What is MEMS?
Complementary metal oxide semiconductor - integrated circuit containing n-channel and p-channel MOSFETs.
Organic bases in sets of three that form the genetic code.
Material such as the metals copper or aluminum that conducts electricity via the motion of electrons.
A polymer that consists of two or more dissimilar monomer units in combination in its molecular chains. Also a polymer formed from the polymerization of more than one type of monomer.
Deteriorative loss of a metal as a result of dissolution environmental reactions.
Measure of electrical charge: 1 C is an amount of charge equal to that of about 6.24x10
A primary interatomic bond that is formed by the sharing of electrons between neighboring atoms.
The time-dependent permanent deformation that occurs under stress; for most materials it is important only at elevated temperatures.
The influence of one measurand on the sensitivity of a sensor, another measurand.
A polymer in which adjacent linear molecular chains are joined at various positions by covalent bonds.
