MEMS technology magnifies opportunities for low-cost SEM

Abstract:
NOVELX wants to do to the optical microscope what computing did to the slide rule: make it obsolete. The two-man startup in the San Francisco Bay area plans to use MEMS technology to build a miniaturized modular scanning electron microscope for commercial and defense markets. If they succeed, they will transform how small tech research and commercialization is done today. And science classrooms will get a whole lot cooler.
