Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) has been used to study the chiral molecules (R)/(S)-2-bromohexadecanoic acid at the liquid/solid interface. When adsorbed onto the basal plane of graphite, these molecules segregate on the surface into domains of pure R or S enantiomers. The atomic resolution obtained in the STM images of these species allows a direct(More)
The quotient space theory obtains a fusion model about semi-order structure under the condition of consistency information, harnessing topology relation among elements of the universe space and hierarchical structure. It has great significance to forming a unified theory structure about information fusion technology. This paper gets a new semi-order(More)
Origami-based design holds promise for developing new mechanical metamaterials whose overall kinematic and mechanical properties can be programmed using purely geometric criteria. In this article, we demonstrate that the deformation of a generic degree-four vertex (4-vertex) origami cell is a combination of contracting, shearing, bending, and facet-binding.(More)
In this paper, a fusion model of weighted semi-order spaces is presented as well as the quotient space approachability theorem basing on measure space is proved. Fusion theory is not only concerned with information fusion, but with space structure that topology relation among elements on the space exists. We consider inductive reasoning basing on(More)
This research proposes a new approach for the control of metameric robot locomotion via phase coordination. Unlike previous studies where global wave-like rules were pre-specified to construct the actuation sequence of segments, this phase coordination method generates robot locomotion by assigning the actuation phase differences between adjacent segments(More)
Origami-inspired structures and materials have shown extraordinary properties and performances originating from the intricate geometries of folding. However, current state of the art studies have mostly focused on static and quasistatic characteristics. This research performs a comprehensive experimental and analytical study on the dynamics of origami(More)
A generic degree-4 vertex (4-vertex) origami possesses one continuous degree-of-freedom for rigid folding, and this folding process can be stopped when two of its facets bind together. Such facet-binding will induce self-locking so that the overall structure stays at a pre-specified configuration without additional locking elements or actuators.(More)
Inspired by the morphology characteristics of the earthworms and the excellent deformability of origami structures, this research creates a novel earthworm-like locomotion robot through exploiting the origami techniques. In this innovation, appropriate actuation mechanisms are incorporated with origami ball structures into the earthworm-like robot 'body',(More)
