Department : Rutgers Institute for Advanced Materials, Devices and Nanotechnology (IAMDN) - Microelectronics Research Laboratory (MERL)

The Microelectronics Research Laboratory works closely with researchers in academic, government and industry to help solve problems in multidisciplinary science and engineering and high-tech industry, to carry out advanced research in micro- and nano-optoelectronics, solid state devices and electronic materials. The capabilities of the laboratory include a dry processing area for plasma processing, thin film metallization and dielectric, thermal processing, ultraviolet lithography, nano-imprint and most recently atomic layer deposition.

This course will present an overview of thin film materials characterization with an appropriate selection of analytical methods for imaging and materials characterization in research. This course is open to advanced undergraduates, graduates students and science professionals. It will be especially useful to those who use x-ray spectroscopy, ion beam spectroscopy, electron beam SEMs, AFMs and optical spectroscopies.
