Nanofabrication and Nanomaterials

This course is intended for beginning graduate students. The course will provide an understanding of the basic tools and materials involved in the fabrication processes needed to create nano‐scale structures and functional nanomaterials. Various nano‐scale techniques for thin film deposition, patterning, pattern transfer, and selective deposition of functional nanomaterials will be discussed with applications in the electronics, display, and energy industries. In addition to a theoretical introduction, students will also be given take‐home portable nano‐labs. Through the completion of these labs, students will gain hands‐on experience in nano‐scale fabrication processes and relevant nanometrology techniques needed to characterize these processes.
