Course content

Nanoelectronics and nanotechnology include scaling of commercially available logic and memory devices such as MOSFETs, SRAM, FLASH and hard disk drives into the future. The programme includes the development of new materials and effects that exploit the inherent quantum mechanical nature of devices only a few tens of nanometers long. You will learn about device operation and gain a strong grounding in how to make and characterise these devices. You will also gain extensive practical experience in our research laboratories and in the cleanroom.

Semester one: Nanoelectronic Devices; Microfabrication; Advanced Memory and Storage; Introduction to MEMS; Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip; Bionanotechnology.
Semester two: Green Electronics; Nanofabrication and Microscopy; Quantum Devices and Technology; MEMS Sensors and Actuators; Practical Application of MEMS; Biosensors.
Plus three-month independent research project culminating in a dissertation.
