Nanomanufacturing capitalizes on the special material properties and processing capabilities at the nanoscale, promotes the integration of nanostructures into functional micro- and nano-devices and meso/macroscale architectures and systems, and addresses interfacing issues across dimensional scales. Nanomanufacturing affords nanotechnology the ability to be massively produced, reliable, robust, and inexpensive. Nanomanufacturing also raises concerns about the impact of nanofabrication processes and by-products, as well as their societal impacts. This book, entitled Nanomanufacturing, presents an overview of the emerging field of nanomanufacturing and is a review of current nanomanufacturing technologies, including those currently in development, and looks at the challenges faced in realizing the large-scale production of nanotechnology. The book includes 12 review chapters composed by leading authorities and emerging researchers on various topics such as nanowire-based devices, liquid jet printing, laser processing for self-organizing structures and lithography, nanoscale electro-machining, and many others. Furthermore, the role the public plays in nanomanufacturing is addressed through the societal impacts of nanomanufacturing section. The content is intended for a technical audience at various levels and covers topics relevant to electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, materials science, chemistry, and physics.
