Nanostructures from the physical point of view I (WiSe)

Lecturer: Prof.Dr. Johann-Peter Reithmaier

Content of the lectures

The lectures consist of 3 SWh. The lectures are suitable for students from 7. or later semester of "Nanostructure Science Course" (required subject) and from 5. or later semester of "Physics diploma" (elective course). Basic knowledge of experimental physics, solid state physics and quantum mechanics are required.

The first of the two
lecture parts (WS) gives knowledge about the physical properties of the nanostructures. The lectures go into the dimensions independent of physical properties of solid objects and the dominating influence of quantum mechanical principles for description of the phenomena. Further fabrication and characterization methods for nanostructures will be discussed. The second part (in SS) deals with the application examples of nano-structured materials in the nanomechanics, nanoelectronics, optoelctronics and nanophotonics.

Content of the lectures:

1. Overview
2. Introduction
     * fundamental thoughts and differentiation from atomic physic and continuum physic
     * overview of the fabrication methods (top-down, bottom-up and others)
     * overview of the characterization methods
     * overview of the application possibilities
3. Physical fundamentals
     * mechanics and thermodynamics
     * electrodynamics
     * quantum mechanics
     * atomic physics and physics of the moleculs
     * solid state physics
4.
Mechanical and thermal properties of nanostructured materials
     * mechanical properties of the nanostructures
     * thermal properties of the nanoparticles and clusters of the moleculs
5. Electrical and magnetic properties of the nanostructured solids
     * theory of the low-dimensional electron systems (quqntum films, quantum wires, quantum dots)
     * electron transport in nanostructured semiconductors (tunnel effect, coulomb blockade and others)
     * properties of nanostructured magnetic materials and particles
6. Optical properties of the nanostructured solids
     * interaction of the nanostructured semiconductors with electromagnetic radiation
     * nanostructured photonic systems (photonic crystals, microcavities and others)
     * quantum dot structures in optical resonators
7. Nanostructuring techniques
     * top-down methods (lithography, nanoimprint, AFM and others)
     * bottom-up methods (self growth methods, Sol-Gel, chemical methods)
8. Characterization methods for nanostructures
     * scanning electron- and transmission microscopy
     * special scanning electron methods (AFM, STM, magnet. AFM, SNOM and others)
     * analytical methods (XRD, EBID, FIB, SIMS and others)
