MEMS atomic clock

Forget about micromotors and SEM photographs of toothed gear wheels! When I’ll need to explain what ‘MEMS’ technology is to my family, friends and broader surroundings I can now resort to this as a useful example: you may not wear it any time soon on your wrist, but perhaps you’ll find it in your GPS some day. Anyway, the potential for making cool gadgets is one of the appealing things of MEMS for me – though not getting beyond the ‘grad school gadget stage’ is also one of the main issues. Here’s an abstract in Applied Physics Letters…
