Micromechanic motor. Coloured scanning electron micrograph of the rotor of a micromechanic flow meter. This component was made using similar techniques to those employed in integrated circuit (silicon chip) manufacture. At these small scales, silicon is as good a material as steel for mechanical systems, but is far easier to shape. Magnification x40 at 6x7cm size.
