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.
MSc: Upper second-class honours degree or higher (or equivalent) in a related discipline, such as mathematics, physics, engineering or computer science.
Compulsory: MSc Project: TT Technical Methods and Writing 2017-18; Green Electronics; Nanoelectronic Devices; Microfabrication; Advanced Memory and Storage; Nanofabrication and Microscopy; Project Preparation. Optional: Introduction to MEMS; Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip; Bionanotechnology; Quantum Devices and Technology; MEMS Sensors and Actuators; Practical Application of MEMS; Biosensors.
Written examinations and coursework and individual project assessed by dissertation.
