April 6, 2012

Government investment in the manufacture of micromachines could pay huge dividends, but in the meantime, MIT researchers are developing new fabrication techniques.


Many of the MEMS developed by principal research scientist Luis Fernando Velásquez-García — from thrusters for tiny satellites to systems for spinning out flexible functional materials — involve dense arrays of tiny semiconductor tips, like those shown here. Image: Luis Fernando Velásquez-García
