News Flash: IBM unveiled a new type of computer chip that integrates both electrical and optical nano-devices on the same piece of silicon. This could soon make it possible for supercomputers to perform one million trillion calculations – or an exaflop – in a single second.

This category contains the Crystallography Overview for MEMS Learning module. This learning module covers the various types of solids, crystal structure, the crystal structure of silicon and why crystal orientation is important in microtechnology fabrication. It also covers the Miller Index and how it is used to identify crystal orientation of substrates used in the fabrication of micro-devices.
