High performance photonics system and subsystems require increasing sophistication in packaging and assembly technology to achieve their performance targets. DNA labeling techniques have the potential of achieving precise placement of semiconductor structures on host substrates. These labelling techniques allow the electrophoretic transport of the semiconductor structures in solution, as well as the specific matching of structures to host locations due to the complementary base pairing inherent in DNA hybridization. By configuring an electrode array on the host-substrate, various semiconductor structures may be manipulated in solution using the electric fields created by applying a potential to the electrodes.
