Materials physics and applications in microelectronics

Objectives

At the end of this module, the student will be able to :
    
- Describe the main macroscopic properties of materials (mechanical, electronic, thermal,
magnetic, dielectric and optical) and relate them to microscopic structure -
the atomic and electronic effects.
- Master the basics of semi-conductor physics and the physical and chemical processes in
microelectronics.
- Simulate, manufacture (in cleanroom) and test an elementary component, such as a PN
junction.
These three objectives involve both experimental training and theoretical courses.

Needed prerequisite

No required knowledge
The materials course and ITEI must be completed before the cleanroom AIME
lab-work. The ITEI tutorials will use the results from the AIME lab-work. They must be
done after the lab-work.

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...
