Physics: Advanced Processing of Nanostructures
Course · 7.5 credits
The aim of the course is to give you a deep practical and theoretical knowledge of fabrication and characterisation of semiconductor nanostructures, which can be used in nanoelectronics, nanophotonics and life sciencies. Since the course is project-oriented, there will be a limited number of introduction lectures; instead, you will participate in the labs and in an extensive project work. The theoretical part of the course will be covered by self-studies.
The focus of the course will be put on different material processing techniques, which are used today in nanotechnology, for example, electron beam lithography (EBL), focused ion beams (FIB), nanoimprint lithography (NIL), reactive ion etching (RIE) etc. The introductory labs are aimed at giving you a "hands-on" knowledge of a safe work in the cleanrooms and some important technological methods used in semiconductor nanotechnology, such as EBL, NIL, scanning electron microscopy and others.
After the laboratory excercises and safety training the students will get access to the cleanroom under the supervision of PhD-students and the lab staff, to take part in a research project work to learn practical details of nanofabrication and characterisation.
