MIT pioneers online lab in microelectronics

March 8, 2001

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – MIT students can now test and probe fragile, microscopic electronic structures via a novel online lab that can be accessed from dorm rooms and other convenient locations 24 hours a day. Although the lab’s focus is the study of microelectronic devices like transistors, the general idea could be applied to state-of-the-art labs in other fields, such as chemical engineering.
