Smart lights, nonstick implants and 100th birthday of electronics at science & technology meeting
...over the last 25 years, the vacuum tube and modern microelectronics
have merged. These technologies have been combined for specialized devices termed "vacuum microelectronics," which combine the attributes of both technologies: the ease of control of an electron beam in vacuum with the miniaturization and mass-produ...
Microneedles: Report describes progress in new technology for painless drug delivery
... etching technologies originally developed for the microelectronics
industry. The researchers produced arrays of up to 400 needles designed to punch holes in the outer layer of skin to increase its permeability to small molecules applied with patches. That work has broadened to include both solid and hollow micronee...
