Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
CHE 568 Conventional and Emerging Nanomanufacturing Techniques and Their Applications in Nanosystems
3 Credit Hours
(also offered as ECE 568)
The goal of this course is to introduce students to nanofabrication techniques and the fundamental properties of nanoscale structures. The first part of the course will cover conventional surface patterning techniques with particular attention to photolithography (the keystone process for creating modern electronics) as well as alternative methods such as imprint and soft lithography. The second part of the course will cover the electronic and physical properties of nanostructures. The final part of the course will discuss applications including microfluidics, 3D printing, energy harvesting, and interfacing electronics with biology.
