MEMS Engine


David Bahr, Cecilia Richards and Robert Richards invented the world's smallest engine.  Smaller than a dime and thinner than a piece of paper, the P3 engine is capable of someday replacing batteries in many portable electronics.  The engine is radically different in design, fabrication, and operation from any existing engine, the result a of a focused effort to entirely rethink the concept of an engine on the micro-scale.
