The field of micro-/nanotechnology has been gaining tremendous momentum, as evidenced by an explosive rise in the number of publications, patents, and commercial activities. This is an introductory course intended to expose students to the field and real-world applications. Lectures will include an overview of scaling of material properties at the nanoscale, micro- and nanofabrication methods, and essential analytical tools of relevance to the field. All through the course, we will go over electronic, optical, and biological applications of emerging micro- and nanoscale devices and materials.
