Title: Nanomanufacturing Chapter for Productive Nanosystems Roadmap

Abstract

Current methods used to isolate nanoparticles from reaction media and to separate powders and solid materials (e.g., purification, separation, and consolidation techniques) result in low yields (especially at low volumes), relatively large amounts of precursor waste, compromised performance, and finished products that cannot easily be reproduced. Inefficient processes add expenses and significant manufacturing costs to nanomaterials used both directly and as raw materials to subsequent materials. Realization of the full potential of novel nanomaterials is impossible without suitable processing techniques that go beyond miniaturized traditional manufacturing. Manufacturing approaches that utilize mass production techniques, modular assembly with building blocks, and integrated assembly are needed to reduce costs and accelerate the entry of nanomaterials into commercial application. This will require basic physical and thermodynamic data that do not currently exist. For example, reliable and robust processes cannot be developed presently at low volumes.
