A Splash of Alcohol Eases the Friction When Tiny Gears Meet

MEMS are micro machines that typically range in size from as small as a dust particle up to the size of a grain of rice (20 microns to a millimeter). MEMS are embedded in cell phones, automotive air bags, digital cameras, microphones, and ink jet printers, to name only a few of their multibillion dollar applications. More recently, MEMS accelerometers that measure the motion in handheld devices are the enabling technology in the popular Nintendo Wii gaming system.
