Content and structure of the minor
The main goal of this minor is to give the student sufficient theoretical and practical skills in physics, electromagnetic radiation, modeling, optics, and in materials-related topics to master the general physical phenomena that can be applied from nanosciences up to space physics. The curriculum can be personalized according to the student’s particular field of interest.
Minor students can focus in one of the following areas: Nanotechnology, Photonics or Advanced Materials. Micro- and Nanotechnology focuses on operational principles and fabrication techniques of devices, e.g., LEDs, diode lasers, solar cells and nanoelectronic devices. Photonics focuses on production, guiding, modulation and detection of light. Advanced Materials focuses especially on nanoscale semiconductors, functional materials , emerging new materials, like graphene and other 2D materials, and their applications.
The student is expected to gain such a good knowledge in natural sciences that it enables understanding the basic physical and natural processes behind modern high-technology devices and materials. The student can also apply these principles to design and invent novel applications utilizing, e.g., nanotechnology.
