Research expertise

Dr. Yong has made significant contributions to the research efforts in Mechatronics, particularly in nanopositioning and high-precision devices. She has exceptional skills in the design, modelling and control of flexure-based nanopositioners. She also has an extensive knowledge in the modelling of nanopositioners and smart structures using finite-element-software, in particular ANSYS.

Dr. Yong has been actively involved in research related to high-performance nanapositioners and AFMs. In 2005, she developed a 3 degree-of-freedom (DOF) micropositioner, which translates along the X and Y axes, and rotates about the Z axis for biological cell injections and Scanning Electron Microscopy applications. In 2006, a 5 DOF flexure-based micropositioner was designed and delivered to the National Taiwan University for aligning optical fibers and lasers. A XY flexure-based nanopositioner was designed and fabricated for fast nanoscale positioning in 2007. Her contributions in the innovative design and control techniques of the XY nanopositioner were recognized when her article "Design, Analysis and Control of a Fast Nanopositioning Stage", was selected for the Best Conference Paper Finalist Award.

An example of Dr. Yong's contribution to the aforementioned research field can be seen in "Video-Rate Lissajous-Scan Atomic Force Microscopy" IEEE Trans. Nanotechnology, 13(1), 2014. This paper presents a novel scanning method for capturing Atomic Force Microscopy images in video speeds. Dr. Yong and her co-workers were the first to successfully utilise such scanning trajectory for video-rate AFM.

Another example of Dr. Yong innovative research work can be seem in "Simultaneous sensing and actuation with a piezoelectric tube scanner" Review of Scientific Instruments, 79, 2008. Dr. Yong and her co-worker were involved in the design and control of a novel 12-electrode piezoelectric tube nanopositioner for simultaneous actuations and sensing. The piezoelectric tube nanopositioner was successfully installed into an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) and high quality images were produced. The research paper arising from this research project was the first paper documenting the success of such a nanopositioner for accurate and fast AFM imaging.

SUMMARY OF DR. YONG'S RESEARCH PROJECTS:

PIEZOELECTRIC STRAIN SENSOR

Piezoelectric sensors have the benefit of simple interface circuitry, low cost, high sensitivity, and high bandwidth. Although piezoelectric sensors have been successfully used as vibration sensors in smart structures, complications arise when they are used in a feedback loop for tracking. As piezoelectric strain sensors exhibit a capacitive source impedance, a high-pass filter is created, typically with a cut-off frequency of 1 to 10 Hz. This filter can cause significant errors and destabilize a tracking control system. Here, this problem is overcame by using a low-frequency bypass technique to replace the low-frequency component of the strain measurement with an estimate based on the open-loop system.

HIGH-SPEED NON-RASTER AFM SCANNING

A traditional Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) utilizes a scanner to scan over an area of a sample in a zig-zag raster pattern. The fast axis of the AFM scanner is forced to track the non-smooth triangular waveform that contains frequencies beyond the scanner's mechanical bandwidth. The high-order dynamics of the triangular waveform tends to trigger the resonance frequencies of the scanner. This leads to image distortions. In this project, novel smooth scan patterns are proposed to achieve much higher speed scans than a raster pattern without triggering the dynamics of the scanner.

FLEXURE-BASED NANOPOSITIONERS

The design of the flexure-based nanopositioning stage is based on the concept of flexible mechanisms (flexures) where motions are generated through the elastic deformation of the structures. There are no moving and sliding joints; therefore, the problems of wear, backlash, friction and the
