Courses

Microfabrication technologies

The student will learn the fundamental aspects of modern micro and nanofabrication as they are being used in modern clean room facilities. The course focuses mainly on silicon based technologies but introduces also other materials of interest for micro and nanosystems.

Manufacturing DLLs (automne)

In groups of 4 students and accompanied by an assistant, each student will learn basic procedures and manipulations, as practiced in a clean room. For each group, the TP consists of 3 sessions of 4 hours each.

Manufacturing DLLs (printemps)

In groups of 4 students and accompanied by an assistant, each student will learn basic procedures and manipulations, as practiced in a clean room. For each group, the TP consists of 3 sessions of 4 hours each.

Materials and technology of microfabrication

The student will learn procedures and applications of modern microfabrication technologies, as practiced in a clean room environment, in particular modern techniques that go beyond the classical steps of deposition, lithography and etching, with a focus on materials and multidisciplinarity.

MOOC: Micro and Nanofabrication (MEMS)

Micro- and nanofabrication can be taught to students and professionals by textbooks and ex-cathedra lectures, but the real learning comes from seeing the manufacturing steps as they happen. This MOOC will not only explain the basics of microfabrication but also show the practice through videos.

Microstructuring of glass

The course will provide fundamental key aspects governing glass as a material and the microstructuring of glass using a variety of techniques, like dry and wet etching, mechanical and laser machining, as well as sol gel technology. Also concrete application examples will be discussed.
