Challenges and Research Directions in Nonlinear Behavior and Their Controls of an Atomic Force Microscopy (Afm) Vibrating Systems

November 23, 9:00 AM -11:00 AM, Central Time 


Nowadays, Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) has become a useful tool for direct measurements of intermolecular forces with atomic precision. This microscope can be used in various fields such as semiconductors, manufacturing, polymeric materials, bio-analysis, biomaterials, and in the studying of metal surfaces. (AFM) robot is a powerful tool for nano-level evaluation, biomaterials diagnosis, nano description of materials and equipment, and assembly at nanoscale. (AFM)has a cantilever with a probe of a very fine tip, by which the information from the sample and tip interaction can be obtained. The accuracy of power estimation based on AFM measured information depends on the selected dynamic model for the cantilever. With its effect on the controlling system, dynamic system model directly affects the images resolution.

This symposium aims to creating a multidisciplinary forum of discussion on recent advances in nonlinear dynamics techniques and nonlinear control applied to engineering systems, as well as new development areas, that is, providing a forum for the discussion and dissemination of the latest approaches, methodologies results and current challenges in nonlinear vibrations- field of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) vibrating systems. We will deal with the goals: physical phenomena involved, adequate methodology to deal with them and a report of selected papers published recently, and in the past.

All papers will be peer-reviewed, and upon acceptance, they will be published in the special issue of an indexed journal Manuscripts . Manuscripts are solicited in topics including, but not limited to:

  • Nonlinear mathematical modeling of vibrating motion of nanomechanical cantilever active probe
  • Time, Series Analysis Generated by a Sensor of an (AFM)
  • Preventing Chaotic Motion in Tapping-Mode in (AFM) systems
  • Robustness of attractors in tapping mode in (AFM) systems
  • Attractors robustness and basins integrity of noncontact AFM)
  • Nonlinear dynamic behavior of (AFM) in trolling mode
  • (AFM) Nonlinear motion control with robustness analysis to parametric errors in the control signals
  • Dynamic analysis and Control of fractional (AFM) systems
  • Biological Applications of the AFM
