The major goals and objectives are to provide undergraduate and graduate students with knowledge and understanding of nanoelectronics as an important interdisciplinary subject. Through the examples, exercises, educational Java applets, and lab experiments the course will cover electrical and optical properties of materials and nanostructures, chemically-directed assembly of nanostructures, biomolecules, traditional and nontraditional methods of nanolithography, heterostructures, and nanotubes. Students will learn about resonant-tunneling diodes, transistors, single-electron transfer devices, nano-electromechanical systems, etc.
Prerequisites: Senior standing for undergraduates (EE 423)
and graduate standing for EE 523
Corequisites: EE 418/518
