||Recent advances in nanomanufacturing have resulted in new, and in some cases radically different, materials and devices. Because they are scalable, some of these new techniques promise low cost, mass-production of nanomaterials and devices. Significant dispersions of nanoscale carbon have been incorporated into a wide range of metals, radically altering their thermal and electrical properties. For example, a new class of LegoŽ-like molecular building blocks based on amino acids can allow the synthesis of atomically-precise, rigid, 1-, 2-, and 3-dimensional structures and devices, allowing novel materials, catalysts, and pharmaceuticals. This symposium focuses on new processes for creating nanomaterials and nanodevices, and on the properties of and applications for these products.
