, 165, 189-193 (2011). In this paper, we report fiber optics sensor with sub-nanometric resolution and wide bandwidth. It relies on an increase of the reception fibers number and on low-noise electronics. Moreover, a reference channel has been implemented using a semi-reflective plate to eliminate the source fluctuations and the fiber sensor was isolated to(More)
This paper presents a novel tool for the analysis of new molecular structures which enables a wide variety of manipulations. It is composed of a molecular simulator and a haptic device. The simulation software deals with systems of hundreds or thousands of degrees of freedom and computes the reconfiguration of the molecules in a few tenths of a second. For(More)
This paper presents a force feedback control scheme for the compensation of periodic motions of organs induced by respiration or heartbeat in minimally invasive robotized surgery. It applies surgical tasks involving a contact between an instrument and a moving organ. It is well known that conventional force control allows for compensating the motion of the(More)

In this paper, a new tool dedicated to the analysis and the conception of molecules is presented. It is composed of an adaptive simulation software and a haptic device used to interact with molecules while feeling either the forces applied by the environment or the internal forces. The adaptive articulated body algorithm allows fast simulations of complex(More)
The last couple of years, the vehicle industry tends to increase the performance of lights based on led technologies. Nowadays, led systems are used as a standard by motor vehicles manufacturers. Led lights present higher reliability and are more flexible regarding design or power adjustments. Furthermore, led systems are also very convenient for intensity(More)
The proposed robotic system provides the surgeon with an augmented sensation of the interaction forces between the instrument and the organ. Such a system aims at increasing the surgeon's dexterity for tasks requiring that only small forces be applied on the organ (eg. for micro-surgery). In the proposed setup, the surgeon manipulates a handle mounted on(More)
In this paper, force control is proposed to connect a molecular simulator to a haptic device. Most of the works dealing with this kind of simulators use position control to manipulate the molecules, with major stability concerns. These two control modes are compared in terms of adequacy with the molecular simulator. Stability with respect to the scaling(More)
This paper presents a 2D teleoperation task at microscales with force feedback. At this scale, two major problems arise while performing manipulation tasks: the lack of 3D real time visual feedback, and the difficulty to determine the interaction forces. Therefore, indications must be provided to help the user perform a given task. In this paper, we provide(More)
