The Laboratory for Dynamics and Control of Nanosystems (LDCN) is a multi-million dollar state of the art research facility dedicated to the advancement of nanotechnology through innovations in systems theory and control engineering. The main thrust of research in the Laboratory is to develop methodologies, technologies and the necessary instrumentation for fast and accurate interrogation and manipulation of matter at the nanoscale. The LDCN's multidisciplinary research team pursues a dynamic and active research programme that maintains a solid systems and control focus on a variety of emerging applications in nanotechnology.
