University of Southampton
Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology
Nanoelectronics and nanotechnology includes scaling of commercially available logic and memory devices such as MOSFETs; SRAM; FLASH and hard disks drives into the future in which these devices are only a few tens of nanometers long; the course includes the development of new materials and effects that exploit the inherent quantum mechanical nature of devices at that scale; students will learn about device operation, and also get a grounding in how to make and characterise these devices.
Upper 2nd class Honours degree or equivalent in an appropriate discipline (e.g. physics, engineering, material science). Students whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (6 in each competency) or internet-based TOEFL 92 (21 in each competency).
Semester 1: Nanoelectronic devices; microfabrication; advanced memory and storage; introduction to MEMS; microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip; bionanotechnology. Semester 2: green electronics; nanofabrication and microscopy; quantum devices and technology; MEMS sensors and actuators; practical application of MEMS; biosensors.
