Scholarcy highlights

  • Electronic devices and their components are continually evolving to offer improved performance, smaller sizes, lower weight, and reduced costs, often requiring the state-of-the-art manufacturing and materials to do so
  • An emerging class of materials and fabrication techniques inspired by self-assembling biological systems shows promise as an alternative to the more traditional methods that are currently used in the microelectronics industry
  • This spatial self-assembly process offers the possibility of improved performance while reducing overall manufacturing complexity of devices and components by harnessing the relative ease in which it can produce mesoscopic 3D geometries
  • These benefits can lead to tighter integration, reduced costs, and even small, autonomous robots fabricated from a single wafer
  • To better understand the technology, existing work in this research field is reviewed with regard to the mechanisms involved in the 3D self-assembly, the materials that facilitate it, and the devices that can benefit most from their implementation
