Discovering MEMS and Microtechnology

This site is dedicated to Microelectromechanical Systems (aka MEMS, aka Microsystems), and Microtechnology, that is the tool to fabricate them and microelectronic devices. The goal is to propose a complete view of MEMS devices, integrating concerns about the application, microactuators principles, and microfabrication process.
I have also included related topics, such as a solid mechanics introduction, and some resources about making a website based on the difficulties I've met myself.
If you wish to use some of the content you find here, please feel free to ask me first, and there should not be any reason for me to refuse, as long as you state where you've got it.

For any request about getting content from this site, suggestions, english corrections (thanks by advance to all english native who would correct me...) or anything else but advertisement(!!) you can contact me at matthieu.lagouge AT

This site was made with Bluefish and some sections are still to be completed... There are still a lot to do, but i hope you'll be satisfied of your visit with what have already been uploaded.
This site is as much compliant as i could do with the W3C standards.

This site has been visited [visit counter] times (but in fact I'm not at all confident with this counter accuracy...).
