nano-robotic manipulation of helical nanobelts. Helical nanobelt manipulation permits the interconversion of linear to rotary or rotary to linear motion on the nanoscale. Dong leads the Nano-Robotic Systems Lab, which also conducts work on nano-photonics and ano-fluidics.

Examples include the robotic atomic force microscope system, which will ultimately enable identification and stimulation of single receptors on the cell membrane; nanoparticles carrying genetic material, protein, or therapeutic agents for targeted and enhanced delivery for molecular interventions; and the biosensor array system for continuous, real time, and in-situ measurement of hormone/neuropeptide concentrations.
