Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
This seminar will provide students with the opportunity to give presentations on recent topics in the field of atomic layer deposition (ALD) and atomic layer etching (ALE). Special foci will be on use of ALD and ALE for modern nanomaterial and nanodevice fabrication, with applications including advanced optoelectronics, energy harvesting and storage, and catalysis; control of physical properties of materials deposited by ALD; interfacial reaction mechanisms and in situ process monitoring; and emerging trends and advanced variants of ALD and ALE processes.
After successful participation in the module the students can:
- Use and critically evaluate basic methods of literature retrieval,
- Condense their knowledge from scientific papers into a presentation and obtain presentation skills,
- Acquire additional knowledge about recent topics in the field of atomic layer deposition and atomic layer etching.
No preconditions required.
