Nanofabrication Intensive Short Course at WNF

We offer a one-week survey course to students, faculty and industry professionals, as an introduction to key nanofabrication techniques, tools and methods. This course involves hands-on laboratory sessions coupled with lectures that give participants a more thorough understanding of fabrication technologies as well as firsthand experience using fabrication equipment. Course participants fabricate and electrically test multiple devices on single wafers and make a keepsake sample that represents their newly acquired skills.
