Proposals that seek to develop innovative processes, including self-assembly, nanolithography, nano-patterning, nano-texturing, nano-3D printing etc., techniques, and equipment for the low-cost, large-area or continuous manufacturing of nano-to micro-scale structures and their assembly/integration into higher order systems are encouraged. Proposals are sought that develop methods for the reliable, economic, and safe mass production of nanostructures that could lead to new technologies in electronics, biotechnology and medicine, energy, and materials including the use of biological materials and robotics for building new structures. Bio-nanomanufacturing, molecular programming and molecular robotics for applications and scale-up of the use of DNA in areas such as nanaosenors, spectroscopy, imaging, and devices for industrial, environmental, and medical applications.
