  • Prerequisiti: The Nanotechnology course requires the knowledge of classical physics (light and waves) and bases of quantum mechanics (formalisms and light-matter interactions). Knowledge of energy band models for metals, semiconductors and insulators as well as electronics bases (p-n junction, diodes and transistors) is required. Concepts related to charge transport phenomena and to the physics of semiconductors are supposed to be already acquired by the students. A good basic knowledge of organic chemistry is also required.
