DARPA Funds Atoms-to-Products Breakthrough | EE Times

"These 'atomic-scale' behaviors have potentially important defense applications," says DARPA's Atoms to Products website, "including quantized current-voltage behavior, dramatically lower melting points and significantly higher specific heats, for example. The challenge is how to retain the characteristics of materials at the atomic scale in much larger 'product-scale' (typically a few centimeters) devices and systems." One of the leading contractors, HRL Laboratories, LLC (Malibu, Calif.), spoke about the program to EE Times last October, before DARPA was ready to go public with some aspects of the program. HRl has subcontracted with Intelligent Materials Solutions (Princeton, New Jersey) to extend the nanoscale magic of advanced materials by precisely assembling them atom-per-atom. "To get the benefits of nanoscale engineering at the millimeter scale, we partnered with I...
