Courses and Tutorials
ESC 213 at Penn State University (NACK Network.) Video lectures with ppt and pdf notes.
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.
There are additional advanced courses available in the Characterization and Metrology group. Topics include:
- Light microscopy and optical imaging
- Electronic Characterization
- Particle Image Velocimetry
nanoHUB-U Courses are created for advanced upper division undergraduates, but the Scientific Overview videos at the beginning of each course are at a more accessible level and provide a good overview of the course material.
Purdue University 4 Units, 42 Short Lectures
Taught by Supriyo Datta
The modern smartphone is enabled by a billion-plus nanotransistors, each having an active region that is barely a few hundred atoms long. Interestingly the same amazing technology has also led to a deeper understanding of the nature of current flow on an atomic scale.
The Scientific Overview (23 minutes) and first lecture of this nanoHUB-U course introduce a new perspective of current flow, resistance and conductance, embodied in the "New Ohm's Law". Even learners who do not have advanced math skills should find something new, interesting and useful in these presentations.
Purdue University 30 Lectures
Taught by Ron Reifenberger
Selected Topics: non-contact tip-surface interactions, intra/inter molecular interactions, contact tip-surface interactions, AFM components/calibrations, force spectroscopy, contact mode Imaging, VEDA.
