Dr. David Henry at EIPBN, May 31, 2010

Silicon Nanowires Fabricated using FIB Implanted Ga Etch Masks for Plasma Etching

Anchorage, AK
May 31, 2010

Recent nanofab graduate David Henry will describe a new dry masking technique for nanoscale silicon processing at the 54th International Conference  on Electron, Ion, and Photon Beam Technology and Nanofabrication.

Integrated Medical Diagnostics

Hanover, NH
May 13, 2010

Prof. Scherer will give a Jones Seminar at Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering describing our latest work on medical device technology.


Quartz MEMS gyroscope created at the MDLCongratulations to Mike Shearn on his position in the Microdevices Laboratory at JPL!  Mike will bring his extensive device fabrication experience up the road to their cleanroom in La Canada-Flintridge, and eventually into the far reaches of our galaxy when their sensors get deployed.

We hope he'll continue to drop by the KNI once in awhile!
