Integrated Nanosystems for Atomically Precise Manufacturing Workshop – August 5-6, 2015
You are here
The US Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) hosted a Workshop on Integrated Nanosystems for Atomically Precise Manufacturing (INFAPM) in Berkeley, California, August 5-6, 2015. DOE invited representatives from academia, national labs, the Executive Office of the President, federal agencies, and industry. The workshop was designed to gather information on the vision, goals, barriers and advances needed to accelerate the development of atomically precise manufacturing. A fundamentally new approach to INFAPM structures and applications, tools, and demonstration is needed to realize the enormous savings potential of atomic-scale, defect-free manufacturing. Over the course of the two day workshop, attendees contributed their ideas for targeted approaches. The results of this workshop will guide future DOE planning efforts. Included here is an animation that was presented by David Forrest, AMO Technology Manager, during his welcome presentation, and the plenary presentations from the workshop. A workshop report is under development and will be uploaded to this site when complete.
