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.
Dr. Keith Ortiz is the manager of the MEMS Technologies Department within the Microsystems S&T and Components Center at Sandia National Laboratories. His department conducts research and development for advanced micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) that push the technology envelope for national security applications. The department also develops and maintains a core set of MEMS fabrication processes.
