"Nanofabrication can be viewed as a close-to-manufacturing process for nanotechnology systems, nanoassembly is an engineering platform that backs up nanofabrication, and self-assembly is one of the core scientific principles behind nanoassembly. This book provides a systematic explanation of self-assembly, nanoassembly, and nanofabrication; it then networks them together into one book. The book is divided into four parts. The first part shows the assembly building units, and how diverse their origins and structures can be. It also presents how to analyze the building unit structures in a systematic manner. This is be called segmental analysis which is used as an underlying concept for the discussions throughout the book. The second and third parts show the designs and applications of nanotechnology systems, respectively, and how to select proper assembly principles and methods. The last part shows how to select proper characterization techniques and predictive models.This book serves as a companion book and expands on the author's previous book Self-Assembly and Nanotechnology: A Force Balance Approach by using the concepts from that book as a foundation for informatic approach to self-assembly, which can be directly expanded into nanoassembly, and into nanofabrication, which provides an effective way to design/fabricate nanofabricated systems. These topics can be used to develop a variety of nanotechnology systems effectively and efficiently, which could pave a way to green nanotechnology with its potential for economically-sound and environment-friendly nanoscale processes"--Provided by publisher.

The ability of nanostructures to organize into complex arrangements leads to unique materials with valuable applications. Self-assembly is therefore a key concept for nanotechnology, but it can be quite a complex and difficult subject to approach. Water Droplets to Nanotechnology gives a simple and general overview of the different self-assembly processes which are at the basis of recent developments in nanotechnology. The book shows how simple phenomenon from everyday examples can become sophisticated tools for self-assembly and the fabrication of nanomaterials. By exploring the coffee stain and tears of wine phenomena, the first part looks at how the evaporation of a droplet of colloidal solution can be used in designing organized structures. This leads onto more complex systems such as templated porous materials, photonic crystals, colloidal nanocrystals and quasi-crystals through to bottom-up systems for designing hierarchal materials. By taking the reader on a journey from everyday life to the secrets of nanotechnology, the book is suitable for a non-specialist audience interested in self-assembly as well as the wider perspectives and latest developments of nanoscience. >By taking the reader on a journey from everyday life to the secrets of nanotechnology, the book is suitable for a non-specialist audience interested in self-assembly as well as the wider perspectives and latest developments of nanoscience.

Nanotechnology spans and merges very diverse areas from device physics to molecular self-assembly, from development of new materials with nanoscale dimensions to manipulating existing materials on atomic scale. DNA nanotechnology is the field of nanotechnology that uses the unique structure and properties of DNA as a structural material or computational medium. DNA nanotechnology has various applications but mostly is used in DNA computing and molecular self-assembly. In this dissertation these two areas are investigated. Under DNA-based nanofabrication, construction of functional materials as building blocks for nanoelectronics and optimal DNA sequence design for assembly are researched. Conjugation of carbon nanotubes as well as end-to-end assembly of nanowires with DNA is demonstrated, electrical measurements are investigated, and the process is carried on an electronic microarray platform. This electronic microarray platform is adopted to perform DNA computing, which is the biggest accomplishment of this dissertation. The information present in an image is encoded through various DNA strands and decoded on a CMOS-enabled platform to recreate the original image. Satisfiability problems were solved via 2 different methods. It is notable that the proposed approach eliminated the need for PCR and enzymes, resulting in a decreased error rates and cost. Overall, this technique shows significant advantages over previous experimental techniques such as short operating time, reusable surface and simple experimental steps. Finally, microelectronics and molecular biology techniques are integrated for showing the feasibility of Hopfield neural network using DNA molecules. Six-dimensional Hopfield associative memory storing various memories is demonstrated as an archetype neural network using DNA. The results are read on an electronic microarray platform, which opens the semiconductor processing knowledge for fast and accurate hybridization rates. The research undertaken under the umbrella of this dissertation is expected to have broad implications for next-generation functional materials such as nanoscale building blocks. The proposed surface-based DNA computation approach will bring the hybrid concept of silicon-compatible DNA computing to realization. Integration of a CMOS platform and DNA for a completely non-biological purpose has the potential to greatly affect the future applications.

Mechanical Self-Assembly: Science and Applications introduces a novel category of self-assembly driven by mechanical forces. This book discusses self-assembly in various types of small material structures including thin films, surfaces, and micro- and nano-wires, as well as the practice's potential application in micro and nanoelectronics, MEMS/NEMS, and biomedical engineering. The mechanical self-assembly process is inherently quick, simple, and cost-effective, as well as accessible to a large number of materials, such as curved surfaces for forming three-dimensional small structures. Mechanical self-assembly is complementary to, and sometimes offer advantages over, the traditional micro- and nano-fabrication.
