ACE Paste:假球形CarbonExtractor.把温室气体收成碳,to be used for diamondoid fabrication.Larger than most pastebots,because it has to be collectible afterwards.A well-designed paste could harvest 100X or more its empty weight.可能不需要ace粘贴,因为大型固定安装可能更有效。[UHF ]


阿尼玛:这个术语是由Alan H开发的。戈德斯坦。In his article I,纳米机器人,他建议以“动物材料”“动物”一词的缩写来命名一种新的生活状态。This artificial life form (most likely nanobiotechnology based) must meet the following tests:

A = Devices that can survive and function in our ecosphere,for example inside human beings.

B = Devices that can derive energy from biological metabolism.Many nanomedical devices will be powered by the fuel available inside the human body.A common idea is to take our own glucose-oxidizing enzymes and use them as a fuel cell for the nanobiobot.

C = Devices capable of copying themselves by molecular self-assembly.请注意,任何必要的信息,为动物的行动,不能存储在DNA或RNA或任何其他方法被发现是自然使用地球上的生命。The corollary: If the information necessary to execute the animat's operations can be stored in DNA or RNA,then the animat is really biological and is not an animat.

So A + B + C = a self-replicating device capable of living in our ecosphere,由我们生态圈中可用的燃料提供动力=动物。

Assembler: A general-purpose device for molecular manufacturing capable of guiding chemical reactions by positioning molecules.一种分子机器,可编程成用简单的化学积木建造几乎任何分子结构或装置。Analogous to a computer-driven machine shop.[FS]

原子层沉积(AFM) A self-limiting,sequential surface chemistry that deposits conformal thin-films of materials onto substrates of varying compositions.ALD在化学上与化学气相沉积(CVD)相似。除了ALD反应将CVD反应分解成两个半反应外,keeping the precursor materials separate during the reaction.ALD膜的生长是自限的,基于表面反应。这使得实现原子尺度沉积控制成为可能。By keeping the precursors separate throughout the coating process,atomic layer control of film grown can be obtained as fine as ~ 0.1 angstroms per monolayer.

Atomic Force Microscope(AFM)一种能够通过机械探测表面轮廓来对表面进行分子精度成像的仪器。一种近端探针。....A device in which the deflection of a sharp stylus mounted on a soft spring is monitored as the stylus is moved across a surface.如果通过测量增量上下移动表面来保持偏转恒定,the result (under favorable conditions) is an atomic-resolution topographic map of the surface.Also termed a scanning force microscope.[FS] SeeHow AFM Works,什么是原子力显微镜?andWindow on a Small World

Atomic Manipulation:操纵原子,typically with the tip of an STM.

原子同步:大分子系统的原子运动计算机模拟日益成为材料科学和纳米技术的重要组成部分。Recent advances in supercomputer simulation techniques provide the necessary tools for performing computations on nanoscale objects containing as many as 300,000 atoms and on materials simulated with 1,000,000 atoms.This new capability will allow computer simulation of mechanical devices or molecular machines using nanometer size components.[Ornl计算科学中心]

自下而上: Building larger objects from smaller building blocks.Nanotechnology seeks to use atoms and molecules as those building blocks.The advantage of bottom-up design is that the covalent bonds holding together a single molecule are far stronger than the weak.[NTN] Mostly done by chemists,attempting to create structure by connecting molecules.

Brownian Assembly: Brownian motion in a fluid brings molecules together in various position and orientations.如果分子有合适的互补表面,they can bind,组装形成一个特定的结构。对于自组装来说,布朗组装是一个不那么矛盾的名称(一个结构如何能够自己组装,或者做任何事,when it does not yet exist?).[NTN]

布朗运动:由于热搅拌,颗粒在流体中的运动,observed in 1827 by Robert Brown.(最初被认为是由生命力引起的,Brownian motion in fact plays a vital role in the assembly and activity of the molecular structures of life).[NTN]

[Ralph C.梅克尔]

FUTURE SHOCK“那些不注意的人感到震惊。”阿尔文·托夫勒,1970

费米悖论:“如果宇宙中还有其他智慧生物,他们为什么不在这儿?”因为一个技术物种在不到1000万年的时间内就很可能在银河系中传播(使用von Neumann machines) or otherwise change things on such a large scale that it would be very visible (seeKardaschev类型),the lack of such evidence is puzzling or implies that other technological civilizations doen't exist.There have been many attempts to explain this,for example the "Wildlife Preserve" idea (the aliens doesn't want to interfere with younger civilizations),that they transcend and become incomprehensible,他们藏起来了或者他们真的在这里,隐藏在纳米尺度上,but the problem with these attempts is that most of them just explain why some aliens would not be apparent.e.费米

反乌托邦: often used to describe a society where people lead dehumanized,害怕,技术限制了生命。换句话说,a totalitarianism or theocracy,where books are burned,reading of dangerous ideas is proscribed,and the state controls science.
