Optical Wireless Integrated Circuits, OWICs, continue to make headlines after publication in PNAS in April 2020. The paper “Microscopic Sensors using Optical Wireless Integrated Circuits" first authored by Alejandro J. Cortese, details an up and coming microscopic technology platform developed during his time in the McEuen group.

Ted Talk recently featured research being done by the lab in a talk given by Paul McEuen and Marc Miskin. Check out the video below:
"Take a trip down the microworld as roboticists Paul McEuen and Marc Miskin explain how they design and mass-produce microrobots the size of a single cell, powered by atomically thin legs -- and show how these machines could one day be "piloted" to battle crop diseases or study your brain at the level of individual neurons."
Continuing the tagline "anything, as long as it's small', a recent Cornell Research article by Jackie Swift showcases the proof-of-principle nanomachines produced by Paul McEuen and collaborators. Building on previous work with electronically actuated two dimensional bimorphs and electronic devices, this new class of machine opens up a new possibilities that bring to reality Richard Feynman's insight that 'There is plenty of room at the bottom'.
