While some say that nanomanufacturing is already going on in advanced semiconductor and hard-disk-drive production lines, where fabricated structures have plummeted to the low double-digit nanometer range, others believe that "true" nanomanufacturing must involve some sort of self-assembly or "bottom-up" processes. The latter view was summed up nicely by Brian Lin of Atomate, when he told Chip Shots a few months back, "Unless it's taking advantage of some of the quantum benefits of the nanoscale, it doesn't really count."
Joey Mead, professor at University of Massachusetts--Lowell and deputy director of the NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for High-Rate Nanomanufacturing (or "CHN" for short), cleaves to the latter, more "nanopurist" or Feynmanesque definition. She has had two chances at this week's Small Times NanoCon event to talk about what the critical barriers to nanomanufacturing are and how to possibly overcome them, first in a workshop presentation and then as part of a keynote panel discussion on nanomaterials manufacturing.
