NMT 210W Introduction to Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology (3)

This course provides an overview of basic Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology (NMT) for Engineering and Technology students. The course will give the students an overview of atomic physics and the use of atoms to build devices and machines. Students will study the NMT industry and learn about applications in MEMS, bionanofab technology, and nanochemical applications. Internet resources will be used extensively in this course to aid in instruction. Semiconductors will be introduced and the student will learn about PN junctions, bipolar-, and field effect transistor applications. Included in the course are three project papers and eight hands-on lab experiments. Each lab experiment will require a formal written report. Computer usage will be stressed in both the lectures and labs. Students will look at transistors using PSPICE models and will use LASI to design a simple CMOS inverter.

The student will keep an Engineering Notebook for historical reference and documentation validating the steps and procedures used during the labs. In addition, the student will write seven engineering lab reports (six of these will be written as individual reports, one will be written as a team report). A research paper on the topic of nanofabrication technology is also required.

Maximum enrollment for NMT 210W is set at 25 students per section. In most cases, the number of sections at each location will be one per semester.
