In this paper, an interactive virtual environment for nanomanipulation is developed. The technique for nanomanipulation visualization is based on molecular dynamics simulation and virtual reality. Using the developed interactive virtual environment for the intuitive nanomanipulation visualization, the operator can characterize and control the behavior of nanoparticles in the virtual SPM through physical simulation and 3D visualization.
