We are in the technological era and advances never cease to amaze us! Today we can optimize the distribution of material in a design space thanks to an algorithm. We can also reconstruct 3D surfaces thanks to robots and microscopes. Do you want to know how? Come and join us at this event for English speakers!

Topology optimization is a computational method that seeks to find the optimal distribution of materials in a given design domain to achieve desired mechanical or physical properties. The process involves iteratively removing material from the design space while preserving its structural integrity and performance. By allowing for the use of multiple materials, designers can achieve superior performance while minimising the overall weight of the final product. This approach has applications in various fields such as aerospace, automotive and biomedical engineering.
3D surface reconstruction of micro-objects.
Yucely Beb Caal (PhD student researcher)
This project presents a technique for complete 3D reconstruction of micro-scale objects (20um-35um) manipulated by a robot and using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to obtain 2D images. A three-dimensional model enables the development of accurate solutions to have more information about thickness, texture, and characteristics of small-size samples for education and metrology applications.
