As a part of the NOMI program, Sasan Keyvani (full name: Aliasghar Keyvani Janbahan) is busy with the fundamental understanding of the dynamics of the Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) with the aim of increasing the speed and reliability of AFM. His research mainly is focused on designing, modeling and identification of cantilever, estimating the nonlinear tip-sample interactions, and designing new control algorithms for operation of AFM. Sasan has filed two patent applications regarding the operation of AFM and has published more than 20 journal and conference papers.
Sasan is a Mechanical Engineer specialized in Dynamics and Control of micro-nano systems. He got his bachelor degree in mechanical engineering in 2009 from Urmia University and his master dregree from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Tabriz. He finished his master dissertation in September 2012 on modeling of microelectromechanical filters for high-frequency telecommunication applications. He did his master project partly in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering where he developed system based methods for modeling of mixed electrical and mechanical systems.
From April 2013 until June 2017 Sasan was a Ph.D. student in the Department of Precision and Microsystems Engineering at TU Delft, and he was already working in NOMI group as a part-time guest researcher.
