NANOMATERIALS AND FABRICATION
Credit points: 15
In this unit, students will study many aspects of the structure and function of nanomaterials and small scale devices, together with contemporary fabrication techniques. Unit themes include: (a) nanomaterials synthesis and applications, and nanowires, (b) quantum effects in nanostructured materials, layered semiconductors and devices, (c) nanostructured interfaces and small scale devices, examining the "top-down" approach to fabrication, (d) introductory concepts in microfabrication, (e) MEMS and NEMS, (f) advanced lithographic techniques including photolithography, electron beam lithography, interference lithography, micro-contact printing and nano imprint lithography.
