Processing of Electronic Materials (E C E 544) Syllabus
Course Learning Outcomes
Course Learning Outcome
This course addresses the basic chemical and physical techniques used in the modern processing of materials at the micro and nanoscales particularly in the microelectronics industry. Simple device concepts are developed and used to relate the influence of the process technology to the device fabrication and materials characteristics.
The relation between the properties of a deposited thin film and the deposition process is developed.
The underlying physical and chemical features common to many of these processes is emphasized.
While focusing on techniques used for the development of both Si and compound semiconductor-based technologies, the use and extension of these processing techniques to other types of materials is developed.
