The synthesis and study of objects with nanometer-size functional elements require dedicated fabrication methods. This course will provide the technological and scientific background needed to master the objectives and methods of nanofabrication. Subjects include: material properties and growth methods; pattern definition and transfer; self-assembly; (bio-)molecular manipulation; methods of inspection, analysis and characterization.
