Nano robotic for assembly caracterisation (NANORAC) - Publishable Executive Summary

Project ID: 13680
Funded under: FP6-NMP


NANORAC (Nano-robotics for assembly characterisation) is a 3 year STREP project that tackles the characterisation and manipulation of nano-objects by developing a robotic system suited to untrained operators. The concept is applicable to all kinds of nano-scale objects, but focuses on carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Its essential goal is to perform characterisation (of the nano-object geometrical, mechanical and electrical properties), sorting and assembly tasks. These are basically pick-up and release tasks. The project has started on 1st May 2005 with 6 partners: CEA-List (F) as coordinator, University of Oldenburg (D), University of Cambridge (UK), Denmark Technical University (DK), Paris VI University (F) and Nascatec, a German SME. The EC support amounts to 1 350 000 EUR
