Spring | Graduate | Units Arranged | Prereq: Permission of the Instructor
Designed for graduate students who want to pursue advanced study in Micro/Nano technology. The course provides in-depth knowledge about low dimensional materials (0D, 1D, and 2D) as well as thin film 3D materials and their applications. Throughout the semester, methods to fabricate nanoscale materials will be taught. Then students will go through fundamental levels of i) thin film mechanics: stress/strain in films and thin film failure including delamination, cracking, and buckling, ii) phase equilibrium and diffusion in thin film solids, and iii) electronic/photonic properties of nanoscale materials . With those knowledges, students will finally learn about the applications of such low dimensional materials. This is a 12-unit subject with two lectures (3 hour) and one recitation (1 hour). Through the recitation, students will learn most updated technologies for nanoscale materials.
