Dr. Amro Elshurafa, a fellow in electrical engineering at KAUST, recently fabricated and tested a MEMS zipping variable capacitor with performance characteristics surpassing those of previously reported by researchers at MIT and Columbia University. Dr. Elshurafa's work was published in the in the journal of micromechanics and microengineering (published by institute of physics). The variable capacitor was fabricated in the PolyMUMPS process which is provided by MEMSCAP Inc in France. The journal of micromechanics and microengineering is currently the journal with the highest impact
factor 
in the field of MEMS and microsystems. 
Congratulations.
