6.S079 Nanomaker


Units 1-3-5
Schedule: T4, room 56-180, Labs Thursday 2-5pm, room 38-600
Instructors: Prof. Vladimir Bulovic, bulovic@mit.edu
Hands-on experiments with techniques for fabrication of microscale and nanoscale components. Students build their own light-emitting devices, solar cells, thermo-chromic indicators and chemical sensors. Relationships between energy use/generation and the device designs are highlighted throughout the class. The labs teach the fundamentals of top-down and bottom-up nanofabrication, exposing students to the basics of semiconductor device fabrication: lithography, doping, etching, metallization, as well as the application of molecular chemistry to nano-scale fabrication."
