Final Report - GOLEM (Bio-inspired Assembly Process for Micro- and Nano- Products)

Project ID: 33211
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

While our knowledge on synthesising nanostructures at the molecular level is progressing at a fast pace since the remarkable achievement of buckyballs and carbon nanotubes, our current understanding on how to interface and assemble parts from different materials is still limited. The GOLEM concept was to propose an approach based on bio-inspired events to assemble parts at the micro-/nano- scale. Their final report details the achievements of the project and includes images and photos. The breakdown of the project was as follows. The first group was to investigate and model various bio-inspired mechanisms suitable for the meso-scale assembly. The second ensemble of tasks was to devise new methods for manipulating a large number of meso-scale components and finally, the third group focuses on implementing a testing platform for bio-mediated assembled components.
