Official Description

Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in mechanical engineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.

Section Description

Full Title: Nanoscale Fabrication and Characterization This course will provide a practical understanding of state-of-the-art, nanoscale fabrication and characterization approaches and the fundamental principles behind these advanced techniques. Lectures will introduce students to topics including top-down and bottom-up paradigms of nano-fabrication, characterization of structures smaller than can be resolved with light, and explore applications at the forefront of nanoresearch. The focus will be on two dimensional materials, which will be used as a case study to understand the broader challenges and opportunities of making and using nanoscale systems. Students will apply course concepts through labs and demonstrations to synthesize monolayer graphene, characterize nanoscale structure and properties, and engineer devices like graphene field effect transistors.
