Slideshow: Twelve shakers and movers in MEMS
On the following pages you will find the names and brief biographies of 12 individuals who have, or who are, doing much to drive microelectromechanical system (MEMS) components forward both technically and commercially.

Larry Hornbeck, is a TI Fellow and was the inventor and lead developer of an optical based MEMS applications at Texas Instruments in the 1980s and 1990s: the digital micromirror device (DMD). Hornbeck's combination of digitally addressible CMOS overlaid with an array of micromirrors that could be deflected rapidly to act as gray-scale shutter has revolutionized projection displays from cinema screens down to conference room and home entertainment systems.

Hornbeck has received numerous honors including an Emmy from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the David Sarnoff Medal Aware from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers.
