2 Atomic/Molecular Assembling Technologies

In Table 2.1, various kinds of atomic/molecular assembling technologies are summarized. The scanning tunneling microscope (STM) is applicable to both atomic and molecular assembling. While sputtering, molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), chemical vapor deposition (CVD), atomic layer apitaxy (ALE), and atomic layer deposition (ALD) are used for atomic assembling, vacuum deposition polymerization and molecular layer deposition (MLD) are used for molecular assembling. In the case of molecular assembling, since the growth is three-dimensional, wire orientations should be controlled. Therefore, selective wire growth has been added in the table.

This chapter begins with an explanation of the similarity of electronic ...
