Title: Beam controlled nano-robotic device

Abstract

A system and method (referred to as a method) to fabricate nanorobots. The method generates a pixel map of an atomic object and identifies portions of the atomic object that form a nanorobot. The method stores those identifications in a memory. The method adjusts an electron beam to a noninvasive operating level and images the portions of the atomic object that form the nanorobot. The method executes a plurality of scanning profiles by the electron beam to form the nanorobot and detects nanorobot characteristics and their surroundings via the electron beam in response to executing the plurality of scanning profiles.
