Submicrometer and Nanometer Technology: Course Description

Exciting things are happening in the world of technology that are smaller than the eye can see. At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Professors George Barbastathis, Karl Berggren and Henry Smith teach students about the advancements being made in this field First, review the use of optical and electron microscopes. Students will study material on characterizing, measuring and preparing a surface for use in nanotechnology experiments and construction. Study lithography using optical projection, interferometrics, X-rays, ions, and electron techniques. Study how aqueous, ion, and plasma etching are performed and their uses. Methods for lift-off, electroplating and ion implantation are covered as well.

Students may download lectures, notes and study materials. For more information, visit the submicrometer and nanometer technology course page.
