Professor Moheimani will be presenting a plenary lecture at ACODS 2018, IFAC International Conference on Advances in Control and Optimization of Dynamical Systems. The conference will be held on February 18-22, 2018 in Hyderabad, India. The talk will be concerned with the LDCN’s work on control system design for atomically precise manufacturing (APM).
LDCN’s recent development of a silicon-on-insulator MEMS-based atomic force microscope has recently been featured in IEEE Spectrum in the article New Paradigm in Microscopy: Atomic Force Microscope on a Chip. The article highlights the group’s latest results from their ongoing research in on-chip atomic force microscopy, which has led to the development of a single-chip MEMS device designed for tapping-mode AFM that features an in-plane scanner and an integrated microcantilever with piezoelectric actuation and sensing. Further details about the on-chip AFM are reported in IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems.
Professor Reza Moheimani has been invited to present a plenary talk at ICCAS 2017, the 17th International Conference on Control, Automation and Systems. The conference will be held on October 18-21, 2017 in Jeju, Korea. The plenary talk will focus on LDCN’s ongoing research in on-chip atomic force microscopy, with further details being available here.
At the invitation of LDCN, a number of control systems experts will visit UT Dallas this fall. The first visitor will be Professor Richard Braatz (MIT), who will present a seminar at UT Dallas on September 19.
Other visitors who are scheduled to visit this fall include:
- Professor Santosh Devasia (UW)
- Professor Murti Salapaka (UMN)
- Professor Robert Skelton (TAMU)
- Professor David Trumper (MIT)
LDCN was pleased to invite Professor Graham Goodwin from The University of Newcastle, Australia, as a visitor to UT Dallas during summer. An internationally renowned expert in the field of control systems, Professor Goodwin presented a seminar titled Sampled-Data Models for Control, which was well received by student and faculty members of the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.
