Abstract

This course is an in-depth, hands-on exposure to the producing and tailoring of the materials used in nanofabrication. The course will cover chemical materials production techniques such as colloidal chemistry; atmosphere, low-pressure and plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition; nebulization; and atomic layer deposition. It will also cover physical techniques such as sputtering; thermal and electron beam evaporation; and spin-on approaches. This course is designed to give students experience in producing a wide variety of materials tailored for their mechanical, electrical, optical, magnetic, and biological properties.

Unit Outline:

  1. An Introduction to Colloidal and Self-Assembled Materials
  2. An Introduction to Nanoparticles and Nanostructures
  3. An Introduction to Nanoparticle Synthesis and Applications
  4. Quantum Dots
  5. Micro- and Nanomaterials in Bio Applications
  6. PDMS: An Example of a Versatile Material for Micro- and Nanotechnology
  7. Oxidation and Dielectric Materials
  8. Material Fabrication Utilizing Dry Etch Chemistry
  9. Material Fabrication Utilizing Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD)
