The emerging capabilities of nanotechnology today for systematic control and manufacturing across multiple length scales are evolving into the next generations of nanotechnology products. These products can be categorized as passive nanostructures, active nanostructures, multi-dimensional nanosystems, heterogeneous molecular nanosystems, and multiscale, integrated nanosystems. The improved understanding of interactive forces among nanostructures and materials, combined with the resulting collective behavior within integrated systems has enabled new methodologies for the controlled manipulation of nanocomponents and structures comprising a broader hierarchy. As such, this new understanding will become a central research topic for discoveries and innovations toward new commercial applications, along with new paradigms in manufacturing sciences to address the necessary economy of scale requirements for these new products. Integrated systems nanomanufacturing must combine the understanding that has evolved to achieve this controlled manipulation of materials and structures with emerging capabilities and methodologies to realize new collective functionality for next generation systems.
