You can now learn how to design advanced nanoelectronics and nanophotonics from the creators of nanoHUB, the global nanotechnology research and education portal, even with no prior background in nanotechnology or quantum mechanics.
A uniquely designed sequence of courses will help you develop a unified understanding of the essential physics of nanoscale electronic and photonic devices (e.g., field effect transistors, interconnects, lasers and modulators) as well as their important applications in integrated circuits and future electronic and photonic systems.
This Nanoscience and Technology MicroMaster Program offered by edX in collaboration with Purdue University - PurdueX builds all critical concepts from the ground up. Starting from the familiar concepts behind Ohm’s law, the lessons in these short courses lead naturally to a new perspective on even some of the basic physics concepts.
What you will learn
- Essential physics of transistors, including modern nanoscale transistors.
- How to design high-performance nanoelectronics.
- Technology considerations and circuit applications.
- How to model modern photonic nanostructures and fiber optics.
- How to account for quantum transport phenomena in nanoscale devices and spintronics.
