Dynamic Simulation Of Manipulation Of Cylindrical Nano Particles With The Use Of AFM Based Nano Robot
With the extensive use of the Atomic Force Microscope as a tool for nano assembly and the inability to real time
monitoring, the use of computer simulation to predict the process of nanoparticles displacement has become the focus of
attention. In transferring cylindrical nanoparticles, three modes of sliding, rolling and spinning can be observed. In this
research, by investigating the forces applied on a nanoparticle and considering the contact forces, a model has been presented
that simulate dynamic of the process. An algorithm for predicting the movement of a nanoparticle on a substrate has been
introduced. The results presented in this paper have been validated by comparing them with the simulation results. By using
the presented model, the movement path can be predicted with regards to all the effective parameters, and a controlled
displacement of a target nanoparticle can be implemented using the presented model.
