This course will be an introductory laboratory/lecture course in which students make microelectronic devices, such as transistors, diodes, resistors and capacitors in the laboratory and understand how they work in lectures. The goal of this course is for each student to obtain hands-on experience in device microfabrication and electronic measurement, as well as to provide an overview over the general trend of lithographic miniaturization and nanotechnology.
