Silicon technology begins to be used for micromachines and optoelectric devices.

The techniques used to make intricate integrated circuits from silicon are extended to construct minute mechanical systems, for uses such as measuring blood pressure by the deformation of a tiny silicon diaphragm. A porous form of silicon, which emits light under a voltage, is examined for use in optoelectronic devices.
