- Bending Water with Lasers
- Previously, researchers thought that only lasers with a power of 10 watts or greater--the kind of lasers used in micro-machining or surgery--had enough oomph to make water budge. But Olivier and Janine Emile of the University of Rennes in France ...

- Micromirror based light modulator
- In contrast one-dimensional light modulators are controlled directly and do not have any CMOS-circuit underneath the single micro mirrors, they display the information continuously and hence can be used to modulate continuous light and short pulse ...

- Karen's Blog from ESC Silicon Valley 2011 – MEMS Panel « MEMSblog
- What struck me was that of the exhibitors and attendees, a good chunk (let's say 30%) of them were using some form of MEMS technology in their product demos and offerings. Impressed, is more like it – and that probably explains why ESC ...
MEMS Industry Group yesterday - MEMS business
- Globalfoundaries dismisses 3D transistors
- 2D CMOS can do all that by using new ideas in materials integration, lithography, and interconnect technology, Globalfoundaries said. In fact 3D technology is less likely to impact AMD or Global Foundaries as it is geared to giving Chipzilla something ...

- A tiny antenna could revolutionize solar panels
- A new type of nanomaterial, a tiny antenna, could solve that problem and make our solar panels far more efficient. Solar panels have what's known as a "bandgap", and any light below that threshold frequency just passes straight through, not generating ...
