Making ‘nanospinning’ practical
November 20, 2012Nanofibers have a dizzying range of possible applications, but they’ve been prohibitively expensive to make. MIT researchers hope to change that.
MIT-developed ‘microthrusters’ could propel small satellites
August 17, 2012As small as a penny, these thrusters run on jets of ion beams.
Moving microfluidics from the lab bench to the factory floor
March 29, 2012The Center for Polymer Microfabrication designs manufacturing processes for a new generation of diagnostic tools.
Transistors promise more powerful logic, more logical power
March 7, 2012Research could affect U.S. manufacturing indirectly, by helping introduce products difficult to build elsewhere, and directly, by reducing production costs.
