DNA nanotechnology to bridge MEMS and nanomaterial

Nanosystem in which multiple nano-scale functional building blocks made of variety of nano-materials are integrated with MEMS becomes increasingly important as a key device for next generation. An assembly technique bridging the gap between nano-scale building blocks and micro-scale MEMS is expected to play an important role as a complementary approach for a top down and a bottom up approaches to realize Nanosystem. As a part of the assembly technique, a self-assembly method has been drawing much attention to realize Nanosystem by massively parallel production at low cost. One of the challenging point is implementation of a self-assembly sequence control of multiple functional building blocks in a pre-determined order to realize high functional Nanosystem. However, so far, no methodology has been realized to assemble multiple functional building blocks made of variety of nano-material to specific positions in a specific sequence based on pre-determined design. To address this goal, author is noticing the potential of DNA nanotechnology, especially a DNA origami technique to arrange nano-components such as nano-particle on MEMS with spatiotemporal controlled manner using DNA. In this presentation, concept of the proposed methodology and preliminary experimental results are presented.
