Summer 2018 Short Course: Microfabrication

The Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) at Georgia Tech will offer a short course on micro-fabrication from March 20 - 22, 2017. This in­tensive 3 day short course combines classroom lectures and laboratory based hands-on fabrication in the IEN cleanroom. The goal of the course is to impart a basic understanding of the science and technology of micro-fabrication processes as used in academia and industry.

This short course will cover essential micro-fabrication techniques including, photolithography, thin film deposition, etching, packaging, and characterization. Attendees will gain valuable experience by fabricating simple devices in one of the most advanced uni­versity cleanrooms in North America.

Target Audience
Attendance is open to the general technical community and is not limited to current Georgia Tech students or IEN users. Anyone who has an interest in microfabrication is strongly encouraged to attend this course. The course is suitable for both new and experienced researchers interested in micro-fabrication techniques and applications.

A course emphasis will be placed on IEN cleanroom resources, however, the concepts and techniques discussed are applicable to a broad array of research in this field.

Rates: *Rates include lunches on all days*
Georgia Tech Rate: $200
Academic and Government Rate: $400
Industry Rate: $800

Registration Opens July 2018

Fall 2018 Short Course: Soft Lithography for Microfluidics

The Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) at Georgia Tech will offer a short course on “Soft Lithography for Microfluidics” on September 21 & 22, 2018. This course module is designed for individuals interested in hands-on training in the fabrication of microfluidic devices using the soft lithography technique. This 2 day intensive short course will be structured to assume no prior knowledge of the technologies by the participants. The course agenda is evenly divided between laboratory hands-on sessions, including SU-8 master mold creation using photolithography and PDMS device fabrication in the IEN cleanroom, and supporting lectures.  The goal for this course is to impart a basic understanding of soft lithography for microfluidic applications as practiced in academia and industry.

Target Audience
This short course is open to off-campus researchers from academia, industry and government laboratories/organizations and is not limited to current Georgia Tech students or IEN users. Anyone who is interested in starting research in the area of microfluidics or PDMS device fabrication is invited and strongly encouraged to participate.

Rates: *Rates include lunches on all days*
Georgia Tech Rate: $150
Academic and Government Rate: $300
Industry Rate: $600

Registration Opens July 2018
