Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology

This programme in Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology is multi-disciplinary, covering physics, material science, chemistry and electronic engineering. Explore how to scale commercially-available logic and memory devices, such as MOSFETs, SRAM, FLASH, and hard disk drives, also including the development of new materials and effects that exploit the inherent quantum mechanical nature of devices at that scale. You will also get a strong grounding in how to make and characterise these devices, learning about (and seeing in action) state-of-art equipment, such as: electron beam lithography; scanning electron microscopy; focussed ion beam systems; scanning probe microscopy; thin film, nanowire, and nanotube growth by chemical and physical vapour deposition.

Entry requirements
