This is a novel process for the macroscopic control of extended nanoscopic fullerene structures. Since 1959, scientists have worked to realize a nanometer-scale technology for the fabrication and application of devices and material made to atomic specifications. Through an original computer simulation, Alexander designed, wrote and successfully tested a novel process for the rapid construction of such nanocomponents through the application of the physics phenomenon known as patterned granular motion.
