In this talk I will describe our research program to establish a new scientific and technology foundation that will allow for the future realization of advanced integrated bio-molecular optoelectronic architectures. This research project seeks to leverage concepts of advanced functionality that already exist in nature through a detailed study of biologically-based molecular-level devices, subsystems, and systems, and consider them in the specific context of integrated platforms. Ultimately, the work would establish new device concepts, fabrication methodologies and modeling/design tools that are imperative for integrated bio-molecular optoelectronic architectures of the future. The central focus of this work is the construction and integration of novel architectural building blocks that are to be assembled. These tasks include:
