Information Delivery for Nanoscale Construction
A widely acknowledged goal of nanotechnology is to build intricate, useful nanoscale structures. What usually goes unstated is how the structures will be specified. Simple structures can be created easily: a crystal is an atomically precise structure that can be created from simple molecules and conditions. But complex nano-products will require some way to deliver large quantities of information to the nanoscale.
