Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Through the lab-project, the students will work on a special nanosystem related topic. It will be adopted to current research at the Chair for Nanoelectronics and includes e.g. the design, fabrication and characterization of autonomous sensor networks based on carbon nanotube films.

Description of exams and course work
Scientific report lab-project (30 % of overall grade). By attending the experimental part of the module, the students prove that they are able to apply the gained theoretical knowledge in a hands-on lab and to document and present their achieved measurement results in a scientific report. The students have to hand in a 4-page lab report in IEEE style. They demonstrate with the reports that they have gained deeper knowledge in the specific topic of the hands-on lab and gained deeper understanding of the measurement equipment, and the devices under test. The show that they can use analytical tools, methods and programs to verify the findings. Students know how to document this knowledge in reports by using literature and with more time at their disposal.
Written test (60 min) in the examination period after the lecture time (70% of overall grade). In the written exam, students demonstrate by answering questions under time pressure and without helping material the theoretical knowledge of Nanosystems, the devices Nanosystems consist of and related Nanometrology techniques.
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
