About the Event

Sandia National Laboratories has conducted research and development in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and other microsystem technologies since the mid-1990’s. It is well known for its surface micromachining capability, in particular, the SUMMiT V™ process with which it can make rotating gears and machines. This presentation will be a brief overview of current MEMS and microsystems R&D at Sandia and will highlight work in aluminum nitride inertial sensors and RF filters, microsystems-enabled photovoltaic cells, and other technologies.
