learning outcome

After attending the lectures, students can describe fabrication methods to fabricate nanostructures and nanostructured devices.

They can explain areas of applications in various scientific disciplines. The understand the physical principles and fundamental of size dependent materials and device properties.

After attending the course, students are able to develop process flows to fabricate complex nanostructures. The understand the physical fabrication processes used in today manufacturing lines and in the semiconductor industry

After the seminar, the students deepened their knowledge gained in the lecture using selected examples.

After the event students have cross-disciplinary scientific knowledge and professional skills.  

content

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.
