kouroush - doctoral defense - robotic instruments

We gladly announce, that yesterday June 10th, our Doctoral student Kourosh Latifi successfully defended his PhD thesis "Controlling the motion of particles on a vibrating plate using dynamic acoustic fields" in the field of Automation, Systems and Control Engineering.

Latifi's research definitely contributed to the know-how of the Robotic Instruments research group, and his work challenged two common beliefs related to Chladni’s experiment, and provided solid experimental evidence that the motion of particles on a vibrating plate is not random, and can be statistically predicted and controlled; also he experimentally demonstrated that heavy particles can move towards the antinodes of vibration on a vibrating plate.
