new silicon Molecular Beam Epitaxy that can process 8-inch silicon wafers
JPL is home to the Microdevices Lab, a world-class facility where spacecraft chips are shrunk in size while growing in capability. It's in this lab that engineers are creating increasingly tiny parts that allow for smaller, lighter-weight spacecraft that may someday explore the surface of other worlds.
