— Robotic microhandling is a promising way to assemble microcomponents in order to manufacture new generation of Hybrid Micro ElectroMechanical Systems (HMEMS). However, at the scale of several micrometers, adhesion phenomenon highly perturbs the micro-objects release and the positioning. This phenomenon is directly linked to both the object and the gripper(More)
Mass-sensitive electro-acoustic devices such as surface acoustic wave (SAW) micro-balances, capable to operate with aqueous media are particularly favorable for the development of biosensors. Their dimensions and physical properties offer a large potential in biological fluid investigations, especially for measuring physical phenomenon (mass deposition,(More)
Robotic microhandling is disturbed by the adhesion phenomenon between the micro-object and the grippers. This phenomenon is directly linked to both the object and the gripper surface chemical composition. We propose to control adhesion by using chemical self-assembly monolayer (SAM) on both surfaces. Previous distance-force measurements done with AFM have(More)
