When things get small, many interesting things happen. Such a small scaling effect is essential to understand the wonders of nature and properly replicate materials and devices mimicking natural phenomena. Microelecromechanical systems (MEMS) is one of the technologies which has enabled countless innovative applications in small scales across various disciplines. In this talk, recent developments of implantable wireless/wired biomedical devices, highly-stretchable tunable photonic crystals, liquid metal microfluidics and its applications developed at UT Dallas will be presented.
