Chris Phoenix: "Can we design and construct a device or scheme that can arrange atoms or molecules according to an arbitrary, user-defined blueprint? This is at the heart of the idea of the software control of matter – the creation, perhaps, of a 'matter compiler' which will interpret software instructions to output a macroscopic product in which every atom is precisely placed."
The above is not CRN's writing – it is, in fact, a product of the EPSRC, the UK's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. In January of 2007, EPSRC will call together between 20 and 30 interdisciplinary researchers to brainstorm and develop research proposals toward "Software Control of Matter at the Atomic or Molecular Scale."
