Course criteria & registration


The course will provide the basis for the understanding of nanoelectronic systems in order to apply them to their realization. With this module the students will gain practical experience how to evaluate and develop such systems both theoretically and experimentally.


Semiconducting nanodevices. Nanofrabrication. Spray coating techniques. Film functionalization. CMOS-based nanosystems. Hybrid systems. Autonomous systems. Sensors (gas, temperature, gas, bio). Energy harvesting. Through the Projektpraktikum,the students will work on a special nano-project. For the WS2013/14 the topic will be the design, fabrication and characterization of autonomous sensors network based on carbon nanotubes and graphene films.


Basic Physical concepts, materials, electronic devices, fundamentals of Nanoelectronics The student should have taken classes in Nanoelectronics Nanotechnology

Teaching and learning methods

The theoretical background to understand the operation of nanosystems will be provided in the lectures with traditional methods (power point presentations, discussion). Half of the course will be carried out in the laboratories. Small groups will work in a coordinated fashion towards the design, realization and characterization of different carbon-based devices.
