A poster/paper titled “Microassembly via Coordinated Manipulation of Objects Using a Multifingered Micromanipulator” authored by Dr. Saggere and his graduate student, Chris Pelzmann, won first place (out of over 150 posters/papers) in the ASME Society-Wide Micro & Nano Technology Forum competition at the 2011 ASME IMECE held in Denver, CO, earlier this week. This research is also expected to be featured in an upcoming issue of the ASME flagship magazine Mechanical Engineering (earlier publications on this research had previously received a wide media coverage in 2007 and a Best Paper award at another conference in 2009). The work is currently funded by the NSF Nanomanufacturing Program.
