Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology

Nanoelectronics and nanotechnology include scaling of commercially available logic and memory devices such as MOSFETs, SRAM, FLASH and hard disk drives into the future. The programme includes the development of new materials and effects that exploit the inherent quantum mechanical nature of devices only a few tens of nanometers long. You will learn about device operation and gain a strong grounding in how to make and characterise these devices. You will also gain extensive practical experience in our research laboratories and in the cleanroom.
