Foley Understands Nanotechnology and Microsystems
At Foley, we are excited about the broad vistas of nanotechnology and microsystems. We know that an emerging nanotechnology and microsystems sector lies at the intersection of materials science, organic chemistry and biochemistry, semiconductor design, fluidics, and computer science, among other disciplines. The overarching goal is to fabricate materials and devices from the "bottom up," controlling structure at the atomic or molecular level. To these ends, whole new manufacturing technologies are under development, employing organic molecules or biomaterials for electronic- and optical-device applications, or relying on quantum-mechanical effects to generate a desired property. The fruits of these technologies may supplement or even replace conventional semiconductor devices, data storage materials, structural materials, and medical tools.
