This workshop will address some of the fundamental issues concerning the incorporation of organic and inorganic (e.g., semiconducting) building blocks as electronic, optical, or mechanical components into mesoscopic and/or macroscopic devices and systems.   Recent advances in our ability to synthesize, characterize and calculate the properties of individual quantum dots, molecules and self-assembled functional systems, points the way to huge impact in a broad range of future technologies from quantum computation to light harvesting for energy. Among the big questions is "How can a single molecule or an ordered network of molecules perform transport using mechanical, magnetic or charge degrees of freedom?"

This workshop will give us the opportunity to bring together engineers and scientists from the physical and biological sciences with expertise in synthesis, characterization, and theory of novel materials and devices in order to discuss the future of nanoelectronics with a goal of building a user community around the unique capabilities of the CNM.  It will include talks on molecular electronic devices, quantum dot-based transistors and mechanical sensors that integrate diamond NEMS with CNMOS.
