Nano-Sensor-Nanotechnological Engineering

Objectives


At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts):
 
- the approach and the different stages in the design and realization of micro- and nano-electronic devices by integration of nano-objects synthesized in a colloidal solution;
- the operation of a nano-sensor
The student will have understood and be able to explain:
- the main concepts and the experimental techniques used in the synthesis of nano-objects; stabilization of colloidal solutions;
- the main concepts and the experimental techniques used in the deposition of nano-objects from a solution into 2D and 3D arrays on a surface;
- the physical principles of nanoparticle-based sensors (gas sensor, strain sensor?).
The student will be able to:
- produce a sensor relying on nanoparticle arrays with particles synthesized and assembled during the project;
- measure the sensor properties and describe how it works;
- discuss the results obtained and suggest improvements..
- suggest a reasonable solution for building a sensor with the properties described above;
- produce a detailed analysis of the design and manufacture of a novel sensor.

Needed prerequisite


- Master 1 in Physics, Applied Physics, Chemistry or Material Science or equivalent

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
