Electronic Engineering Department, The Chinese University of Hong Kong - ELEG5550 - Micro- and Nano-Fabrication Laboratory

Objective
This course covers principles and practice of state-of-the-art nanofabrication technology. These nanofabrication techniques are the foundation to build integrated devices and circuits with feature size below 100 nm and are widely employed in various areas such as nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanomechanics, and microfluidics. Students will learn to use the fabrication and characterization equipment available in the public cleanroom of the faculty of engineering. The top-down nanofabrication processes, such as lithography, etching, and thin-film deposition, etc. will be addressed.
