|A paper and movies on microchip manufacturing. Part of the process of manufacturing a computer chip consists of digging holes in silicon wafers and coating them with materials. At various stages, level set methods can be used to track the evolution of the surface profile as it is shaped and formed. One of the first steps is photolithography, which looks a lot like silkscreening.|
