IBM's directed self-assembly one facet in broad nanotech program

Abstract:
Chuck Black and Kathryn Guarini demonstrated their nanotech breakthrough with strands of purple and red pipe-cleaner wire. In a preview of today's announcement at the IEEE's International Electron Devices Meeting in Washington D.C., the two IBM researchers explained how they coaxed two different polymers – stringy molecules they represented with different-colored pipe cleaners – to assemble themselves into a honeycombed template of 20-nanometer holes.
