Dong Research Lab

Nanomanufacturing and Biomedical Manufacturing

@ Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, North Carolina State University








Nanomanufacturing and Biomedical Manufacturing Laboratory focuses on the innovation of novel manufacturing processes, manufacturing systems and tools, and modeling and optimization of the manufacturing processes and systems for advanced nanomanufacturing and biomedical manufacturing applications. Our recent projects include tip-based high rate nanomachining, multi-scale fabrication of tissue engineering scaffolds, high-bandwidth nanopositioning system, MEMS-scale nanomanufacturing devices, process modeling and optimization for nano-material synthesis.
