The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) is seeking ways to assemble human-scale products from atomic-scale constituents to enable new material and system properties. "Many common materials exhibit different and potential useful characteristics when fabricated at extremely small scale," the agency said, announcing the Atoms to Product (A2P) program. Properties at nanoscale dimensions are close to atom size and include "quantized electrical characteristics, ...
