CONTENT

MAT406 will detail top down and bottom up approaches for nanoengineered systems fabrication. It covers nanolitography / nanofabrication techniques, the fundamentals of shaping materials, nanoscale, lithography, nanoimprint lithography, step-and-flash lithography, unconventional fabrication techniques, charged particles lithography, and metrology. Etching, patterning and pattern transfer. Bottom up approaches, such as CVD, ALD, surface functionalization and and patterning. Self-assembly techniques, like atomic, polymeric, colloidal, biological, interfacial. 3D printing. Nanostructured materials synthesis as building blocks of nanosystems such as; nanoparticle, nanotube, nanosheet, vesicle, wire etc. Nanomedicine, drug delivery systems and nanosystems for clinical diagnostics. Health and safety aspects of nanoengineering fabrication methods.

OBJECTIVE

To expose the students to different fabrication techniques of nano systems and nano materials.

LEARNING OUTCOME

At the end of the course, the students should be able to:

list several different fabrication methods for nano materials
differentiate between bottom-up and top-down fabrication approaches
given the desired properties of a nano system, determine which fabrication method to use
list advantages and disadvantages of common fabrication techniques and compare them to other techniques
