The design and manufacture of miniature devices have been increasing in both research laboratories and industry. The sizes of the devices continue to decrease to the nanometer scale. At the same time, the complexity of those devices has increased. To achieve the desired functionality, different materials are required for making different components. Consequently, micro and nano-assembly has to be performed. A micro and nano-assembly system using optical tweezers has been developed. This paper describes an information framework for a nano-assembly system. The framework contains the following components: a use-case model, component model, activity model, class diagram and interaction model. These components are all described using the Unified Modeling Language. An initial implementation based on this framework is presented and discussed. Authors: Shaw C. Feng (National Institute of Standards, Gaithersburg, MD), Kevin W. Lyons (National Institute of Standards, Gaithersburg, MD), Yong-Gu Lee (Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, Puk-gu, Kwangju, South Korea).
