Advances in Reconfigurable Mechanisms and Robots II by Xilun Ding, Xianwen Kong, Jian S. Dai

By Xilun Ding, Xianwen Kong, Jian S. Dai

This booklet provides the latest advances within the examine and purposes of reconfigurable mechanisms and robots. It collects ninety three independently reviewed papers awarded on the 3rd ASME/IFToMM overseas convention on Reconfigurable Mechanisms and Robots (ReMAR 2015) held in Beijing, China, 20-22 July 2015.

The convention papers are equipped into seven elements to hide the reconfiguration conception, topology, kinematics and layout of reconfigurable mechanisms together with reconfigurable parallel mechanisms. the newest effects on reconfigurable robots are offered together with their research, layout, simulation and keep watch over. Bio-inspired mechanisms also are explored within the demanding fields of rehabilitation and minimally invasive surgical procedure. This ebook extra addresses deployable mechanisms and origami-inspired mechanisms and showcases quite a lot of profitable purposes of reconfigurable mechanisms and robots.

Probing the Response of Two-Dimensional Crystals by Optical by Yilei Li

By Yilei Li

This thesis specializes in the examine of the optical reaction of recent atomically skinny two-dimensional crystals, largely the family members of transition steel dichalcogenides like MoS2. One valuable subject of the thesis is definitely the right remedy of the linear and second-order nonlinear optical susceptibilities of atomically skinny transition steel dichalcogenides. as well as their major clinical curiosity as basic fabric responses, those experiences supply crucial wisdom and handy characterization instruments for the applying of those second fabrics in opto-electronic units. one other vital subject matter of the thesis is the valley physics of atomically skinny transition steel dichalcogenides. it really is proven that the degeneracy within the valley measure of freedom will be lifted and a valley polarization may be created utilizing a magnetic box, which breaks time reversal symmetry in those fabrics. those findings increase our easy figuring out of the valley digital states and open up new possibilities for valleytronic purposes utilizing two-dimensional materials.
