Introductory Seminars for First-Year Students
Engineering the Micro and Nano Worlds: From Chips to Genes
The first part of the course will consist of a hands-on introduction to the techniques of micro and nanofabrication using Stanford’s shared nanotechnology research facilities, SNF and SNSF, complemented with field trips to local companies and other research centers to illustrate the many applications of nanotechnology, such as DNA microarrays, microfluidic bio-sensors, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The second part involves students proposing, planning, and executing a project to build something at the nanoscale. Examples of recent projects include biosensors using aptamer probes, fabricating nanowire springs, and ultrasensitive strain sensors using diffraction gratings.
