Micro and nanosystems represent a major scientific and technological challenge, with actual and potential applications in almost all fields of the human activity. The aim of the present book is to present how concepts from dynamical control systems (modeling, estimation, observation, identification, feedback control) can be adapted and applied to the development of original very small-scale systems and of their human interfaces. The application fields presented here come from micro and nanorobotics, biochips, near-field microscopy (AFM and STM) and nanosystems networks. Alina Voda has drawn contributions from leading experts at top research universities in France to produce a first overview of the major role that control systems science can play in the development of micro and nanosciences and technologies.

    significant progress

    The chapters show how far the field has progressed since the 1980s and the first generation of Atomic Force Microscopes. Now the modelling of the forces experienced on the atomic scale of a surface is quite sophisticated and quantitative. The text describes how current AFMs can measure forces in the sub-nanoNewton range.

    Various experimental configurations are summarised, with enough detail given for the reader to understand the salient features. Much of the physics is classical, including references to results in statistical physics that are used to derive functions for noise.

    Perhaps most interesting to some readers will be the section on the teleoperation of a micromanipulator, where, and this is the key point, there is multisensory feedback. Virtual reality is used to aid the operator, and the hardware includes a haptic interface that delivers the feedback. The amount of virtual immersion is varied, in an effort to see what minimal amount would suffice to let the operator do useful work. The experiments are very promising, especially in how they appear to let the operator use less mental effort, and thus be able to work for longer times with a manipulator.
