Retro-Mechanical Era?
>From MEMS to NEMS switches

Prof. Jun-Bo Yoon
KAIST University, Korea

A switch has been playing very important role on our human history.
For example, manual phone line switching gave us a great motivation to
invent a transistor at Bell lab in around 1950. After dramatic
progress in the modern integrated circuit technology, we now are
sitting on a position looking back our mechanical switch era. Why? I'd
like to discuss the reason with you while presenting recent progresses
achieved in MEMS and NEMS switches in this talk.
