  • Offers the most comprehensive introduction to the science of miniaturization
  • Includes well-chosen examples and hundreds of illustrations, many in full color
  • Provides extensive lists of references, Web links, and suggestions for further reading
  • Reviews both top-down and bottom-up manufacturing methods
  • Bridges the gap between "wet" and "dry" microengineering
  • Details an abundance of industrial and medical MEMS applications, from the historical to the state-of-the-art
  • Summary

    MEMS technology and applications have grown at a tremendous pace, while structural dimensions have grown smaller and smaller, reaching down even to the molecular level. With this movement have come new types of applications and rapid advances in the technologies and techniques needed to fabricate the increasingly miniature devices that are literally changing our world.

    A bestseller in its first edition, Fundamentals of Microfabrication, Second Edition reflects the many developments in methods, materials, and applications that have emerged recently. Renowned author Marc Madou has added exercise sets to each chapter, thus answering the need for a textbook in this field.

    Fundamentals of Microfabrication, Second Edition offers unique, in-depth coverage of the science of miniaturization, its methods, and materials. From the fundamentals of lithography through bonding and packaging to quantum structures and molecular engineering, it provides the background, tools, and directions you need to confidently choose fabrication methods and materials for a particular miniaturization problem.
