Transistors promise more powerful logic, more logical power

Broadly speaking, the two major areas of research at MIT's Microsystems Technology Laboratory (MTL) are electronics - transistors in particular - and microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS - tiny mechanical devices with moving parts. Both strains of research could have significant implications for manufacturing in the United States, but at least for the moment, the market for transistor innovation is far larger.
