News Flash: Rice University Create Cables Made Of Nanowires That Could Replace Copper Wires.
Popular Science (9/8, Boyle) reports, "Cables made out of nanowires could be just as efficient as the copper cables we've been using for more than a century, but at a fraction of the weight, according to a new paper. Braiding billions of carbon nanotubes into a nanowire cable can efficiently replace copper in a light bulb circuit."
MTTC Pressure Sensor Process Learning Module
This category includes the MTTC Pressure Sensor Process Learning Module, a fabrication process for a MEMS Pressure Sensor developed by the Manufacturing Technology Training Center (MTTC) at the University of New Mexico (UNM). Materials include Instructor guide, Participant guide and PowerPoint presentation.
There are three (3) kits available through SCME that support this learning module:
- Micro Pressure Sensor Process Model Kit
- Surface Micromachining - Lift-Off Process Kit (formerly Lift-off)
- Bulk Micromachining - An Etch Process Kit (formerly Anisotropic Etch)
This pdf contains the materials for the MTTC Pressure Sensor Learning Module - Participant Guide. This learning module describes the operation of and the fabrication of a MEMS pressure sensor. This particular process was developed by the Manufacturing Technology Training Center (MTTC) at the Univeristy of New Mexico.
This learning module consists of a primary knowledge unit and four (4) activities.
