Engineering Science (E SC)

E SC 212 Basic Nanotechnology Processes (3) Step-by-step description of equipment and processes needed in top-down, bottom-up, and hybrid nanotechnology processing.

E SC 212 Basic Nanotechnology Processes (3)

This course is an overview of the broad spectrum of processing approaches involved in "top down", "bottom up", and hybrid nanofabrication. The majority of the course details a step-by-step description of the equipment, facilities processes and process flow used in today's device and structure fabrication. Students learn to appreciate processing and manufacturing concerns including safety, process control, contamination, yield, and processing interaction. The students design process flows for micro- and nano-scale systems. Students learn the similarities and differences in "top down" and "bottom up" equipment and process flows by undertaking hands-on processing. This hands-on overview exposure covers basic nanofabrication processes including deposition, etching, and pattern transfer.
