ABSTRACT
Focuses on the establishment of a research facility by INNOS to develop new silicon technologies. Development of microelectromechanical systems, lab-on-a-chip and remote sensing devices; Initiation of research and development projects for other universities; Association of photonic crystal technology with allowing light to be bent at the sub-millimeter scale, enabling multiple optical functions and systems to be installed on to a single silicon chip.
