Part of the award-winning Manufacturing Insights video series, this program begins by highlighting the four stages of nanotechnology:
This foundation provides the context to explore the four primary approaches to building productive nanosystems. Two are top-down approaches:
Two are bottom-up approaches:
Take an inside-look at the research being doe at Nanorex, Inc. in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. Discover how these researchers are harnessing the structural and informational components of DNA to develop methods of altering molecules under programmable control to generate self-replicating productive nanosystems.
