Smaller is often better. Size reduction of devices lowers production costs, lowers energy consumption and enables increased precision. Current mobile phones are therefore full of microscopically small moving devices like clocks, microphones, filters, switches and sensors. It is thus very interesting to further reduce the size of these devices, make them move faster and make them more accurate. However, to achieve this is a big challenge.  Read more
