The courses Research Laboratory Semiconductor Devices (PHT.311) and Laboratory Course Semiconductor Processing and Nanotechnology (MAS.301) both include 2 two-day laboratory exercises that involve semiconducting materials or devices. In addition, the Advanced Materials Science course includes a two-day overview of semiconductor processing technology.
Some of the exercises focus on the fabrication of semiconductor devices. This involves thin film deposition, lithography, and etching. In other exercises we will start with a packaged integrated circuit and take it apart to see what is inside.
