Course description: 
This course introduces novel micro and nanoscale material processing and analysis techniques to students. Definition of microtechnology, nanotechnology and molecular nanotechnology, their comparison and interrelation. Technological conditions. Micro- and nanophysics. Thin layer deposition methods: physical (vacuum evaporation, laser ablation evaporation, molecular beam epitaxy, sputtering). Doping (diffusion, ion implantation). Lithography (photo, X-ray, electron beam, ion beam). Layer removing technologies: wet (chemical) etching, dry (plasma, ion beam) etching. Layer characterisation methods: X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, secondary ion mass spectrometry, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Auger electron microscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy. Conventional electronic devices: bipolar transistor, field effect transistor. Thick layer technology: screen printing, burning, thick layer pastes. Nanometer devices: single electron devices, resonant tunnel effect devices, micro-electromechanical systems, sensors, image detectors, displays.
