tech gears black_and_white miniture mems machines scanning_electron_microscope

Yesterday we displayed GE’s research in advanced microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), a technology the company is using to make tiny switches that can turn on and off 10,000 times a second. Other researchers around the country are looking into different MEMS applications to make tiny gears, tools and even engines. 

Above are a few examples from Sandia National Laboratories and Boston University, two other institutions also working on extreme miniaturization. Click on these electron microscope images to learn more.
