MEMS kinetic microsculpture. Coloured scanning electron micrograph of a MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) kinetic microsculpture. MEMS devices are constructed on a microscopic scale using technologies such as wet and dry etching and thin film deposition. Applications include sensors and optical displays. Materials used to construct MEMS devices include silicon and polymers such as plastics. This device was produced as an experiment and reacts to the application of an electron beam. Magnification: x522, when printed 10 centimetres wide.
