Copper deposition to fabricate tiny 3-D objects

21-Jan-2016

Scientists at ETH Zurich have developed a new method of 3D microprinting. This can be used to manufacture even tiny, partly overhanging structures easily and in a single step. One day, this could pave the way for the manufacture of complex watch components or microtools for keyhole surgery, for ...

Nanodevices at one-hundredth the cost

New techniques for building microelectromechanical systems show promise

22-Dec-2015

Microelectromechanical systems -- or MEMS -- were a $12 billion business in 2014. But that market is dominated by just a handful of devices, such as the accelerometers that reorient the screens of most smartphones. That's because manufacturing MEMS has traditionally required sophisticated ...
