Students are able to explain the mechanical and functional properties of materials in micro- and nanotechnology starting from the microscopic and submicroscopic structure. The can analyze changes in the properties and judge them for their applicability in new applications and can develop strategies for their implementation. Students know the various materials in micro- and nanotechnology and in sensorics. They have gained knowledge about the basic materials properties, their application and the fabrication of such materials. The students know the basics of fabrication of highly integrated circuits, the preparation of microsystems and sensors and how the materials have to be selected. For selected applications the students have knowledge about various methods and steps, materials and their control and analysis. After the seminar, the students have gain a deeper knowledge for selected examples, and they have learned how to search information and how to present this in a talk and to discuss the problems. After intensive discussions and group work during the exercises, the students can correctly assess and appreciate the achievements of their fellow students. They take criticism, heed remarks and accept suggestions.
After the scientific talk (presentation and discussion), students can present a scientific topic, interpret the research results and have to maintain a scientific discussion. So they have the ability to analyze, summarize, interpret and to discuss a scientific research topic. This shows the metacognitive knowledge of the students. Beside these aims and knowledge tests the students have proofed the factual, conceptual, and procedural knowledge of the micro and nanomaterials in the written examination. They have all basics available and the can apply this knowledge and transfer it to given problems.
Materials for Micro- and Nanotechnology
Materials for micro and nanofabriations, Top-down und Bottom-up principles, structuring, materials principles of etching, self-organisation methods, properties of nanomaterials, scaling laws.
Thin films, deposition, transport mechanisms in thin films
materials for sensorics
materials for plasmonics
materials for energy conversion and storage
Students can analyse a digital representation of materials and draw conclusions. They are able to convert measurements of properties to a digital representation of materials.
Students know how to deal with digital representations and can judge about deficiencies and limitations. They know how to extend the problem and find a solution.
After the seminar, the students have gain ed deeper knowledge for selected examples, and they have learned how to search information and how to present this in a talk and to discuss the problems. After intensive discussions and group work during the exercises, the students can correctly assess and appreciate the achievements of their fellow students. They take criticism, heed remarks and accept suggestions.
