The objective of this project was to calibrate a commercially available force feedback joystick that could be used for the control of a laser beam optical tweezers test-bed. A calibration box was built to hold the joystick and the load-cell. The joystick handle was restrained by springs under tension and the handle force was measured by a single axis load-cell. The calibration is done by measuring the forces generated by the joystick handle in the X and Y axes in response to controller command signals.
