Course specific prerequisites

FKA130, FKA195, MC2 CLEANROOM COURSE

Aim

We aim to give the students an introduction to research and micro/nanodevice fabrication in cleanroom environment, important for further activites both within research and industry within this field. The projects can to some extent be adjusted to the background of the students.

Goal

The students should
get practical experience in micro/nanocomponent manufacturing.
acquire skills in autonomous scientific research and project planning
acquire understanding of the phenomena and processing techniques invloved in their project and devices.
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 course is compulsory for the students in the Nanoscale Science and Technology Master Programme. Depending on the number of students within this programme, a few students from other programmes can also be admitted to the course.

The students work in groups of 2 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 supervisor will also give her/his input before the final work plan is decided.
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.

Organisation

Introductory lecture. Individual time schedule for each group during QII and QIII.

Literature

To be suggested by the project supervisor.

Examination

Written scientific report about the project, keeping of personal lab-book is compulsory, oral presentation.
The grade is based on the practical performance, the written report, and the oral presentation.
