Spring 2020 IEN Micro-Fabrication Short Course


Spring 2020 IEN Micro-Fabrication Short Course

March 16th to 18th | Marcus Nanotechnology Building

The Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) at Georgia Tech will offer a short course on micro-fabrication from March 16th - 18th, 2020. This in tensive 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.

Attendance is open to the general technical community and is not limited to current Georgia Tech students or IEN users. Anyone interested in cleanroom fabrication techniques 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

Due to the nature of the lab portion of the course, registration has a maximum of 15 participants. Registration and full payment MUST be completed online by March the 11th at 4PM EST, 2020: NO EXCEPTIONS. No one will be allowed to register or pay on-site.

Atlanta Science Festival at IEN


Atlanta Science Festival 2020 | 2 Part Event: Science of Star Wars & Investigating the Nanoscale

Saturday, March 14th, 2020 | Science of StarWars: 10:00 am –11:00 amInvestigating the Nanoscale: 11:00 am –2:00 pm | Marcus Nanotechnology Building | 345 FerstDrive | Atlanta, 30332


Science of Star Wars
What might a “galaxy far, far away” be like? Ever wonder if, one day, you’ll be able to wield a lightsaber? Join professors from Georgia Tech for a discussion on the science and technology featured in Star Wars. Experts in astrobiology, robotics for exploring icy planets, and human-robot interactions will share their favorite technologies from the films and answer your questions.

This event meets in Rooms 1116-1118.
Stay late for "Investigating the Nanoscale,"beginning at 11:00 am.

Investigating the Nanoscale

How do scientists and engineers make and see nanoscale objects? What does your hair or an insect’s eye look like under a scanning electron microscope (SEM)? Through hands-on demos, learn what makes the nanoscale different, how harnessing it has led to improvements in products you use every day, and about future applications you can only imagine. Take a cleanroom tour and bring a sample (not wet and not greater than an inch in diameter) to scan with our tabletop SEM.

This event meets in the Atrium.
Come early for "Science of Star Wars"beginning at 10:00 am
