*MEMS, or micro-systems, are microscopic mechanical systems that combine some mechanical, optical, electromagnetic, thermic and fluidic elements with electronics on semi-conductor substrate electronics. They act as sensors able to identify physical parameters in their environment (pressure, acceleration, etc.) and/or actuators able to act on this environment.
