Eligibility:


In order to be eligible for a second cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme that owns the course. (If the second cycle course is owned by a first cycle programme, second cycle entry requirements apply.)
Exemption from the eligibility requirement: Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling these requirements.

Course specific prerequisites

MC2 cleanroom course.

Aim

We aim to give the students an introduction to research and device fabrication in cleanroom environment,
important for further activites both in research and industry related to micro- and nano-technology.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • get practical experience in micro/nanocomponent manufacturing;
  • acquire skills in autonomous scientific research and project planning;
  • acquire understanding of the phenomena and processing techniques involved in their project;
  • get hands-on experience of cleanroom work and processes in the MC2 cleanroom;
  • acquire proper laboratory behavior (safety, chemical handling, computer use, use of labbook);
  • get experience from working in a research group;
  • get training in writing scientific reports;
  • be able to put the performed work and the results in a bigger context.

Content

The students work in groups of 2-3 persons each. Each group gets a specific project and a supervisor from one of the research laboratories. The students make a plan for the work which should be approved by the supervisor.

The work comprises literature studies of the field and relevant processes, project planning, manufacturing, characterization, and writing of a scientific report. The course ends with a seminar where the students present their work.

The course is compulsory for students of the Nanoscale Science and Technology Master Programme. Depending on the number of students within this programme and available projects, students from other programmes can also be admitted to the course.



Organisation

Introductory lecture at which the available projects are distributed among the students.



Literature

To be suggested by the project supervisor.

Examination

Written scientific report (min 8 pages) plus oral presentation. Keeping a lab-book with hand-written notes taken during the project time is compulsory. The grade (pass-not pass) is based on the practical performance, written report, and oral presentation.
