IEN Micro-Fabrication Short Course

The Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) at Georgia Tech offers a short course on micro-fabrication each Fall and Spring semester. This in­tensive 3 day short course combines classroom lectures and laboratory based hands-on fabrication in the IEN cleanroom. The goal of the course is to impart a basic understanding of the science and technology of micro-fabrication processes as used in academia and industry.

This short course will cover essential micro-fabrication techniques including, photolithography, thin film deposition, etching, packaging, and characterization. Attendees will gain valuable experience by fabricating simple devices in one of the most advanced uni­versity cleanrooms in North America.

Attendance is open to the general technical community and is not limited to current Georgia Tech students or IEN users. Anyone interested in cleanroom fabrication techniques is strongly encouraged to attend this course. The course is suitable for both new and experienced researchers interested in micro-fabrication techniques and applications.

A course emphasis will be placed on IEN cleanroom resources, however, the concepts and techniques discussed are applicable to a broad array of research in this field.

Rates: *Rates include lunches on all days*

  • Georgia Tech Rate: $200
  • Academic and Government Rate: $400
  • Industry Rate: $800

Soft Lithography for Microfluidics Short Course

This course module is designed for individuals interested in hands-on training in the fabrication of microfluidic devices using the soft lithography technique. This 2 day intensive short course will be structured to assume no prior knowledge of the technologies by the participants. The course agenda is evenly divided between laboratory hands-on sessions, including SU-8 master mold creation using photolithography and PDMS device fabrication in the IEN cleanroom, and supporting lectures. The goal for this course is to impart a basic understanding of soft lithography for microfluidic applications as practiced in academia and industry.

Rates: *Rates include lunches on all days*

  • Georgia Tech Rate: $150
  • Academic and Government Rate: $300
  • Industry Rate: $600
