    ELEC-E3280 Micronova Laboratory Course, 5 cr ,Teaching Period  I-II

    The course is  primarily intended for students majoring in the following subjects

    • Micro- and Nanosciences, or
    • Advanced Materials and Photonics.

    If more than 25 students enroll, students in above mentioned majors have priority.

    The course consists of five lab works:
    1.  Thin film analysis using X-ray reflectivity  (Period 1, weeks 38-39)
    2.  2D materials for photonics  (Period 1, weeks 40-41)
    3.  Photoluminescence  of Nano wire (Period 2, weeks 43-44)
    4. Semiconductor nanowire analysis with SEM  (Period 2, weeks 45-46)
    5.  Photovoltaics (Period 2, weeks 47-48)

    Each lab work consists of pre-lab exercises, the actual lab work and a final report. Pre-lab exercises will be done individually, the lab works and final reports in groups of 2-4.
