Building tomorrow society: NanoElectronics & Photonics Summer School

when 9 July 2018 - 13 July 2018
language English
duration 1 week
credits 4 EC
fee EUR 600

Nano-electronics, Photonics, and More than Moore technologies such as MEMS are three of nowadays “Key Enabling Technologies”.
The Summer School aims at providing an introduction to micro&nano devices and photonics, with a hands-on approach that alternates lectures and experimental activities. The applicative focus will be mainly on the uses of these technologies in pervasive sensing, one of the pillars to enable “smart” applications, such as structural health monitoring, condition based maintenance, home automation...
During the week, students will be involved in the characterization of micro&nano devices and in the design and realization of an all-optical fiber sensor.

Target group

The program is designed for undergraduate students who have completed at least two years of a Bachelor program in ICT (Electronics, Computer Engineering, Telecommunications, Physics).
