Featured Publication

Academic and industrial research scientists and engineers, as well as students working in micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), commonly encounter a steep learning curve when developing common MEMS fabrication processes. A fundamental, comprehensive MEMS-focused reference book just published by Springer promises to be an important game-changing asset for the field.

The handbook is co-edited by Reza Ghodssi, Director of the Institute for Systems Research and Herbert Rabin Distinguished Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park, Md.; and Pinyen Lin, Chief Technologist and Vice President of Business Development, Touch Micro-System Technology Corp. Taoyuan, Taiwan. It features 35 international contributing authors who are MEMS leaders in academic, industrial and government laboratory settings.

The final chapter on Process Integration was written by MNX founder and director Dr. Michael Huff.
