      Laser Interference Lithography (LIL) techniques enable quantitative generation of periodic structures such as array of holes, dots and lines, which are the intrinsic structure in some optical functional material. In this paper, the most common errors factors that could affect the result of laser interference lithography were presented. The methods to enhance the quality of patterns of LIL also have been introduced.

      Robotic nanoassembly is an emerging field that deals with the controlled manipulation, handling and assembly of atoms, molecules and nano objects by robots for manufacturing of nano structures, devices and systems. Nanoassembly is expected to have revolutionary applications in almost all the scientific and technological areas. This paper presents a general review of nanoassembly by robots considering its current developments and challenges. It discusses scanning probe-based 2D nanomanipulation, gripper-based 3D nanohandling, object-oriented nanoassembly and hybrid nanoassembly techniques, which are the main topics of interest in the field. The challenging issues in robotic nanoassembly are outlined together with the topics.
