iPEN: Innovative Photonics Education in Nanotechnology

The University of Erlangen-Nürnberg with the Chair Materials for Electronics and Energy Technology (i-MEET) contributes 3 Modules to the Innovative Education in Nanotechnology (iPEN project). It is planned to present following modules as on-line lectures with demonstrations in labs in Summer Semester 2020:

Photonic Sintering and Structuring & Lab Demo

Basics and manufacturing technology procedures where laser as a main tool is used will be described and summarized in this module. Physical principles of the photon interaction with semiconductors and metals as well as technical aspects of laser heated crystal growth and purification with a small floating zone will be presented in details. Physical and technical aspects of the laser utilization in a 3D printing and additive manufacturing technology will be considered and explained. Principles and possibilities of complex object creation in submicron size by the layer-by-layer melting and by the two-photon polymerization will be presented and discussed. The traditional and modern skills on photonic sintering and structuring in Si electronic technology will be taught. Finally, the surface structuring of silicon solar cells and structuring of thin films in the organic photovoltaic technology, including structuring with ultra-short pulse lasers, will be provided in the course as well as presented in videos and treated during the practical course in the labs.
Principles of SEM & TEM Imagine Techniques & Lab Demo
The continuous emergence of electron optics, detectors, and other fields of science has opened an entirely new class of experiments in materials characterization. The objective of this module is to highlight the importance of electron microscopes in materials science, and provide a global understanding the existing techniques, limitations and actual progress in this field
