DNA nanotechnology, which relies on Watson-Crick hybridization, is a versatile selfassembly process whereby a variety of complex nanostructures can be fabricated with sublithographic features. Adopting this technology, 1012 identical devices can be synthesized to have hundreds of components with 1nm resolution. Example nanostructures include: 1) DNA motifs , 2) two-dimensional DNA crystals , and DNA origami . Currently, this technology is being adopted towards electronic, optical, and opto-electronic devices.
