Exam Period: 4, 5
Course Language: English
Course Contents: The synthesis and study of objects with nanometer-size functional elements require dedicated fabrication methods.
This course will provide the technological and scientific background needed to master the methods of nanofabrication.
Subjects include: material properties and growth methods; pattern definition and transfer; self-assembly; molecular manipulation; methods of inspection, analysis and characterization.
The subjects will be taught with a focus on applications, methods, and practical models.
Study Goals: The student can evaluate the merits of the fabrication technologies for nanotechnological applications.
The student can design the processing steps for a nanotechnological application.
The student can find, understand and apply the relevant scientific literature.
The student can evaluate, model and understand the functioning of nano-objects.
