In the traditional approach to designing and fabricating computer systems, designers use a top-down scheme to specify exactly where every component should be placed, and then the manufacturer fabricates the system according to these specifications. This intuitive top-down approach conforms with how we expect to design systems, and it is how all current commercial computer systems have been developed. However, the semiconductor industry has identified the difficulty of continuing to scale down the feature sizes for mass-produced electronic components, and this impending roadblock has spurred research in bottom-up self-assembly approaches. With bottom-up self-assembly, the designer specifies where individual or additional components will be placed on a mother chip. To this end, nucleic acids are widely exercised for self- and directed- assembly of functional components for nanoelectronics applications. In this talk, a number of organic-inorganic hybrid arrangements of quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, rod like and icosahedral shaped plant viruses for memory and resonant tunneling diode applications will be demonstrated. Assemblies with the use of sticky end tags –cysteines, lysines and peptide nucleic acids, will be demonstrated and their structural and electrical characterization within these assemblies will be discussed in detail.
