News Flash: Check out "Manufacturers Turn to 3-D Printing" - see how 3D printing is going from prototyping to full scall manufacturing. This additive manufacturing process is also used in micro maching, including MEMS packaging. Good overview article. Here is a great video on what 3D printers are (thanks Carrie, for the link): 3D Printing in Space?
SCME produced Animations
In addition to the links below, you can also watch several of our animations through our YouTube channel: SCME on YouTube
Crystal Origami - short animation showing how to construct the crystal model - based on Jack Judy's Silicon Crystal Origami model. IPod MP4 file
Cantilever Array Animation - depicts the final step in fabricating an array of cantilevers used in a chemical sensor array, for example.
Backside Pressure Sensor Etch - depicts the process of completing the backside etch of the SCME pressure sensor (anisotropic etch of crystalline silicon)
Pressure sensor process animation gives the viewer an overview of the pressure sensor process used at the MTTC and now at both the NDSCS CNTT - Center for Nanoscience Technology Training in North Dakota and the University of South Florida's Nanotechnology Research Education Center.
