CCMR 2017 Annual Symposium

Atomic Origami: A Technology Platform for Nanoscale Machines, Sensors and Robots

Join Advanced Design Consulting, Dow, Corning, GE, Golden Artists, Pall Corporation, Sony, ThermoFisher, and more to learn about origami-inspired techniques!

Recent innovations in materials science are extending the design of devices—sensors, stimulators, and actuators—to the millimeter and even micron domains, revealing and influencing complex behaviors that span multiple length scales.Elegant and complex 3D structures can be generated from 2D starting materials—atomic membranes. These mm-scale 3D structures with lateral features spanning them to nm scales can be integrated with electronics, optics, and chemical sensing, and significantly advance the state-of-the-art in the fields of electronics, robotics, and medical diagnostics.

A one-day Symposium (June 16) will be followed by a morning workshop on June 17, 2017. The Saturday June 17 workshop is open to speakers, industry attendees, faculty and select students.  Two breakout sessions will respectively focus on industry applications in various industry sectors, and on establishing a road map from proof of concept, enabling technologies, and new materials to products.

Sproull lecture – Origami Design for Static Structures and Dynamic Mechanisms, Dr. Robert J. Lang, Robert Lang Origami.
