Introduction to nanotechnology
Henrik Bruus
MIC – Department of Micro and NanotechnologyTechnical University of DenmarkLyngby, spring 2004
In the spring 2002 MIC launched a new fourth semester course at the Technical Universityof Denmark (course no. 33320, 10 ECTS) to provide a general and broad introduction tothe multi-disciplinary field of nanotechnology. The number of students attending thecourse has grown steadily from 24 in 2002, to 35 the following year and now more than50 in 2004. Based on the feed-back from the students I have changed part of the courseand expanded the lecture notes.The aim of the course remains the same. It is intended for students who have completedthree semesters in any engineering or science study programme at college level. During thecourse the students will be introduced to many fascinating phenomena on the nanometerscale, and they will hopefully acquire basic knowledge of the theoretical concepts andexperimental techniques behind the recent vastly improved ability to observe, fabricateand manipulate individual structures on the nanometer scale.The first part of the course, which is covered by these lecture notes, is an introductionto the top-down approach of microelectronics and micromechanics. Here selectred topicslike the AFM and quantum transport are studied in some detail. The second part hasa much broader focus. Here the aim is to give the students an overview of the on-goingmerge of the top-down approach with the bottom-up approach of chemistry/biochemistry;a development that is creating new and exciting cross-disciplinary research fields and tech-nologies. Much of the material used in this part of the course is provided by guest lecturersHenrik BruusMIC – Department of Micro and NanotechnologyTechnical University of Denmark26 January 2004iii
