learning outcome

  • While this course provides an overview of a broad range of topics it will discuss theoretical aspects tailored to benefit EE and ME students that may have limited knowledge in material science/chemistry.

  • The students are provided cross-disciplinary scientific knowledge and professional skills that are key to strive in high-tech companies, emerging science based industries, government laboratories, and academia. 

The objective of this course is to introduce some of the fundamentals and current state-of-the-art in Nanotechnology through lectures from the instructor, selected readings, experiments, and special topic presentations from the students.

The topics that will be covered include:

NanoScale Imaging;  Patterning using Scanning Probes, Conventional and Advance Lithography, Soft-Lithography, Stamping & Moldling;  Nanomaterials - Properties, Synthesis, and Applications; Nanomaterial Electronics; Bottom-up/Top-Down Nanomaterial Integration and Assembly, NanoManufacturing/Component Integration using Engineered Self-Assembly and Nanotransfer. Labs on AFM, Microcontact Printing, Nanoparticles/Nanowire Synthesis.

The class size is limited to 25 students due to the LAB experiments that complement the lectures.
