Taking a brief look at MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS), we will guide you through the fabrication stages and show you some applications that they are used for. MEMS can be very simple and not move at all to being immensely complex systems with lots of moving elements being controlled by the system. Starting off with some simple facts we will then show the stages of their fabrication. The basic process of manufacturing MEMS starts with deposition of thin films onto their respective material layers. Then the material is patterned by one of many forms of lithography. The final step in creating MEMS is etching the pattern so that the final product will be the desired shape. MEMS can be created at a relatively low cost because they can be produced in high volumes because of bulk fabrication. MEMS are used for microvalves for controlling gas and liquid, switches, sensors, actuators, and much more!

MEMS are very useful and can be applied in almost any situation. They are cheap and relatively easy to make and help a lot in everyday life.
