Figure 1. Snapshots of a nanotube capping process with the adaptive interactive modeler. Thanks to the adaptive methodology, this operation can be done in a few minutes.

In general, we want to develop methods to ease nano-engineering of artificial nanosystems, such as the ones described above (DNA nanotechnology, nano-mechanisms, etc.). We have shown, for example, that our incremental and adaptive algorithms allow us to easily edit and model complex shapes, such as a nanotube (Fig. 1) and the “nano-pillow” below (Fig. 2). Please read more about the SAMSON software platform for more examples.
