Abstract : This paper describes a new method of teaching and experimenting nanophysics effects using a nanomnipulator. This nano-manipulator is formed by a multi-sensory platform connected to an AFM and/or to virtual nano-scenes produced by a real-time simulator. The first objective of this work is the evaluation of a custom-made nanomanipulator compared to the use of a classical Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) interface. These instruments are used to teach one-dimensional nano-physical phenomenon, the approach-retract (AR) one, to university students at master level. The second objective is to determine the role of each sensorial rendering (force, visual and sound) and their combination, in the understanding process of the AR phenomenon. These two objectives have been evaluated quantitatively and qualitatively by analysing student practical work reports.
