Nanoengineering is an essential bridge that utilizes nanoscience and nanotechnology to enable a broad spectrum of totally new materials, functionalities, applications, devices, and products. Conventional photonic manufacturing technologies have extended well into the nanometer regime. Over-extended technologies are pushing sizes and densities into ranges that challenge reliability and basic physics. Nanoengineering also allows for manipulating matter at the nanoscale. Newly engineered materials, processes, ultrahigh precision and metrologies are emerging. Novel synthesized nanomaterials, based on 1D, 2D, and 3D architectures, nanocomposites and hierarchical assemblies based on such materials offer exciting opportunities. Nanostructured thin films display unique phenomena, thus enabling the improvement of traditional applications or the development of novel applications. Newly attainable design and fabrication of miniature optical elements have enabled the development of micro/nano/quantum-scale optical, near field optics, and optoelectronic elements in ever more diverse application areas. New low power logic and memory devices, expanded functionality, systems on a chip, solar cells, energy storage devices, biotechnology, photonics, photovoltaics, molecular electronics and optics are emerging. Application areas are highly diversified and include telecommunications, data communications, consumer electronics, microwave photonics, optical computing, neural networks, optical storage, non-volatile data storage, information display, optical imaging, printing, optical sensing, optical scanning, renewable energy harvest and storage, medical diagnosis, chemical/ biological/environmental sensing, new nanomechanic applications, and new medical devices and prosthetic methods.
Critical to this realization of robust nanomanufacturing is the development of appropriate instrumentation, metrology, and standards. As novel applications emerge, the demand for highly sensitive and efficient measurement tools with the capability of rapid, automated, and thorough coverage of large functional areas at high precision is emerging.
The newly upcoming nanotechnologies present new opportunities and challenges in materials processing, device design, and integration. Drivers for commercial deployment include increased functionality, small form factor, performance, reliability, cost, as well as renewable energy and climate change mitigation.
