Mercury Microswitches for Programmable Circuit Interconnect

Sorry, this project does not yet have a web page. For now, here are some photos from past research on the mercury microswitch and pointers to the MEMS lab where they were created.

An annotated photo of the planar process mercury switch (from C. J. Kim's Lab at UCLA).

Another photo of a mercury droplet in a test for the effect of patterning contacts on the voltage required to move the droplet (from C. J. Kim's Lab at UCLA).
