Item description for Foundations of Ultra-Precision Mechanism Design (Developments in Nanotechnology, Vol 2) by S. T. Smith & D. G. Chetwynd...

The realm of ultraprecise mechanisms, for example in controlling motion to small fractions of a micrometer, is encroaching rapidly into many fields of technology. This book provides a bridge for those moving from either an engineering or physics background towards the unique challenges offered by ultraprecision mechanisms. Using case study examples this book provides a guide to basic techniques and gives vital technical, analytical and practical information.
S.T. Smith and D.J. Chetwynd are both at the Department of Engineering, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK

Reviews - What do customers think about Foundations of Ultra-Precision Mechanism Design (Developments in Nanotechnology, Vol 2)?

excelent primer on STM/AFM design fundamentals  Jul 21, 1998
Smith & Chetwynd's book covers many of the fundamental design considerations for ultraprecision devices. This is done from a physiscist's perspective starting with a discussion of the basis for simple beam ananlysis. It proceeds through optimal constraint and flexure design, along with actuator and detector selection. Simplified design examples are included. Finally, a selection of construction materials along with their physical properties are presented, along with a discussion of optimization on that basis.
