PHY 463 Introduction to Nanotechnology
(Also ENS 463)
2 class hours, 4 laboratory hours; 4 credits
This is an introductory course on nanotechnology. It covers the physical basics of submicron- and nano-size structures, methods, and materials of nanotechnology; characterization of nanostructures; and their industrial applications. The course covers (i) mechanical, electronic, and optical properties of nanoscopic systems; (ii) engineering approaches in nano-electro-mechanics, nanoelectronics, and nanophotonics; (iii) practical computer simulation and design of nanodevices; (iv) practical nanofabrication of rudimentary nanodevices with focused ion beams.
