A Special Training Course in Nanofabrication Technologies

17 Jan - 03 February 2016


Flyer Training Schedule

Over the past few years, India’s role in promoting and assisting development in the neighbouring countries has increased substantially. Beginning with his swearing in, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has repeatedly emphasised the need for close collaboration among countries in the neighbourhood. One of the areas that needs significant strengthening of ties among countries in our neighbourhood is science and technology. Inadequate availability of essentials like safe drinking water, public health facilities, and energy are some of the problems that are common to all neighbouring countries. Closer interaction in these domains will not only foster exchange of ideas and promote active research in these areas but would also strengthen people-to-people bond.

In this regard, through financial sponsorship by the Development Partnership Administration-II Division under Indian Technical & Economic Cooperation Programme (ITEC), of Ministry of External Affairs, and in consultation with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technologies (MeitY), Govt. of India, we are holding the 3rd Special Training Course in Nanofabrication Technologies for ITEC countries at the Centre for Nano science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Science. CeNSE was dedicated to the nation by the Prime Minister in the month of Feb 2015 and was established with support from MeitY to promote research and education in nano science and engineering. The Centre would like to help foster greater interaction among neighbouring countries through the special course being conducted (which may later become a Regular Program) in the very important contemporary field of nano science and technology, by providing training and access to its facilities.

The objective of this special course will be to train scientists on both the theoretical and practical aspects of nano-fabrication technologies, “starting from the cleaning of wafers to the packaging of devices". The reach of this course will likely be extended to a large number of institutions and participants through a variety of new and expanded initiatives, viz., training at different levels in Nanoelectronics to scientists from institutions in ITEC countries. The training program will be as follows:

(1) Basics of Nano Science and Technology:
Lectures by faculty members will provide an overview of various aspects of nano science and technology.

(2) Practical Hands-on Training
Participants will be provided with practical training in the National Nano Fabrication Facility (NNfC) and the Micro and Nano Characterisation Facility (MNCF), both at CeNSE. The NNfC houses a clean room with class 100 and class 1000 segments (a class 100 clean room, for example, is designed to allow no more than 100 particles (0.5 micron or larger) per cubic foot of air). Such clean rooms are critical to the fabrication of devices in the sub-micrometer regime. The NNfC houses a range of equipment, such as, electron beam lithography systems, mask aligners, laser writers, reactive-ion etching systems, a deep reactive-ion etching system, CVD furnaces, and wet chemical processing benches. The Micro and Nano Characterisation facility (MNCF) houses a suite of equipment, such as RF/DC probe stations, scanning electron microscopes, atomic force microscope, X-ray diffractometers, and a micro-Raman spectrometer for the electrical, optical, mechanical, and materials characterization of devices and structures fabricated. The participants would be provided hands-on training via the following two distinct modules. (a) Fabrication of a MEMS cantilever (b) Fabrication of a silicon solar cell, together with practical training in the MNCF.

Eligibility Criteria:

i. Participants must belong to one of the ITEC countries.
ii. Participants should have a Bachelor’s degree (from a recognized University) in any branch of Science and Engineering.
iii. Participants should either be a member of faculty who is teaching courses/involved in research related to Physics, Chemistry, Materials, Electronics and Communications, Electrical Engineering, and Nanotechnology, or must be a student registered for the Master’s/Ph.D. degree in Science and Engineering in an accredited academic institution/university in one of the neighbouring countries.
