News Flash: Roger Grace's Blog on MEMS Commercialization  2007 - "The future is very bright for MEMS, especially in the "killer application" sector. Whereas in the past only a handful of these high-volume applications existed, I expect to see many more opportunities for MEMS in many other areas, including biomedical applications."  This has been found to be true recently with Yole's 2011 analysis of the MEMS industry.

Crystallography LM

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.
