LWL22: Nanostructure-Based Nanoactuator


This project aims to develop nanoactautors based on the actuation of nanostructures such as nanowires and/or nanotubes. With the emerging technology of producing silicon nanowires and carbon nanotubes (CNTs), designing an actuation application would be the next advancement of nanotechnology. This nano actuator will be fabricated by the in-house produced silicon nanowires/carbon nanotubes. Additional processing steps and actuation means will be required to manifest the nanostructures for actuation demonstrations. We intend to investigate related design, process and material issues to demonstrate working nanoactautors based on the operation of nanostructures.
