The term “nanofabrication” encompasses the myriad of techniques that can be used to make nanostructures, but only a small subset can make the transition to economic viability that defines “nanomanufacturing”.  I will discuss how market and technical constraints come into play for a variety of nanoscale products, and illustrate key concepts such as speed, yield, precision, defectivity, and modularity by comparing semiconductor manufacturing with the emerging field of DNA-directed self-assembly.  Finally, I will show how nanofabrication techniques can create the...
