I didnt have any luck with the professor at SIU research nanotechnology, but I did hear back from Peter Yeadon [email below]. Also take a look at the Biomimicry Database link I posted. Just search for something like structure or shape to get started–there is a lot of information on this website.

Dear Mr. Bailey,

Thank you for your email. I can recommend some readings that might be
helpful to you:
Drexler, Eric. Engines of Creation. (particularly chapter 4)
Johansen, John. Nanoarchitecture: A New Species of Architecture. (not a
great book, but it was a beginning)
Storrs Hall, J. Nanofuture: What’s Next For Nanotechnology.
Storrs Hall, J. Utility Fog.

Some of these (i.e. Utility Fog, Engines of Creation) can be read

It might also be helpful for you to download some of the articles that
are available on my web site.

If you go to the site, there are many resources
there. Check out the resources section, and the “molecular machines +
devices” listings in the Archives section. That section lists the
state-of-the-art today, with respect to nanoscale machines and devices
that have been achieved. Some of the work of my students at RISD have
been posted on that site as well, which can be found by typing “RISD”
in the search box at the upper right corner.

Best regards,
Peter Yeadon
