Kuniaki Nagayama recorded in 1997. Biology operates at two levels: the large scale which we can see and the underlying microscopic one. The amazing way in which intermolecular forces cause protein arrays to self-assemble, enabling Nature to fabricate the large scale components of living systems is described.
With each new generation of semiconductor device, the critical dimension of electronic structures shrink, requiring new manufacturing systems and new capabilities, such as the ability to apply thin-films atom-by-atom. The solution lies in nanomanufacturing technology, the combination of an innovative use of materials with the practical concept of high-volume precision manufacturing. This production is a high-level review of nanotechnology.
