Nanoparticle clumps recycle themselves into complex structures

Manufacturers produce high-end technology mostly top-down with large machinery, but small particles are able to build structures by themselves from the bottom up. A major challenge is that these particles easily clump together. Physicists have developed a method to use this phenomenon to their advantage.
