Abstract

Australian efforts in biosensors, environmental monitoring and mobile-health are predicated on the establishment of a nanotechnology based manufacturing sector. The key to this will be understanding how ultrasmall mechanical devices work. This application explores how we can make novel mechanical devices from molecules and small crystals.
